Goodyear Tire Sale

The summer sale flyer form Camping World came yesterday.

They have Goodyear G670 RV (225/70R19.5 F) tires on sale for $399.99 - $464 installed. How does their price compare? Any comments on that tire or Goodyear RV tires in general.

Looks like they also have a "Up to $30 instant rebate on every Goodyear RV Tire")

Also seems to be a pretty good deal on Dometic who is listed and the sponsor of the sale.

I believe that the "issues" Goodyear had are now history.
There is no denying that there was "something" that went wrong in the Chinese plant but whatever it was I believe it has been fixed.
I'm leaving the marathons on out trailer!

I'm on my second set of GYM tires. The first were made in Canada, and the second in the US. During the past seven years, I've been all over the US and Canada pulling a single axle trailer with no tire problems.

When I bought my trailer in January it came with GYMs. They had many thousands of miles on them. Still had plenty of tread and no cracks. The only reason I bought new ones was the old ones were 8 years old. So far very happy with the new Goodyears.

First of all, I don't trust Camping World, I don't deal with them after shoddy work was on our coach. Secondly, I just had my local Goodyear dealer install six 8R195 G647 RSS tires for me and the price was $416.00 each. There was a cost for new valve stems and balancing, though. Anyone know the difference between my tire type and the ones mentioned by the OP?

The G670 is a RV designed tire with compounds to prevent weather and UV deterioration. It is not sold in a 8R19.5 size which is designed for a 6" rim width. The 225/70R19.5 is designed for a 6.75" rim width.

The G647 is available in a 8R19.5 size and is mud and snow rated. Our original rims are 6" wide.

I got a great deal from Camping World on the tires but I carried them out and mounted them myself because CW's mounting fees were outrageous and totally wiped out the savings on the tire cost.

Cheers, Dan

Bingo! The other thing many have posted about, is why buy top-end tires if you're not going to put many miles on her in the next five years?

Best deal I found on 6 Goodyear G670 RV is at Big O for about $2600. Cheapest I found was about $1600 for 6 Asian tires. Cant remember the brand but it sounded like Sukiakis.

Most of the negative feedback on the Chinese and Korean tires seemed to be based more on opinion and bias more than fact. I'm really tempted to save the money but think I'll buy American (or Canadian). Service on the road might be better with the Goodyears. They will probably be the only tires I'll ever buy for it barring any problems. Just hope there is $1000 more "quality" in the GYs.

When I was still working and put low miles on Bess, the Toyo tires were great.

I'm hoping this set of tires will see Alaska in the next year or two. We've put 10K on it since buying it last July.

10k is decent mileage, about what we put on every couple of years. I'd buy the best, in that case, and I like Goodyear. Keeping the outside tires sealed has helped a lot for me.
