I was dealing with a local supplier of Toyo tires and had an appointment set...until I told him I wanted the tires to be within 1 month of manufacture. That did not go over well and he said Toyo probably hasn't even made tires in 2021 yet, and that all that are available are tires from 2020.

So, why would one pay for new tires if they are not new?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I would settle for tires up to 6 months old as new. Requiring one month, especially on a tire not made in the US is probably impossible. Only RVers are obsessed with the age of tires, especially if you replace at 6-7 years.

They are new! Where is Toyo manufactured? If it's still Japan, how would you expect to find tires that are a month old? I have not looked into Toyo in many years so if they are now US built (not just distributed) I apologize!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I agree with Ivylog...6 months. The shipping alone will take a month whether made here or overseas.

One month is way to much to expect. I have always been happy with 6 months. Tires are made in batches not continuously. it may be 4 months between some lesser used tire and tire size even being made.

Yeah one month is unreasonable.

I would go another dealer. I buy all my tires from Les Schwab. I won't buy a tire older than 6 months.

OP is looking at a max of ONE month, tough order.
I agree six months is new.

Big TOYO tire plant about 20 miles north of Atlanta. Don't know just what tire sizes are made there but its a big plant.

Tires date stamped 6-9 months old are fine.

How many people have bought a new car that was sitting on the lot for 9 months to a year?
Tires 6 months old sitting in a warehouse will b just fine!
