Goodyear Marathon Radial Trailer tires

I have a 2010 Jayco Jayflight G2 31RKS with these Goodyear Marathon Radial tires (ST 225/75R15). The unit has been on the road probably less than 5,000 miles in the year and a half we have owned it and I just noticed a bubble on one of the sidewalls that looks like a elongated blister. Anyone experience any problem like this. Gonna have to change this tire out.

I had 6 Goodyear Marathon ST 225 75 15 load range D tire failures. Several sound like what you describe.

I now run Maxxis Load range E. no problems since!

Take it to Goodyear authorized dealer and they will likely adjust it for another. Keep an eye on all of them until you decide to replace with another brand.

Thanks for all your responses. I will definitely go to goodyear for a replacement but it does sound like there possibly needs to be a recall on these tires. Maybe we all should write to NHTSA and file a complaint.

Folks, with all the complaints about the Goodyear Marathon trailer tire on this site, it is amazing that no one has filed a complaint. I just looked on the NHTSA website and there is only one complaint. With all the complaints I am seeing at different web sites, we need to be reporting these issues. There must be a problem with these tires. If anyone wants to file a complaint which is what I'm doing now, here is the link.

They are probably made in China. I ditched my Goodyears for Maxxis 2 years ago.

You are correct on them being made in China. My Goodyears that went bad were on another 5th W. but I'll run these one on the jayco tell they need replaced.
