It pays to be an informed consumer, both in terms of finance and safety.
If you’ve bought old tires recently, hopefully you have save your receipts.
But the manufacturers don’t make it easy on you to figure this out.
It turns out that tires have cryptic codes on them.
Go back to the place you purchased from and see if they’ll swap newly manufactured tires (or demand it).
If that doesn’t work, you should at least be able to get a credit towards new tires.
Example of a tire manufactured since 2000 with the current Tire Identification Number format: While the entire Tire Identification Number is required to be branded onto one sidewall of every tire, current regulations also require that DOT and the first digits of the Tire Identification Number must also be branded onto the opposite sidewall.Some retailers were selling tires as old as 12 years!You have to wonder how much of this is corporate mandate versus ignorance.I used to think, “the tread looks great, no bald or worn out spots, these things could last at least a couple more years”.They may last another three years, but your tread has little to do with it. Tires are made of rubber, obviously, and when rubber gets old, it starts to dry and crack (often times from the inside out – this process is not always visible to the naked eye).
