After buying new Corolla of model 2003 in the year 2002, I used it for about 3 and a half years and also driven 11,900 miles on it. After driving for sometime I have found that there are some cracks on the tyres. I do not know the reason for that. I have consulted the experts and they have told me to replace the tyres . The warranty is no longer valid. I want to know why my tyres got out of shape In such a short period of time?

    There can be many reasons for this type of tyre condition. First of all , what are the quality of tyres that you are using, in some cases the tyres which are provided with new vehicles in commuter cars are not the best ones. So due to their poor quality the tyres might get out of order very quickly. On the other hand the matter of fact is how we drive the car. On what type of surface we drive the car. Some types of tyres are not designed for all type of conditions so if you are using regular tyres on a hard surface, it will cause in the problem and early deterioration of the tyres.
    There are a lot of reasons why rubber cracks, and one of those is excessive stress. Since you didn't drive the car much, I'll guess that checking the inflation pressure was not one of those things that was done frequently. Tires gradually leak air - and underinflated tires will cause the rubber to crack quickly.

    You might take the tires over to a tire shop and see if maybe the warranty still covers age cracking, but don't be surprised if it doesn't.
