Knowing the Age Is as Easy as 1-2-3!

Are your tires going bald? Are you worried that they might give up on you at any moment?

Before you rush to get them replaced, take a minute to learn about tire age and how to check it. Some tires may not need replacement — they may just need inflating or rotating. But if yours are more than six years old, then it’s time you buy new ones.

The question is, how exactly can you tell the age of your tires? That’s what you’re about to find out here.

Determining the age of your tires isn’t complicated. While it may seem like an extra step, it will give you the guarantee that you’re keeping yourself and other drivers safe on the road. Bear in mind that the older your tires get, the less reliable they become. Driving your car will worn-out tires can increase your risk of getting into an accident.


So, How Old Are Your Car’s Tires?

Would you believe us if we told you that checking the age of your tires is as easy as 1-2-3? All you have to do is look at their sidewalls!

For tires that were manufactured from the year 2000 and beyond, you can determine their age by paying attention to the last four digits found on their sidewalls. Here’s an example: DOT IT4T Y52H 1910.

As you can see, the last four digits are 1910. This means to say that the tire was manufactured during the 19th week of the year 2010.

Tires that were produced before 2000 only have three numbers instead of four. The two digits used to identify the week of manufacture immediately preceded a single digit used to determine the year. Here’s an example: DTK L2G4 SS1 317.

As you can see, the last three digits tell you that the tire was manufactured during the 31st week of the year, and during the 7th year of the decade.

That’s all you need to know about checking the age of your tires! It’s that easy, right?

Having a set of new tires to replace your old ones won’t make your car feel like new if it’s already experiencing all sorts of problems.
