    Tire help please

    A little history: 98 WS-6,9100 miles, summer only, no racing, just cruising, always garaged...original tires (Goodyear eagles) As far as I can tell the tires don't have any dry rot or cracking. Are these things safe anymore or should I have swapped them out years ago? Thanks for any advice.

    From what I have learned being a tire installer for 14 years, the tires should be replaced 5 years from the date on the DOT code(on the sidewall of the tires). Tires have a "shelf life".
