Goodyear G661 tire, any experience?

Yesterday I had a blowout and FMCA towing service sent out a service truck with a Goodyear G661 replacement tire (275/70R22.5, 03 Safari Zanzibar). I have not been able much info regarding this tire, but it appears to be designed for urban/regional truck service, and I question if it's appropriate or desirable for RV service. Has anyone had any experience or knowledge of this particular tire?

Rod
67 jaguar E Type OTS
55 MGTF
04 Land Rover Discovery
03 Zanzibar (only non British vehicle in the stable)

I would not be at all afraid to use it. The RV tire application is similar to regional trucking (as opposed to long haul or city bus/delivery) and most tire companies do not make a tire just for RVs anyway. The difference between that and Goodyears G670 RV model are likely to be unnoticeable.

Did you check the DOT date code on the one they brought you?
