How do I find out when a car tyre was made?

How do I identify the date on a tyre?

Answered by Georgia Petrie
The four-digit tyre age code is usually located on the tyre's sidewall. The first two digits of the code represent the week of production during the year (from 1 to 52) while the second two digits represent the year of manufacture, i.e. 4215 would be the 42nd week in 2015. A Google image search will show you what you're looking for.
