Just received 2 new tires from amazon. They definitely weren't treated too well during shipment and/or storage, have many large scuff marks where the topmost smooth surface is scraped off. Does this matter at all? Just wondering if this will lead to faster deterioration of the rubber in the future.

No, the mold release stuff comes off relatively quickly. Just make sure the tires weren't squeezed or compressed too much, like having a pallet put on them.

You have no idea of knowing if the sidewall enforcement in that tire has been compromised.

Agree, one can't see if the structure beneath the sidewall rubber covering is damaged or compromised, for now.

Hence, request for pictures was made prior.

However, until and unless the sidewall structure (which lies inside) encounters prolonged exposure to the external elements ......
and this has to happen through cracks or penetration through the rubber sidewall coverings (which isn't visible for now if it ever it exists) .......
for a prolonged period of time in units of month ,if not a year.

By then, the pre-conditions for eventual failure of tire structure would have been met.

This stage is yet to come, if it ever comes .... as far as OP's tires is concerned.

From the date code it appears the tires are two years old, fyi. What brand and model tires are they?

At least the first tire appears to be 2 years old. The second tire has the date code missing. Right where the scuff mark is you should see a date code. Hmmmmm.

They're General Altimax RT43. And yes they're two years old, which is also not good since they'd be going on a car that doesn't see many miles per year, so tread wear isn't an issue. The tread on the old tires is still perfectly good, but they're now 11 years old.

They are at least 2 years old. Notice the brown coloration and date code. The date code is missing on one. They appear to have been mounted before. Id send those suckers back and get a refund.
