    Tire dates? hel.l you wouldn't want to ride in my truck, I got a tire that was put on new since had a flat down in Texas on a trip that was when my son was still a baby he is 12 now and I am still runnign that tire, not to mention the other 3 that am sure are about that old. I run em till they blow or wear out, tires cost too much even used ones!

    there are a lot of things the one can do and be fine....when it comes to tires i advise according to best safety thoughts.....i have had 2 13 inch trailer tires come apart with over half the tread on them and at 5 years old.....china junk! loaded weight of trailer is 1500#s, bike hauler.. cant get good usa made trailer tires anymore....have 2 others tires must be at least 15 years old and use them around town....

    I checked the dot date, and all is good. The spare is the same age as the rest of the tires.
