Maybe good for consumer??

Quote:

Maryland House Bill 580 would require a tire dealer who sells a tire more than three years old to give the buyer a written statement that the tire is not new, and that many automobile manufacturers recommend that a tire should be replaced after six years, regardless of the remaining tread depth

It sounds like a good idea.
Maybe it will help dealers sell more tires in the long run?
And, of course, when demand goes up, so does price.

Isn't there a date code on car tires? Truck and rv tires have one.

Yes there is, but, I bet the majority of folks don't know it.

just put new tires on my highlander. No, I didnt have them roll the new tires by me and decipher the codes. I would guess that 99.9% of the people don't. now if you were replacing one huge $$$ RV tire you might.

Must have been a slow day in the Maryland House of Delegates. Guess someone stole the checkerboard.

If the tire being sold as 'new' already has half its serviceable life gone, I think it's only proper to notify the customer.

Moving old stock? Give appropriate discount and all win.

I just bought new tires & checked the DOT date first. They were from 2014.

Dealer had new 21 month old RV tires "The warranty starts when the tires are put in service" --I asked him to call me when fresh stock came in. The concern is not the warranty but service life....

Found it interesting that his supplier would not shop dates on tires in the warehouse. Although once that started the older tires would die on the vine...

I just bought a '99 Jeep GC and the date code on the tires was '00. They still looked fine with no sidewall cracks and when they were dismounted, the tire guy said there was nothing wrong with them
