Tyres & Brake FAQ in Adelaide


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I tell the age of a tyre?
All tyres are produced with a serial tyre identification number that shows the manufacture date of a tyre. The last three digits (for tyres made before 2000) or four digits (for post-2000 tyres) of the serial number indicate the week and year that the tyre was made. Also, a tyre made in the 1990s can be distinguished from a tyre made in the 1980s due to a triangular indentation after the last number.
