New Tires Acceptable Age at Installation

Iím considering replacement of my five years old steer tires on my 2017 Baystar. The present tires were produced in December 2015. My plan is to purchase two tires per year over the next three years, placing new tires on the front each year. I would purchase Goodyear tires, the same tires presently on the coach that have served me well for over 26k miles. Two part question for this group. Has anyone else taken this phased approach to tire replacement and what age is reasonably acceptable for a new tire during initial installation? My installer is suggesting up to one year old.

I just did my front tires at 5 years old. The rear tires still look great. But I've decided for me its best that when I do change the rears I am going to do 4 matched tires all at once. I decided to change the make (and a slight change in size) of tires from Michlens to Toyos- pretty close match but slightly different.

The dealer said that he would gaurantee the front tires were less than 9 months old. I told him don't bother installing them unless they are less than 6 months old as I would not accept them. They complied and installed 6 months old tires. I required that I inspect the date myself before installation.

I'll probably change the 4 rear tires to Toyo's within the next 18-24 months.

We replaced our drive tires this past summer. Personally, Iíd replace the 4 rear tires as matching set. JMHO.
Also, we requested tires dated no more than 6 mo old. After rejecting the first set, we got ones dated at 3 months.

I say no more than 6 months. But depending on the area you live , that may not happen. Also, do your research on Goodyear rv tires. Lots of front blowouts with heavy damage.

About a month ago I put on a full set (6) of new Sumitomo 719s. I told him no more than 6 months. This was at a small town truck shop in rural Texas. When the tires came in from his supplier 2 were Feb, the other 4 were Dec. I took them. I got a good price, the guy did a quick, great job.
