    As long as they have been kept in a climate controlled area they should be good, extra dry air can ruin tires if stored for an extended period of time. I still have the stock tires that came off my 2004 BMW and they are in great shape in my basement.

    They will work, but.....

    You need to check them out. The rubber hardens over time and ther is a good possibilty they will not grab when you need them to. This can be easily checked. Compare them to a new tire, I press my thumb nail into the rubber. You will see it right away.
