DOT tire numbers

I know there are DOT numbers on each tire with four digits indicating the week and year of the tire's manfacture. I have two Michelin XRV tires with the DOT imprint, but no numbers. There is DOT followed by two groups of four letters, but no numbers. Are the letters coded dates, or do I need to look elsewhere for the date imprint? The repair shop said they are 1204, but I don't see that.

The date code will only be on one sidewall of the tire. On my XZA2 Michelin the date code line is an inch & a half or so above the edge of the wheel. There will be a couple of groups of alphanumeric and the the 4 digit date code. It will be in an elongated oval.

Look on the inside, if they are on rear and on inside between tires you probably will need mirror and light to see. You would think it should be stamped on both sides of the tires
