Are you finding out that your tires rot before tread wears down?

I have about 19,000 miles on my tires purchased in 2010

6 year old tires with seperation betwen the treads, parked in the garage


Common?

6000 miles and 5 years. 1/4 inch crack in sidewall. Of course no warranty left. Rubber ain't what it used to be.

Brand and model tire info is needed for us to learn which tires to not buy. Jeffrey

it is a plot to get us down to one vehicle and no trailers! LOL. I have a flatbed trailer that gets a car put on it and pulled a couple times a year. The tread on the tires will probably never wear out. Same with my travel trailer! Better to be safe than sorry though. DANG, with 2 2-ton trucks, 2 tandem axle trailers, and 3 other cars, I am going to be tire poor!

Had a set of Hercules Hercumile 6.50x16 bias plys, bought in 1990 and had 'em on till 2013, over 20K miles (not including the drive to AK). Plenty of tread left, no cracks or rot, but got to where they'd hold the flat spot forever...after 10-15 miles even in summer they'd still jar your teeth out.

This is a common issue with RV's. They usually carry heavy loads and become dangerous as they get to the 6 year mark.

Don't get me started about the Chinese tires that are used on RV's.

I also learned about this recently when I was pointed to the cause of the death wobble I had in one of my old cars:
