Re: is this really an original 67 Camaro tire?

Tim this is a thread about the original spare that I know was in my car when it was new. It is a Uni-Royal and the WW is much thinner. As the thread says, there were other brands installed in 67.

I also noticed this guy on eBay has several tires he claims to be original Camaro tires.

Wouldn't the date code of the final three digits 073 indicate it was made the 07th week of 63 or 73?

Decodes as a June of 1966 manufacture date.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

So the last three numeral aren't a date code. Did that just apply to Goodyear, or for a certain period for all tire manufacturers? I'd read before that the last three were m/m/y (last digit), and in 2000 they went to mmyy last two digits. Thanks

Can't say. I just found that chart when scanning through the interweb. Don't remember who or where it was posted. Just thought it was worth saving for later.

This method went into service in the late 70's or 80's.

269 could have been 26th week of 89 or 99.

2609 would have been 26th week of 2009. Post 2000 was 4 digits.
