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?


Six years seems to be the limit on these RV tires . Although most never wear them out, they age out. The G614 are no exception.

I ran mine six years, got them off there ,and went to Sailuns

Nope. Sitting at a stop sign after a fifteen minute drive.

Tire guy thought it was mfg defect where there was an air pocket in the belt layer and the steel rusts out over time and creates a weak spot.

The tires are wearing like that because you have an alignment issue. take it to an axle shop and have the wheel alignment checked.

They are either towed out or cambered in at the top causing the wear on the inside of the tire.

I think that's a bit of jumping to conclusions when the only thing you've seen is a badly taken photo. You can't base anything on the smooth tread that's visible because that is supposed to look like that.

Normal wear for these tires, had two sets do exact same wear pattern, always run at 110 psi.

Switched from US GY "E" to the mentioned GY "G" tires, I ran 85psi for thousands of miles with no unusual edge wear. Tires wore evenly and rode well.

thanks all for the replies, ordering new ones now, They have 20K on them and are five years old. They are on MORryde Independent Suspension system. Unfortunately my local Goodyear Rep doesn't return phone calls because I asked him for Manufacture dates on the tires he was going to order. Amazon actually has them $60 cheaper for each tire....

Thanks
