The date on the tires is 3/13, on our 01 HR Imperial. With only about 20,000 miles on them, how long before I need to replace them?

Lots of opinions and posts on this subject with a lot of variables. Looks like you’ve put all the miles on them and have kept them aired properly. If you use the rig often...does not sit for long periods I would go another couple years on your Kelly tires. This is longer than the 5-7 years that is most often thrown out on this subject.

I went 10 years on the tires on the back of my Dynasty (put all the miles on them) but I recently replaced 4 year old cracking Michelin’s on the front of my “new” rig as I did not know their history. Other than the possible body damage, a blowout on the rear is not exciting like one on the front. I would not go 10 years on front tires...especially on tires that have to be aired close to their max pressure to carry the load.

This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.

With proper care 7 years is ok I have Michelins born in 2013 and will replace with Toyo's next year. My Michelins have started to show small surface cracks.

It depends on how much heat you are stored in, and whether your tires get direct sunlight. i.e. Here in Arizona, they can be cross checked after 3 years. My advice, keep a close eye on them for cross checking and replace soon after it starts. I put new Michelins on mine 18 months ago, and the dealer said Michelin would pro-rate the remaining tread life toward new tires if they start cross checking.
