Re: Tread Separation Today
here is an example of a DOT code, which now is called a tin (tire Identification number) w2hr 38a 1907
w2hr= plant where tire made
38a= what kind of tire
1907= 19th week of 2007
anything over 5 years is risky, no matter how good the tread looks. Most tires have a 6 year warranty from date they were made or 5 years from date of purchase...now if you see something like w2hr 38a 197 * that make after the seven should be a triangle and it is a decade marker...meaning 19th week of 1997.
