If a retailer is trying to sell 2 year old tires as 'new' I would be suspicious. You should at least get them at a discount ie older tire = less value.
Roughly speaking tires should be discarded at 6 years even if they still have tread. So if you were considering 2 year old tires that have never been used and were stored properly, they should cost 2/3 (4/6) of new price.
When you buy a used vehicle you should also be aware of tire age. The vehicle itself may be a year older that it's model year (check for date of manufacture) and the tires would be older than that. Example you could buy a used 2017 that has the original tires, dating from 2016 or 15. Again, be aware of the actual value and don't overpay.
