    Throwing this out there.

    The Notice "ALERT" I have seen, states "Goodyear Wrangler MT/R" tires. You said "MT" .....Just throwing that out there to be precise..

    Is there a difference in the "MT/R" as described in the alert notice, and the "MT" only tires?? My tires have only "MT" on them, not "MT/R"

    Yes they are two totally different tires. There is no safety notice on the Goodyear MT or the BFG Baja tires. The safety notice is only on the D and E load range MT/R. The tire says the type on the sidewall. 95 percent of surplus HMMWVs have the regular plain MT tire on them.

    How do you read the date on a tire?

    Dot code will have several sets of numbers. The last 4 digits is what you look at the first 2 of that sequence is the week of the year and the last 2 are the year. 2315 would be the 23rd week of 2015

    And if the last set of numbers only has three numbers, it is probably time for a new set of tires regardless of The brand or model. They switched to the 4 digit date code in 2000.

    I picked up a couple of M1102s this week and the tire warning notice was attached to one of them. The struggle is real!

    The date code for the tires on one of the trailers is blank, so my guess is that they are from the future.

    Carry on.

    Look on the other side of the tire.
