    New/old tyres received - URGENT

    Hi guys, I just received parcel with my Anakee Wild set and noticed the tyres are made in 37/16 front and 30/16 rear.
    What should I do now?

    The rubber worm has probably got into them in the intervening weeks and is probably munching away separating the said rubber from the internal cords as I type
    To make sure borrow a Doctors stethescope get into a quiet place and have a good listen all round them.

    I think that there is recommended a "shelf" life for dealers, (which I think is 3 years?) and a recommended change at a certain age - 10 years from manufacture for car tyres

    I would think that it should be less for Bike tyres

    I would check the ages from the date codes

    How long do you intend to use them for ? How new did you expect them to be?

    1 year old isn't an issue in our climate. We had to watch for this type of thing out in the middle east though.
