Is it safe to race on 2.5-year-old tires?

I’m guessing the answer is probably no, but curious to hear what y’all think.

I still have a set of nearly-new Pilot Supersports from my old WRX (mounted to the gold wheels I haven’t bothered to sell yet) which happen to be the same size as the front tires on my Corvette. They’ve only seen 800 miles and one autocross before I sold the Subi.

They’ve been stored in an unheated shed since November 2015. So they’ve stayed dry, but have now weathered three cold Connecticut winters.

So, what’s the verdict? Yay, or Nay?

Help me, Oppo, you’re my only hope!
