A look ahead: Aged tires have people driving on danger

(WMC-TV) - Chief Consumer Investigator Andy Wise broke the code on tires and revealed it to consumers, but five years later, those consumers are still driving on danger.

It is a blowout effect that is leaving people hurt.

One expert shared that some tire dealers are selling tires that they have no idea are aged tires.

More people have been killed since Andy's original report that broke the code.

The Action News 5 investigators will teach you how to read the code on every tire, and how to hold new and used tire dealers accountable.

Catch this report with Andy Wise on Action News 5 at 10 to make sure that you're not driving on danger.
