They tried to do this to me, I bought a set of 15 inch goodyears on clearance and when I went to pick them up, the date code was mid 2017 on 3 of the tires... I told them to either bring me new tires, all made within the last year or to give me my money back... the guy at the counter argued with me and said what do I care about age, they're new :facepalm:

But to those who don't know, they'll easily get suckered just because of the price. So anyone reading this, if you ever buy clearance tires, check the 4 digit date code on the sidewall!

MICHELIN INTRODUCES NEW X-ICE SNOW WINTER TIRE

These are one of the best tires to hit the market in a long, long time. Michelin has always just been a hair behind Bridgestone in terms of overall lateral grip and stability but these are outstanding winter tires. I've always been a Blizzak girl, but I'm seriously considering swapping out for a set of these this winter!

I have Blizzacks WSseries and Michelin XIce3 on the other. Blizzacks are better on slush, Xice3 better on every other road condition.

Michelin is far better imo thank Blizzacks for this particular model.

Lastly,.for summer tires if you want premium tires you don't buy these, you go for Pirelli. Not sure I agree Bridgestone being better than Michelin, Micheline has been reputidely the better tire manufacturer.

I was thinking of the Michelin Cross Climate but reviews are just so-so and some on tirerack say it's noisy. With all-weather tires, there really are compromises. I will probably have to replaced my XI2's from 2010 lol with these X-Ice Snow.

I read with Blizzaks, once the tread wears down, the rubber composition is different. We have the Blizzak DVS2? on our RAV4H though.

And I also thought about having to use jack stands (rarely used them) if I only use a set of tire/wheels instead of the current two set setup lol.

A dealer will often only offer significant discounts on a tire to clear out aged & discontinued stock. It's common practice. Why would a retailer, or even a wholesaler for that matter choose to lose money on new stock? Also, keep in mind that it's not uncommon for the manufacturer to ship stock that is 18-24 months past its build date. This happens often with low volume SKUs. So tire gets built, ships from that facility to the manufacturer's warehouse (this may be 90+ days if coming from overseas), sits in the manufacturer warehouse for potentially 2 years, then is shipped to a distributor and may be held in the distributors' inventory until it's eventually sold to a retail customer. This is less frequent with popular patterns and sizes. This is why warranties are typically offered based on the date of sale and not the date of manufacturing. The RMA recommendation of 6 years is just that, a recommendation based on the service life of the tire. A tire that has been in service for 6 years exposed to the elements, ozone, and constant load is entirely different than a tire that's been stored in a climate-controlled facility for its life.

its all ymmv imo, dpens what car u drive, how fast u drive, the road conditions, how GOOD of a driver u are , too many variables, of course always use separate summer and winter tires....don't ever use all season tires yr round, no no!

For CT clearance tires make sure you check the date, they can be 5+ years old.
