The last 4 digits in that string of alpha-numeric code will be week/year tire was made.
For example: 2010 would mean tire was made 20th week of 2010.

The MJ93 is not the date code. You may have to look on the back side of the tire. There should be a 4 digit number there (or 3 digit if pre 2000)

That side has a partial code. Look on the other side. The date code will be there.
