If no one beats me to it, I'm considering buying the 30 x 3-1/2 white Universal that's on the Forum's classifieds.

The seller has looked the tire over carefully and has found these numbers:

01301

UTC is next to Universal

Is anyone able to tell me when this tire may have been manufactured, and if it's outside the time frame of those that have yellowed?

This older thread on Universals shows that they use day-month-year in 6 digits.

DOT uses the last 4 digits, for number of the week of the year, and year. i.e. 1020 (10th week of 2000) These codes began in 2000.

So, you think this tire was made in late March / early April of 2001?
