It's the 4 numbers imbedded into the tire after the DOT numbers.

Example #3406 is a tire built the 34th week of 2006.

Thanks,I purchased Avon Venom Rs in June of 06 that are marked (2705) and they appear to be cracking in the grooves. They were mounted on 7/6/06 and have about 9,000 miles. The rear developed a leak in one of the cracks which to me seems premature.
