    That's absolutely terrifying, and absurd.

    I'm going to check mine now.

    Not to bag on the company because they have some awesome deals sometimes, but...

    If you purchase tires from Tirerack.com, make sure to check the dates on your tires. Also Discounttiredirect.

    As the story stated, this is nothing new.

    The more people see this the better.

    Nice post Andy.

    Now riding on 0308's.

    The original RE92s with 7/32" are 2203s - I was planning on retiring them anyway.

    My tires read "2J 1B" I am not sure what that means.

    Interesting. It appears my "brand new" F1 GS-D3's that just arrived today were made in May of 2005.

    How encouraging.

    My F1 GS-D3s will soon need replacement and they've been made in 06/06. Ironic.
