I'd replace them, chances are the tires are a few years old even though your trailer is a 2013. My neighbor just had a blow out on his KZ 5er, it is a 2012 but, the tires were from 2010. The factories have stock piles of tires and unforunately, that coupled with the fact that the tires aren't the highest quality to begin with make them go quicker than you'd expect.

I had similar cracks on mine, replaced them last year. You should see what they looked like once dismounted from the wheel and no air in them, when I saw mine after they took them off, I was wondering how I made it the 3 miles to the tire place to get them mounted.

Good luck, tire shopping is interesting to say the least especially if you ask what brand is the best on here (don't do it!...lol).

It seems though alot of people have good luck with the Goodyear Marathon's though. But, shop around, research online, and ask local tire dealers for their recommendations if you have a place you can absolutely trust and not just one trying to make a sale.

Use the link posted by mark0224 to find out how old the tires are.

Thank you. Lots of debates about LT versus ST as well :-)

If you take the tires to a tire shop that deals in that brand they may prorate them by measuring the tread and give you a percent off new ones. Don't know how it works through FR dealer. I had a boat trailer that had BF Goodrich tires on it and the tire dealer did do this for me.

I wonder if I will be able to find a dealer that sells WestLake tires.

Looks like they are not too old...

I make them to be just over two years old which is not bad but the tire is just not going to last long.

I am going to guess you will need to wait till Monday to check with the tire dealers?

Any sign of problems with the other four?

Yep, don't run straight out and replace them, get with FR and see. Tires typically don't crack along the tread like that, usually they show hairline cracks along the sidewall near the tread.

I wouldn't panic towing it where it needs to go, but wouldn't take off on a trip.
