I had problems with "rivering" or "erosion" wear conditions.
Starts in the 11 to 15k range and then gets worse quickly,
by 25-30k the tires are shot. I have a 40' DP.
Went thru two sets of tires on the front in 60k.
What problems are you having ?

I have read so many threads over the years about problems with those Goodyear G670 RV tires, I decided that I would never use them.

To date, I have not regretted that decision.

i bought a 2012 vista...goodyear 19.5g670's all 6 tires were out of round... and all 6 wobbled... good year swapped out 2 fronts... the coach still had a viberation..
so I took all 6 off and went with 22.5's....coach was smooth...
bought a 2014 fr3.... same thing...19.5s... took them off and went with 22.5's and smoothed it out...

bought a 2014 tribute....same thing.... good year swapped out only two and the coach had a viberation.... kinda like the drive shaft... but it was the tires..

traded the tribute for a 2015 excursion same thing with the goodyear 22.5s

goodyear only would swap out the fronts....

traded the excursion for a winnabgo class C 25'r.... no problems with the tires but I did put 19.5s on it

traded the class c for a 2015 26he vista.. same thing viberating shake... put the 22.5s on it ....smooth


traded the 2015 vista for a 2016 26' sunstar....horrible shake... went to the truck tire shop..the driver front was 14 oz out of balance...and all the rest were 6oz to 8 oz out of balance
all the tires wobble side to side and are out of round

the swapped the two fronts for new... one of the new was good... the other has a bad wobble..... the 4 rears all balanced to 0 but wobble.... goodyear blamed the rims..

so I swapped the steel wheels for aluminum wheels...no change... wheels spin purfect....tires wobble.....

I personaly think the the tire shake and wobble make the coach not track true and the tires get hotter than they should....

going back to the tire shop tomorrow.... it rides like a car that sat for too long and has flat spots..... the viberation starts at around 45/50 mph and gets worse to 78mph....all that shaking can't be good

Off topic but you got me curious. I counted 7 rigs in approx 3 yrs.

Can I ask which one was your favorite ?

What problems are you having ?
X2 on the rivering...Installed Michelins 3 years ago and 16 K miles. So far very happy with them. No more GY's for me.

I guess you got to be lucky to get a good set of any tires ... I'm done with michelins for my car and 1 ton trucks never again will I buy them... I got more mileage out of Cooper tires and goodyear than the last two sets of michelins .. You don't always get what you pay for in any of them !

Funny, the Michelin tires on our Honda CRV have 93,000 miles on them!

Our Goodyear G670 RV tires on the coach have 45,000 miles on them and are "rivering" really bad. Just started about 8,000 miles ago.
Here is a picture I got off the net. Mine look slightly worse than shown in this picture.

search on Goodyear G670s Blowouts returns 57 results. XRV Blowouts returns 193 matches. That something like 3.5 times as many posts for Michelin XRV blowouts vs Goodyear G670 blowouts.
