Yep, this does not count as a failure.

Goodyear sent me a check for 1/2 the cost of the replacement tire as a goodwill jester. And no that bolt did not come off my TV or TT. It happen just before I got off US 60 at are winter park as we were returning from a side trip to Tucson. Was still leaking air when we pulled up in front of our park model. Chris

Not arguing that, the post was talking about Endurance which doesn't come in 17.5" size.
Yes I was running GY G114s until one exploded, approx 4 1/2 years old. Plan was to replace prior to the 5 year mark, but didn't make it.

Was it determined it was another faulty Goodyear tire ? Goodyear usually will not reimburse road hazard failures. Did you replace them with another set of Goodyears .

Plain and simple. GY ENDURANCE has ZERO reported failures being on the market for over 3 years now.

Simply choose your size and load range n get er dun. One you have done so maintain proper tire pressure and don't look back!

OH yea if YA care they are US Made!


I suggest you take a quick look with Google. There are several failures listed


Some interesting reading. A lot of tread separations , some damage ,several with bubbles in the tread . Hard to say whether defects or road hazard , but the Endurance seems to be getting plenty of press . As been said before the ratings on their E’’s are pretty liberal , I suspect they are not up to their weight ratings . I’m sure on lighter applications they will perform okay , heavier fifth wheels , there are much better choices .

One person makes a claim about their brand tires with no proof of that claim. ...but wants other folks to back up their claims.
'course we could make claims like that about any product. Mine was always the best....till I googled it

At this point, it appears we have a "Yes, there are.... No, there aren't!" type of argument. Since one can't post a link to something that doesn't exist, then we need a links to posts where they are said to exist.

I did a quick google search. but didn't find any posts, but maybe I am using key words that don't bring them up.

As someone who is interested from a technical point of view, I am asking for help. Please!! Post some links.
