Default Are my BFG Radial Mud Terrains ruined?

I lost oil pressure in my Samarai about 3 years ago. It's been parked on asphalt ever since. The tires look okay, but I can't drive it to see if the tires have flat spots or any other problems.

Any input if the 2000 lb Samarai is on junk tires?

They have probably dried out by now. Even if you pumped them up the surface of the rubber will crack. They are probably fine for driving around town but I wouldnt take them up to speed.

Default yup...

ya a tire not driven, in the weather has a "shelf live" of about three years. Usually after that the rubber breaks down..those tire are pretty tough..but i would be warry about driving on them..but givem a good look over and if there's no deep cracking i wouldnt worry about it too much...
