I'd happily use a 4 year old tyre but at 7 it's getting past my comfort zone. But who would buy 10 year old tyres as "New". Absolutely never for a bike.

That was my thought when I realised,and I hated that tyre anyway so sod it,time for a change Big smile

Since my off I've never trusted it on track and now I'm doubtful for road use as I think they went back to a more conventional profile on the later SportSmarts.
