The GY ENDURANCE line of course.


Biggest problem with them, besides being so new, Is that they are Goodyear. I just don't care for Goodyear tires. Never in the last 50 years did I ever have good service from Goodyear. And yes I have had many Goodyears from the Goodyear Eagles, to the Wranglers. I will say the Wranglers were better than the Eagles.
Then of course there is the first traveltrailer tire blow out I ever had. Goodyear Marathons. So, Goodyear is not high on my list to buy.


“Besides being so new”. Is that the best you can do? Almost 5 years is not new. Maybe criticize the 8/32” thin tread.

Have you not been paying attention for the last couple years? [emoticon]


Why yes I have. and the last ST tires I bought were the best on the market. MAXXIS.

I realize that the new Endurance are supposed to be good. but they are still proving themselves. Their biggest problem is that they are made by GoodYear, and GoodYear sucks
I meant on this forum...one of Goodyear's head cheerleaders abides here. [emoticon] And B&W hitch too, but that part's okay. [emoticon]

Yes I am and for good reasons. You seem to be quiet on the Sailun topic these days. [emoticon]

If want to hear about Salun's my last set of 637's lasted 8 years.
I am now on my 2nd set.
I hear you guys touting Goodyear Endurance but what about the venerable GY G614.
Don't hear much about them anymore since Sailun entered the market.

Hey you never hear me criticize the Sailun tires as all I have ever said I am not a fan of buying Chinese tires when US Made are available.

Remember all I got a few years ago was "ENDURANCE has not been out long enough"

See below this coming January 30th they will have been on the market for 5 years, now all people can say to criticize them is the tread is too thin.

Around 07 the 16" GY "G" had some issues. Since they have been a good choice. The 17.5" GY "H" have been good overall. I will admit I have had a few issues that were taken care of with new tires. If these have the same Issue I will look elsewhere, probably the GY Commercial 17.5" Kmax.

AKRON, Ohio, Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tire to help carry their cargo with confidence. Millions of workers who haul equipment from job to job have echoed that desire.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (NASDAQ: GT) has answered that call with the new Endurance trailer tire, which was unveiled this week during Goodyear's 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.

I've been telling people about the issues with the Vietnam Sailuns lately. Not happy with that at all, but there are still some options when I need to buy. Hopefully my "G" rated Westlakes will last a couple years, but I'm not really optimistic about it. The Endurance won't cut it for me, not enough payload, and I absolutely refuse to pay the extortionate fees for the G614. I want to see the gun when I'm robbed. [emoticon] Maybe, much as I hate to say it, the new Carlisle "G" rated tire, which makes me shudder to even contemplate.

May want to read what I replied to and what I said. Never said the ENDURANCE offered a “G” rated tire.

I have Michelin XPS Ribs on my 5th wheel. They are currently 6 years old. Leaving for a 1000 mile trip today. Tires look great but I know they're getting old. Trailer is always stored in covered shaded area so no sun on tires unless on the road. Thinking 7 years is about when I should buy new.
