Hi ,

I've attached a couple of pic's of some 600-16 Avon traction mileage tyres .

Is the E28692 the date of manufacture ? 

All 4 have different nos. after the E

Just out of interest really , they must be old as they are the original not the current re-pro's

cheers

I suspect not, probably manufactured before it was a requirement. It’s usually two digits for the week and two for the year.

I’m not certain, but I also think it’s only a requirement for tyres manufactured in EU to have date stamp, not for ones manufactured outside and sold into EU, so you’ll find new US and Far East tyres without any date stamp.

thanks Steve , I've heard lots of talk of tyre manufacture date and was curious . I'm not sure when this pattern was dropped but must have been at least 30 years ago.

Before the current week/year code (which not all tyres carry) there was a code with a sideways triangle next to it, but I dont know how far that went back.

I'm sure tinternet can supply the info ?

Nope, still made albeit in limited form!

Though why anybody would want to pay nearly £200 for a 6.00x16 crossply that was awful 30 years ago is one to ponder....

I guess charge what the market will stand, somebody doing a concours job on a Series 1 is probably happy to pay whatever to get the right tyres on it. Coming soon, 9.00-16 bar grips for extra fun on a wet roundabout!

The date comes after the DOT code, which is actually a requirement for the North American market. It appears on the sidewall of one side of the tyre, jsut above the wheel rim line.

Looks like this. As ou can see, the tyre was manufactured in the 12th week of 2020.
