New tires came in at Costco and had them installed yesterday. Big visual difference between the 3 to 4 32nds on my old TransForce tires and the 14/32s on the new tires. I actually was not paying attention and DW had brought it up. Anyway, I did check the date stamps and was surprised to find a different date on each tire. 2916, 3016, 3116, and 0616??. So one is a bit stale but not in a worrisome way. I did record their positions so I can keep track of them as they are rotated and change positions.
A nice part of the Costco $15/tire install package is free rotations and balancing for the life of the tires... they suggest every 7K miles. Nitrogen refills as needed also. And if you have a flat repaired somewhere else... they will purge and refill with nitrogen for free... pretty amazing. Road hazard is also a part of that $15/tire package.
Not sure I am a nitrogen believer but at the price (free) I will buy in.
Happy Camping to all
