Replaced a set of 10 yr old GY670's at 32k miles when we bought our mh and they still looked good. Not even cracked. Maybe a fluke.

My G670 275/70/22.5 9 years 4 months old are still looking and working good with no cracks of any kind.

Wasn't true of the previous Michelin XRV's that had 2 zipper blow outs at less then 4-6 year old.

I will never ever put a Michelin back on anything.
Your experience may be different and nothing is wrong with that.

Are they any make of tire for a MH, that has never had any cracks or a blow out at some time for someone?

For OP Good Year has a 7 year warranty for cracks. Michelin has 0 crack warranty.

You would think LazyDays would qualify as a Good Year service center.
But there is a Good Year service center right across the road from Lazy Days.
Or Camping World one exit away.

I wrote Goodyear and this is what they sent me. So I guess when you have a blowout you should have a welded bracket on your trailer hitch to carry the bad tire to an authorized dealership for inspection.

Ronald,

Thank you for contacting our web site. We are always concerned when we
learn that we have failed to exceed a customer's expectations with regards
to our product or service.

All Goodyear tires come with a six year limited warranty against
workmanship or material related conditions that have occurred during the
manufacturing process. During the first 12 months or 2/32 of tread wear,
which ever comes first, workmanship or material conditions are replaced
with a comparable Goodyear product free of charge, mounting and balancing
included.

After the no charge period, tires experiencing a workmanship or material
condition that occurred during the manufacturing process are replaced with
a comparable Goodyear product on a prorata basis with the consumer paying
for the mounting and balancing.

Without inspecting the tire in question we could not comment as to it's
cause or condition.

Goodyear relies on a network of retail locations, both Company Owned and
Independent to determine warranty eligibility. If your tire is still
available and has not been inspected by an authorized Goodyear retailer we
would suggest you do so. You can locate your nearest authorized retailer
by calling toll free 1-800-466-3932 or on our web site at the following
path: Auto Services | Goodyear Tires

If after inspecting your tires the authorized retailer is unable to assist
you please ask them to contact our Customer Assistance Center toll free at
1-800-321-2136 to discuss your situation with one of our Customer
Assistance Professionals.

It appears in your first photo that the tire was a Load Range C. If so that seem way low. You don't show your coach profile, but at the size of that tire I would think it should at least be H rated. If it is a C it could have caused the sidewall to over flex causing cracks. Just a thought.

If you are refering to my GY tires, they were the origional tires on a new RV and were load range F (12 ply) max weight single wheel 4080 and dual 39??. The XZE I bought are 16 ply.

I had a front drivers side blowout 2 weeks ago in the ca desert. See picture. These are nearly 9 year old GO G670's. My pressure was set to 85 psi. The guy who replaced the toe told me it was under inflated. Nope.

Best of luck & safe travels.....

It might have been 85 psi cold when you checked it, but I'd be willing to bet it was no where near 85 just before it blew. A slow leaking valve, when it doesn't seat quite right after checking pressure, is all that's needed to bleed down to a dangerous level, in just a matter of hours.

Re the OP tires, well they sure look like bad tires to me, but LazyDays is an authorized Goodyear tire dealer, so I don't know why they couldn't do the inspection. I also question why those were installed on a 44' ENtegra to begin with. You said they are load range F? I have had Goodyear G670 RV tires, the same set of 6, on my coach for 10 years, and they still are in excellent condition. My motorhome weighs way less than your's, and my tires are load range 'H'. They have a higher load carrying capacity at 85psi, than the comparable Michelins at 100 psi. I keep mine inflated to 94 psi, and the handling and ride is quite good. The additional pressure provides some safety margin, in case of a slow leak.

I understand your frustration, and may react the same way, but I do agree that Goodyear has to inspect the tire, before they would replace; (and believe they would have).

Safe travels and best of luck with your Michelins.

I hadn't thought of that. Very possible. Thanks.

Looks like somebody has cut em. I have a 7 year old set of GY G670s and they look brand new. Will replace them with Toyos just because GYs are so expensive. Anyway, Good luck
