I may go Conti again on my '06. I'm still on my original set, and they are still usable (but they're getting close to replacement time.)

Get them replaced. Even if the have tread, they are passed time. The sun and uv rays have killed them.

The dumb-ass driver was doing twice the legal local speed limit when he lost control of the Porker in this well publicised shunt but I read on another report that another of the reasons was not only the fact he had modified the car [as well as the speed, his stupidity and his inept ability as a driver], but the tires were 9 years old.

Paul Walker 'responsible for own death', claims Porsche - BBC News

The lawyer's statement that ignored all of the obvious causes in trying to pin the blame on Porsche made me laugh.

Nonetheless, old tires are still not a good idea.

Quite right, but the manufacturing month and year is on the sidewall so you can check how old the tires are.

Well, got my Pirelli Verdi Plus A/S put on the Touareg yesterday, drove home and the tires seemed to drive pretty well. Had a little shake in the steering wheel for a few miles but it then went away. Kept the M/S and will change them out next winter. Hopefully these tires will give me a few years of good service.
