But the real question stone is "How old were the 'brand new' tires you purchased?" That is the point of the story. These tires were several years old and being sold as new.

The service life of tires is about five years, while the storage life of tires can exceed ten years. Anything five years old and newer should be fine, and personally, I would rather they sell me the ten-year-old tire than sell it to someone else who could not tell when the tire needed replacing based on age.
