20 yr old Toyo tires

Bought a 98 Discovery 2 years back and replaced two of the rear tires, the front two (Toyo) looked about 50% and since Michelin was the tire made for it, I assumed they had been replaced in the past few years. Long story short, 60 mph in the midle lane, drivers front blows and I do all I can do to keep it on the median and not into oncoming traffic. Come to find out the tire codes indicate late 1990s mfg. While that really sucks, i thought it was also a pretty good endorsement for the brand so bought two new ones for the front.

Did you not check the date codes when you bought it?

I hope you have checked the dates on your drive tires as well. A blowout in the rear, while not as dangerous as one in the from, the damage they can do to wheel wells and anything like wiring and hoses can be catastrophic.

A good lesson to everyone to check and know their date codes.
