I would replace them because they have AGED out. A blown tire can cause more damage when it seperates. My neighbor had over $2000 damage to his includeing tearing off the sewer line. Poo Poo everywhere.
I purchased a used 2001 TT in 2007. On my first trip with it (about 1100 miles) I had 3 blown tires. the third one resulted in $6877 worth of damage to the unit. Much cheaper to replace the tires.
A good tool to have on hand is a valve core tightener. I was losing air in one of my truck tires and figured I picked up a nail or screw somewhere. I took the truck to a tire store and they found the core inside the valve was loose. A quick turn with this tool fixed the leakage. Now I'm in the habit of occasionally checking ALL tires (truck as well as fiver) with the tool.

I finally had an opportunity to try to inflate my tires. (I had to buy a compressor first).
The tires are Mission radials. The imprint on the sidewall shows that they are a little over six years old.
I found that all four valve stems were leaking badly.
I will replace the tires and use steel stems.
