That is a question I am curious as to how all will answer, my situation was different as they were 12 years old and did not look hardly used. I read something here about tire age after 5 years regardless you should get new, however not being used I think the answer would be more to your advantage.Shelf life for tires not driven on what does the group think ? I was fortunate mine were made in Nov 23rd 2015. and actually were put on today the dealer called me asked me what I wanted to do with the old ones...

Seems a funny answer from them. First of all it doesn't take that long shipping tires from Taiwan. They just had them that long in stock what's seems unusual, unless the warehouse people used the fresh stock coming in.

Tires even degrade some in the warehouse because rubber get harder over the years. But since they where not subject to UV-rays they still will go for your 5 years of service and even longer. But since the Tire manufactures want your money they recommend 5 years. Yes here in Canada is a supplier who recommends 3 years for Trailer Tires.
