Goodyear G614

Has anyone bought the G614 for their 16" OEM rims for a Pinnacle or other model? If so, what size? They don't seem to come in 255. The Endurance new only has 8/32 tread depth. After 12,000 miles I only have 3/32 left. The G614 comes with 12/32 tread depth which I imagine would last longer.

I had the Service Center install them on.our 2015 38 FLSA when they did the crack repair. They only do a 235 if I remember correctly.

EDIT The ENDURANCE does have a higher load range even though the 614 is a G instead of an E

Before I put new tires on after only 12K I would look at the brakes and alignment. I think you have a problem and you are wearing them out.

Most people I know or hear from never "wear out" trailer tires, they just get to old to be safe.

I had the brakes checked and cleaned this past November and they are in very good condition. If there was an alignment problem I would think there would be signs of uneven wear but all four of them are wearing perfectly even across the tread.

I installed LT235/85R16 G614's on my rig in 2013. Never had any problems with them, They still look good, no cracks. I bought 5 and the spare has never been on the ground. I run them at 100 lbs on the same rims that came on my rig, rated for 110 psi.

They have never lost any air other than changes in temp from seasons.

What is the price difference between the G614 tire and the Endurance tire?

Looks like about a hundred bucks, each.

Does anyone know what inflation rating the wheels have?

I recall looking at the G6xx tires also a few years ago. I wanted to get the china bombs off my Northpoint before something happened. I remember calling the wheel manufacturer and was told the 8 lug wheels are good for G rated load weights and the higher psi. She said they dont make 2 different wheels, one for E tires and one for G tires.
I ended up getting 5 Goodyear Endurance E tires and bought a matching spare wheel.

I’ve got the G614 on my rig and have been satisfied with them. I run 80 psi in them because at 100 psi I felt it was too much for the camper. Not sure of the sidewall ply but they are stiff to say the least. Hardly any squat at all. And they’re regrooveable but I never hear of anyone doing that anymore.

Looking for a set of G614's right now to replace my current set. They are hardly worn, but have been in service for too long for comfort by me.

My G614's were installed in April 2013 and towed 12,000 miles to date. How much longer are you going to run yours? I'm looking for a new set now, but even Good Year doesn't have any.

No one mentioned sailuns. Less expensive than Goodyears and just as good. Simple Tire has them with free shipping. These rigs are too heavy for E rated tires.

At least another year.

After doing some more research, I decided to stay with the Goodyear Endurance. Like Grumpy said, they have a 330# higher load rating for a total of 1,320#. The G614 are not available in the 255 size, just 235 which is almost 3" smaller in diameter.

I contacted Tredit to get specs on my wheels because Jayco didn't know........they told me they would have to reach out to Tredit......pare for the course! I called Tredit directly. They are their A411 series, 16" X 7" with a capacity of 4,400# and a psi of 110. However, to achieve that psi who need to change the partial metal stems to full metal stems.

If you Google Goodyear Rv tires customer complaints, you Ďll never want to put them on your rig. I only used Michelinís or top brands. Donít let the price come in the way of safety.

It's hard to find bad reviews on the Endurance. Can you post a link? What Michelin tire are you putting on your TT?

The "OLD" GOODYEAR trailer tires were imports the ENDURANCE are now made in the US, you may also be looking at MH tires since MICHELIN doesn't make trailer tires.
