On top of the old model tires, I lost out on the $50 rebate from Dunlop ☹️

I would call and return them. If you bought Elite 4, you need to get Elite 4. The other option might be to have them refund part of your money. Be sure to check the manufacturing date on the tires as well. I would never start out on a tire older than 12-15 months old.

and the retail price of a Elite 4 is much more than an Elite 3....

Just curious- when ording online, have you found a way to make sure you receive tires less than 12 months old? I agree, good idea, When I ordered this winter and received one that was 18 months, I was not thrilled, but did not return it. Seemed like a hassle either way. Just wondering if there is a way to predict what you receive or special instructions when ordering.

I would go back and get the 4s, if that’s what order. Also maybe contact Dunlop online- they replied to my web inquiry this winter within 2 days and were very helpful- Your order was placed during the promo period, they may try to make it right.
