Goodyear G614

Thinking of changing my tires to the G614's on my Blue Ridge 3710 BH. Has anyone done this?

Those would be a great choice. I installed Michelins on my 3025. I will be, and suggest you do as well, installing the Lippert wet bolt kit.

I didn't go to these tires, but I did consider them.

Make sure your rims support the 110psi.

Check the outer diameter of your tire vs. the G614 and that you have enough space between the tires.

You might also consider a Sailun tire in the same size (235/80/16). It's getting good reviews and is less expensive than the G614.

Just curious, what brand came on your Blue Ridge?

I'm also considering going to a G tire. My problem is that my rims are 80 psi rims, and it's hard to find 16 x 6.5 rims in a 6 lug pattern. Most of the high pressure rims are 8 lug.
However I think I've found some at etrailer that will work. I'm still researching.
Amazon did have the G614 tires for $272 each, but they are now over $300. Simpletire.com has them for $272 plus $23 shipping, so after buying high pressure valve stems, you're at $300 per tire plus mounting and balance, which usually runs $20 - $30 per tire. So, a set will run aprox $1300. Just wherever you buy them, check the date of manufacture, just to make sure they aren't 3 years old at install. Tire suppliers like to get rid of old stock. We don't want to start out with old but new tires.

How do you find out if your rims are rated to handle the extra PSI of G tires? Is it stamped on the rim?

The rims which came on my Vengeance had it stamped on the back. It states max. load of 3750 lbs. and in another place, it says 110 PSI. Sometimes they stamp them inside the wheel so the tire would have to be removed to see it.

I love the peace of mind my G614s give me. I had the dreadful Towmax blowout and camper damage years ago. Never want to do that again.

I think these are a fairly common FR wheel. Maybe you have the same?

Goodyear G614

I sure hope so. I had a blowout yesterday. Ruined my daddy-daughter campout. It completely tore up my fenders and the wheel well. So it would give me a big peace of mind if I could go to G rated tires. If I didn't have to buy new rims, that's a big plus!
Nice FW!
