The date code on the tires were 06, so based on everything I have read here and elsewhere, I will need to replace next year. I did ask the technician who was doing the walktrhough about the tires and he indicated that I had many miles left on them and not to worry too much about tires for the next couple of years...he indicated that (1) there was still plenty of tread left, (2) there was no visible damage/cracking/sun rot or anything of that nature on the sidewalls and that (3) the nubs along the side were still there...he figured it must have been stored inside. Thoughts from the panel?
Oh, we had a great first trip out...we "camped" two nights at Rustic Creek Ranch in Burleson, TX and really enjoyed ourselves...we are already planning another short trip; that's the great thing about living in South Central Texas, you are two or three hours away from the beach, forrest, mountains, really anything you want and the Texas Parks System is great!
