My experience with Goodyear Tire is they are very good at giving you adjustments on tires that are separated but not blown. I suspect it is to keep you in the Goodyear family. If you have damage due to a blowout, always keep the tire and take it to a Goodyear dealer authorized to file a claim.

I you want to exchange cash to apply to another brand tire, forget it!

I agree with most. I'd replace them all.

Can I expect to replace Maxxis tires every 5 years or so as well?

According to all I have read yes you should replace any ST tire brand after somewhere around 5 years. The problem is many of them never make it more then a year or two. The Maxxis seem to get very good reviews on these forums compared to many other brands. They are a bit pricier but........

Tires

If you do a little research you will find that 5 yrs or more on any RV tire it is time to change them out. Just asking for trouble if you don't. Been there done that!!!.

Thanks to all for your very helpful comments. I've read plenty of comments suggesting moving to an LT application rather than sticking with ST. Has any one considered using Firestone Transforce HT 225/75R16 in lieu of an ST application? If so, how did it go. I have a Firestone dealer in our neighborhood. These would we very easy to obtain and get serviced. Thanks again....

I don't have them but have two friends that run them on large fifth wheels in 16 in. LR E. They have received good service from them.

Replace all of them now. As said in another reply your tires are 5 years old, rubber deteriorate after time. I replaced my on my other trailer with MAXXIS 10 ply. Great tire and less problems then the Goodyear tires

tires

I have a 2011 Eagle with the lousy china tires. I replaced them with Carlisle E rated tires, still China tires, but the E rating makes a HUGE difference in the ride, and the tires don't squat like the old Goodyear. Too bad we can't buy trailer tires made in the USA

Good luck, yes replace them all! Safe Camping
