Goodyear G670 rebate ends this month

Just a reminder if you're considering new tires soon.

$80 per tire rebate (by mail) for G670s until July 31st.
Also got $90 each for my old Toyos from Pete's Road service.

Really took a bite out of this considerable maintenance expense.

BTW, I chose 295/80s due to higher load/less tire pressure ratings.

That $ 90.00 return on the Toyo tires sure tells quite a story about them. They are happily on some type of a vehicle. That is an extremely high trade in value.

Why so much? Were they still pretty new?

This really has us curious.

Lastly, how did you like the Toyos? Sounds as if you traded them in early; if so, why? It appears, from your choice of Goodyears, that you may have been looking for a little softer ride.

There is a ton of discussion on the forum about tires--G670s seem to have an edge but Bridgestone and others are competitive. While tire age and remaining tread depth are major factors on trade-ins/refunds, tire size is key. I am told the 295 R70 is a compatible size for re-use on trucks/trailers. We went with the G670s but am not sure the 295 R80s will have the same re-use value.

We replaced our original Toyo's with G670 295 80s simply because of age and concern over the weight rating of the Toyo's. Thanks to this forum we received $480 in rebates from Goodyear that we had no clue was available. The 80's seem to be a perfect size replacement for the Toyo's. Les Schwab gave us $30 each for the Toyo's that looked brand new.

Forgive me for starting another tire thread, but there is always someone interested

My Toyos were dated 02...on my 04 Alpine. No, I didn't check when I took delivery

They had ~20K miles and looked pretty good. Dealer did say that size and age were also important and said he wouldn't have a problem selling them to his semi customers.

I replaced my rears; replaced the fronts last year, which were not in good condition (sidebar wear, uneven tread).

I chose the 295/80 with nothing more than amatuer logic and desire to be closer to the middle a load table, for the fronts anyway.

Compared with Toyos tire pressures (which appear to match the axle ratings at my Factory settings 120psi/FT, 90psi/RR), I come up with 100psi/FT, 85psi/RR for this tire for the same load 13K/Ft, 20K/RR. Tune from there to your coach's weight.

I see this as an improvement over the Toyos. Had 1 trip with the fronts (which seemed noticeably better). Taking a trip soon with the full complement.

Buying new tires...

Is anyone buying Michelin tires?

When we get home (SO CAL) from this trip (MI & OH) we are thinking about replacing our Goodyear 295/80 tires because of excessive wear & 35000 miles. We have had the front end aligned twice and the front passenger tire replaced and still have excessive wear.

After having a blow out on our '03 toyo tire (@34000 miles), we replaced the front tires with Michelin directional steering tires 295/80s and noticed what a nice, comfortable ride they gave.

We have seriously thought about going with Michelin tires for the quieter, comfortable wear. We replaced the Perelli tires on our car with Michellin and couldn't believe the more comfortable ride they gave.

So again I ask - Is any one buying Michelin Truck tires now?

How do we find out how to get the $80 rebate. These are the tires we want but don't find anything at Goodyear's website indicating that high of a rebate. I do see "Up to $60 rebate if you get their credit card". Is that it??? Thanks

Myth:

Try selling to a truck shop as a last resort. At least you could get $100 each, maybe. Most truck tire shops buy popular tires to resell.
