Non DOT Tire Date

I picked up a 94 XR250R today and the guy said he had owned the bike for 10 years and never replaced the tires and he didnt think the original owner had replaced them either.

I looked them over that there is no checking or cracking on them and the date looks like 163. he said both the original owner and he kept his bikes in a garage.

is this possible? i looked it up on line and prior to 2000 tires just used a 3 digit dating sysem.

If you're just riding on dirt or back roads, may be no problem. Just ride it. If in traffic, might be more prudent to get new ones and new tubes too.

I am going to get some new ones but if these IRC hold up that well I may get another set.

The 163 should mean that the tire was produced in the 16th week of...83...93...that's why it's pretty tough to get an accurate idea. If it's not coming apart I'd ride on it off road.

Thanks GBAUTO, it would have to be 93 and the bike is a 1994 that was sold in June of 1993.

the rear the tread in the center is all but gone so I will replace it and probably just replace both of them and tubes.

the bike is titled as off road so no street ridding but maybe in the future I might tag it as I do have the title, just depends on how much i like the XR250R
