HOW OLD ARE MY TIRES

Ever wonder how old your tires are?  Here's some help reading the DOT code which is cast into one of the outer sidewalls.  Find the DOT followed by 4 letters/numbers.  Following this Dot code will be a string of letters/numbers.  You are concerned with the last 4 numbers in this string.  In the following picture, the numbers are 5107.  Interpreted to meaning that this tire was manufactured in the 51st week of the year 2007 (51 & 07).  Hope this helps.

Jim
