TV/TT Tire dry rot, or is it something else?

When inspecting your tire's sidewall, have you noticed the following:



I found the following "Tire Tech Information" article informative....., so don't replace your tires just yet....,

Good information to have on hand.
A long time tire guy I know said to me, as long as the cracks aren't deep enough to get into the belt area, you are okay. It often can be a tough judgement call as to how deep is too deep?

Recently I took the step of replacing my 5 year old cracked TV tires, for peace of mind. They had been showing cracks for the last 10,000 miles, and slowing getting worse. It's like the guy who jumps out of a 15 story building......as he falls past the third floor, people hear him say....so far so good!

It would be nice if there were a way to measure something to help make the judgement call as to how deep are those cracks?

You can make tires look like that by rubbing the curb repeatedly.

Welcome to the forum! Your question is almost as divisive as "What's the best truck?" Everybody has their favorite and mine is Maxxis.

k80trapper,

I've run Maxxis on my TT's and have had great results, and would also recommend them. My latest set of tires I went with the newer Carlisle RH Radial's on my TT, and have also had great performance to-date as well.

My TV I went from BFG's to a set of Mastercraft HTR/LT's (Cooper Tire) a couple of years ago and I'm very satisfied with them. Mine have the highway tread so they may not be for those that like a little more aggressive tread for snow and loose dirt.

There are other great brands out there...., but IMO in most cases proper maintenance of tires goes a long way for tire life/performance.

Bob
