Fear not gentle readers. I finished my purchase of three other Carlisle trailer tires from Discount Tires. All have date codes within the past 7 months.

For those who dont know what to look for, you should be able to find a DOT code on the side wall of the tire (normally located near the rim itself). The DOT numbers should contain at least sections with numbers and letters in them. On one side of the tire (sometimes both) there should be a 3rd section after the DOT, this would be the date code.

Example......DOT 4RX2 93R1 2512. This code would tell you that the tire was built in the 25th week of 2012, by looking at the last 4 didgets. Hope that helps.

When ever I mount tires, I always mount the date code outwards, that way it makes it easy for someone to easlily identify the age of a tire.
