New Old Stock Tires

There is a seller on eBay selling new old stock tires. These particular tires were manufactured in 2011 and are brand new.

Would you buy?

Tire manufacturers recommend replacing tires after six years from the build date. A way to sell more tires? Possibly. I would run tires from 2011.

Tire rubber is good for at least 8 years. So at least 4 years left in those tires...

if they are 50% off, great deal.
if you know you will mile them out in the next 4 years, better deal.

Lots of us run tires longer than 8 years, fantastic deal.

check the original warranty vs the ebay sellers warranty.

The only reason an ebay seller has them is because the original manufacturer does not want to put thier company reputation on the line selling something 4 years old.... and I'd bet the ebay seller got them for 10 cents on the dollar.

10-4.

So 1000 is overpriced for five BFG A/T's, 295/75R16.

Agree?

Brand New from TireRack they are only $231.00

I'd say $500.00 is high for 5.
Bet the seller got them for $50.00 each.
Thats how liquidation works.
