Goodyear RV tire warning...

Just saw this posting about Goodyear RV tires. Passing it along. Not the Endurance tire many of us are having good luck with on our TT's. But, looks like Class A,B,C motor homes could be affected with older models if they have these tires. https://camperreport.com/avoid-goodyear-rv-tires/

Hi

As mentioned in that article, 5 to 7 years is sorta /kinda the life of a tire. Last one of these shipped out in 2015. Even if they are the best of the best, it's time to replace them. If the date on your tires is pre 2012, I'd say they are *way* past their use by date. No idea how many went out before then vs after.

Did you look at the picture in the post? Marabomb..I did not know that many folks were running ST tires on an Motorhome RV?

Hi

At least when I looked at it there was one picture. It showed a tire on an RV. The type of tire and type of RV both were impossible to determine from that picture. Past that, it was all text and piles of adds.

Indeed 40,000 of these (even at 4 / 6 /8 / 10 per vehicle) adds up to a lot of RV's. Spread that out over 20 years though and it might not be very many a year.
