2011 tires with 5,500 miles on them no cracks. How long is rubber good for? 10 years? They are General stock tires on a Silverado, no flat spots.

Depends on what you wanna use them for. I wouldn't take it for a trip but I would use them around the area for errands.

Depends on how much you like to gamble, and if they were stored in a cool place out of the sunshine.

Depending on who you ask.

The Japanese (Japan Automotive Tyre Manufacturers Association) recommend eplacement after a maximum of 10 years since the date of manufacture, and they are generally regarded as pretty anal.

Or at least they were until Fukushima.

No flat spots?

No cracking?

No chunking?

Run 'em.

You live in Eastern Washington state. That's a pretty cold part of the country. Based on what I know about these things, you're looking at a 10 year max. Phoenix - on the other hand - would be at the other end at 6 years.

Agree with continuing to run them, as long as there are no visible signs of fatigue.

Tires on my Harley are at least 10 years old. They look and perform fine.

You live in Eastern Washington you get some pretty warm summers. My guess is tires are a lot cheaper than a wrecked car. But its your car. I replace mine at 6 to 6.5 years even here on the wet side of Washington.
