Slide show: Tire aging and service life for your reading pleasure. <--- that's a link.

And this from my 2017 Expedition owners manual. No reason trailer tires are any different:
Tires degrade over time
depending on many factors
such as weather, storage
conditions, and conditions of use
(load, speed, inflation pressure)
the tires experience throughout
their lives.

In general, tires should be
replaced after six years
regardless of tread wear.

However, heat caused by hot
climates or frequent high loading
conditions can accelerate the
aging process and may require
tires to be replaced more

+1 for five years from date of mfr code on sidewall. With all the extra weight and handling issues involved with towing, I will not takes chances.

For those that aren't wearing out your tires, how many miles are you putting on them? My brother-in-law's trailer tires are only 3 years old and his tread is getting very worn, BUT they have probably 20k miles on them, if not more, including some dirt/gravel roads.

I replaced our tires last summer before our first big camping trip since buying our trailer used. They were hardly worn and looked perfect but were 10 years old. This year we also purchased a TPMS as extra insurance.

The cost of tires versus the headache of roadside repair and or possible damage to the TT, isnít worth pushing them further then 5 years at the max, IMHO.
