I got new tires for the camper today!

The OEM Westlakes were manufactured Feb. 2016 and I bought my current camper Oct. 2016. I have had blowouts on the interstate highways before and it is not fun.

We are going on a one month, Mid Dec. to Mid Jan. trip to the Keys. I was going to wait until Nov. to put a new set of tires on the camper. Discount Tire Direct had a $100.00 off flash sale per set of tires on Tuesday, I called my local store and they gave me the discount also. I got the Goodyear Endurance LT tires. Goodyear has a $60.00 manufacturer rebate on these tires also. I had them installed today. While waiting for the tires to be installed, and after I had already paid for them, I started wondering if Discount Tire gave a military discount (I am retired from the Navy). I went back up to my service guy and asked him if they gave the discount and he referred me to the manager who immediately gave me the discount!

So I got $100.00 off from the flash sale, plus 10% from Discount Tire and a $60.00 rebate from Goodyear.

So I only paid a total of $434.34 for a set of 225 75 15 LT Goodyear Endurance Tires including installation and balancing, with a manufacturing date of 3019, which means they are only 4 weeks old from manufacture!

Did you mean to say ST instead of LT?

Bought our Goodyear Endurance tires one day after our first blowout on our 3 year old Constancy brand tires that came on our Cedar Creek. 2018 trailer. Tires were over a year old when we bought new trailer. Got an estimate from a body shop to repair the damage.

All "Sounds" good but there has not been enough time to tell if the GY ENDURANCE will be a good tire. Only on the market for 2.5 years.

Maybe we can say "Good Tire" in 5 years??????

So, they've been out for 2.5 years, and I've only heard of one person who posted an issue (on Forest River Forums). That's already better performance than the China Bombs.

Gotta agree with you Mike!

I had a 2nd spare mounted up on a rim I kept in my garage except for when we took long trips, tire on that rim was a China bomb.

One day I went to get that 2nd spare to throw in my truck for our upcoming long trip & saw the thing had blown up while sitting in the garage *no joke*.
