Anyone throwing away good tires because they passed some magic age, I'll take them!

Have a set of 295/75R22.5's 10 years old on the back of my Kenworth T600. I use it to pull our 5ht with with. There still 70% thread on them. No dry rot nor showing any uneven wear. I will be swapping them out in a week or so. Not because I'm scared of them, just found a set of 14 month old tires for $125. each. These will last me longer then I need them. Or I sure hope so.
Now steer tires a different story. I lost a Steer tire a year ago Feb. That tire was only 14 months old. Still think I hit something unseen on the road. That was my second steer tire blowout over the last 40 years. First time was a 3900 mile Michelin steer tire. We got a bad batch of them in 1985. This last one was a Toyo. Replaced both with new Toyo's after that. Got lucky ordered them offline and they were 7 weeks old.
Now if I swap over to a Class A. Not sure I would take the chance of 10 year old tires. But would sure sure run them out to say 7 years. As long as there not showing dry rot.

I agree/6-9 months is quite acceptable. Then do your part afterwards by taking care of them.

They are new! Where is Toyo manufactured? If it's still Japan, how would you expect to find tires that are a month old? I have not looked into Toyo in many years so if they are now US built (not just distributed) I apologize!



Big TOYO tire plant about 20 miles north of Atlanta. Don't know just what tire sizes are made there but its a big plant.

Tires date stamped 6-9 months old are fine.
