Thanks for the replies. I think the size is right - GoodYear has been publishing the same diameter for at last 8 years. Doesn't mean it's right though.

The Sailun 235/80-16 is an option I am considering.


Curious have the GY's given you any problems?

If not then I guess it's down to $$$ and either US or Chinese Made.



I have not had any problems with the GYs. I live in Canada and the prices are very different here. The GYs will cost me just over $2,100 Canadian dollars. I don't have a firm price for the Sailuns but they are around $1,500 Canadian dollars. That's an expensive insurance policy especially when GY does not put it in writing that they will cover any trailer damage. If it isn't in writing then there is no insurance!

If I had G614s on my rig, I'd be comfortable running them for 10 years.

I tried to get them a few years ago and was quoted over $400CDN per tire = $2500 + installation.

Seems odd coming from those owning a made in Mexico truck.

Or a truck made in Canada.

Or a truck with a engine made in Mexico.

What country did those materials in the G614 come from.


Try to find a fully made American vehicle. At least it was assembled in Kentucky.

And GY will provide a better warranty on the tires.

I was running the 17.5" G114s and thought I could get 5 years, will last summer one blew like a shotgun going off. Lucky, min damage and GY did cover the replacement tire cost, but opt'd to give the Sailun's a try.

I believe I paid $1200 CDN out the door for the Sailuns and the G614's would have been well North of $2000. That's a considerable amount of money that could be used for travelling. I already pay for an insurance policy on the fiver so having 2 doesn't seem to make a lot of sense.

Not sure how your insurance works in the GreatWhiteNorth but down here a claim like that may cause rates to increase.

Having said that, 18 months ago I was hauling a friends 5er down to Florida because he didn't have a truck anymore. His rig had 12 year-old G614s. They looked brand new but I told him I wouldn't run tires that old on my rig at interstate speed. He was OK with the risk.

One let go and while it didn't do any exterior damage, the tread must have gone around a few times because it did interior damage. Broke through the floor into kitchen cabinets. It took a lot of effort, but he fixed everything himself.

Not usually for a comprehensive (non collision) claim.
