How to Read the Date of Manufacture Tire Codes

You can use the tire identification number to find out how old your tire is. To determine when a tire was produced, you can look at the tire identification number, which is a code that also displays where the tire was manufactured and its size.

The format of the tire identification number changed in the year 2000. If the last four symbols of the tire identification number are digits, the tire was produced in or after the year 2000. If only the last three symbols of the tire identification number are digits, the tire was produced before the year 2000.
