|In your tempature controlled house....a long long long long time.
In your garage where it freezes, thaws, gets real hot....a long long long time.
These aren't dairy products.

|If stored correctly approx 4-5 years they are OK. After that dry rot starts and you will see fine cracking.|
|Do they have dates on bike tires?||jose_Tex_mex|

|I know they have dates on car tires but I will have to go and check my bike's.
I have had tires that I did not use for 2 or 3 seasons until after I used them. They were fine and gave me another year or two.

|As long as they have stayed out of the sun and away from an electrical closet (lots ozone in there) they should be fine for a long long time. Check the rubber, it will be very noticeable if there is a breakdown taking place.|| |
