 Someone will correct me if I am wrong (please do)

 but I am under the opinion that bias ply tires that are only 25 years old or so are safe tires as long as they pass a good visual inspection.

 The 6 year tire replacement "rule" is for radials that are fairly modern that are being made with different rubber compounds that do not hold onto the steel belts very well.

 (Please feel free to contradict with real facts.)

 

 Please note that the DOT has not set any year length on tires.

 (to my knowledge)
