ST225/75R15 GoodyearŽ Marathon Radial

I have a ST225/75R15 GoodyearŽ Marathon Radial that the belt has either separated or slipped. I found it and replaced it with the spare before any incident occurred. The center tread on the tire is bulging and ruptured while the inside tread line is cupped and wearing irregular. I have a set of five, counting the spare, that that came on our 2011 Travel Trailer. The date code reads 2910. All the other tires look just fine. There is at least half of the tread depth remaining. Tires have no more than 10,000 miles on them. Am I OK to replace the defective one only and carry on business as usual or should I be weary of the remaining ones and replace them all?

Personally, I would replace both tires on the same side at the least. If funds allow, or the other side gives you a bad "gut feeling", replace the four on the ground, and leave the spare, which sounds like it's never been used.

I would take the defective tire to a authorized Goodyear dealer and they should either give you a new one or at a discounted price. I would also ask that the remaining Marathons be inspected for separation.

I believe in checking my tires at every fuel stop, and by so doing I have found at least two tires that had broken belts (not the same time). What I do is to squat down and get in line with the center of each tire and check it for roundness - the broken belts I found made the affected tire lumpy and out of round.

Replace all of them.

Maxxis are a great replacement tire!

2910 indicates that your tires were made the 29th week in 2010. That makes them 5 years old. I would replace all tires irrespective of tread left. In not, then the next ply separation is right around the corner.

I agree with replacing the tires, at least the 4 if funds are tight and keep the spare until you can repace it as well.

I also do a walk around at least every fuel stop that's how I found this one... I'd like to switch to LT tires but am having no luck with finding LT225/75R15. I'm really leaning towards the 225/75R15 Maxxis M8008 10ply (Load Range E).
