Bought any Goodyear Tires Lately?

Started shopping for six new Goodyears, (275/70r 22.5) this week and damn near had a heart attack. Seems the cost of tires is going out of sight. The lowest price quoted was $564/ea and the highest was $691/ea plus installation, balancing, stems etc.

Anyone purchased these lately at a decent savings and want to pass on where you got them? I live in south Florida and have a cross country trip planned in the spring.

Please keep the replies limited to Goodyear. It's not my MH, belongs to a friend who is letting me use it for the summer and he likes Goodyear.

You might want to consider looking at Toyo Tires. They are highly rated, and when replacing my 6 Michelins XZAs I saved over $1000.00. We've been pleased with their performance, ride, and handling.

A couple of years ago when shopping for a set of tires for the towd, I discovered that prices for tires were regional. We had a trip planned from FL through GA, SC,NC, KY, TN, OH, IN, MI. I found pricing for tires in IN to be 40% or so less expensive than in FL so I bought them there. I am getting ready to buy motorhome tires and am finding pretty much the same thing.

It sure would be worth some phone calls along your planned trip route just to see if this holds true for you.

My son owns this shop you might give him a call for a good price on tires. If you leave me the information here I'll get some prices. You would have to arrange in advance. This is a full service shop that is in a good location. He can get about any brand. He operates his heavy haul trucking company out of his tire / repair shop.

Got a quote on Michelins from Costco...about $150 cheaper than the G.year. Plus I've had GYear tires...they're just "meh".

I have Goodyear Tires on my tags. I believe Goodyear owns Dunlop. I bought two Dunlops 6 months ago because they were significantly less money, made in the USA, and looked the same as the Goodyear tires.

Just another comment. I have had BF Goodrich, Michelin, Goodyear, Dunlop, Firestone on my motorhomes in the last ten years. All worked well. No problems with any of these.

And for the most part, the prices aren't THAT much out of line. Tires have become MUCH more expensive over the last six years or so. I think the price of COSTCO MX LTLs have doubled. My race tires (which weigh all of about eight pounds apiece) have gone up from $800/set to $1200/set in the last two years.

Hey, I'm not a Goodyear fan either and tried to convince my friend to use something else but he loves his Goodyears. I like Michelin on my cars but he and his son experienced blow outs with them on their MH's. Also a fan of Hankook's which I've found to perform as well as Michelin at half the price. Either way, this is too good a deal to pass up for me. For the price of six new tires and a service I have the use of a 40' Monaco Diplomat for the summer.

Good Year had their share of motorhome blow outs. Anyone recall the lawsuits surrounding a few years ago (the G159s) ? Even the G670s are not without incident.

we've had a blow out with Good Years. I know it can happen with any brand, but when it happens to you, you start having your doubts about running the same tire.
