Looks can be deceiving . Here's some info in this thread that should assist.

Yeah, as Cliff says, looks can be deceiving. Motorhome tires almost never wear out before they time out. Read the date codes and search here on the forum for at what age you want to replace them at... and then make your decision.

Some folks are real sticklers on this and replace them at 5 or 6 years old. Some utilize the advice from Michelin and have them inspected, but use them for up to 10 years. Others just run them until they fail and hope for the best.

Good luck.

Rick

Yes. They were made the 41st week of 2008. You should begin to check them periodically. Michelin says they can go 10 years if you watch them. Others think 6- 7 years are max.

You should check the date on each tire to make sure the dates are close together. One old tire out of the bunch and you can have a problem.
