3 Year old tires.. Should I replace?

We have a 2016 Jayco Eagle HT 27.5. The tires look fine, still have lots of tread, no checking that I can see. We are leaving on a 5,000 mile trip and I am a little nervous about the tires. The question is...Should I replace them now?

Very loaded question, and I see a lot of varying answers.

Personally, if the look good,and have been well maintained. I would drive on them. On long trips I check my tires daily for damage, and signs of wear. If I saw any side wall cracking near the bead, they would be replaces, even if during the trio.

If China tires I would replace with the only US made ST tires, Goodyear Endurance. Or any good brand US made LT tires.

5000 miles is a long way.... I'd either replace them or take two spares, just in case.

My rule of thumb is 4 seasons, as long as there is no cracking, bubbles, or weird tread wear.
I also inflate to maximum cold pressure before every tow, and always keep the speed below 65(even on the higher rated tires).

The unit is 3 years old, but what is the age of the tires, DOT code?

As Earl said if Chinese, definitely replace.

First, I replaced the stock Rainiers with Goodyear Endurance after 3 years. However, the Rainiers traveled over 20,000 miles and never had a problem.

I do feel better with the GY tires, btw.

The sidewall will tell you where it's made. If it's a ST tire and not a Goodyear Endurance, it's not from the US. Most likely China but can be another country. Almost all ST tires are from China.
