I'm happy with my GY endurance tires so far. Had them since January. I used to only use LT tires, but these are doing the job.

This is the tire I run on my heavily loaded enclosed work trailer. Been running the for the last 10 years or so. I actually wear them out, alot of tight backing.

After 3 blowouts over the years I've switched from the G614s to Sailun. To early to tell but I'm optimistic with all the favorable comments I've read about the Sailuns.

^^THIS^^ is so UNTRUE and what the ST tire industry has brainwashed consumers with.

When I had STs pulled off my 5th and replaced with Bridgestone Duravis R250s the sidewalls on them is easily 2x them crappy China Bombs. There is absolutey no comparison between these tires. Dont believe everything you read or hear. See for yourself...

G614's continue to have a history of blowouts, there was a report recently on the Montana forum of a G614 blowout. Good decision going Sailun .

As far as the OP, if he goes to 16", Sailun would be a good choice ,but overkill. If he could find the rims that would work.

Please fill in the details. Were the blowouts determined to be GY's fault or road hazard? What date codes? Did GY replace them for you?

"G614's continue to have a history of blowouts, there was a report recently on the Montana forum of a G614 blowout."

Details??? Lot's of tires have blowouts that are caused by debris on the road, facts matter.

FACT is GY did have issues with the G614 in early 07 and a bit prior. FACT GY stood behind their tires and replaced then along with any damages no question.

FACT people keep bringing this up after 12 years. FACT is they have had a great record since.

Anyone saying the GY ENDURANCE with 2 years and 5 months on the market is NOT enough time to determine if a tire is going to be dependable is simply against that tire brand.

Tire depth is mentioned and YES it is less than some but I personally have not seen anyone wear one of these tires out.

They simply have a great product at a reasonable price.

I need advise on replacing the china oem tires on my 5th wheel. It came with st235x75r15 brand x tires. I am considering going to a Bridgstone Duravis m700 light truck tire in a 225x75r16. The Bridgstone Duravis is within 1" height of the size of the 15" that are on it now. I have used the Duravis on other travel trailers with great results. Of course I would have to buy new 16" custom wheels which will run about $110 each. My other thought was to just replace the 15" tires that came on it with Goodyear Endurance. I have has bad experience with Goodyear marathons. I know the Endurance is suppose to be a completely redesigned tire trying to bring people with bad Marathon experience back to Goodyear. We are planning a cross country trip next year and the last thing I need to worry about is a catastrophic tire failure. Please let me now your opinions.


Personally, were I in your boat, I'd go with the Duravis R250 all-steel tire. Cheaper than the Michelin Ribs and just as good, from what I've read here. Don't forget that you can sell off your old tires and rims and recover quite a bit of your cost back. Also, if you buy a tire/rim combo, it can save you a =lot= of money over buying them separately. Just make [email protected] sure you check the offset of your current wheels and match them. Most RV wheels are zero offset, but there are a few oddballs out there. You can ruin bearings/spindles in short order by running the wrong offset.

Lyle....From what I can find out from Bridgestone 1-800 tech line the Duravis R250 has been discontinued and replaced with the new R238. Same all steel ply carcass ribbed type tread like the R250 but has a bit more siping in the tread.
Some large dealers may have the R250 in their warehouse.

I agree 100%. The ST tires that came off my last rig were like bicycle tires compared to the Michelin Ribs that replaced them. If they made a LT tire that was in the load range I need, I would have them again in a heartbeat.
