To determine the age of a tire there is a stamped four digit or three digit code (if it was made before 2000). '1406' would mean the tire was manufactured the 14th week of 2006. '265' would correspond to the 26th week of 1995, or 1985 but if it was that old you'd be able to tell. This is only stamped on one side. This is a useful bit of information everyone should know (especially if you like to buy used tires).
