I find it more incredulous that the small Goodyear Racing tire division would warehouse 1000 "obsolete" 8 year old tires for a "just in case" situation.

Replaced all 6 of my Goodyears saturday. Man I hated to do it. They were only 9 yrs. old and looked great. I heard the price of tires were going up in July, taxes will be increased after the election, social security (my main source of income) is going broke, and my tire dealer needs to send his kids to college. Those reasons pushed me over the edge. Oh, I left 1 off, the money was burning my pocket.

Our coach's tires are 2003 dated 245/70R-19.5F Goodyears with a paltry 16,000 miles on them.

Due to their age and not knowing what abuse they may have had we decided to replace the front two. I found two 2012 dated Bridgestones "G" for $247 each online. After picking them up today -they looked so good, I ordered 4 more!

Never implied that, just found it strange that's all! How would you like to strap your *** into a car with them tires on and go into a corner at 218mph! I guess that is why they all own Newell, Prevost,etc.
