They're all terrible... The GY Marathon got good reviews, then terrible reviews. The GY Endurance same, good reviews, then terrible reviews. Buy three tires from a shop you trust, and just plan to replace them regularly.

I have Goodyear Endurance tires on my RV. Where can I read some of the terrible reviews so I can make a better informed decision when I need to replace them?


Only negative ENDURANCE comment is their 1/4” tread depth. Maybe he can let us know more.

I've owned several sets of Maxxis tires when I had travel trailers. They were very good tires and received good reviews on the forums.

I have been running Maxxis 8008 on my work trailer for beter part of 12 years, they get replaced about every 2 years, from wearing out due to spinning and turning tight.

Go to Discount Tire and tell them to price GY ENDURANCE in your size and load range. Weight wise if you are on the edge I would go up in load range. Example "D" to "E".

The ENDURANCE has been on the market for over 3 years now and not a single tire failure that was the tires fault. Oh if it matters to you they are Made in USA unlike most trailer tires that are made in Communist China!!!

I agree with you. I had a tire blow that was 4 yr manufacture date and 3 yr on trailer. It separated just before the filling station. It was a GY Marathon. Bought one GY Endurance 10 ply next day to keep moving. 3 more before this trailer hits the road again.

Towing both a trailer and boat over the better part of 40 years now...........trust me, I have run the gauntlet of tires, I have had them all!!!!

I am a firm believer, get the best, tires are your only contact with the ground, that seems important to me.

I have run mostly Goodyear tires for the last 20+ years, the only issues were with the Chinese made Marathons many, many years ago.

Currently running Goodyear Endurance Radials, have 8 of them! Do yourself a favor..........Buy yourself a set and call it a day!

How the heck can you guys make any recommendation without knowing tire size? I am guessing that being a hybrid that OP has 13 or 14" tires. Ain't no such thing as a E rated 13,or 14 nor an "LT".
Before our trip I bought 13" Load Star Bias from E-trailer. Yep china bombs. This is a "D" rated tire good to 80MPH at 65 lbs.
We hauled 17,000 miles, freeways,two lanes, dirt, and no road at all, and everything in between.
Not a hint of a problem.

Bias rode rougher than radials, but the sidewall were much much stiffer. Gave me more confidence against rock and curb scrubs.

"How the heck can you guys make any recommendation without knowing tire size? I am guessing that being a hybrid that OP has 13 or 14" tires."

Let's do some math with the OP's info provided. 3,200# TT so lets add 800# of "STUFF" that's 4,000# now take 10% off for tongue weight that's 3,600#. It's a single axle trailer so each tire will be carrying 1,800#.

Chart shows two 14" "D" tires, one a @ 2,040# @ 65psi and 2,200# @ 65psi.

If he has 13's I would change to 14's.

Just put on the other 3 GY Endurance tires the other day. I saw that inventory was starting to get back ordered. I didn't want to take chances for my ride back South with out them.
