Like trailers, lightly used cars will almost certainly need tyres replacing on age not tread depth. Same goes for fwd car that haven't had the rears rotated ever.
They are 0417.

My car has just had a rather savage list of advises on all four tyres due to cracking. Car is 5 years old on original tyres with 5-6mm on all. They are Bridgestone Turanzas. My previous car had Bridgestone Potenzas, and they all cracked as well.
Seems like they are prone to it, but what brand to buy next?? From comments here, it seems most do.
