Not tape related, but did you check the date on the tires? Those on my new '08 purchase looked almost brand new with a build date of 2014. The new tires ride a lot softer.....and not as likely to blow out or go flat.
Do you know how to read the build date? You will find a small oval with 4 numbers in it. The first two is the week, the last two is the year. Thus 5122 would be the 51'st week of 2022. Sending early spring and blue sky wishes.According to my research, the original tires on this car were replaced in Oct’14 with 6yr/40,000 mile Cooper Zeon RSE-A tires. By my calculation they are now 8 yrs old and have only 4000 miles on them. I’m thinking about replacing them next spring.
