a couple of factors no one has mentioned when a tire trailer, truck or farm implement sits on dirt for long period of times the soil sucks the moisture out of it thus drying it out cause you can get dry rot from sitting indoors also on dirt floor. As for changing tires every 3 to 7 years keep an eye on them why spend money on something if you dont need to I know of a lot of farm tractors from the 60's and 70's with original tires now that isnt highway use but still. A great UV protection other than covers is Armour all works good if you keep up on it, once every couple weeks works great on flags too helps them last longer. I personally use covers and armour all cheap insurance I figure but I also wash and wax my TT a couple times a year, I just last year tried armour all on the awning will see how that one pans out in about five years.

my 83 park ave has tires on it from the 80's still. been garaged its whole life cept the last 2 years now. since then the tires have really started to show their age. of course its not a daily driver so probably should be covering it up. winter is coming to so it will get the full car cover treatment.

I used Armour all for years and then it destroyed some stuff on my classic car I owned at the time so I stopped using it.
303 UV protection is a better product so I've read

Armour all is only marginally better than spraying water or pledge furniture polish on rubber.....

Find a good rubber dedicated protectant and use than.
