I just returned from a trip south. Before I left I purchased 6 new G670's for my rig as the tires I had on were 7 years old and I did not want to take a chance with tires that old which I knew had to be replaced. Tires cost me $1290 for 6. During this trip I had one blow out (not flat) on the way down and one Blow out on the way back. Dot inicated the tires were made in nov 04. I checked to make sure air pressure was properly inflated and had rig weighted before I left to make sure proper air pressure was in tires. Not very happy with these tires. Wrote goodyear and have had no response. I did have the tires replaced at no charge to me during this trip as I did not want to travel without a spare. Anyone else have problems with the G670's. Should I get rid of them and get something else. Now I have that fear that another blowout is in the future. Should I feel safe using these tires with the experience I just had. One blowout on the dules which was controlable but the other blowout was on the front right and it wasen't easy controling the rig to a stop. Don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

I have been across country and back on my
G670's with no problems at all. I have only
had to ajust the air pressure twice in
almost two years.

A question if I might? You said you had your tires "properly inflated". Were they at the inflation that the MEASRED WEIGHT indicated them to be...or were they are the MAX pressure that the chart inside your coach says they are to be?

Oh! BTW...what size tires are they?

This is the first I've heard of anyone having problems with the G-670's. Could you give us some more details on the blow-outs, what size tires, and was the blowout on the sidewall or tread, also the location of the problem tires, ie., front, rear, inside or outside dual.

Thanks, Jim

Also were these tires the same size that came off? And were they front or rear that blew?

Sumptin' funny here if you only paid $1290.00 for six (6) Goodyear G670s unless they are a teeny tiny size. Everyvody on RV.net has paid a little over 2 grand for 6 22.5 size, the 19.5s are not much cheaper. Perhaps you bought seconds? Or had someone other than a truck tire place mount them? This is the first I have ever heard of ANY problems with these tires. I have 6 and they are great. But, I only need 90 lbs of air in them. Perhaps, as the previous poster asked, they were inflated to the maximum shown on the sidewall?


Sold our 2001 National Tradewinds, might buy a new on someday.

I also had 6 of them put on the Motorhome last Oct. and have had no problems at all. I did order the next weight up from what was on it. I went from an F to a G. The F was rated to match the weights on the spec. sheets for the Motorhome. putting on the G made the weight about 400 lbs more per tire. I always have the Motorhome weight checked before leaveing on a long trip with water propane and fuel tanks full,and I stay with in the weight on the spec. sheets. By going to the G means the tire is rated for more then its carrying. The price from the F to the G was the same.
We just got back from a 10,000 mile trip with not one problem.

I have now over 25,000 miles on my Goodyear G670s (19.5s) and have had no issues. I check the tire pressures (cold, in the morning) before each trip and over the last 2 1/2 years have only needed to add air, just a couple of PSI, twice. I run 5 PSI higher on each tire than the coach plate says, just a little extra insurance. I can't tell any difference in ride quality at the slightly higher pressure. My rig is not overweight and I drive around 62-65 mph on the open highway. I am sorry to hear you've had so much trouble when you endeavored to prevent tire problems. Could it be a faulty installation or bad valve stems causing the problems? Have the replacement tires had any further problems? We'd love to hear the outcome of this unusual problem.

Best Regards!
