Ordered some new Maxxis for my 2103 Sabre BKOK31 and was wondering what the "oldest" acceptable date of manufacture is, so I scanned some tire specific forums and found threads like this:
I always get current year DOT stamp when purchasing new tires. No sense in buying pre-dried rubber. I get full value.

Great if you need a popular size and model. But tire companies make tires in batches and keep them stored in proper conditions until a store orders them. If you need a model or size that's a slow seller, you're going to get a tire that's been in deep storage for a while and there's simply no way around that.
If a tire is stored properly, 2-yrs on the mfg date is no big deal.
You just don't want them stored in sunlight and heat.
Seems to me 2 years is a bit "old" for a "new" tire. Any thoughts ?
