The last eight tires we bought from Sam's Club, Dunlop 11R-22.5, and were 2 mths old.

The 11R22.5 is a very popular tire commercially, so the dates are typically quite fresh. But the nearly identical 295/80R22.5 is rarely used except on large motorhomes and often rather "stale".

Those are fresh!!!! Should still be warm from the factory, if my math is correct, they are 2 weeks old.

I just got a price from our local large tie dealer for 8 Michelin 315/80R 22.5 XZA2 and promised less than 60 day date. That's good enough for me.

Could someone refresh my memory about how to determine the age of tires?

The first 2 numbers are the week (01 thru 52), the second two are the year. Without looking at a calender, I believe we are in the 40th week of 2012, so tires made this week would read "4012". Hope this makes sense.....

The price please
Also why did you go for the 315 profile rather than the 295
I was thinking of 315 for the steer but wondering about the extra width on the 8.25 rim
Any advice??

The tire date code is the last 4 digits following the "DOT xxxxx" stamped in the sidewall (may be only on one side, so look at back too). There may be a space between the first set of numbers following DOT and the 4 digit date code, but not always. Read them as a 2 digit week and two digit year.

My local Michelin dealer is also an RVer. He got me tires that were 2+3 weeks old. Guess where I will go when I need another set.

I just walk over to 7 high dollar units (2012 & 1013. $200k to $400k) and looked at dates on the steer tires. If you are really picky about recieving 'new' tires on a 'new' unit you may have a surprize coming. 2 units have tires 2 years old. (Don't ask. I ain't tellin'.)
