if you ever wanted to know how old your

tires are . Auto or Trailer.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires the DOT number to be banded on the tire's sidewall. This number begins with the letters "DOT" and is followed by a series of 10-12 characters. The additional characters identify the manufacturing location, the tire size, the manufacturer's code, and the week and year the tire was manufactured. Therefore, it is easy to determine the age of the tire by looking at the DOT code.

Tirerack has a good writeup. I did this after I bought my boat and realized the tires were 8 years old. :shock:

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.
