He speaks the truth,unfortunately I haven't seen a trailer tire that doesn't seperate. They all are made in China so maybe that's why. The g614$ are actually an LT tire but are constructed strong enough to support the loads that a trailer tire can handle. The 614$ are made in America but are very pricey but worth it I'm sure. Notice I used a $ instead of an S on the 614$?

The 614s are the only tire where Goodyear will pay for some of the damage in the event of a blowout.

Just save the carcass.

A friend on another forum got $2k from Goodyear after he had a blowout running the 614s.

They are worth the money.

Since you have a 365bhs there's no one better to ask, do you have any clearance issues with the 235 85 16's? They are close to 1 " taller than the 235 80 16 marathons.

Also,what is your TV?
Unless GY has changed their specs, the Marathon ST235/80-R16E and the G614 both have a outside diameter of 30.7". On my Designer they look exactly the same with the same spacing between the tires as the Marathons. I have the T02 wheels also so I was lucky there.

I got some reimbursement from them on Marathons in one instance where I had damage.

They stand behind the tire if it separates to,only problem is they replace them with the same tire.

You're my new best friend! Lol, I have a 2012 f250 bagged and run 50 psi also. Haven't gotten to hit the road yet though other than a short haul to the scales. Have you weighed yours? And what size wheels to you have on your f250?
I took my toolbox and tailgate off of my truck and weighed in at 21000 even. 6140 on my tv rear axle with a full tank of fuel and 1 empty lp bottle

LOL... great minds think alike.

I've never weighed my setup.
Tires are still the OEMs .... 48k miles.

17" 18" or 20" wheels on your 250? I have 17's but they're only rated at 3200lbs each. I'd like to get a set of 20's because they're rated around 3600 lbs each

Give some consideration to the 17.5" upgrade. Lots of threads here regarding this upgrade.
