    This issue has been in the news over the last year, and your smart to pay attention to it. If it were me, I would want the newest tires they have. That tire is already 4 years old, and depending on how long it takes to wear out those tires, they will be much older before they need replacement again.
    Here is some info on the topic of tire age:
