With the production dates on some 1999 models going all the way back to 09/99 and with their spare tires sometimes going back all the way to early 1999, making them now 11 years old, I'm wondering when you should replace a spare tire? Basically, how old does a spare tire have to be to be unsafe to drive on?

My guess is it would be fine since the tire isn't subjected to the same weathering as a tire that is outside of the car. It's pretty protected from the heat, cold and UV rays.
