    I found some Bridgestone tires for a killer deal on Craigslist, but upon talking to the seller, they are from 2007. They are 2 hours away, so not very easy for me to see them in person, but the seller says they don't have any cracking are 85% tread. Would you trust a tire from 2007? I know retreads are often on carcasses as old as 05.

    Usually the DOT says that tires arent supposed to be used after being 6 years old (im pretty sure its 6). What week of '07 were they made in? Its the 2 numbers before 07 on the DOT stamp on the tire.

    12th week. So they are about 6 years old.

    Normally I would pass, but it's 4 285/75/16's with 80% tread for $50. The guy just wants them out of his garage.

    If they look good id go for it.

    Makes me wonder though why so cheap, other than getting out of the garage lol

    He said he got new tires and just didn't like these ones. Not sure what that means, but people have their reasons.

    Take a close look at them, you might be paying him to take his junk out for him.

    Yeah I know. I'm seeing if a local member could check them out first before I make the drive. Thanks for the help.
