I don't particularly like aged tires.IF the tires its the same brand and compound,a 1 year old NIP one will be inferior to a 1month old NIP.

As rubber age they tend to get harder.Harder means less grip....

So if you're buying tires...Get the freshess from the factory as possible

I would like to help answer the question but...WOW...is that english? I cannot tell what you are asking. It might be beneficial to those you ask questions of if you used proper english and grammer. I can understand if you were foreign and did not speak english but dude, you are in Cali.

I understand that..........

Aged foam tires are not necessarily bad because typically big races are High Grip so it keeps the car freed up. I'm saying like a year tops. Beyond that you run into dry rot issues.

Rubber tires are not usually too bad if they are kept in the original packaging.

sorry but i got my own answer already and thanks

What about making your rubber tires sit outside in the weather for about 2-3 days would it become harder
Thanks
