At what age should car tires be replaced?

Is there a certain age at which time a cars or other vehicles tires should be replaced due to age vs waiting until they completely wear down?

Car tires can go bad due to age way before any tread has worn down. It's recommended to replace your cars or other vehicles tires once they reach 10 years old.

You should periodically inspect your cars tires and check for any cracks or bulges in the tires.

If you notice any cracks or the tires are starting to bulge out or looks out of round then you should not drive your car until you get them replaced.
