Date Code Info and Pics

A couple of weeks ago I posted some tire date code numbers and nobody here seemed to be able to make heads or tails of them. I determined, to the best of my ability, that the Dunlop K177 rear tire on my '98SE is original and that the tire was mfgd in the 32nd week of 1997. Here are the photos showing the date stamp, and tire in general (with 9200 miles on it). No sidewall cracking and the tread doesn't look terrible for the age and miles. There is some cupping and the rubber is MUCH harder than the new tire that will replace it. I'll feel lots safer with the new tire installed.
