Default Re: How to tell the Manufacturing Date of a Tyre

This info is clearly visible on the sidewall of the tyre which faces outwards.
Then there has to be some other code used in the Assurance series by Goodyear. The SA who accompanied me was not even aware that tyre dates can be checked. I showed him the Apollo's fit on nearby grand i10 and helped his knowledge a bit, but as with the Goodyear Assurance, I hit a dead end.

I remember opening the boot and checking the spare and I now clearly recollect that the spare was fit upside down i.e. the inner walls were visible, but even on the inner walls, I failed to find the required information.

There has to be some code there, as I think it is mandatory to mention it on the tyres. Just cannot figure it out right now.

Fortunately my colleague bought his 2015 Elite i20 Asta to work today where I could check if there was any manufacturing date stamped on the tyre. It was there indeed.
