Dude, where do I find this information? I looked all over both sidewalls and inside the rim. Whle there were multiple locations that listed different numbers, none resembled a date or year.
Four digit code at the end of the molded in manufacture number. xxyy (where xx is week and yy is last two digits of year).

^^ he speaks truth. Tires tend to dry out as they age. The oils dry and the tires start to suffer "tire rot" and will crack and seperate.

There are production dates on all tires. They may not be clear as day...but they should all have the month/year of production somewhere on them - look really good or Google the tire brand and date so you can find it easier.

It's important to check it as you don't wanna have an issue with the spare at the moment you need it.

Agreed. But just as long as the tire was stored in a dry and stable temperature, you shouldn't have any issues. Tires can be stored for about 6-7 years depending on the brand.
