Goodyear G670 R.V. tires 245/70/19.5

Purchased these tires two years ago,even though they were expensive I figured it would be worth it for peace of mind.

After driving 5000 miles total on them we experienced a blowout on the driver's side front, at 60 mph on a two lane highway, no street lights or shoulder to pull off for 67 miles. The force of the tire failure threw us in the oncoming lane and it took about a quarter mile to horse it back over to our lane and get pulled off the road.

Luckily no oncoming traffic! Well I didn't think to keep the damaged tire when I had it replaced in Parker Az.so Goodyear was no help getting it prorated or anything. Next time I'll try Michilin's.Cheers!

Goodyear G670 Blowouts NEW
by: Ken in Mason

While traveling this July in a rented RV, had a double tire blowout on the right rear. The violence of the first tire blowing out and the belt/rubber slapping around the wheel well - apparently caused the second tire to deflate. Other than shattered nerves and a 3 hour delay while trying to find a service center that could offer road side assistance - we managed the rest of the trip. The Goodyear G670s - which were only a few years old based on the RV age and paperwork - unraveled. No road debris - just a bad tire. Luckily - traffic was light and other than some wild fishtailing we managed to get this under control. Beware of the 670.

Correction to last post. NEW
by: John Wahlen

The Michlens were the original tires on my 2005 motorhome that were replaced by the G670 245/70/19.5 RV tires in 1/2012. The first G670 blow out was 11/2014 and the other two in 2015.

Giving up on Goodyear tires. NEW
by: John Wahlen

I have had good experiences with Goodyear tires until a 1982 Jeep that came with Goodyear Wranglers. One of the Wrangler tires developed circumvental bead cracking. A local Goodyear dealer replaced it at no charge. Next I bought a 2005 Jeep new that came with Wranglers. I had noticed that in snow the traction was very poor. Then, one of the tires developed the cracking around the bead. None of these tires showed any age cracking. I have been satisfied with Gates, Kelly Springfield, Michlien, and Bridgstone. I still have the 2005 Jeep and I'm putting a set of Westlake all terrian on. Lastly, in 2012 I replaced the Michliens (good service just 7 years old) with Goodyear G670s from Camping World. Just over 2 years later, the left front tire had a side wall blow out while parked, lucky me. I had it replace with a Continental HSR truck tire by Pomps who did the service call. After that, we had two rear tires on opposite sides (daulies) have side wall blow outs. I then had the remaining Goodyears replaced with Continentals. I have Bilstien Gas Shocks and the ride is still smooth enough with the truck tires. Plus, they have a higher load rating and track better (stiffer sidewalls?). They also cost less. I think Goodyear owes me. Luck there wasn't an accident, only the bangs of the blow outs. No more Goodyears for me.

Junk Goodyear tires
by: Harvey

Recently experienced a blow out on the front drivers side tire at 60 MPH. The motorhome has 14,000 miles tire pressure, balance, rotation and alignment were performed on a regular basis.

Had the same experience on a travel trailer that had Goodyear Marathon Tires. I will never buy another vechicle that has Goodyear tires
