Finally lost a GY endurance

Well today I got up and noticed I had a flat on my tt. I asked the camp host where the nearest tire repair shop was and I was off. I dropped it off and asked them to patch it . Upon my return from the local southern classic fried chicken it was ready I went in to pay the fella at the register said we can't guarantee the repair ..... why is that I asked. He said the rock puncture had damaged some of the cord. He said I was gonna call you to see if you wanted to put a new tire on but we dont stock the 215-75 r14. He suggested I get a replacement soon as possible. It is holding air and I'm going to do just that and replace the tire with an identical one. After looking at the rock that came out of it I was realy disappointed at how easily the tire was cut and having only 1/4" of thread to start with has me thinking a LT truck tire would give better flat resistance.....but that is just food for debate!

We've had good luck so far with our GYs. They've got 3 1/2 years and 22k on them and I'm starting to replace them one at a time over the next year. I've often wondered about the tread and thickness of the material but they have performed very well for me. Punctures are a big drag!

How many miles on the tire?
I always wonder what people are getting for mileage before replacing.

Most RV tires age out before they wear out.

Well aware of that but what about the guy that travels cross country all the time?
What could you expect to get ? 25,000?
And we're talking Goodyear Endurance tires only.

I have almost 50,000 on Endurances -- they are four years old. Some wear, but not much.

Time to re-tire!

We had very good luck with endurance tires. Over 40k miles before we sold the Trailer. We installed them within 3 months of endurance coming out.

Gosh, and I was looking forward to getting a set of GY tomorrow (ordered last week)!

I've had two tires blow in the last 50 years. One was in 2016 (4 year old Carlisle on my TT) and one tonight (4 year old Carlisle on my aluminum boat trailer). Both had plenty of tread left, and I usually change trailer tires when they are 5 years old anyway.

TPMS went of less than 2 seconds after I heard the tire pop.

Hoping GY is the 'key'.
