Ummmm....the Goodyear G614 RST is an all steel construction load range G trailer only tire. It carries size designation LT235/85R-16. Many of the middleweight 5th wheels come with LT tires - the Goodyear Wrangler HT was OEM-supplied on my previous Jayco Designer XL 3610RLTS and was an LT235/85R-16 load range E tire. They were replaced by Michelin XPS Ribs, another LT tire highly recommended by Michelin for trailer service.

The LT can and is used and recommended for a trailer/steer and drive axles. Before the tire indiustry gave us the infamous ST tire the truck and passenger tires were all we had to use on our trailers. The LT was and still is better designed and built tire to withstand operating in a trailer position.

This from Michelin XPS Rib website;
Michelin® XPS Rib® tires are the best value per mile in the Michelin commercial tire lineup and an ideal choice for commercial trailers because of low rolling resistance (for better fuel economy), a long-wear tread design and retreadability. These tires also have the strength of a reinforced all-steel construction for lasting durability.
Responsive handling helps you negotiate through tough traffic
Greater durability and puncture
resistance from a third steel belt.
Easily retreadable all-steel casing
Lowest cost per mile in this category
Resists sidewall damage with the sculptured sidewall protector.
Sidewall: black serrated
outline lettering.
Load Range: E
Service Description: 120/116Q

I tried Titan II, Marathon, Denman, and a brand I forget, ST tires on my 5er. Some were load range E, 10 ply. All blew or separated. I went with Yokohama Geolandar LT215/85-R16 and never had another tire failure.

Sell them on Craigslist and put the money towards some LT tires.

Sell them to a tire recycling plant. Maybe we'll drive over the little, tinny, shredded pieces used in rubberized asphalt, instead of the chunks we usually drive over.
