Tyres "Date of Manufacture"
« on: January 29, 2020, 06:29:03 PM »
This might be old knowledge for many, but I've just found out that there is a code on motorcycle tyres which indicates the week and year of manufacture.   Have a look at the image of the sidewall marking on my rear Pirelli Angel.   The oval with the numbers 0819 indicate that the tyre was manufactured in the 8th week of 2019.

Ummm..not quite correct...the first 2 digits refer to the week of manufacture not month..so 0819 is the 8th week of 2019 so just a little older..
One day you will wake up and there won't be anymore time to do the things you've always wanted so do them NOW!!!
Remember there are 7 days in a week and Someday isn't one of them!

Thanks for the correction.  I knew that, but in my haste to share new knowledge mucked up my post.    :-[

All motor vehicle tyres have the same date code provided they are post 2000, pre 2k is a different code

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
