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.

I am fairly sure they have a five year warranty and that means all made are under warranty.

Ahhhhhhhh.....as long as there are RVs, there will be tire debates.

Re Chinese "bombs": In 2013, we bought a Winnebago Minnie travel trailer and I kept the original Chinese tires on it for about a year (can't remember their product name). But, then we were about to take a long trip out west (Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier NP, Little Big Horn, Devil's Tower and SD Badlands), so for peace of mind, I replaced the tires with Maxxis tires. I had owned popups with Maxxis tires and they served us well.

If I were purchasing a rig that had tires that weren't manufactured by a reputable well know brand, I would look to replace them just for my own peace of mind.

Maxxis or Goodyear Endurance? With the Endurance tires being out for quite awhile, I don't think I would hesitate to go with them, but I would still consider Maxxis tires.

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.

Exactly my thoughts when I checked the tire pressures after the long storage.

Got a new RV with factory installed Made in China tires with unknown brand.

I figure I'll have it replaced after a year.

But to my pleasant surprise, after a thousand miles and 5 months in deep winter storage, the air pressure on it has held up.

Well, maybe in another year or two?[emoticon]


Im still runing mine 5 years later only replaced one as I saw a sign of a broken belt last spring. my previous trailer I had 10 years and only changed one in that whole time, which in hind thought, I was probably gambling at that length of time. but realy if you check them out before each trip and keep on top of it, in most cases you will be fine, aside from road hazards which no tire is good against.

My timeline is more like 3 years -- or earlier once I see signs of losing tire pressure, bulges or scrapes and/or uneven wear.

ya Im about the same with out the time. I just go by condition of the tires and replace as nessasary. I guess if we hade the cheep prices like the US does on tires I wouldnt worry about changing out perfectly good tires, but at about 250 a tire to get close to a sailune and 300 to get into goodyear and such. I can just keep going by paying atention to what my tires are telling me.
