There is a term we have for what you are doing. It's called Peeing into the wind. I generally vote with my feet.

Good luck with your complaint.

I agree with Norty, it's pi$$ing in the wind.

When I had a rash of Goodyear Marathon failures several years ago, I filed an NHTSA complaint. Obviously, it did not stick since someone reported there was only one complaint showing on their website. Unless I was the only one.....

One reason more official complaints are not filed is that Goodyear has a good record of paying properly documented claims of damage that their tires cause.

That may be less expensive than making a great product.

My current rig came with LR-E Marathons from our favorite foreign country. As soon as they are 4 years old, assuming they last that long, they will be replaced with another brand.

On edit, I went and checked the site. There are 97 complaints for Goodyear including 22575R15, Marathon and Marathon ST.

Mine is probably one of those.

Obviously we ARE just PI$$ING in the wind.

If there are 97 complaints, imagine how many are NOT reported!

You are far more trusting of Goodyear than I.

If I get a new trailer that comes with Marathons, I probably will replace them in the first 12 months.

Well welcome to how the poor people live. I would love to replace them. Have had lots of bad experience with GY Marathon tires. I am resolved to monitor them closely by TPMS and regular inspection and try to get some life out of them.

My plan is to replace them with Maxxis when the time comes.

My Marathons will be replaced with G614's after I use them a little bit more. They are 2 1/2 years old as of right now and my plan is to replace them this time next year. I only move 4 times a year and I have TPMS and I NEVER tow faster than 60 so I'm hoping they will make it another 1,000 miles. I have an onboard air compressor and make absolutely positive they are inflated properly before every move.
