Should I be worried about how old my new tyres are?

I just purchased four new tyres today. The date on the tyres is 1623. Should I go back and ask for 2024 tyres to be put on?

If the tyre code reads 1623 this means the tyres were manufactured in the week of April 17th 2023, so they were approximately eight months old when fitted to your vehicle. Allowing for some delay from the date of manufacture to the time they are on a shelf at a tyre fitter, we would have no concerns that they will have suffered degradation in that time.
