Suggest you buy a couple more sets of those tires! That is terrific tire mileage for a tandem . . . especially the back wheel! What brand/model/size tires are they?
Do agree, check tires closely for cuts/dryrot/checkering of sidewalls. If thread pattern is worn and is now smooth . . . still good to go.
Most tires now are much lighter than in the 'old days' due to thinner sidewalls/less rubber/kevlar beads.
Normally get around 2,000 miles on a rear tire and up to 3,000 on a front tire nowadays on our tandem. However, depending on luck, brand/model of tires, you experience can/will vary!
