Default Tire "birthdate" just like beer! Safety!

Do you check the date your tires were made when you found a "great deal"?
I didn't know you could...(I'm usually the last to know). I don't know what it's like to have a blowout at 70 mph on a "big" tire, but it can't be as fun as a smaller tire to control. This tire was made in the 50th week in 2009. I guess all tires have this code on one side or the other....week 1-52 and year. (makes sense in case of recall...ford explorer, "surepops" era)

A three digit number means you're back in the 90's. (my boat trailer)

ABCnews and CBSnews both have videos on the subject.

They say 6 years max...I don't know, but check that old SPARE!!

That's a good thing to know, thanks for posting this. I'm curious now so I am going out to check mine and see when they were made.

We learned how to read tires in the Motorcycle Safety class. Good info to know!

I saw that report on TV when they aired it. It was very interesting.

I did not know this. Although most of my vehicles never pass 36 Months old in my possession... but my wife.. she doesn't drive much and she can hold on to her car for years. So this something I should check and be aware of.

Thanks for the post!!

Tim
