    I saw that just as I was about to buy tires for a 07 Taco and a 99 GMC Sierra. I made sure to tell the salesman I wanted tires no more than two years old. He looked at me funny and I said "date code." He said "Oh, OK" and the tires I got were all coded early-mid 2009.

    I don't know about the truth in danger of old tires, but as long as I'm buying new ones why not be safe and demand recent date codes?

    yeah a real interesting story...makes me want to go out and check the rugged fails. I am sure there OK, but I will be cautious next time I buy tires.

    I check dates when I buy tires. High performance tires are probably more susceptible to problems. Motorcycle tires too.

    I also suspect that tire age could compound low pressure. Often times these catastrophic failures result from a combination of factors.


    Edit: The tires that were put on my '06 before I bought it- stacked in the garage - top one is a 2809 - 28th week of '09. Of the snows I bought, three were 2808 and one was a 2509. So three were a bit over a year old when I bought them.
