When did you replace your Georgetown tires?

Just wondering if GT owners are replacing their tires based on age of the tires or the mileage.

If replacing due to mileage.........what mileage did you get?

Maybe it's time to ask Santa

Thanks

Earlier this year I bought a 2008 Georgetown with original tires. Replaced before first trip. Seven years is my max for tire age regardless of mileage or condition.

Just bought 2011 GT 360xl 78000km (49000m) . Rear michelin xrv are 40% worn out, front are 60% worn and not evenly wornout. I will replace the front one. I am going south from Toronto. I might drive in slippery condition. That is why I change the front.

Age is the most important as we rarely wear tires out first. Obviously if tread is gone then replace, but 7 years is the most I would go regardless of wear. After all, there's a lot riding on them.

Yes, age is the thing and between 6 and 7 years is ideal. Anything over that and you are riding on a potential bomb that will tear your rig apart.

May want to consider changing at 5 years on original tires. They are typically low budget.
