Today I got a awesome deal on some
New 325/30/20 tires by Dunlop sport max gt. Going on a 20x11 wheel.

Dated 2013.
5 years old . I know right.

So how old is too old for new tires?

I have always thought 6 years. Then replace if they make it that long.

You may have issues getting them mounted - some of the tire chains around here won't mount tires over 5 years old.

The rubber will likely be greasy with reduced traction even if they don't rot- with that said I think the tires on my beater truck are like 10 years old. Lol

This. Six years is the industry standard, all of the tire manufacturers we deal with at work will not warranty any tire that is six years or older. We won't even touch them either if they are that old.
