I put tow masters on mine because that is what was recommended by America's tire...@ about 80 dollars each. I get them rotated/checked each year. 3 years later, so far, so good.

The GY G614's were $340 each!

Good luck

BTW how do you strike a curb on the inside of the tire?
That's an amazing price that I'm not finding anything even remotely close to anything like that! The best pricing I've found on the marathons was about $162 but $75 for shipping 5 of them and then I'd still have to pay to have them mounted and balanced.

The Maxxis I found were $165 with free shipping and then I'd have to pay locally for mounting and balancing.

As for the inside of the tire- I had one occasion on the first day of ownership pulling into a gas station that had those triangle "only turn in from the right and only exit to the right" thingers (Sheetz in PA). But that was back in July 2012. Since then- the only other thing I've hit are potholes. My wife struck a curb just before Christmas- but again, outside and not inside.

I'm not sure if 1 tire is worth pursuing a warranty claim (I've been diligent about tire pressures since day 1) when I'd really prefer just to replace them with quality tires.

You might try Walmart (Biddeford,Maine) too. I bought 2 tires there when I parked overnight during Irene. That was a lot of wind & water, guess I paid for camping with the tires . I didn't even know they sold Goodyear Marathons.

Yeah- but that's over $700 for 5 tires plus you'll have to pay locally to mount and balance them.

Are you saying the Goodyear marathons are made by Carlisle.

Didn't see anywhere it says that GY Marathons are built by Carlisle.

If you buy 4 GY Marathons, you can use your original spare as it is. My experience was $1800 damage and $600+ for GY tires in Springfield, MO.
