That's what I was thinking. They'd get dried out before i got to use them anyway. I probably put 20k a year on my vehicles. If I daily the Miata probably 10-15. I'd be fine with replacing tires every 2 years.

Anyway I know the OP posted neogen in his options. Neogen users come out of the wood!

+1, I got a set of stock-size ZE-912s a few years ago because they were super cheap on sale, but I was incredibly happy with them. They are my go-to year-round DD tire recommendation.

Yeah I paid $35 a tire for mine and had a friend mount and balance them between cars at discount. Was like $150 out the door. Best tire purchase EVER. They were great until I blew my motor and they sat for a year and a half.

They supposedly exist in 205x50x15 but i've yet to find them.


Edit: Scratch that. I found the $56 a pop.

Gah! 2008? Get those ****** bombs off of your car! They're ready to blow, I guarantee it.

Low use over long time kills tires. Something about keeping the aromatic oils distributed throughout the rubber, rather than them sitting and gassing off. At my old job we use to tell people at least 25 miles a month, preferably in one trip to get the tires nice and warm.
