New/Old Goodyear G670 RV Motorhome Tires Issue

New/Old goodyear G670 RV Motorhome Tires

My original tires were going to be 7 Years old, so I went around getting price quotes and comparing the different tires. I settled with the "Goodyear G670 RV" tire because it has a built in "UV" protection built into the tires. My local Goodyear Dealer didn't have the tires on hand and had to order them, I went ahead and gave a down payment so they could ordered them, thinking that after all being ordered they would be brand new and just manufactured and made arangement to have them install when they arrived. Guess what Goodyear Tire Co. did, they sold me tires that were allready three (3) years old!! No joke!! I contacted "Goodyear Tire Co." and complained to no avail. They said that the warrenty starts at the time of the sale and that the age of the tire didn't matter! Do you belive that! They would not even disconut their old tires! Sad. "Goodyear Tire Co." really, really let me down, boy what a company. Now I got so called new tires that are allready three (3) years old which means I will have to buy another set in just four (4) years instead of the usual seven (7) years! That really, really sucks. Lesson well learned! Guess which tire I won't be buying next time, Thats right! Now, I will only buy tires when I can see the date of mfg. on them before I purchase them. Don't make the same mistake that I made. Hope this information is usefull to all.

I would move a little higher up the food chain. Goodyear states that the tires should be replaced due to age as well as mileage, they can't say one thing and them turn around and change their minds.

On The Wings of Goodyear | RV Tires - Frequently Asked Questions - Tire Care

In the link below, Goodyear states that long periods of storage or inactivity is bad for the tires. It does not distinguish between on the RV or off. Get to an Upper Manager Level and reference him to this Goodyear link and ask if he would like to consider replacing your tires with better dating.

Goodyear RV Tires - Tire Care: Tire and Sidewall Weathering

With tires having a dating of 3 years when they sell them, that is excessive and to hide behind the 5 year warranty from date of purchase is BS from both the Dealer you purchased from and Goodyear.

I had the same thing happen in Fla when I blew a Michelin, but I looked at the date before the tires were installed and the dealer was gracious in going back to the supplier but all the tires he had were 30 months old so I went elsewhere.
A local dealer here in SC brought 4 "new" Michelins to his store but thery were 18 months old so he said "let me see what I can find." He called me the next day and said he had 4 that were 2 months old and were load range "H" which were 2 ranges higher than my originals. He sold them to me at the orignal price to my amazement.
I got "bit" at Camping World, of all places, on an RV tire so I know to go loaded for bear when I need tires. This is never an issue with car tires and I believe that most dealers don't think to check the date, plus RV tires don't turn over as fast as car tires so they tend to sit in the warehouse longer.

I just replaced my two Michelin front tires and told the dealer I wanted recent dates before he ordered them. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw 3409 on the tires. I don't know if the price was good, but they were the tires I wanted. I hate to think about pricing when I have to replace the 6 rear 1304 tires.

We purchased 4 G670's earlier this year which were installed exactly 10 days before the first rebate program started ($85. per tire or $340. tot).
We asked Goodyear for the rebate as no one mentioned the upcoming program. Most anyplace here in Austin will match a price (or program price) if it is found within 30 days of the original purchase date. NOT GOODYEAR. To make matters worse, we paid $130 more than a Michelin quote just to keep all 6 tires alike (dealer had steering tires replaced). Needless to say, It will be 6 Michelin tires next purchase!!!
We've been thinking of taking this to the Attorney Generals office.

Would like to know the dealer, I would blame him more than Goodyear. Sounds like he don't care much about his customers. He could have refused the shipment and he can specify anything he wants to on the order.
My problem with the Goodyears was that two could not be balanced and had to be replaced.

RE: New/Old Goodyear G670 RV Motorhome Tires Issue
I was in error about the age of my Goodyear tires- they were Over Two (2) years old instaed of over Three (3) years old. The date on five tires are (2007) and one is (3107) sorry about the error, but it"s still New/Old tires.
I purchased them on 8/10/09 from "Simple Simon Tire", in Baton Rouge, La
