I know in the old forum I'd asked Bubba (I believe) about what the manufacture date was on the tires he purchased.....I couldn't remember what the date code looked like then...found it now so thought I'd post if for info for others...

As of 2000, the date coding system has changed a bit. All tires are still required to be stamped with a DOT number on at least one sidewall, but now there's more data. Look for a code that starts with 'DOT' and has up to 12 letters and numbers. The last four numbers are the date code in the format: 'WWYY', where the WW two digits denote the week of manufacture, and the YY denotes the last two digits of the year. So a date code of 'DOT913ACX3C2200' would have been manufactured in the 22nd week of '00.
