James Mitchinson Posted February 23, 2022 Share Posted February 23, 2022 Hi all, I purchased my first Porsche a couple of weekends ago, a 987.1 Cayman S. I’ve had a smile for each of the 800 miles I’ve already put on it in, with the exception of a few metres when the back stepped out going around a dry roundabout in 2nd gear at less than 3,000 rpm! Having checked the tyres I’ve found that the rear left is from 2012 with the rest being 2014 and 2015 (fronts). They’re Bridgestone Potenzas and whilst it wasn’t a warm evening I’d been driving for some time and it was above 5c. Tread levels are 5mm or above on all four corners. I have three questions that I’d really appreciate some thoughts on: 1) is it acceptable that the specialist sold the vehicle with tyres of this age? If not, what’s my best course of action? 2) is the tyre age likely to be the cause of it stepping out at relatively low speed/revs? 3) what is the recommended replacement tyre? The car is used all year round and will be doing about 5k mile a year (that’s if I can stop making up excuses to go for a drive every day!) Thanks very much in advance for any advice, I’m aware the tyres are something I could and should have looked at before buying the car but I overlooked that with all the excitement.
