We'll never know. It didn't blow apart... it just didn't stick like it should have (IMO). And it had the small cracks down inside the tread grooves like many tires start to get with age/dryness.

The tires on my 2005 r6 are from 2011 and I could easily run a level 3 pace at TWS (Texas World Speedway)/msrh with those tires on stock suspension. And actually my avatar is me on tires from 2011..

On my 2008 r6 the tires are from late 2008 but I just ride to work, ill replace them when I take it to the track or run out of thread.

On my 929rr I can check but I bet the tires are I believe from 2011

Idk I can feel where the tire is about to give out but none of them have dry rot. I keep up with the tire pressures but if I wanted to go fast then I would def look into new tires. But you just gotta understand you have tires and understand their limits
