wow, this is some crazy shit! looks like its nothing to mess with either. i heard about the whole 6yr tire life thing a few months back in a Peterson's 4-wheel mag, but never thought about checking my tires(or knew how for that matter). looks like my cooper ST's on my taco were manufactured in the 3rd week of 2004. bought them in sept of 2005 if i remember right so that would make em over a year and a half old when i bought them. After inspecting them a little today, there are a few cracks in the rubber about an inch away from the bead, good thing theyre gonna be replaced soon. i bought some BFG mt's this spring to put on before winter and they were actually manufactured in 2006, 2 years old when i bought them..... oh well, i'll wear them out within 4 yrs anyways, lol.

this would happen all the time to the tires on the helicopters i worked on in Iraq. Goodyear made them. it was also 100-120 degrees most of the time during the day and they were filled to 150psi, i wonder if that had anything to do with it
