Keep in mind that these tires are NOT good for steer axle use. Those that have put them on the steer axle have had extreme wear on the outer edge. I understand this is due to the tire design. They work fine on rear location.

We have not been able to log lots of miles on ours, but at 18000 we have absolutely no wear on any tire yet.

I believe the G670's are the tires Monaco has been using for years. I have 23000 on mine and they're wearing perfectly. I hate to say it, but I think those having problems with the tires have other issues going on. You also need to run them about 5 psi higher than the chart recommends.

Wow!! That's a great deal with the rebate. Thanks for posting the link Jim, I'm sure it will help out some members.

FWIW, on our previous rig, I replaced the Michelin 235/80R22.5 XRV tires with 275/70R22.5 Goodyear G670 in all positions and was thrilled with the handling and experienced no tire wear issues. If I recall correctly, I think I paid around $ 320 a tire so the $ 75 rebate on that size is a pretty substantial savings.

I saw the $80 offer yesterday and tried several places here in North Ga to check on prices. Heck, no one sells or installs the 295/80R 22.5 locally.

Any one know of a tire dealer in North Georgia that sells the tires? Was also looking for Bridgestone R280 and those are unavailable. It shouldn't be this hard to purchase tires!!!!

Hi Ho: We have a 2000 Itasca Suncruiser with original Goodyear G159 tires (245/70R19.5). They currently have almost 50,000 miles and still have 7/32 inch tread left with only very slight additional wear on the outside (including the front tires).

apparently the G670 replaces these tires for RV use. My question is whether we can expect them to be as good as the original tires.

thanks, Dirk

I think maybe your front end was out of alignment. I'm getting good wear out of mine and will by Goodyear 670's again.

The best price I have been able to find so far for GRV670 275/70R/22.5/tire $582.73 before the $80/tire rebate. Price includes mounting, spin balance, excise tax, disposal fees, sales tax, scrap tax and crap tax. Still looking! They have become so expensive, that Bridgestone or Kelly are looking good even without rebates!

It's amazing how much the tire prices have increased over the last few years. Admittedly, it's been about 3 years, but when I replaced our Winnebago Journey tires with the GY G670 in the same size 275/70R22.5, I recall paying around $ 2,200 for 6 tires mounted, balanced, and including all taxes. That works out to under $ 370 a tire.

Jim: Check with Wingfoot (Goodyear) -- I called Camping World, they put me on hold and came back 10 minutes later with $571/tire. I called Wingfoot, they said "Oh, Camping World just called on that tire too. We can do it for $493.75" -- that's taxes, mounted, spin balanced, out the door. That's also WITHOUT the rebate. With the $75 rebate, the total is $418.75. Mine are 6 years old, so they're getting replaced.

275/70/22.5 G670
