"now 1/3 the price of G614, that are now going for near $500 per tire"

I have heard of rounding up but that is a bit much as they sell everyday on AMAZON for $425.

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


Again they are Goodyears, and I'm just not impressed by Goodyear. And they are over priced as well. the MAXXIS cost less and are better.

I am trying out a set of TurnPike st2500 14 ply steel belted tires recommended by my tire guy. Company makes mostly commercial trailer tires. Great tread and so far very happy with them. Paid $675.00 mounted and balanced.

You don’t get it. Goodyear, Michelin, Toyo, Cooper and the like put their name loud n proud on their tires unlike these off brand tires.
