You can check for yourself (just to keep them homest).

The tire date code is the last four number of the DOT code. Look for the "DOT" on the tire (can be on either side) and you should find the last four numbers in an oval (code changes each week so they use a template). The first two number is the week of the year, the second is the year.

For example, today's date code is 3517. This is the 35th week of 2017.

thanks enigma-2.  I'm unfortunately too familiar with tire date codes........... that would be an entirely different post......  

 

Of course I'd prefer to know there's no date code issue "presale" and I'm a guessing that info isn't going to be readily available in a TIrerack online purchase or or even if I call them to place an order

About 28K miles on the tires now.  Fronts are less then 5/32nds outside grove and more than 4/32nds inside groves center.   The rears are at 7/32nds. Tires have never been rotated.   I should make it to the November time frame and then ditch the fronts and install my snow tires then in the spring buy two new tires and put the older set in the front to wear them out next year.
