    I've been reading a lot about tires here and online. I'm wondering what folks in these types of climates are using for their replacement schedule. I was thinking I may do every 4 years based off what I read, but wanted feedback from others.
    A lot of folks mention the conditions you store them in. Being in Arizona, dry rot for tires is a big concern. My PUP is stored in our garage away from all elements but heat and dry air. I do not have tire covers for when we are out camping though. I also check pressure and visually inspect both tires and the spare before we leave each trip.

    Thanks!

    Five years is a good lifetime for tires. I recently made the mistake of saying "I'll replace them after this trip."

    UV light is what causes dry rot faster than anything. With your being keep inside away from sunlight they should be ok for 5 years. providing they are properly maintained
