Goodyear Tires

Anyone out there have a comment on the Goodyear 85 R 16 tire, load range G ? It is the tire that comes with the new Cedar Creek we are ordering and if it is junk I will negotiate different tires on our new fiver

Are you speaking of the 235/85r16 g614? I was going to go with this tire to replace the Carlisles on our Fuzion BEFORE we went on our maiden voyage. I chose to go with 17.5" tires and wheels because of the difficulty in finding replacement 235/85r16 G tires of any make let alone goodyear in a potential emergency situation. The g614 is an excellent tire from the info I have found however.

Run a search on G614 RST on this or any other RV forum. These tires have a long history of tread separations - we experienced two before we replaced the tires and wheels with 17.5" Load Range J Michelin XTAs.

Check the DOT code on the sidewall of the tires. That is the two digit alpha numeric code following DOT on the tire as in DOT XXXX. If they were manufactured in China, you have what is referred to on the RV nets as "China Bombs". If you do a search on China Bombs you will need a few weeks to sort through all the posts about ST type tires manufactured in China and how tread separations and blow outs occur often.

Check here.

I replaced the G614 16" G rated tires on my 15,000 Lbs 5'er with 17.5" Michelin J rated tires. The four J rated tires will carry 19,000 Lbs total and the G614 would carry 15,000 Lbs. I was having some blowout problems with the lighter tires. The original G614 s were barely adequet. Now I have a cushion.

I believe in putting tires on the rig to carry 125% of the rig's total weight. Forget the weight on the pin and you have a nice conservative setup as far as tires are concerned.
