Default Tires - is this DOT code really 1993

The owner of a coach on CL and I have been emailing back and forth; he finally got me pics of the DOT codes on his coach's tires. See the pic attached.

I didn't know how to interpret a 3 digit date code and had to look it up. Is this really a code from before 2000?

Can the tires on this coach really be from 1993? Is there something I am missing?

The tires look good in the pics too. No dry rot visible.

The current owner said the tires were fine but need replacing sometime in the near future. I guess the lesson here is don't take anyone's word for it, get the codes!

Beware, indeed!

I just hope they aren't 1983 tires! That would make them original equipment!

Thanks for chiming in Randy, I appreciate it!
