Track tires and date stamps.
I'm reposting this from a local forum to get more exposure:
Ok, so I was given a set of Pirelli DOT tires so I can make my trackday in October. But me, being the "overly-cautious-about-anything-on-my-bike" guy, had to go and look at the date stamp on them. I'm not going to say what it was, they aren't new, but I would like to hear opinions on the oldest tire you would take out on the track.
The tires have been stored in a cool dry garage after they were dismounted, there's no signs of any decay or cracking or anything. They were used for 1 race and a couple of track sessions.
So, how old of a tire would you take out on the track; assuming they were stored properly? 2/B/Intermediate level track rider, if that matters.
