I see. They think that I cannot tell the 12/16/14 is a date without the calendar icon. Presumably there is nothing that one can do with a calendar, other than see the date.

I already have the 275 width tires on wider rims in the back, 275/35-19, so going to 275/40-19 should change the width thing too much. I really appreciate knowing that these slightly bigger tires...
