For a double axle, the price is $600 vs $1100, for a triple axle $1600 vs $940. Considering the quality seems to be about the same, with maybe a couple more isues with the Goodyear, it pretty much boils down to price.

Personally I'd rather spend the money to travel.

The extra cost for the GY simply boils down to an "insurance policy", since GY is willing, in many cases, to pay for damages caused by a blowout.

Yes, I've heard that. But I kind of look at the extra cost like I would a warranty that I would have to buy for a product. If I feel the product is good enough, I wouldn't buy a warranty, or extended warranty, but I might if I felt the quality of the product might necessitate some kind of backup protection.

Anyway, that's how I view the extra cost of Goodyear when the "insurance" references arise.

Simple tire Sailun $202 ea and GY $292.

I have plenty of money so I am more than happy to spend the difference.[emoticon]

Also keeping my fellow Americans working.

I elected to go with American made GY tires over the Chinese tires. Rather see Americans with jobs.

Seems odd coming from those owning a made in Mexico truck.

Or a truck made in Canada.

Or a truck with a engine made in Mexico.

What country did those materials in the G614 come from.

I based the prices I quoted on Simple Tire prices of $157 for the Sailun S637 and $282 for the Goodyear G614,
