I found out that after even 5-6 years the rubber is no longer as flexible as it was when new and that it could be dangerous to use tires that are older than 6 years.. .
So I called the company's headquarters and complained. They told me they would call the dealership that was changing my tires to find out more about the old tires...
One hour later I received a call from that dealership and they told me they would give me a set of brand new (6 months old) tires because they "did not want to open a can of worms" here.
Ok, so now I get 6 month old "top of the line" tires --which I should have gotten two years ago anyways--but I am still feeling that I was wronged here and that I should do something about this.
I read reports online about fatal accidents caused by old (supposedly "new") tires.
The dealer from whom I bought the tires 2 years ago knew what he was selling me and he put my live in danger. He may be doing this to other customers as well... Selling 8 year old tires is reckless in my opinion.
