The four digit tire date coding started in 2000. Prior to that there was a code however it was a 3 digit code.

Are you saying these tires are older than 2000? they were purchased about 4 years ago by the PO. Walmart brand tire I believe.

"Tires Manufactured Since 2000
Since 2000, the week and year the tire was produced has been provided by the last four digits of the Tire Identification Number with the 2 digits being used to identify the week immediately preceding the 2 digits used to identify the year."

Hi

If you take a look at the link listed above, it mentions that they only need to put the full number on *one* sidewall. They can put an abbreviated number on the other sidewall. Sounds like the tires got mounted "wrong side out".

Agree. The date code might only show on the inside.

I am not saying anything about your tires.
I am stating the tire date coding rules.

You have not posted a 4 numeric coding.
The tire will have it as it is a requirement

As it turns out there was a 4 digit code, but only on the inside of the tire.

Question

If everyone would simply go back to the source document in the Tire Rack link in Post #4, it might be easier and require less guessing, speculation, and confusion?

"While the entire Tire Identification Number is required to be branded onto one sidewall of every tire, current regulations also require that DOT and the first digits of the Tire Identification Number must also be branded onto the opposite sidewall. Therefore, it is possible to see a Tire Identification Number that appears incomplete and requires looking at the tire's other sidewall to find the entire Tire Identification Number."



. . . but maybe I have misunderstood the purpose here?
