    Just out of curiosity, how was this tire stored?

    To answer your question, no.

    If you believe in guardian angels, yes.

    If not, no.

    It would be good as a second spare ;) Or as a tire for a farm trailer that doesn't see road use. Looks amazingly well for a 13 year old tire!

    I would not use it. Even though it looks great, I would still be afraid of it. Not worth it, as trailer tires are not that expensive.

    those who use way too old tires - good luck.. it put you and your family, even those who drive behind, sides of you in danger. Never know what a blowout can do to anyone. It is costly to use old tires - pay for damages to other vehicles and possible medical bills and time off work...
