Same problem

I just replaced a Good Year Marathon with the same problem three weeks ago. I also replaced one at the rally last year with the same problem.

Would definitely get good double lip seals and use the zerks as instructed by the mfgr and DO NOT get rambunctious with the grease gun. SLOW AND EASY DOES IT!

So they're good for a 5 or 10k maybe, but questionable on a full marathon!

Did Goodyear replace them or did you have to pay for them?

and we also use the Truck Systems Technologies TPS system.
I'll take a look at those, thanks. I hadn't heard of these before. I'm also trying to decide whether to take a chance with Goodyear again since I already have two new ones, or to chunk all of them and switch to another brand.

Well they are made in China, so I guess that's fitting.
