How old - I mean the tires, not the MH, its stamped on the tires. Maybe dry rot.

The last four digits are the Date Code portion. 0513 means they were manufactured in the fifth week of 2013. So call it late January or early February 2013. I'd have my local Michelin dealer take a look at them.

They match the build time of the recalled Michelins but not the sizes listed on the recall notice we got. Who knows but fingers crossed there will be the same great news for you that we got. We still can't get over the incredible luck of 5 brand new free tires. Luke a (small) lottery win.

similar to Oldsmasma. Tires were starting to show cracks. 5yrs old. ( MH tires should be changed at least every 5 years). When I was checking around for new tires, I found my Michelins were recalled. Got 6 new tires free. even after 35,000 miles..

Are you sure that 70psi is the proper pressure for the front tires ???

If the OP is running between 4380lbs and 4880lbs weight on his front axle then 70psi is the correct pressure for the Michelin tires he has. If he is running higher than 4880 up to the max axle weight of 5000lbs (I assume since he has a E450 that 5000lbs is his max front axle weight) then 75psi is the max pressure he should have for his tires.
