Do RV owners know about tire age?

There are many posts on how to learn the calendar age of tires by reading the DOT serial number and "de-coding" the last four digits to learn the week and year a tire was made.

But just knowing the calendar age doesn't tell you the useful life of a tire.

Some folks think ten years or longer is OK; others think it is a good practice to change every two years.

We each have different operating conditions which affects the "functional age" of our tires.

I arranged for a poll to be taken on It asked the question: "Have you ever heard the phrase 'Tires age out before they wear out?'"

I was pretty sure that many of you had heard the phrase, but now I have the numbers.

If you participated, Thanks!
