BEEN NOSING AROUND TO FIND THE SPARE TIRE ON MY 2002 T & C BUT TO NO AVAIL. ANYBODY KNOW WHERE IT IS AT?
Should be the same size tire, except that if the road wheels of the van are alloys, the spare will be a steel rim.OK, it's in the rear area under the van. Is the rim & tire the same a the rims & tires on all four other wheels?
OK, where is the date code located on the tire?
When it comes to determining the age of a tire, it is easy to identify when a tire was manufactured by reading its Tire Identification Number (often referred to as the tire's serial number). Unlike vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and the serial numbers used on many other consumer goods (which identify one specific item), Tire Identification Numbers are really batch codes that identify the week and year the tire was produced.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires that Tire Identification Numbers be a combination of the letters DOT, followed by eight to thirteen letters and/or numbers that identify the manufacturing location, tire size and manufacturer's code, along with the week and year the tire was manufactured.

Tires Manufactured Since 2000
Since 2000, the week and year the tire was produced has been provided by the last four digits of the Tire Identification Number with the 2 digits being used to identify the week immediately preceding the 2 digits used to identify the year.
Example of a tire manufactured since 2000 with the current Tire Identification Number format:
What country was the tire made in?Anybody got a take on this 2001 year, 54th week phenomena?
you can easily check by pulling build sheet...Your spare tire wasn't like a regular tire anyway, I'm thinking, if like the one that came with my 2002 DGC
