Post Bought A 2008 ML350 Brand New Has 2007 Tires...Why is that?

Shouldn't the car also have brand new 2008 tires on it? Any help will be much appreciated.

how can it be brand new if it is a 2008 ML? are you talking about rims and tires?
in any case, 2008 ML should not have an '07 wheelsset.

I bet the seats' leather came from the cows that left the farm in 2006.

Production for 2008 model year began July 1, 2007.

There weren't any 2008-produced tires available until 6+ months later.

If you check, depending on time of year, tires will often be older than the model year. One year ain't bad. I would complain if they were 2006.

Don't be surprised if you order new tires for ML in small city and than find them manufactured in 2006 as well.
Rarely used sizes quite often are sold as new being 3-4 years old. There is no law preventing the seller to install as new tires that spend few years in warehouse. Not much better with new batteries. Learn how to read the codes and observe.

If you purchased brand new means that you should have a copy of the Manufacturing Certificate. Read there the date of manufacture of the vehicle and will show that you got tires contemporary with the fabrication schedule.

In any event you have tires until sometime in 2012/13, unless you rip them off before.

Cheers, JV.

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
