> Is there a point at which "new" tires should not be used?
Yes, there definitely is a point. Unfortunately, the actual point depends
on many variables and the tire makers can't agree on exactly where it is.
Last I heard, though, no one recommends mounting a tire that is over 7 years
> Any issues putting them on a car?
I wouldn't put them on my Triumph. Maybe an old beater that I didn't care
about. But the last time I had an old tire fail suddenly, it not only
ruined the original paint but took off part of the fender as well. The
steel belts turned into a giant replica of those "flap wheels" for removing
paint and the damage was done by the time I got pulled over.
