contacted Goodyear today and filed claim. will be sending tire back to them. they gave me the impression they will take care of repairs. still waiting foe estimate from dealer for repairs. will be ordering new Michelin ribs tomorrow. thanks for all the great suggestions. wish it was easier to post pictures so I could show some of the damage.
To each his own but GoodYear is the only tire company that will back up thier tires. It is not GY's fault Montana will only pay for POS tires, they supplied them with what they wanted. I would buy the GY G14 G tires and never look back.

So I did not notice in the beginning that this was a Mountaineer model Montana. However, what I posted on page two still stands. Work the system with Goodyear and Keystone for G614's as a warranty exchange for the Marathons. This is a good case to show that even with lots of extra capacity(400 pounds per tire as was pointed out) ST tires are just not that good.
The warranty exchange with goodwill from Goodyear should put you on G614's for a similar price as high end LRE LT's or less depending of the amount of goodwill. File claims with both Keystone and Goodyear. Be nice, tell them you are a family traveling together and you are very concerned about the safety of your two children and your wife.
I agree and would say that 400 lbs of extra capacity per tire or 1600 lbs extra capacity total (lots of extra capacity) which is considerably more than typical new 5th wheels coming from the factory have, shows that many failures will occur on ST tires(especially those made in China) whether they are overloaded or not.
