DOT Tires - What is the real age of your tires?

Before buying your tires, it is a good idea to check the date of their construction, E.T.R.T.O. (European Tire and Alloy Body) recommends that it should not exceed 5 years as the total durability of the tire is 10 years, ie 5 years (stored) + 5 years (maximum vehicle time) = 10 years.


Our practical point of view is that the date of manufacture is not more than 3 years because if a tire has not been sold during that time you may have traveled several times eg two Countries or 3-4 stores meaning that at these times the proper storage conditions indicated by ETRTO So that the 10-year life of the tire is valid, this view is of course hypothetical as we do not know whether these "trips" have been made.
