To verify if a specific tyre is affected by this program, check the tyre sidewall inscription. Only tyres with their brand name, product line, tyre size and DOT code identified in the exchange programme scope are affected. The attached pictures provide samples of the relevant sidewall inscriptions. The sample is a Continental PremiumContact™ 6 245/45 R18 Y XL tire with DOT code DOT 6G8U D6R9 5016 and DOT 6G8U D6R9 1617.
The last four digits of the DOT serial numbers indicate the production period (week/year). Tyres produced in 5016 (50th week of 2016) and 1617 (16th week of 2017) are covered by this voluntary exchange programme. No other tyre sizes, production periods or product lines are affected.
Important: The complete DOT serial number including production date is visible only on one side of the tyre.
