I use to have GY 614 back in 2005.They was a disaster tire for 3-4 years.That make me go to Michelin rib (not to good for heavy trailers)and then Sailun.Well that the tire to use now a lot cheaper and a lot better.

See you drive a newer more dependable Ford truck. So the HORRIBLE previous Ford Diesel record didn't steer you away I guess.......

The key words "A LOT BETTER ", makes sense . Goodyears were a disaster , big reason many do not trust them. They have improved ,but not to the point of the dependability of the Sailun ,and price . No need to settle for second best ,when the Sailun is available .

Yes the 6.7 Powerstroke is a much better motor then their 6.0 or 6.4 [emoticon]

Well, FWIW, I did have horrible experiences with Chevrolet products, and have never, and will never, buy another one. So yeah, a bad experience can sometimes totally bias you against a product.
