I have an old (10 years) set of Hoosier rain tires, used only a few times. From experience, I know Hoosier slicks older than a 3 years can (and will) bubble and delaminate. How old is too old for rain tires for a mid-packer.
In other words, Is an old set of Rains better than a newish set of slicks in mild rain/dampness. Will the water keep the old rain tire cool enough and are they built differently than slicks?
I *really* don't want to purchase a set of rains than may never be used and then just age out.
Lastly - Considering that Toyo's last many heat cycles longer than Hoosiers and don't seem to 'age' while sitting like HoHo's, would their rain tires be a better bet for long term.
