My buddy bought a camper with these tires on it a few years back. Had a rear blow-out that took out his radiator. Fixed it, and checked all the tires and they all looked visibly fine.

These guys were friends of mine. For those not in the know, always wear your seatbelt and never drive when you are tired. Don’t let your enduring legacy be a breakout album and a small memorial on the side of interstate 5 in Oregon...
