Don't worry, Be happy!

Well, my opinion is they were / are very good tires, and the sidewall cosmetic cracking was due to use of silicon or petroleum based tire treatments, combined with excessive sun exposure. I was the second owner. Only a water based protectant such as Aerospace 303 should be used, or nothing at all - just soap and water to clean.

My coach is covered, the previous owner also had it in the sun uncovered. BTW, the interior rear tires looked like new, no cracking, they of course had no 'protectants' applied, and no sun exposure . All had the same manufacture date. I kept an interior tire as a spare. This, to me, proves the cracking on the exterior tires was due to a combination of improper tire protectants and sun exposure.
