After the tire was changed he checked the date on the tire that blew and it was about 10 years old. They switched tires at the shop he bought them from. he couldn't prove it was the tire he bought because it was 6 months later and the shop said there was no way he could prove it was THE tire he bought there. So if you have your tires mounted at a shop, check the date after they are mounted.
Hindsight tells us it would be a good idea to have the seller record the DOT #s on the tire receipt.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
