So would anyone suggest I run out and replace the 8 year old oem spare on my 2000 Sub? Used only twice.

Interesting that the Rubber Industry guy says not to panic people. Seems like an awful good way to sell alot more tires. Counterpoint is that for the Rubber Industry to accept this study puts them on the liability hook for many tire failures and losses until expiration dates are clearly stamped on tires and communicated.

Interesting game being played out.

side note: no info offered on tires stored inside vehicle vs outside, under vehicle or on rear door, covered or uncovered, used or not used.
