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.


Not usually for a comprehensive (non collision) claim.


You are moving. Don't think that gets Comp.


Nice try , but it’s comp. Same if you get bad fuel and that cp4 in your new ram when you get it takes out your fuel system


Correct, it's a comprehensive claim which does not increase your premiums. I experienced this on my F350 when a top class General failed and caused $1500 worth of damage to the truck.

To be clear read my words. I was not positive as to the answer.

I was setting on my MC with kickstand down. Didn’t like position moved a couple feet let bike lean to left BAM CRACK the kickstand had moved up and bike fell against RV.

Called agent she said comp claim $100 deductible. She turned in claim. Adjuster called me told her the story. She said since I was setting on it it’s collision.

So ya never know till ya know for sure!

If you are polite and firm with Goodyear, they tend to pay for trailer damage. They will first offer to pay your deducible. But politely saying that you do not believe your insurance company should pay for most to the damage their tire caused works for many.

Or just buy Sailun S637s and have a lot less failures. Chris


I think that says it all, as the moderator said about hitch threads these tire threads get old. It’s proven many times about Goodyear failures and they continue . Yet some persist otherwise. Sailun simply haven proven to be the better tire .

My Endurance was a road hazard failure. GY said it was not covered, however as a courtesy paid for 1/2 the cost of the replacement. Better than nothing. Chris

I am NOT saying you are wrong, BUT like my friend tells me "prove it".

Show GY "G" and "H" tire sales numbers and Sailun's. Then show NON road hazard claims. Unless you do that it's all OPINION.

Who had a road hazard on a ENDURANCE and GY replaced the tire??? [emoticon]
Oh absolutely, it's all hearsay and anecdotal evidence. But there's a lot of it. [emoticon] That's one of the reasons I visit forums is to get opinions, and "news" about what works, and what doesn't. It's 90% opinion and sometimes unsubstantiated "facts".

There were lots and lots of tales of the China made tires from 5-10 years ago that frequently failed. That chatter was what made me get rid of my Carlisle tires, and of course the fact the two of them failed before they were 2 years old. [emoticon]

I don't base my actions on one or two opinions, or posts on a forum. But let's face it, the almost unheard of a failure of a Sailun S637 tire is pretty darned impressive.

Okay, I am curious. If that bolt didn't fit the definition of "Road Hazard", what exactly would? Not kidding, really curious.

I think what Chris is saying is...it is a road hazard, but he did not have coverage for that. Nice GY paid half, when they did not need to. Paying half was just good advertising, with very little actual cost to GY.

Yep, road hazard coverage for GY tires is an extra fee, which I had not paid. Chris
