Very soon there will be no more second hand tyres to buy in Nigeria. Standards Organization of Nigeria have embarked on a mission to get rid of all fairly used tyres being sold in Nigeria and have also stopped the importation of these tyres, because according to them, ‘second-hand tyres are killers like HIV/AIDS’.
The executives at Ladipo market, the most popular auto market in Lagos, have asked traders in the market to stop selling fairly-used tyres. SON gave the traders until August 17th to get rid of the 'killer' tyres of face the wrath of the law.
I don't know if second tyres are killers like HIV/AIDS but I know they are so useless. I used to buy them...like every three months...lol. The brand new tyres were so expensive, so we settled for the N3/4k ones that will serve you for just a few months...if you're lucky! :-)
