Life Span of Tires 
The tires on our Class A has been there a little over five years. They still got plenty of thread on them and so far no bumps or anything noticeable. My friend commented to me that even if that's the case, I should already change them. Should I?

Re: Life Span of Tires 
Five years is the average life span of tires. I'd suggest to go and have it checked in a tire service center just to make sure. Even though there's a lot of thread and it's still smooth all over, there might already be some wear and tear inside the tires themselves. The people working there will be in the best position to tell you whether your tires are still good or needs to be replaced. Of course, I highly recommend to choose a tire service center that you can trust and rely. Otherwise, you might just be given the sales talk by the people working there to change and buy new tires even though after checking them they still are okay.

Re: Life Span of Tires 
Have them checked with your local tire service center. Just like what angela said, they might look okay on the outside, but inside it's already worn out and if that happens, it will be just be like a time bomb waiting to happen.

Re: Life Span of Tires 
If you regularly have your tires checked and do the proper maintenance, it should be fine. You may want to check out the article here about how to get the most out of your RV tires for suggestions on how to take care of your RV tires and make them last longer than the average age.

Re: Life Span of Tires 
I agree with ej. Proper care and maintenance is really the key to getting most out of your tires. Typically, the average life span of tires is five years. But if you take really good care of your RV tires, and you don't really travel a lot in a year, you can actually stretch this one or two years more.
