I'm assuming that you have an RV and not a Trailer given the price you mentioned?

I would just be checking the sidewalls for evidence of dry rot. If there are any cracks or dry rot, I would definitely replace them.

Here in the Desert SW, we're lucky to have a set of tires last for more than a couple of seasons. The heat just kills them. Thankfully, I replaced all 4 tires on our trailer about 5 years ago and they are still pretty good. I have to add some pressure to them as the stems leak a bit.

If we planned on a long trip, I would consider replacing them, but since most of our trips are only a couple of hundred miles, I think we're good.
