Before you buy new tires

You should read this article. The general idea of the article is that tires have a shelf life. If you get a tire that was made 8 years ago, you are more likely to have a blowout. They have some tricks to show you to determine when the tire was made.

Mine were made in October 2005... Sounds like they were almost new when they were put on my '06. I'll be checking tires for the dates from now on.

Thanks!

I think buying tires from your local dealers you will be pretty safe, but where the problem has surfaced is buying automotive and motorcycle tires from internet web sites you might be buying some old tires.

oops...sorry for the repost. I figure that I spend so much time here that I rarely miss a post.
