What year are they??? I was offered two rears new for £70 each but despite being premium brands they were already 9 years old.

I run 295/35 ZR20 on the rear of my QP, they ride better and look better.

Hi Peter

Going off this text from the website Im reading this as being if stored for over 2 years still Brand New but marked as DOT, Im calling them to see if this is made clear on the website i.e. do they mark DOT types at purchase or is it on the label when they turn up

We exclusively offer new tyres fresh off the production line. Stocked goods older than 2 years are categorised as "DOT" goods and marked with the year of production. By referring to the DOT number at the tyre wall you can identify the calendar week as well as the year of production. Please note that correct storage can enhance the specific properties of the material, as non-immediate exposure to street traffic will allow the rubber mixture to harden over time. According to guidelines by the BRV (German national association for the tyre and vulcaniser trade) tyres are rated as ‘brand-new’ if stored correctly for up to 3 years and as ‘new’ if stored for up to 5 years.

From the phone call its not clear as the call centre chap wasn't that clued up, basically they don't sell tyres over 3 years old was the gist of the call :)
