Tyre Age Identification

Since the year 2000 tyre age has been easy to read as it is given in a 4-figure digit – the first two numbers are the week of manufacture and the second are the year. The example above shows a tyre made in week 08 of 2007.

Older tyres are dated slightly differently and feature a three digit code where the first two digits denote the production week and the third denotes the year. An additional triangular indentation after the year clarifies that it is a tyre made in the 1990s, no triangle mark is a tyre from the 1980s or earlier.
