I replaced/upgraded my tires after 4 years & 50-60k miles. Changed due to tire wear as opposed to age & upgraded to a heavier tire/wheel combo at the same time.

Five years, when I traded units. It was an '06 that had properly sized Goodyears from the factory. I was nervous from things I had read but they looked just about new and had not cracked. Trading solved the dilemma. I really didn't see any obvious reason to get rid of them and if I hadn't been reading forums wouldn't have considered it an issue. I think it depends on tire quality, care and use. My current unit is upgraded a letter grade and to LT tires which I don't plan on changing until they show serious wear or cracking. My admittedly subjective opinion is that other than G or H rated Goodyears, ST (trailer) tires tend to be considerably less viable than vehicle tires for a number of reasons. I know others have other opinions but this has been my experience.

Trailer tires have to have much stiffer sidewalls, watch the tires when backing 90 degrees into a spot.

1 year, about 2k miles. Had 2 blow outs on one trip and replaced all of them when I came back.
Before you ask, had tpms on and they were up to pressure when they both blew. lol.

I made one trip to WA. the first year with the camper, and one time out here locally. Changed them out the next year for Goodyear Marathons. In 2013 I swapped out the Marathons for 16 in. Goodyear LT's. Nothing wrong with the Marathons. I just needed a little more height to help level the camper up when I got the new truck.

After about 5600 miles one of my original tires separated. Since I was towing a little nose high, I replaced the 15" tires with 16" Michelin XPS RIB LT tires. I bought the wheels and tires from Tire Rack, and they mounted and balanced them. It was well worth the investment. The peace of mind alone was worth it. They arrived with 80 psi in them, and the trailer tows much easier with them on it. I got 14 MPG on my last trip.
