RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

People constantly complain about "junk" but are happy with substandard wearing tires. If you're happy with tires that last two years, more power to ya. I feel my tires, trailer or passenger vehicle, should last more than two years. This is strictly my opinion. You don't have to like it, but that's the way I feel. Under normal usage these tires would absolutely last much longer. Safe practice is replacing trailer tires every 4-5 years regardless of wear. The average camper is not on the road 12-15K miles a year like us. Most trailer tires will never see that many miles. I don't think it's fair to call these tires "junk" based solely on my review.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

One thing about switching to a LT tire that some aren't thinking about it the size of these tires. A 255/85 is a 33x10. It is a HUGE tire to be on a camper. Most LT's that size are all terrain tires with a lower load capacity. These GY's have a load capacity of 4080lbs and I need every bit of that as we load to full capacity occasionally.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

I would be concerned about the slight cracking. With that many miles on them, they have not been sitting long enough to dry rot, and they are only 3 years old. Should not be cracking. I agree, but it is hardly noticeable at this point. I didn't see it until I had them off today and in the sun. If I took a picture of the tire, you wouldn't see it.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

"Flat spot" Why is that? UH maybe a brake sticks in one spot??? "seems slightly out of round" Why is that? Have you jacked it up to see if it actually is? So 25-30k per set, where are the failures? Maybe "flat spot" wasn't the best choice of words. There's a spot roughly the size of my hand where the tread is worn more than the rest of the tire that caught my attention. Out of round....Yes, I had the tire off the ground a little and it "grabbed" the concrete just a little in one spot when I spun it, nothing major. I guess this is a hot topic here lately, I don't get on here much anymore. I just felt like I've probably got more miles on mine than most so I thought I'd share my experience with them as they are still new in the market. Cracks could be from not covering, it doesn't sit for very long at a time so I don't fool with covers.

Goodyear Endurance long term review.

My 2018 Jayco Talon came with the Goodyear Endurance ties in 255/85/16. We use our TH for our sons racing which spans from Fla-NY about 10 months a year. I'd estimate we have approx. 25-30K miles on these tires. Generally, the wear is even on them although one has developed a flat spot and one seems slightly out of round. All four are down to the wear marks and starting to show very slight cracking. I'd say these are loaded on average at 75% capacity and always aired to max psi. Rotated a couple times a year maybe. I'll be replacing them very soon with another set of the same as I've been pleased with these, considering the milage I've put on them. With the average user not putting this much milage on camper tires I would highly recommend these.

RE: My F250 finally bit me in the bu##

...Take your moderately equipped diesel truck that “we” say can be had for $50k. Round numbers. Obviously that’s $10k or more off the sticker...Good luck getting $10K off the sticker on a $50K truck. You ain't been shopping for a while. Even A-plan is not $10K off the sticker. You aren't doing it right. Nope, I've bought two Rams in the last three years and got 10K off both. It's nothing spectacular, it's actually the norm. On my 18, I offered a price exactly 10 grand off sticker and he immediately took it...:S

RE: Jayco Talon

It seems that not many stand alone Jayco dealers are stocking the Talon's in their inventory. The only places around here (south east) that I see them area at Camping World. I had to have my local Jayco dealer order it for me, and they beat the CW price. I have two Jayco dealers within a couple hours from me and both stock a different brand for their toy haulers. Not sure why. So yes the Talons are out there and are a very good camper for the price point. There's just obviously more margin in the $75K models which is what you usually see sitting on the lots. Just find you a local Jayco dealership and see if they'll order it for you. And yes the stereo and the mattress is ****. I've changed out both in mine as well. My radio lost it's RF tuner and I just replaced it with a better one from a car stereo store. I've replaced the outside speakers as well.

RE: Jayco Talon

I bought a 413T early in 18 and have been decently satisfied with it. I've fixed a LOT of minor issues but it hasn't been back to the dealer at all yet, although it's going in January for a fresh water leak underneath somewhere. I did replace the brakes under warranty through Lippert, so no fault of Jayco. We don't use it for leisure, my son races dirt bikes, so we're in it around 25-30 weekends a year. I put around 15K miles on it this year. So with our use, I'd say it's been pretty good. No real design issues to speak of in my opinion. We opted for the sofa vs. the dinette. I tow it with a 2018 Ram 3500 dually but I had a 2015 Ram 2500 for about half the year. The 2500 did just fine, although you'll be told a 2500 isn't enough truck. The only reason I upgraded was I wanted the Aisin and 4.10's. The 2500 and it's higher gear ration seemed to really cause it to work a lot, but the truck itself handled the load really good. I did extensive homework prior to buying. The Talon and the Seismic are VERY similar in overall build construction, down the the R values. Just minus the bells and whistles. It's even wired for the 3rd AC, you won't find that in any Talon literature because it's a selling point for the Seismic. I can't speak for Camping World, I ordered mine from my Jayco dealer, who I've bought from in the past.

RE: Your thoughts on the New Honda CRF 450 L

Like previously mentioned KTM has had, and always will have the premier dual sport bike. Yes they cost more like the rest of their line up but there IS a huge difference. Off topic but, My sons and I race hare scrambles, (woods racing). I have 6 KTMs in my garage and just this Sunday I raced for the first time on my new KTM 350 after riding my Honda 250X for years. The balance, weight and overall feel of the KTM is night and day better. In our off road racing world those who ride Red, Blue etc etc often poor mouth KTM because of price, but then will typically immediately purchase after market upgrades to new bikes and by the time they're done, spent the same as an Orange one. :h
