goodyear endurance rsa tire

Does anyone have any experience with the Goodyear Endurance RSA tire. I am replacing my Goodyear G647RSS 245/70r 19.5. I have a 2000 Fleetwood Flair model 31A motorhome. My current tire has aged out. My dealer has recommended that Endurance. Looking for advice.

My advice is (I will never recommend the use of a Goodyear product) look at either Toyo or Michelin tires for your coach. That's just my opinion from previous experiences with Goodyear products. I have had them on cars, trucks, and this coach we now have. Not one time have they lasted or been supported by the manufacturer after failing. I presently run Toyo's and am satisfied with them so far. They are made in the USA and ride well. You will get a slew of opinions on tires on this forum. Just do some searching and you will find a lot of information.

I'll support half of c92vette's recommendation . I'm one who doesn't believe in paying the premium prices for either Goodyear or Michelin as top-tier manufacturers have to pass along their advertising costs to the consumer.

However, Toyo is an excellent choice for RV tires, IMO. It's a quality product at substantially lower prices than Michelin or Goodyear. Toyo has an excellent reputation among truckers and RVers alike.

Another advantage is that the Toyo warranty is better than Goodyear's. Toyo has full replacement through 5.5 years as long as the tread is within the first 2/32nds. Goodyear is full replacement within the first year and after the first year, you'll receive a prorated adjustment. Toyo's isn't prorated unless the tread is worn over the first 2/32nds which RVs usually will never exceed ...truckers will but most RVers do not put that kind of mileage on a tire. Plus, I've talked with a few who have found it difficult to deal with Goodyear over a warranty claim.

Toyo warranty information

I know it's not answering your question but I'd recommend the Toyo M143. You'll save a lot over the Goodyear product that your dealer is trying to sell you and you'll get just as good a tire.

I'm another who prefers something less over-priced than GY and Michelin. You don't have to buy cheap junk to get a much better price on a top quality tire. I have Continentals on the back and Toyo up front.

However, if you want GY, the Endurance RSA line is fine. It's a commercial grade tire used by fleets. It's designed for high mileage (not a plus for RVs) and good tire scrub resistance in urban and regional trucking. Tire companies consider recreational vehicles to be a "regional delivery" type of application, so that's a fit.

I must be a lucky one on GY. I have the Endurance on my 99 caddie and have almost 109,000 miles. I have Hankooks on my 64 caddy and my 82 PA and am happy with all.
