Carlton62Have had tires for 2 yrs (put on 98 Camry aa part of Certified Used Vehicle)and another dealer says they have now dry rot. Causes steering wheel to oscillate at low speeds.
How can I find out the age of these tires;
Triumph II CCVW (VDW 119)
Triumph II CCVF (VDW 049,029,129)?
CapriRacerAre you sure about VW as the second 2 letters on that one tire?

My book says the other 3 tires (the ones with VF) are P215/65R15's. It doesn't make sense to have 2 different sizes, especially 3 of one and 1 of another.

But to answer the question you asked. These tires were probably produced in 1999. If there is a little triangle next to these numbers then it is, otherwise it might be 1989 (which would explain the dry rot).

Hope this helps.

My mistake on 1st tire.It was CCVF and not CCVW. All have a little triangle next to the three digit number, meaning made in 1999.
Thanks a lot for your quick response.
