I estimate the rubber condition with regards to replacement, and not any particular time frame. I imagine there's a huge amount of variability depending on where/how they were kept. With a bunch of cracking, I'd be leery of driving it high speed/high temp. Slower and colder? Maybe. Depends on what I'm seeing.

I've never seen limestone gravel, is it really worse on tires than basalt?  It's not as hard, does it  break sharper or something?  I killed a set of BFG AT's on my '58 Chevy Napco in maybe 30,000 miles, almost all local logging roads with basalt gravel.  They chunked out.

If you get on a road around my parts that has crushed ledge 1" you going to get a punctured tire no matter what brand.
Some towns at now using a compacting roller after grading in the spring and the fall.

Been using Michelin xps rib on pick up and trailer for years. They are not cheap.

On my 06, bought new, i tok factory off and put bfg all terrains and got about 12,000 miles, went to cooper discover stt, about 15,000. When i lifted it, i put 37x12.5x20 toyo m/ts and got nearly 60k, with 80% highway. Bought another set and 50k, 80% highway. 
On my 12, 16 and 18 rams, all had toyo at2s but my last set, started on my 16 and swapped to my 18 dually, with about 8,000 on them, i got an additional 20k. Im looking for something else too and may try the at3s from toyo. If those are garbage, ill give the m/ts 1 more shot before hanging my hat up with toyo. 
I do 70% highway running, 25% dirt/rock road running and 5%, ground that 4x4 is required. Of those %s, 80% is 2wd only and 50% no trailer pulling. 

I was told when i bought my last at2s, toyo changed the rubber comp and they wear sooner. So buying shoes every 2 yrs @ $1500 a pop is a no go. I need something thatíll last more than 30k miles, yet offer better than 40% mud/slick ground reliability.

Just put on a set og Michelin LTX rated for 75,000k . I have them before and they are nice all round tire. Good in the snow and rain, and quiet on the highway.
