Yes, except my GY Marathons both failed at the sidewalls instead of the tread. Total separation of the wall from the core just sitting there. Chunk of sidewall laying on the ground beside the tire, about the size of a softball, and core split where the sidewall came off. No more Marathons for me.

Thats why I replaced all four goodyear marathons on my 5er right after I bought it.

This may be a stupid question, but I bought the camper 16 months ago, is there any warranty on the tires.

Depends on who made them. I would take them to a authorized tire dealer and you may be able to get some type of adjustment.

My experience is they want to adjust them with the same brand tire.

Yes, there is warranty. They measure the tread that is left and prorate the new tire. You basically pay for that part of the tire that you used. I had two GY marathons that were prorated and these tires were about seven years old. I felt like I got a fair deal in the adjusted price.

Good choice. I think you will not regret the decision. As for the Marathons for sale, well. . . . . they would fit my rig, but, no offense, but no thanks.
