Default Take-Offs

So I'm picking up a set of 2012 Siverado 2500 wheels/tires from CL. The tires rode from the dealer, to the guy's house where he pulled them off and lifted the truck. They have been sitting ever since. Will I need new tires or am I ok using these?

Thanks

I would think the tires should be ok. I do believe the bolt pattern is different on those trucks tho so you'll need wheel adapters if I'm not mistaken. You probably are already aware of that, just throwin it out there.

yeah, adapters are another $150 for a set of 4. But $650 for a set of wheels and tires is a deal and a half!

I would not use those tires. They’re probably 7 years old.

Stored indoors in a dark closet. Might be ok?

Michelin's are NOTORIOUS for coming apart at anything over 5 years old. It's your call, but I would watch them CLOSELY! And storing them indoors can be just as bad or sometimes worse. I remember years back somebody I know had a tire durometer, and he said tires stored in atticks were always the worst about hardening. He said it would be weird though because the part that air didn't touch would be good, the rest junk. Tires need to be stored so oxygen doesn't contact them to preserve them.

So it wasnít really an attic, so much as an upper level inside a warehouse. There is no cracking, and they are not browning. I will watch them. Iím more worried about the spacers. Iím gonna need new lug nuts for the wheels but will the stock lugs Work in the spacers? Thanks for the advice.

If you bought decent spacers they will come with lug nuts, the factory ones are most likely too long and too wide for the spacers
