Tyre Manufacture Date

Hi Guys,
I am after information on tyre manufacture dates moulded into Pirelli "P Zero" tyre walls. Please correct me if I am wrong but this date should be part of the DOT string of letters and numbers? Generally it is the fourth set of number ie: 2316. 23 week of the year 2016?
The reason for asking is that I think a friend of mine has been duped. The tyres on her vehicle look old as they seem to be suffering from perishing. I would like confirmation regarding the dating.

    I think that's correct Ray. There's plenty of information online if you care to check, but here's confirmation from the Kwik Fit site:

    Hope your friend manages to get some recompense.

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the confirmation. I don't know whether she will get any recompence from the company as they sounded a little iffy to me. She runs one of those performance Audi Q3 RS jobs and I think the previouse owner shredded the boots and the garage had a part worn set which they used for the sale. Trouble is they are dangerouse and the vehicle would NOT pass an MOT. Pleanty of treat depth but the sidewalls are shot in placs.
    I feel for her as she traded a lovely Merc for this. The car is good but you dont want an extra cost of purchasing tyres when you have had the vehicle a month.

    Ray,
     
    Your friend may have a chance if she'd noticed that the tyres needed replacing and the seller agreed to do it as part of the sale and, as you say, fitted an old part-worn set. She might have a better case complaining that they've sold a car with illegal tyres and threaten to take them to Trading Standards - worth a punt.!

    The time has come to replace the front tyres on my 2012 Cayman S but would appreciate advice .The car currently has Michelins all round so would be keen to stick with this make. Pirelli cost about the same and I'm aware of the £50 fuel offer but I want to find a decent supply and fitting centre as I'm concerned that there are places that simply rip the old ones off and fit the new tyres with disregard to causing damage to the rims. Can anyone recommend a caring tyre fitter please? I live in the Yeovil/Sherborne area and am a member of the Dorset region (R26).
    Regards,

    Hi Gary
    Welcome to the forum.  However, may I suggest you start a thread in the R26 or Cayman section and not post here as this thread is about a different topic.  Thanks

    Many thanks for your advice. I have now posted a similar question in the R26 section which I hope will be more appropriate
