answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) routinely scraps used tyres through a contractor, therefore none are exported overseas. However, when tyres are attached to heavy goods vehicles, it is possible that those over 10 years old could be exported, as all ex-MOD vehicles are sold as seen. There is currently no loss of income associated with such vehicle sales.</p> more like this
