It's the not knowing that's the trick. You have two contact patches with the ground, and you really want them to be of known quality...

For me, I'm not a fanatic about it, but I think three years is the absolute oldest I would buy, and only from a reputable place, not off Craigslist or eBay. I say that because at the rate I ride right now, it would be several more years before I got to the center of the tread, and then it would be that much older. Starting at ten years, the tire might get up to thirteen years old by the time I wore it out, if it didn't fail first.

I would not install a tire on a wheel that is that old. It is more appropriate to use it as a shade tree swing.
