Age, u/v protection, and proper air pressure are more important than miles Starting my 3rd season and still look new. Will probably replace next year.

X2!

We have over 10,000 miles on the original 15" factory Road Rider tires. They were made in May, 2011. These have been run at 65psi cold, at speeds below 60mph and at ambient air temperatures ranging from 27F to 110F from Missouri to southern Arizona to central British Columbia. They are covered when parked. Tread wear is even all around. The TST tpms system is great for peace of mind and I heartily recommend it!
I experienced one slow rim-leak last fall. When my tire shop examined the tire and rim, the owner told me the tire was in excellent condition and suggested they had another 10K miles or 2-3 years more life in them, whichever came first. The shop reset the bead. The tires are only down 3.5-5psi over the winter.
We will replace them spring 2014 regardless, as we have several trips planned for this year, and I'd rather replace them here at home than at the side of some highway.

You should be getting your 325 right about now?
Ours is being delivered to the dealer today and we just got 4 more inches of snow.

My DW and I went tio visit the Prime Time factory (Wakarusa) last week to see them built - pretty interesting. The product manager gave us a personal tour.
I did ask about tires - seems back around 2007, tire quality was poor, but this has been corrected. The tires on the units being built had some good looking 'E' load rated tires on it - should be OK as long as pressures are maintained.

Here's a couple of pics from last week - thought you might be interested.

Thanks for sharing!

I am hoping to go for a tour when we are in Goshen for the FROG Rally.
