I just received a eBay purchased tire advertised as "Brand New". While it is certainly unused, the manufacture date is week 19 of 2018. I have several motorcycles I ride and tire life is determined by time and not wear as I don't put much more than a couple hundred miles on each per year. I'm looking at this as I've already lost 2 years of tire life. My dilemma is what are the odds that I'll get a newer tire if I send this one back and buy one from one of the larger retailers? Any experience to share? I'd hate to go through the efforts of shipping this one back and ordering another just to be in the same situation...or worse. Thoughts? Chris Edit: I have no motorcycle tire retailers in my area that carry Shinko 230's, so I'm limited to buying online.
