depends on the shop, tire size ect
i wouldnt buy a 3 year old tire. 5-7 years is standard life of a tire iirc
of course thats if you dont wear them out first
check the manufacturer, most say 5-7 years or the tread wear lifeNow the other question is, how many years of use is the maximum for a tire considering a standard use of 10.000 miles/year?
(I am asking for a 225/65/R17, or 225/60/R17 stock on a Compass)

people that ride motorcycles are very concerned with tire age.
dryrot is not always noticed.
i usually hit tread wear way before age (30k miles a year)
so if you buy a 3 year old tire rated at 60k and drive 10k a year
it may start dry rotting before the tread wears out
if you have ever owned a trailer, you really see tires rotting before the tread is gone
its best to buy as new a tire as possible.
there is a datecode on the sidewall
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.
