To know the age of your tires, you can look at the date code on their sidewall. The date code is found in a marking that follows one of the following formats:

DOT XXXX XXX XXXX
first two characters: manufacturing plant identification mark
last four digits: date code (week / year)
The other characters are left at the manufacturer's discretion.

Example: DOT U2VK 3ML 2602: In this case, the tire has been manufactured on the 26th week of 2002 -- in other words, in June 2002.

DOT XXXX XXXX XXX (older three-digit date code format)
first two characters: manufacturing plant identification mark
last three digits: date code (two for the week / one for the year)
The other characters are left at the manufacturer's discretion.

Example: DOT P1RW B4LR 109: This particular tire was made on the 10th week of 1999.

Cooper MIGHT be able to tell you load ratings, speed limitations, rim size, and max pressures for the tires.
