When I replaced the tires on my previous high wall popup, I went with Marathons. Had no issues with them.

Not sure what you mean by "indeterminate age". All tires by law have the born on date molded into one sidewall. It is the last 4 numbers of the DOT serial. If you don't understand this you can learn more HERE.

Thanks. Looked at the tires, they're dated 0904. Need new ones, huh?

Checked my spare. Same date, but clearly has never touched any road. Can I use that?
