    91H is the Service Description. Your looking at the wrong numbers.
    A service description identifies the tire's load index and speed rating. It can be found on the sidewall of the tire after the size listing.

    The load index is the tire size's assigned numerical value used to compare relative load carrying capabilities. The speed rating is a letter denoting a fixed maximum speed capability.

    OK, yea, but I can't find the magic code on my tires for the life of me. Maybe it's hidden somehow...like a puzzle....

    thanks for the heads up, i'm gonna go check my tires when the sun comes up.

    And after checking my tires they were all made in 06 so I'm good for now.

    but the reporter dude was right, I had to look on the back of the tires to find the build date.

    Try searching the forum for this question, like in the Suspension and AWD or Tires/Wheels section. This is just a sticky thread on tires...

    Check out the comprehensive modification list for our cars. I snagged this list from somewhere online once: http://www.fileden.com/files/2006/11...iorityList.doc

    They say go 17x8, as light as possible... I imagine that's where you'll see the best perfomance for our cars, or at least the best compromise between performance and ride quality.

    anyways the DOT (dept of transportation) numbers are on both sides of the tire but the last 4 digits are only required to be on one side.
    the DOT numbers should be near the bead of the tire..where the tire meets rim.
    so if you scan your tire near the rim you should be able to find something like MC11 2J1B 0209 :: where the 0209 represents the month and year when it was made.

    hope this helps you and feezor inspecting your current tires and purchasing new ones

    Good stuff, thanks! I'm glad I watched that cause I'm getting new tires within a couple weeks here. I'll have to be sure to check the dates.

    How does this have anything to do with a safety bulletin about tires?

    Not to mention, did they even make the WRX in 2001? At least, here in the US...
