They offer me new tires, but the manufacture is now two years old. Is it negligible or should I go for other tires?
It is proven that after five years a tire quietly begins to lose its grip. So, the answer to your question lies above all in the use you make of your vehicle: if you plan to keep these tires for more than three or four years, it would be better to go for a tire with a manufacturing date. more recent. On the other hand, if you ride a lot and wear out your tires within two or three years, you can get hold of them without fear.
Remember, however, that it is better to opt for a tire that is a little older, but of good quality, than for a tire fresh from the factory, but of mediocre quality. You will notice the difference in handling, braking, noise level and comfort.
