That's some good information about tires....I knew there was a date code on them, just wasn't sure how to read it....Best thing to do is where ever you buy tires, find out how many they have in stock...more in stock means that they may be older than you want and ask to see the tires before they are mounted and check the date code for yourself...if they are old, just flat out refuse them...educate the retailer if you have to and insist on Brand New tires even if they have to order them in. But be sure to do the same check on the next set, because their warehouse may be full of old tires.

I've took tires to one of our local tire shops for work to be recapped for our big trailer use and they checked the date and if the tire itself was more than 6 years old, they wouldn't recap it....wonder why....

Very interesting story.....I did not know that. Makes you thank about what else is out there that is dangerous that we don't know about.

Good suggestion Smiley.

Airbags are only certified for ten years. They are very expensive to upgrade.
So if you drive an old vehicle, you have to decide whether to drive it with airbags that may not work in a crash, or pay a couple thousand dollars for new bags.
Something most people don't think about until they have a serious accident.
