|Riptide63||Look for a series of 4 digit numbers close to the rim. The last 4 digits will be stamped into the tire while the previous sets of four will be cast. The last 4 (the ones that are stamped) will be the date code. If the last 4 digits were 3207, that would translate to the 32nd week of 2007. Tires more than 6 years old are junk.|

|InfernoGirl||Check the Mfgr date on them, old tires are bad.... Look for cupping, and uneven wear, bulges in the sidewalls... that's all I have...|

Buying used tires
I want to step up in tire size from 30" to 31" BFG T/A KO's but I don't want to buy new ones. I don't put 3k miles per year so good used ones will be fine.
Plus, if/when, I decide to 'upsize' the tires with a lift I won't feel so bad.
I am going to look at a set that supposedly have about 7k miles on them.
What should I look for? What questions should I ask? What should I avoid?
You know the drill.....once again you smart people are asked to help a doofus.
