As long as the tire are in roadworthy, your can use them (ever stock used over 6 years). Battery will be case by case.

i change my battery every 2 yrs, same day same interval, regardless of mileage,usage etc...never once did battery fail me for the pass 8yrs of driving. as for tyres, general rule is 40000-50000km but it depends on usage n visual inspection plus feeling while u are driving. if u feel it lose traction more often over wet surfaces and visually the indicators are showing,time to change even if its not yet hit the mileage interval.

Tyres needs to change at least every 40K to 50K depends on the condition and driving habits. Even you seldom drive the car, tyres also cannot used for 6 years la, rubber will harden even you are under usage.

Battery usually last from 1 year plus to 2 year. If your battery already more than 1.5 years, better change before it failed you. Cause sometimes there is no sign in failing battery.

My super4 tyres never changed since bought in 2005. Bought car in 2008.
I still ride my super4 bike, leaning in corners and in wet roads.
The Dunlop motorcycle tyres still got good grip. The threads still very deep.

Any recommendation if car has voltage measurement.
I.e. do we monitor starting voltage, or ongoing...?

stablise at 14.1 or 14.2V .

If on aircon at low temperature, 13.9V

If you look at the tyres carefully, there will be a lot of hairline cracks now.

When the car is running, it's the voltage from the alternator. If you do see any voltage drop below 12V, it's about time to change the alternator.

For battery, when you turn on the key to start the car, check the voltage dip . If it drops below 10V, you need to change the battery immediately. Normally it's best to change battery around every 12-15 months for safety sake.

Any recommendation if car has voltage measurement.

Here is my take for tires, every tire at the sie wall there is a triangle mark, this mark indicates when to change your tires, when the face of the tire is worn till it almost reaches the apex of the triangle, it is time to have the tire replaced. See attached picture.

U joking right?
The triangle shows where the wear down marks are on the face of the thread.

If reall as you say.....then all tyres will be botak and yet will not touch the tip of the triangle.

On paper tyres change every 40K or 2 years which ever come first.
For battery is every 2 years usage.
For stock spark plug every 40K

info above is base on paper only, you can drag a little longer to change if you are comfortable with it.
