Jim, no one said covering tires will stop dry rot but covering tires from direct sunlight is a factor in protecting tires from premature aging.

Yes, the tires are almost 3 years old.

The tires on the truck are older, but I periodically took it out and ran it a few miles to make sure the "tires are round".

Now we're talking about replacing 2 year old tires and putting campers up on blocks if they sit un-used for a few months? LOL


To be fair, nearly 3 yso. If maintained, kept inflated to max while sitting, I'd use them. Left sitting low pressure, 2 extremely low, for that length of time, some risk.

Unused for 2months, wheels removed, camper on blocks, someone needs more to do. Lol

For what it's worth: the 6 tires are Sailun S637s. Not quite a trailer tire; not quite a truck tire but very heavy.

Some of these tire threads are hilarious, good for a laugh once in a while.

Yeah, it's probably overkill when I think about it. Having 2 blowouts within 5 miles on 3 year old tires wasn't fun I assure you. And those tires got exercised regularly. It certainly makes you think differently.

I can tell you I wouldn't leave my RV sit for 2 years on low tires without checking them, moving the RV or removing them.

If they have the right tire sizes I wouldn't mind some new to me 3 yr old tires for free.. Heck, just took off some of mine that were 9 yrs of age that were on my TT.. Tread wouldn't pass inspection.
