How to read the Pirelli DOT?
DOT (US Department Of Transportation) is a 7 to 13 character code that is required by law and is usually printed in smaller letters near the tyre bead (where the tyre meets the rim). Its first letters are DOT, which stands for 'Department of Transportation' and indicates that the government agency has approved the tyre. The last four numbers of the DOT code are often the most useful for car owners because they indicate the age of the tyre. The first two digits of the last four numbers indicate the week in which the tyre was produced and the last two the year. For example, a tyre with a DOT code 1119 was produced in the eleventh week of 2019. This information is important because the performance and safety of a tyre decreases with age, even if the tyre is not used, due to chemical breakdown. Other information included in the DOT code is the place of manufacture, the size and type of tyre.
Meaning of M+S on Tyres?
Winter tyres are identified by the M+S marking on the sidewall in association with a symbol of a mountain with a snowflake inside. At the legal level, the M+S marking alone is sufficient to identify a winter tyre, but the tyre industry has adopted the Snowflake marking to differentiate true winter products from the All-season products that only bear the M+S marking.
