Hi, everyone. Just brought home a 98 VFR, clean with high miles. It rides like new, except the front tire is very worn. PO included a box of parts, and in there is a brand new Michelin Pilot Power, but the manufacture date is 2013 (inside the oval reads 0613). It was stored in a basement inside its plastic wrappings, and doesn't feel any harder than the new tires on my other bike. I'll need to pay $50 for mounting around here, and I could be safe and get an actual new new tire for about $140. Do I go ahead and mount the old one and not worry about it, or do I spend a little extra and get a brand new tire just to be safe? I'm not an extreme rider, but I do enjoy pushing hard through twisty roads.
