    WoW, great info Denis

    I immediately jumped out to see the number on my Good'Year Eagle F1 Asymmetric
    Right now wind & snow here in Denmark...so maybe not the best tires to run right now
    ...but I found the number: 4708 - purchased in 2009, they were a half years old when I got them, I suppose it's o'k'

We checked out the manufacture date and they were 6 years old on a 2 year old car that was bought new. He went to the dealer and raised hell over this and got a new set for free. Honda has been very lucky that most of this has gone under the radar.

    LOL Henry...the tires on your bike? Don't drive too fast

    @NRJ: Scary story, not good advertising for Honda
    Here I was curious, cheat Volvo with old tires for new cars? Volvo has always placed safety at the top.
    My Volvo was built at the factory on August 18 2006 & this is incredible.
    When I got it from Volvo in September 12 with Conti Sport Contact 2 with this number: 3206 - brand new tires
    It sounds almost too good to be true...so I have put pictures up
    You can buy a volvo & enter the accelerator down
