  • Tire Date Question

    I just got a 94 Kat 600 a couple of weeks ago and I am going over it to get it road worthy again. My fron tire has a date stamp of "5100" so that one is definitely getting replaced. My question is about the rear tire. The only thing I can find that looks like a date stamp is "018<" What in the world does that mean? I have looked over both sides of the tire many times and that is the only thing that resembles a date stamp.

    What maker is it?

    Could be 2001, week 8.

      I cant answer your question. others might know more about that.

      But what I suggest is that you change both tires at once and go for the same tire type for front and back. you wont regret a new rear tire in any case.

        It's an Avon. I have been looking at their website to see if there is anything there but no luck so far.

          look for the DOT stamp the date of manufacture is the last two digets...
          5100 would be made in 2000 if that is infact the dot stamp your looking at.

            I understand that the front tire was made the 51st week of 2000 which is why I plan on replacing it. My question is about the rear tire with the 018< stamp on it. The tire looks to be in good shape but I am not sure of the age.

              Three digit codes were around before 2000, same code, but the only gave one digit for the year. That front tire is old, but the rear needs to find a museum. First week of 98, or 88...

                So the < in the date stamp probably means nothing? I wasn't sure about that that's why I asked. Thanks for the input guys.
