Ron, I had that happen on my G614's.. darn tire was still aired up with no tread on it as I was changing it.. That was 2012.. I lost 2 of the G614's on 1 trip from PA to FL

.. replaced them ALL on the road because the Tire dealer in Darlington SC was awesome.. gave me a killer deal on all

"I BELIEVE there are 0315" Looks like you need to compare pic 3 to your tires.

GY replaced this tire and two others and I paid a pro rated portion. Then 6mo later the 4th one started doing the same and they replaced it for free. The replacement tires have been solid since.

I had heat/visually checked the tires 15 minutes before I noticed pcs flying off. These tires don't blow if they are part of this group of tires made around the same date they simply loose the center section of tread.

Third pic shows what they start looking like before tread loss.

This is the first GY tire issue I have ever had owning several sets of "E" thru "H" and not even a flat.

If your tires start looking like this Contact GY ask for the number of the GY area rep. Talk to him/her and have them set you up an appointment at a GY "OWNED" store!!!!! Otherwise an Independent will bend you over on the tire price so your pro rated portion will be higher than it could be.

Don't learn the hard way like I did!!!

Received my tires from Amazon and they were all made 9th week of 2019. Took the chance. With Amazons return policy felt it was worth it.

Thanks Ron...

This is my 5 season on them and hope to get threw till next spring before I think about swapping them out.. That just gives me something else to worry about being a week from your tire troubles..

Perhaps with my being lighter than you, that will help me get by?? .

That is what my GY G614 looked like, but mine tossed the entire tread and stayed aired up..

Honestly I would keep running them 6-7 years if the tires don't look like the pic! Just keep an eye on them. They don't suddenly look like the pic and pop off. I knew about the condition for a while but thought it was normal wear.

This is my first go around with the G114's.... Was hoping that I did not have to follow the 5-6 year tire change from the smaller, cheaper RV Tire... With these being made for commericial use, I would assume they would last longer..

I only have 12,380# on the trailer axles... PLENTY of margin !

"true" BUT...... unfortunately I have been on the receiving end of bad casing, or not done properly, or just plain retread failure driving big rigs for years....

Started running NEW rubber ONLY on the trailers many years ago.... Heat and Weight are not a good combination for casings...

I prefer to run NEW on my RV....

I agree! Most will never wear those tires out over 7 years.

We replaced our 5 year old Goodyear G614s today with Sailuns. We also have a busy travel season coming up and even though the 614s still look great I didn't want to take any chances.


I hope you sold them! I sold my GY "G" tires on CL for $300 when I went to GY "H".
