Cooper Evolution Tour tires, purchased new 8/20, about 5,500 miles on the rubber. I noticed these white dots in the tread. Any idea what they are, what they represent?
I doubt that as the wear bars seem to go right across some of the dots.That's wild. Just a guess...Maybe where the computer wanted the tread bufffed down, to buff off the high spots?
Do all four tires have these dots? Maybe CapriRacer knows.
Thanks ... I don't, wrong sizes and dates.See if you qualify for the Recall >>>>>>> https://www.consumerreports.org/car...lls-tires-due-to-risk-of-sidewall-separation/
This ☝its production markings. The paint that went into the grooves will take longer to wear off....That is just the markings that the factory puts on the "green" / uncured tread. The color combinations help to keep track of the identification or tread width. There is usually a tread code, date and there info printed on the tread. Most of it is on top of the tread, so it wears off quickly. The stripes in the grooves actually can help the final inspection workers tell if the tread was built onto the tire straight and centered.
