Pilot 1/2/3?

How can one tell by looking at the of a sidewall of a Michelin Pilot if a tire is a Pilot 1-2or3? Both tires on my recently acquired 2003 GT show Pilot Road and were manufactured in 2008.

Thanks all for your responses,
Ptrick

Well they wouldn't be 3's, those came out last year. If they are 2s it says on them. 1s only say Pilot Road.

You need to get out and wear those things out so you can get new rubber!

Agreed...the bike is new to me and both tires were manufactured in 2008. I do not know how many miles are on them , but they are squared off. Lots of thread left but the profile is gone. Got an appointment for fresh Pilot Road 3s May.
