You can't always see the problems coming with these tires - they may look great, but they may not be... I've researched it, and have decided to replace them this spring (if nothing else, for piece of mind).
Our Towmax's looked great too, right up to the point where 2 of them self destructed on the same trip. They had about 8k miles on them and were around the 3 year mark. I started worrying about tires when we had the previous HTT and bought a TPMS which I kept when we sold and upgraded to the 5er. It warned me of both tire failures and I was able to stop before any damage was done. My neighbor doesn't have a monitor and wasn't as lucky.
