Goodyear Tire Failure

Took one of the tires off to take in for warranty for a sidewall buldge. Taking it in today so a claim center can look at it. Only 3000 miles on it. Could not believe how tight the lug nuts were. Surprised they weren’t stripped. They were so tight from the factory. If the tire was flat and there wasn’t the friction from having the trailer weight on it against the ground, it would have been a problem to get the lug nuts off. As I do with every vehicle, I will take all the lug nuts off and put nickel never seize on the threads.
Still had to pay $67 plus $20 install, but the process was pretty straightforward and very hassle free. Being out of warranty due to time it was prorated by wear, you call Goodyear to get a claim number. Then you take it to a Goodyear approved center. What was strange is the local Goodyear dealer couldn’t do this and went to Discount Tire. When calling Goodyear, they can tell you where the closest claim center is to you.

Goodyear Endurance tires are crap. I replaced mine with Carlisle F rated tires. Much better tire. Had a blowout with Endurance on two year old tires with about 19k miles on it. Had bulges on the tires, was told that's normal. NOT!

Iíve had good luck with them for 6 years now on two FWís. Mine have had some bulges like that right off the shelf, but after thousands of miles, no issues.

Not in my opinion. Mine are 4 years old with almost 21,000 miles. Minimal wear and still look new. When they need replacing I will buy another set of GY Endurance tires.

I'm on my second set of Endurance tires. The only reason I put a new set on was we were going on a five week tour of the Southwest and I didn't want tire issues. The old ones still had a lot of life, no checkering on the sidewalls, held air well. They were 4 years old when I swapped them out.

I've had them on 3 trailers without issue. Goodyear told me the sidewall bulges are normal and where the belts overlap.

A Goodyear rep told me the same. Anyway, over 18000 miles and no problems. My next set will be Endurance.

Yes, that's correct.

Tire Rack has a good article that describes the sidewall indentations that are fairly common:

What are sidewall indentations?

I've put about 30K on Goodyear Endurance tires - all of them have one or two indentations - and they have performed very well. I have seen the indentations on other brands of trailer tires too.

X2 - 42,000+ miles in ~5 years with Endurance - replace every 3-4 years - zero problems

I understand your Endurence where the first tires on your TT.??!
Then I would like to know howmuch reserve they have to HAWR's and GVWR.
Can you give me the needed info
Of tires I know from picture AT 80 psi so E-load.
But what maxload or loadindex?
And the size please.

My suspicion is what I wrote already a few years ago, that since Endurance TT makers will again go to the edges of those maxloads in their choices of tires.

Endurences pressure/loadcapacity lists are yust an expansion of the old ST list, so at 65 psi fi maxload of D-load given, and calculated with old formula introduced in 1928 for diagonal tires.
So also give what pressure used and recomended.
