After 6 years it's time for new tires regardless of sidewall cracks. Lol.

I have several trucks and my advice is to buy well constructed tires. I am less concerned with drives but steers tend to be close to there max for load. I have been finding our Mitsubishi trucks that come oem with yokohamas have been experiencing blowouts on the steers at about 6 years. Just had another yesterday. I usually run Michelin or toyo but this go around went with bfgoodrich at about the same cost as Michelin just to try another manufacture since micheline runs out of tire so frequently. Every time a driver has a steer blowout we have truck damage and comments about near accidents .I am running all steel construction tires and they cost more.

Luckily CC finally took care of that with the later rigs! Our front axle is a 20,000# unit and the 365/70 tires will take 21,000#'s in single apps. Our loaded weight is 18,030 so no worries for us.
