Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Approximate age of GoodYear All Weather tires?

Picked these up at an estate sale and I like the tread design for my War Wagon. 450x21", so I presume more of an A tire than a T. But I have a set of 21" demountables, so I'm cleaning them up and want to use them.
Not a crack on them. Long nubs still on sidewall and some small nubs still on the tread. No DOT numbers, so before that requirement. Made in Brazil. GoodYear All Weather.

40's? 50's? 60's? 70's?

Thanks in advance.

Someone is still making the Good Year, as Snyder's still has them in their catalog. I bought a set of four and have two old stock originals, but I don't know when they were made.

My understanding that the DOT numbers are required after 2000, so we know it's before that if they don't have the numbers.

I'm a little relieved that these tires may not be as old as I first thought. That initial filling of air in the rims sounded like the Titantic breaking up. I clamped on the air hose and stood a few feet away while doing so.
Do it in the hot sun and the tires were just stretching their legs. New tubes and flaps. All is good this morning.
