We had an Inspection report done on a vehicle in Austin TX.

This answer was rated:

We had an Inspection report done on a vehicle in Austin TX. they said the tires were in good condition. Driving it back to CA we had a severe blow out east of El Paso. Long story short, turns out the tires were dry rotted and on since 1997 and THIS is identifiable on the tire. If we had know they were that old we would have replaced them before we drove home. As a result we have some major damage to the truck now that needs repair before I can use it.
