RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

Maybe further state the fact that since their introduction they have had ZERO reported non road hazard failures. Tread may be thin but mine are dated 2017 and have around 20k and they may have lost 1/16" of the tread. Rubber compound plays a HUGE part in how long a tire lasts. As previously posted I recently had two of them throw tread. Tire Rack would not warranty them, but Goodyear did. And quite fairly. I replaced them again with Endurance because I don't know of anything better. At least not small enough to fit my car hauler. Wish I could run 16's and get a lot more options. But I'd have to raise my fenders and maybe separate my axles a bit. Too much work.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

I am fairly sure they have a five year warranty and that means all made are under warranty. You're right. Six years actually...Replacement 1 yr then prorate thru 2/32 depth. I'll call Tire Rack and ***** at them. But the tires are still gone, so I don't expect much. Okay I called Tire Rack and they confirmed that they only offered warranty on tires sold after 2019. They are not Goodyear owned and do not have to honor the GY warranty. Then I called Goodyear who confirmed the above, but they opened a claim on my behalf and will try to help me. If the tires are already gone they may or may not get the claim approved. BTW, GY has suspended production of the Endurance and they are out of stock nearly everywhere. Customer Service said it's to put more production capacity into sudden All Terrain demand, but the Endurance will eventually come back...maybe 2022.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

Tire Rack is full of BS. You need to take the tires to a GY “OWNED” Store. Once you do so report back their response in writing please. I probably wasn't clear. There is a warranty on the Endurance, just not my tires. TireRack looked them up and said the purchase was too long ago. I might talk a GY store into doing something, but I'm remote/rural -- no GY store within 100 miles. Academic now -- they're in the local shop's landfill pile. Will bolt these on the trailer tonite and will have four 2020-build tires on the ground with two older tires on the spare rack. Any more problems and I'm done with trailer tires. I found some 3200lb LT Cooper Commercials that will fit, but I'll need 16" rims.

RE: Chinese RV tires... holding up!

I have looked for failures with no findings. If there have been someone would have posted it by now. Okay, here you go. I have two Endurances being replaced at the tire shop as I type. 225/75-15E, New 2019, approx 2000 miles, 10k GVW car hauler flatbed, loaded weight min 5000lbs, max 7000lbs, tire pressures 70psi (down from 80 because the tires are at only about 50% max load), appears to be full tread depth, no obvious wear. Failure mode: cracking in outermost groove (where sidewall meets tread) with tread lifting and exposing the steel belt. Tire Rack says no warranty. I'm installing new Endurances only because in frustration I know of nothing better. I don't think 16s will fit, but I'll be looking into it.
