I did that a few years ago with our Dutch Star. Drove the local Les Schwab tire store that had a truck center. Had them look at the tires that were showing a few cracks. Tech looked at them and said, "Yep, they're cracked alright" and that was it. Wouldn't/couldn't tell me if they were safe to drive on for a while longer!

Tires rot from the inside out due to lack of use. That's why they suggest to drive the RV at least every month to get the important chemicals migrating throughout the rubber.

The only true way to inspect a tire is to dismount it and look at the inside. The outside only gives you half the story.
