Try jakewilson.com or rockymountainatvmc.com (same company, warehouse, ordering, etc.). Great service and great price, when on sale. They also have coupons, like free shipping, that can be found on coupon sites like retailemenot.com. Jakewilson.com is the site that I had read me the tire manufacture birthday codes before buying. Also, I could not find a site online that had a better deal. So, win-win....for me!

I see no guarantee other than lowest price on their page. I escalated with a supervisor and got no where. Ill just use it.
They say 5yr shelf life and that they pull off shelf after 5 years is exceeded. I shared my opinion. Id go with bikebandit or another next time.
Still will be better than the 14 year old tires on it now with lots of tread "life"

|Chris and Shim||Interesting thread. I had not given this any thought before about age of tires when I first get it. I'm looking to change mine out once I get enough extra cash put away to cover the tires, installation, and a spline lube. This thread started me thinking. Now my question about this: "Storage time", does this eat into "on-bike usage time"? I'll probably never put enough mileage on tires so as to wear them out. So my main replacement criteria will almost assuredly be time based. (The original tires I have on it now are waaaaaaay past replacement time.)|

Tried to call and do an exhange/return but mc superstore just said "because we have multiple warehouses we cant check or guarantee anymore" said they used to be able to check ..and a line about this being their busiest day of the year...
Guess i am using it but not recommend mc superstore to people.

The last time I ordered tires online (Metzler ME 880s) I called and had the rep. physically go out to the warehouse and read me the tire manufacture birthday dates on the tires that I would be receiving. They were six (rear) months and nine (front) months old. For me, less than a year old is acceptable, since I am am an old Yankee and frugal (i.e., want to maximize my investment or maybe just cheap).
You have about 2 years usable life in your front tire (before dry rot sets in). If you went cheap, then you may be good with that.

|OleDirtyDoc||About five years so you should be OK.|

The rear was only 8 months old, its the front that is 3 years.
Does that make a difference?

|Gaz73||You should be ok with the rear, from memory I think 5 years storage is the cut off point.|
