Newbie tire question

HI all,
We just bought a 2016 Melbourne 24k. 12,000 miles on it.

I read on this site that tire age is more important than miles.
Also read to look for an oval on the inside of the tire for a 4 digit number.

Got down there today, saw nothing that would make me believe it was date related.
Continental Vanco Four Season
LT 215/85R 16
115/112 Q

Any thoughts would be helpful,
Thanks,
David

The number in the oval is the DOT code. First two digits are the week of manufacture. The second two are the year.

So a DOT code of 1520 is the 15th week of the year of 2020.

Look for the letters “DOT”. To the right should be numbers. There may be some numbers and a space then the date code.

Wow!!!!!!!

I found it.

2115

So the 21st week of 2015....right?

Guess we need to strongly consider new tires.

Thanks,
David

Six years old. Have them inspected by a pro or have them replaced.

Thanks to all for the information.

We are saving for new tires before our next out of town venture.

Appreciate all input.

David, you should also consider a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System). I wouldn't travel without one.
