DOT CODE WAS NOT CLEAR ON THE PAPERWORK

By Michelle from North Vancouver British Columbia Canada - Honda CR-V All-Season

Unable to figure out the DOT code at first because the paperwork from Honda was not clear. I am not a tire expert, so it is hard to figure out how the tire rates, besides my husband drives this car a lot.
