Can anyone who has goodyear g614s see if they are wearing like the photos show. They are 5 years old and not sure why they have these ridges on the inside and outside treads. Have a lot of trips planned this summer and want to be careful.
Thanks

IMO , and the history of the G614 , I wouldn't want to push them much further. Some will have differing opinions, but can't escape the reputation of the G614. 5 years on that tire, and although I didn't try to get into that link, I have heard heard of unusual wear on the G614 , its been a common complaint .

A Sailun thread on this forum that was recently shut down, has a picture of a lot newer G614 with a blowout, take a look.

5yrs old by the code on the tires? or the age of the RV?
Either way, at 5 years you are nearing the end of their time. 5 years is all I look for from tires and i believe most others will agree, especially if you are looking at an active season with some heavier/longer hauls.

Thats a common complaint about those G614's . There was a thread awhile back about guys complaining on the Montana Forum about wear like that on their G614's . Looks like nothing has changed with those Goodyears. 5 years ,and that wear its time for Sailuns. [emoticon]

Not sure what they came up with, its been awhile, but I am pretty sure it was inflation .

What is weight on axles?
What air pressure have you been running tires at?
What type of suspension......leaf springs/torsion axles?
If leaf springs are bushing plastic/OEM or replaced with aftermarket upgrades?


5 yrs per tire date code.
New tires while you have time/at home........why mess around out of road during one of your trips


Is it time for your medication or mine?

It came down to inflation over on the Montana forum, but as said don't remember the solution.

Thats the first thing Sailun rep asked me on the Sailun tire that I lost, was how was the wear, he said when they start wearing unusual, it usually over inflation . My Sailuns have worn very evenly, although they are over inflated according to the inflation chart he sent me .

HE told me as long as I like the ride of the fifth wheel, and no unusual wear it was okay to run the 100 psi.

They look like my new ones tread wise. 5 years is about time to replace.

Five years is when my Goodyear blowed up. And it wasn’t the sidewall shredded failure but a single bullet hole blowout.

I HAD a set of G614's that showed that exact sign.... the folks at Goodyear called it "Shoulder Step" and considered it normal wear...

I dropped them and put on a set of Goodyear G114, H rated...

Mine are four years old now and look perfect, I have the whole set-up looked at yearly by my tire place and their take is as long as the tires aren't showing age/weather cracking or wear they are good-to-go so would they not still be viable after five years?
