You should not have any issue with these tires due to 2016 production date. The only brand I would worry about would be either Michelin or BFGoodrich. I have seen Michelin Premier A/S with stickers still on them with severe dry rot along the shoulder of the tire. The myth that tires expire due to age is generally not true. I am the inventory manager of a large used tire warehouse and have a great deal of experience with this subject.

No idea if these are rebate eligible. I just saw the deal and wanted to share. Worst they can say is no.

Do not (!) buy a 4 year old tire! A saving that can possibly backfire.

Do you happen to know age recommendations for tires?

Agreed. And this is one heck of a deal.

My rig normally runs 255/50/R20, these being 255/45/R20. Shows a 3.3% smaller diameter, and the guidance for safety sets the threshold at +/- 3%. On the fence about picking these up...any feedback from the choir on whether it's worth the slightly over guidance variance?

My point of asking philie this question is why try to frighten people who don't know what you do about tire life limits. These tires have 6 years of safe life in them. Thanks for the response.

I got the same tires this year just manufactured in 2017. I couldn't be happier. Be aware that firestone would not install these but NTB will. Buy without any fear.
