Tire help


Whats up guys,

its time to buy some new tires. Im currently running 285/35/19' BFG TA KDWs.

Theres a shop that has a great deal for all 4 tires but the manufactured date is from the year 2013.

Do you guys recommend getting those tires if the price is good? I daily drive my truck from work, school etc. Never track my truck or race.

What do you guys think?

As long as they were stored inside and there is no sun damage or dry rot you should be just fine. Do a good visual of them and check for cracks and things.

2013 is fine. I think tire shops will not install tires if they're over 7 years old. Those are less than 3. 3 years is nothing for tires as long as they're not dry rotted.

Date codes are 4 didgets first two are the week second two are year. A late in the year week date is a newer tire. still a 2013 tire Is not bad. It makes a bigger difference in the summer performance type than a all season. The softer the compound is the more important that the tires are newer build dates.
