Lost the tread. No air loss.

A picture is worth a lot of words. So.. here's a link to a picture.
Here are my Michelin U-V cracks. Safe or not? Click here to see
what some say is safe and others say replace. Plenty of thread, (10,000 mi).

I would personally change them just to get away from Michelin...

My RV came with 1999 Goodyears on all positions but one, an outside dual. that one was a 2005 Michelin, and it has more cracks in it than yours.. NONE of the Goodyears do..

Not saying I like Goodyears either, just do NOT like Michelins..

Unsightly for sure, but according to the Michelin site (info posted recently by historyjlc, post #65) replacement is needed at 1/16th of depth. I have the XRVs on mine, no cracks, but I'm thinking I would check the Michelin site, and most likely replace yours if they were under my chassis. My thoughts....

Many thanks for the opinions. I have learned a lot about tires in this exercise. One is that my Winnie has tires made by two suppliers. Goodyear and Michelin. I tried to find them in Toyo, but no luck.

those tires look like they havent had any protection applied to them. I would put some 303 and keep an eye on the progress
