It is so you won't kill yourself or your family.

They're cheap because they are dumping them on the market before they could not sell them through any distribution channels, and Walmart helping them just shows how much the Walmart commie kids value American's lives.

Go back and cancel your orders if you value your life. You won't be saving anything, because you'll have to toss them in one year.

I ran Nokias on my Ram 3500 with Lance camper on it. Noisier, did not drive as well , nor last as long as the Michelins that came with the used truck. About 35K, as I recall. But they WERE on there, mostly sitting in my garage her, for 8 years while we mostly lived in Kotzebue. Just sitting there isn't all that good .....

Now running Michelins again, year around, less in the winter. I won't buy Nokias again.

I probably should change that spare out also, which came with the truck in 2005 and has been used once a couple years later. And that's when I went with the Nokia. It is a Michelin, but It doesn't match the tread on there now, so I can't do 5 tire rotation.

Reminds me - I gotta do oil change and tire rotation. Every 5K...or so.

There was a Tire thread SamOlson started here last year, that a lot of people became educated about riding on tires past their life cycle DOT date with tread remaining:

https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbt.../replacing-tires-due-to-age#Post13956444

In that thread I provided information too, like Discount Tire will NOT mount a tire that is over 5 years old past DOT date. Harley dealers will not test ride a bike they have worked on if they are over 6 years past DOT date, some use 5 years as the cutoff.

You were in SamOlson's tire thread commenting, so you are fully aware of the facts above I just mentioned, so that means you are nothing but a troll to be running your mouth towards me concerning this topic.

Well, this person is quite declarative and commanding. I don't remove and toss tires when someone says I must, and the goverment does not force me to do so either. Yes, some tires seem to deteriorate with age, and usually due to how/where sitting over that time. Over the past 6 months I relocated quite a number of old vehicles the 300 miles from our mountain place down to the desert - most of them when it was over 100 degrees for the final 120 miles. All of the tires had very good tread and sidewalls when inspected before the drive All of them are at least 10 years old - some fifteen years. None failed. YMMV

lol..'need'....uh no.

I've had classic vehicles with tires that were 20+ years old and in decent shape.
I wouldn't recommend a road trip on tires that old, but if they are protected from the sun and maintained they can last a helluva long time.

I don't have a care in the world about these new tires. they'll be fine.

Ran two successive sets of Nokian 245/85/16 mud/snow fairly aggressive tread on the big Dodge for bad weather driving up in the high country. They were excellent.

Now that the speed limit is 80 on our local interstates, people drive 90 (+).

If you are driving that fast, tire integrity must be more critical.

I'm the guy driving 60-65 in the slow lane....sorry.

You compare me to a democrat, AND you chop out the bold part of my post above which proves you were trolling me, just like ALL closet democrats do. People like you, and closet democrats never can debate the facts when they prove you wrong. Always have to obfuscate and cut out the part of posts proving you wrong.

Go pizz off clown.

You're the one pointing people to go buy tires they could get killed on running 70-75 MPH down the highway, after they become unsafe in 1 year, and being fully aware of the DOT date expiring from the tire thread from last year.

This thread wasn't about unloading a classic / show car you cruise around the neighborhood in or farm vehicles that never leave the farm, and everyone knows that.

Nice try, but no cigar.

Do these tires have some sort of self-destruct device?

Just because our nanny government says they can't be sold after a certain date doesn't make them suddenly unsafe. Ten years is a far more realistic life for good to excellent tires.

If government "experts" say not to SELL them after a certain date it stands to reason that a realistic serviceable lifetime exists after the sell-by date. These aren't fish fillets or hamburger.

DOT mandated manufacture dates on tires starting in 2000. What happened before that? Was there a rash of crashes attributed to old tires prior to that?
