Just because your in Pennsylvania and they say Carlisle on the side wall, that doesn't mean they were made right down the road.

A Corvair owner I met years ago at Hemmings Muscleoalooza with a modifyed 63 convert-140 center mount rounded up some of his junk and arrvd at the CorVention a few hours before Fridays banquet. I saw the tires, he also had 1 other off brand white letter he was looking to buy a match to. I offered to "rent" the tire from him, he doesn't live to far from me, he wasn't interested, and wanted $40 for the orphan single tire. He was asking $40 for the pair of 185-70R 13's, and he thru in a 1964 Corvette air cleaner...

The tires I put purchased are date coded 2017 I think, and my 21 year old BFG'S have ZERO age cracks. I will try to post once we get home, 150 (of 600) to go, cruising at 55-60, 82f and overcast

This tire did this at about 5 years old. The picture is from today at about 8 years. Still holds air.

Forgot to mention this tire came apart sitting still. I'm sure it would have blown out if I was driving it.

For what it's worth:

Starting in the year 2000- all tire date codes MUST be 4 digits.
Also- the date code is only one one side of the tire mold- therefore the tire. Depending on if you want white letters in/ white sidewall in- will determine where your date code is.

For a while I was sending my unresizable images to Matt, and he would post them for me. But my crappy device still has four emails in the outbox, they've been there for a week, and they won't even send. So I just have to keep my un-aged cracked BF Goodrich Tire images to myself for the moment lol

I just bought 4 'new' tires for my wife's Hummer $107 each delivered with an additional $70 rebate, actually pretty good price, Cooper tires through Amazon.com. They arrived in about 3 days, three were about a year old, about average, fourth was 5th week of 2016. We filed a complaint and they gave us $90 back. So $268 for a set of tires, pretty decent. I plan to buy another and use the old one as a spare.

Check where they were made. Cooper has had serious issues with their Mexico plant. I have a ruined bed on my truck because of it. Young tires with plenty of air blowing out with no warning. They did pay for the tires.

I looked all over and could not determine a birth place, you'd think it'd be somewhere. The reviews on these particular tires are pretty good.

Its always there somewhere, its often small and only on side, usually closest to the rim.

I am as "thrifty" as anyone here about many things, but not with tires. I learned my lesson in the 70's with a set of Firestone 500 tires on my Corvair. When the tires were checked, 3 out of 4 had tread separation while still on the car. Replaced the full set with new, non Firestone tires that day.

In June I got my 67 back from 10 months in the paint shop and inspected the tires. Cracks in side walls and tread area. Next day all 4 tires were replaced with new Michelin's from Discount Tire. $452 well spent.

Earlier this year, on an old Jeep I purchased found the great looking tires on the Jeep were 20 years old with no visible cracks at all. But they were replaced anyway in the interest of safety.

Yep...tires and brakes. Shortcuts and being cheap in these areas is false economy. How much is your or someone else's life worth?
