Default Goodyear coming to the table with some smokin' deals

Goodyear recently went through their warehouses and found several tires with older production dates (2005 & 2006). These tires are still in perfect shape and have suffered no ill effects. The longer than average storage time in their warehouses their age makes continuing their storage not practical. With that said Goodyear is offering some special pricing

Here's the list:

195/55R16 DUNLOP SP SPORT 01 DSST $85.00 / $168.00 reg.

205/55R16 DUNLOP SP SPORT MAXX $62.00 / $102.00 reg

225/50R16 DUNLOP DIREZZA DZ101 $44.00 / $83.00 reg.

215/45R17 DUNLOP SP SPORT MAXX $68.00 / $120.00 reg.

225/55R17 GOODYEAR EAGLE R.E. $76.00 / $142.00 reg.

235/45R17 GOODYEAR EAGLE LS 2 $80.00 / $156.00 reg.

245/45R17 DUNLOP SP SPORT MAXX-A $68.00 / $148.00 reg.

215/40R18 DUNLOP SP SPORT FM901 $65.00 / $128.00 reg.

255/55R18 GOODYEAR EAGLE F1 GS-D3 $111.00 / $217.00 reg.

245/40R18 DUNLOP SP SPORT MAXX $105.00 / $219.00 reg.

245/45R18 DUNLOP SP SPORT MAXX $99.00 / $138.00 reg.
275/40R18 DUNLOP SP SPORT MAXX $107.00 / $267.00 reg.

245/45R19 DUNLOP SP SPORT 01 A $139.00 / $370.00

325/30R19 GOODYEAR EAGLE F1 SC EMT $262.00 / $325.00
(C6 Z06 OE tire)

255/45R20 GOODYEAR EAGLE RS-A EMT $190.00 / $390.00 reg.
285/40R20 GOODYEAR EAGLE RS-A EMT $192.00 / $398.00 reg.

some more tire age related info:
Originally Posted by TIRERACK dot COM
The current industry association recommendations regarding inspecting and replacing tires due to age originate outside the United States.

The British Rubber Manufacturers Association (BRMA) recommended practice issued June, 2001, states "BRMA members strongly recommend that unused tyres should not be put into service if they are over six years old and that all tyres should be replaced ten years from the date of their manufacture."

"Environmental conditions like exposure to sunlight and coastal climates, as well as poor storage and infrequent use, accelerate the aging process. In ideal conditions, a tyre may have a life expectancy that exceeds ten years from its date of manufacture. However, such conditions are rare. Aging may not exhibit any external indications and, since there is no non-destructive test to assess the serviceability of a tyre, even an inspection carried out by a tyre expert may not reveal the extent of any deterioration."

More recently, The Japan Automobile Tire Manufacturers Association (JATMA) recommended practice issued May, 2005, states "customers are encouraged to have their vehicle tires promptly inspected after five years of use to determine if the tires can continue to be used (recommends spare tires be inspected as well). Furthermore, even when the tires look usable, it is recommended that all tires (including spare tires) that were made more than ten years ago be replaced with new tires. Additionally, because in some cases automobile makers--based on the characteristics of the relevant vehicle--stipulate in the owner's manual the timing of tire inspection and replacement. Please read and confirm the content of the owner's manual."

Several European vehicle manufacturers of high performance sports cars, coupes and sedans identify that "under no circumstances should tires older than 6 years be used" in their vehicle owner's manual. However, it should be noted that European recommendations must include driving conditions that include roads like the German Autobahn, which allows vehicles to be legally driven at their top speeds for extended periods of time.

While American driving conditions don't include the high-speed challenges of the German Autobahn, Chrysler and Ford Motor Company joined their European colleagues in 2005 by recommending that tires installed as Original Equipment be replaced after six years of service. (General Motors declined to offer a recommendation until a more scientific analysis of driving conditions and tire aging could be completed).

It is important to take into account Original Equipment tires are mounted on wheels and put into service right after being received by vehicle manufacturers, so their calendar age begins immediately. However the same cannot be said of tires properly stored in a tire manufacturers' warehouse or in Tire Rack distribution centers before they go into service. Properly stored tires that are protected from the elements and not mounted on a wheel age very slowly before they are mounted and put into service.

Our experience has been that when properly stored and cared for, most street tires have a useful life in service of between six to ten years. And while part of that time is spent as the tire travels from the manufacturing plant to the manufacturer's distribution center, to the retailer and to you, the remainder is the time it spends on your vehicle.
