Just to put more credence on that thought.

My daughter is driving my one ton dually, pulling my big tandem axle trailer 5,000 miles round trip to bring her stuff down here from Fort Wayne, IN.

The tires on the trailer "looked new", but had some tiny cracks in the side walls that worried me. I asked her to stop by the tire store I've used for 20 years.

I got a phone call from the tire store, "John, the date codes on those new tires are 10 years old." :shock:

I didn't hesitate a second, I told him to make that trailer safe for my daughter to pull. Old Stock new rubber is not worth the trouble it takes to mount on the rims...
