Never had a flat but it does show that looks can be deceiving. About 47,000 miles on the old tires.
There have been some tire shops that have been found to have sold tires that were out of date,,, or at least older than they should be !!!

My tire expert said 10 years on Michelin tires. You really need to check the sidewalls for cracks, if you see any, replace the tires. I'm going on 9 years now. My rig is not parked in the sun very much so not much damage gets done. Take your rig to a tire expert and have them look at your tires if you're concerned. Better safe than sorry.

I talked to a Michelin rep. at the FMCA rally a couple weeks ago. I asked him when I should replace the tires on my coach. We bought our 2012 Georgetown in the spring of 2011 and the tires were made in week 48/2010. He told me I should have my tires checked by a Michelin shop that sells truck tires. As long as they are OK I can keep doing that until they are ten years old. But I need to replace them then.
