New Tires!

I must say I got my money's worth and then some with my old tires. Close to 12 years!

Just got back from having all four tires replaced and a new wheel with one of the old tires mounted on it for a spare (wasn't too bad, will be fine in a pinch for now). They also balanced the tires, never heard of this before, but kinda made sense to me.

Feels good to have new tires. Oh, the simple joys in life for me!

It was a revelation to me when I first discovered that I was supposed to rotate my car's tires. You might check with the dealer to see if they will check and rotate your trailer's tires, if you trailer a lot. You see, the insides of the tires wear differently than the outsides and rotating L to R will get them to wear more evenly. Generally you do so on your car after about 5,000 miles.
I know what you mean about getting your money's worth. I got almost 100,000 miles on a set of Michelin's!

Good idea Corporal. I will call them and ask. That makes sense to me.

I haven't trailered a lot in the past 2 years, but plan on changing that as my health is allowing it.

You definitely got lucky with your old tires. Even completely unused, the shelf life on an average tire is 5 years. They can rot out just sitting there. Glad you have new tires!
