We work on a first in first out inventory system, and our guys are usually pretty good about not having too much stock. There are some cases when we'll have old stock or a manufacturer will have stock in thier warehouse that 4 years old or so. In that case, we drastically reduce the price and make sure the customer is aware they are buying a 4 year old tire.

Even in that case though the tires were properly stored for their life in climate controlled warehouses and never sat out in the sun like at a gas station.
