Very true! Each should be checked.
When I put some new slides together to add to a driving power point presentation in the fall of 2010, I went to the local Goodyear and asked to take a pic of one of their new tires for the class. They gave me a new snow tire they were going to be mounting to use. The tire was dated in mid-2008. So, that brand new tire was already two years old. Who knows how/where it was stored and how that will affect its life.
The only good thing is it was a snow tire and they wear more quickly.
