DOT Codes

Hi,


anyone know how to decipher DOT codes? I know how to identify the tyre manufacture date but how do I know if a tyre is road legal. My tyre is has an 'E' mark but does DOT relate directly to the American Department of Transport? Do race tyres even have a DOT code on the side wall?

Thanks

Tony
