FYI - the person in the warranty department, when told the approximate mileage on the tires was 14,000 miles, said that was very high and that trailer tires should not be used over 10,000 regardless of how the tread appears.

This sounds crazy to me... If you're paying attention to them. I inspect them every time I install and remove the X-Chocks.

I got about 30K miles and over four years on my toy hauler tires before I replaced them due to sidewall cracks. The tread was still good, so regular inspection for other flaws is the key to determining when to replace them. Our toy hauler went on trips twice a month and the tires rarely sat for more than two weeks.

On tire separation from a tire engineer:

Wow, read the link, the ply sep is EXACTLY what happened to us last fall on our out west trip except we have GY Marathons. Noticed one of the tires wearing "funny". At first I thought it might be axel shift but it wasn't, the opposing side tire was in perfect condition. Put the spare on it and finished the trip as we were actually on our way back home at the time. By the time we made it back home I had another tire starting the same thing! Called a tire shop, told them my problem and before I could finish my statement he said "don't tell me, you have Marathons made in China right?" Then he went on to say he sees it all the time! So we replaced the tires. [emoticon]
