Also, the clock starts ticking when the tires are SOLD - and the date of manufacture is only used in the absence of a purchase date (no receipt!) Check the warranty for details.


All of the tire dealers near me in Florida say if a tire is 5-6 years old they are not alloyed to repair them! One of these shops is the one that I've dealt with for over 15 years and trust! So, I would go be the date code on the tire not the date on a receipt.

Just replaced all 8 of my 22.5 with Michelin X Line Energy Zs 10 days ago. Two things:

Shopped several Michelin commercial tire dealers, most were $10-$30 under FMCA discount if I never mentioned the discount.

Some of the shops were high volume shops that had over 50 of my tires in stock, but they were stored outside. The shop I settled on ordered me new tires on request, and they were all dated 1219, or less than 2 months old.

I ordered the same tires and they too were cheaper without the FMCA discount. I unfortunately just joined solely because of the discount.
