Can anyone ID these gaskets?

The tag has a barely legible "58036664" and something after that. Doing the Google turns up nothing.

How do you figure? He made the best tire choice, which helped him maintain for the entire race. MM was struggling towards the end due to tire choice, and that cost him big.
