If you'll read the thread I've cited and use the Search function, you'll find that the majority of problems have cropped up at or soon after the 3 year mark. I never had any problems until the G614s were 3 years old, then we had 2 tread separation failures within 3 months.
I was a big supporter of the G614s like you and thought everyone else must be wrong - until our first failure when I heard that sickening "BANG" while minding my own business while heading up I-45 at 62 MPH on an 80 degF day.
The second failure 3 months later on I-10 only confirmed what a number of other users had been trying to tell me.
You have an opportunity to "buy your education" regarding the 614s at the expense of myself and others. All I can do is wish you better luck than I had.
By the way, did your Goodyear area manager also tell you that special wheels rated for the 3750 lbs load rating and 110 PSIG inflation pressure are required if you're going to run the G614s higher than the 80 PSIG maximum inflation pressure of your previous Load Range E tires? From the Goodyear G614 website
*This tire requires a special high load capacity wheel and high pressure tire valve. Consult wheel manufacturer for proper application.
