Not a single one! It just kills some that GY has a successful trailer tire.

ROFLMAO.....because no one answered his question on here that proves something? How many active members here? 27 or is it 29?

BTW I have read of a couple Endurance tires that developed bubbles, and one let loose after a few days parked at a campsite while the guy was having his morning Joe. That doesn't prove squat either. Go over to FRF and global search for Endurance failure.

I'm thankful I have never developed a case of Brandichosis. Thank you Jesus, Thank you Lord.

Was it road hazard? Or was it the tires fault? Did GY look at the tire?

I am NOT saying it's not possible to have a bad tire but I follow many Forums and not a single tire "failure" that I have seen posted.

I spoke to Fred Khatami a while back when he was helping me with a tread separation on a GY 17.5" "H" tire and asked him about the ENDURANCE. He said "they have been trouble free". He is a GY Field Rep in SoCal.

This one? 7 pages and nothing other than he posted his date code.

Tireman9 even asked for pics.

Yep, that's the one I would assume.

A good reason why I pay little attention to any tire threads / posts on RV forums, good, bad, or indifferent.

Just this weekend I was sitting stopped behind someone waiting to make a left on a two lane highway. Some dunce pulling a small TT decided waiting was not for him, so he moves right crossing the white line onto the shoulder which was sort of wide, and passed the two people behind me, myself, and the guy turning left on the right while we were all stopped. He did so at speed, around 40 mph, and I heard all the debris he kicked up pepper my truck as he went by, and seen it flying around too. Wanna bet if he had a tire issue down the road a mile or two from that debris it would not be his fault, but the tires fault?

Not a single one you say, seriously [emoticon]

If it does turn out to be successful , that would certainly be a first.

I have invited you a few times to go read the Goodyear tire failures on the Montana Forum , you seem to have your head in the sand on the Goodyear tires . Another the other day ,this was one of your favorites, the G114. The G614 pops up quite frequently.

On edit, for Cummins12V98, this post was not intended to include the Endurance ,should of been more specific , it was intended for the G114. and 614. No I never read about any issues with the Endurance on the Montana Forum ,nor have I ever mentioned the Endurance as far as issues .

You should be thankful [emoticon] If not you would have to go get a Ram truck, to join the Ram Mafia, the B&W heavyweight club, the list goes on [emoticon]

"As I have mentioned before. I have blown 3 trailer tires. They were all aired properly. They were all properly maintained. ( I blew 1 more , but it wasn't mine can't say how it was maintained) They all had had serious tread separation. AND they were all in their 4th (fourth) summer. Having had to change 3. 4 year old tires on the side of the highway. I will never run 4 year old tire again on a trailer again. Trailer tires age differently than car, or truck tires."

Well, if I worked with that theory, I'd be changing tires at 2 years, because the properly maintained ST tires blew at less than 2 years old. [emoticon]

Then again, perhaps if you had been using LT tires instead of ST tires they would have lasted longer than 4 years. My 6 year old LT tires show absolutely no signs of weathering or dry rot. Being built better is a definite plus.


Wondering. Can you get 14" LT tires, and do they lube themselves sitting still????. That is what causes them to rot.
Why yes, amazingly enough you can get 14" LT tires. If you let your tires sit long enough for them to rot, maybe you should consider taking up another hobby. I do use mine occasionally and have no issues with rot.

And of course, YMMV.


I use mine all summer. but from end of Oct to March it sits. Or has been.
