  1. How long before you replace a set of tires with only 3000 miles on them.  I've been reading tires should be replaced every 6 to 10 years no matter what shape they are in.

      It's like I said in the forum post. The two things you need to account for are flat spotting and dry rot. Conventional wisdom says no more than 10 years. By then, the characteristics of the rubber can change affecting traction. A friend was driving on 20+ year old tires on a club drive and talking about lacking traction. I persuaded him to get a new set of tires, and he was happy with the results.

      I hope that helps.

  2. I recently joined this club and have several questions for the forum. I am the original owner of a '73 240Z. The car has 50,000 original miles and has been in my garage for most of its adult life. In 2001, I overhauled the car by: 1. Switching out the original carburetors and replacing with '71 carbs. 2. Removed the ignition points and replaced with an electronic ignition. 3. Replaced the engine and transmission lubricants with synthetic. 4. Installed new Pirelli tires. 5. Professionally repainted with the original color, finishing with a clear coat. My question for the forum is if the car is driven less than 50 miles annually, with only 3000 miles driven since the overhaul in 2001, how often would you change the synthetic lubricants and tires? Thank you.
