Before we start, confess to us something


Do you feel irritated with the screeching sound of the tyre like we do? when you see a random person zooming past, hitting the brakes hard while skidding and drifting around, making disgusting marks on the roads, abusing the round contraption. 

In the times of Creation, Curation, Generation and more, the best sites for motorcycle parts and accessories are working on writing content round the clock. Type 'Motorcycle blogs', 'Online Motorcycle blogs', 'Latest Motorcycle blogs' or even 'Top Motorcycle blogs', you will find almost unlimited matter on bikes.  In this chaotic hustle of bulky matter, few things have been missed.


This is one of them, 'TYRES', our nonchalant victims of public abuse since so many generations. (Tyres Personified!)

Since the days of John Dunlop (he invented the first tyre) to experiments of Charles Goodyear (he created the first vulcanized rubber) from Kirkpatrick Macmillan (he invented the first bicycle) to Gottlieb Daimler (he invented the first motorcycle), tyres have always played important role in history of travel and science. (You see what I did? 4 bits of knowledge in one go!)

Yet in spite of its essence, people do not understand their value! all across the social and other forms of media, tyres have been desensitised into just … bulk materials.


No one is into Tyre Check & Care; no worries, we are here

Motopsychcle.com believes in making motorcycles - simple to understand, we are going to tell you some simple hacks on how to check and take care of  your tyres, to utilise them in best possible way.


Let’s Start;


1. Let us focus on the first factor Tyre Check;

Have you ever noticed the numbers written on the side of tyre, we bet most of you have never noticed them?

Well we are here to tell you, the numbers play a significant role in determining year of manufacture, you need to figure out this date, before you select a tyre, the latter the date, the more problematic the tyre is,

We recommend avoid purchasing a tyre if the manufacturing date exceeds a year, due to the non-use of the tyre the rubber becomes hardened, which leads to poor grip, even in the new tyre.

Let’s see how we check the date of manufacture;

The thing you should notice is the 'born to date' that indicates the tyre's date of manufacture. They are on the sidewall of the tyre, other details mentioned are  size, brand, serial number, pattern, mould number etc. At this moment, we focus on the date of manufacture. (Above mentioned specs will be covered in our future tech series)

The date is divided into 4 digits in accordance to the Metric System in India. The first two indicates the week of the year while last two digits indicates Manufacturing year. For example, you scrutinize your tyre and you see the 4 digits (1018) carved on the side wall.


Weeks in a Year – 52


Weeks in Them


Weeks in them


Weeks in them


























You can take reference from the table that we painstakingly created (Duh!), you can compare the first two digits of the manufacture date.

Since it's the 10th week, you can see that it should fall under March. Hence its 2nd week of March.

Similarly, the last two digits denote the year i.e. 2018.

So, the date of manufacture will be 2nd week of March 2018.

See, we made it simple. Now you can determine the date of manufacture before you buy a tyre,avoid buying a tyre with older manufacturing date, due to the reasons mentioned above...


2. Now we talk about Tyre Care;

Tyre care depends on the Tyre usage of the rider. See, we are not going to preach on releasing tyre pressure, keeping weight off, no skidding, drifting and stunts (That we would enforce for sure) etc.

We humbly just request you to remind yourself once – keep your tyres safe, they will keep you safe.
