Kind of what I thought, mine have been excellent so I was ready to just buy them again. Have looked at other tires, but the Goodyear RSA is basically the same price as the Toyo right now so I will probably go that way.

I will take photos if they will let me once the G661's are off the coach. If the RSA's perform as well I will be happy.

A lot of dealers have them in stock- get some before they run out.

Think I might be careful doing that because if they are out of production then any in stock tires are gaining in age.i

Just wanted to provide an update. The Goodyear G661 HSA tires came off today and were replaced with Toyo M154's. I was going to go with the Goodyear Endurance RSA as stated earlier in this thread because they were the same price as the Toyo's, but I called the shop in CT who does some of the work on my coach just to ask if they do tires. He saved me almost $700 on a set with the Toyo's, whereas the local dealer were the same price Goodyear or Toyo.

The Goodyear G661's still looked great, although the rubber was definitely harder than the new tires due to their age. I didn't feel comfortable pushing them too much because when I first bought the coach (2014) I ran one for about 100 miles with only 45 psi in it. I had the federal inspection on the tire and have since put another 20K miles on the set including the one that ran low. The installer also reinspected the tire after I told him what happened four years ago and he said he still sees no sign of any internal or external damage on that one tire. So I think that says something about the G661's and the inspector told me at the time that an RV tire wouldn't have survived that abuse.

So for how we will see how the Toyo's perform.

Vettenuts,

I am not a bit surprised that the tires did so well. They sure are a durable tire, that ages very well (like a good wine. Lol.).

Thank you again for taking the time to give to review .
