Has anyoneused Sumitomo tires we need to get tires and I want Goodyear G670's but I havebeen told by every dealer that they have been on backorder and they don't know when they will be able to get them. I have been told by a few tire centers that they carry Sumitomo tires and all of there big trucking companies are using them and they have the same or better rating than Goodyear.

About a year ago, I was in the same boat you are. I was still working, for a large auto insurance company. They have a department that preforms tests on different auto items, including tires.
I was able to talk to one of the test techs, and was told that Sumitoro tires did not have a favorable rating.
With that info, I chose something else.

We put Sumitomos on the wifes car about 3 years ago and not a problem. They are a 50 series sport tire and doing much better than the previous Yokohamas that cost 50 % more.

I just had a phone call from Sumitomo tires rep. we talked for about 10 min he told me that the tire recommended by the store was to light on the sidewall that it only comes in 12 ply sidewall and the G series is a 14 ply tire so he would not recommend putting this tire on.
Tks for all that replied.
P.S. Now I am out looking for Goodyears again hope that the company releases them soon leaving in 11 days

A test on car tires has nothing to do with Motorhome tires. I would not run the sumitomo tires as they are designed for big trucks not an RV. Whole other application with different demands. The only companies that make tires specifically for a motorhome are Michelin and GoodYear.
