Tire experts

I know it's time but but I'd rather buy new tires in the spring since it will be just sitting for the winter. This is a rear dual and the only one that has seemed to have cracked. They are Goodyear G670 295/80r 22.5 dated 02/06. Goodyears and mich xza2 are within $50.00 a tire apart. Quoted full set out the door a little less than $5,000. So my question is how bad does look.Click image for larger version

For me, it depends on how deep they go. If they are just surface cracks and I was not going to travel too far this winter, I'd wait. If they go deep, they are done, IMHO.

Michelin says that cracks less than 1/32" are no cause for concern. Up to 1/16" is cause for an internal inspection, but anything over that is replacement time.

Dot in N.Y. Says any crack that shows cord is illegal. Those cracks are good to go but should be watched.

Hi Tha_Rooster,
Consider checking out the FMCA Michelin Advantage tire program. The FMCA program has your tire for $638.53 (tire price). Go to Michelin Sidewall Cracking Chart - iRV2.com RV Photo Gallery and take a look/download the Michelin tire cracking chart.
