Tires (again)

One of my Goodyear Marathons blew the other day so I'm getting new tires. I have a 2016 Cardinal 3875FB. I have a chance, if I wait a week, to get Sailun tires with 14 ply and a G rating. If I go with what's in stock I can get E rated 10 ply TowMax or the 10 ply E rated version of Sailuns. Advice?

Also Goodyear hasn't committed to cover the repair to my rear quarter panel and fender skirt yet. Has anyone gotten than to do so for you? Any advice on how to get them to stand up for the repair? TIA

Really sorry to hear that happened to you. Just reinforces in my own mind that I made a good decision adding the G-rated tire upgrade when I placed my order. Just curious, did you have them aired up to proper inflation?


Our 3850RL is getting delivered in just 2 short days(that will seem like forever).

Inflated properly and not overloaded, driving on out 60 mph. I found I cannot get the Sailun or Michelin G rated tires so if I want G rated I have to get Goodyear G116 14 ply. Anyone have experience with those?

You can order the Sailun tires online and have them shipped to you. Check simpletire.com and see if they have what you want in stock.
If there is a Discount tire near you they can order them for you as well.

Was your tire a sidewall Run Low Flex Failure or a Tead Separation. Different failures with different causes need different solutions.
Did you read the thread "Why Tires Fail?"

Good year will not cover any damage, they will say either you where under inflated or anything else. Good year used to be good, NOT ANY MORE. I had 3 belts blow in 4 tires about 31/2 years old. I would wait if you can... Good luck.. Marathons IMO are garbage since they moved the production offshore 4 years ago. They will blame you for hitting potholes and curbing and anything else they can think of. PS: not the same tire size but still GY.

OK the young man was inexperienced enough to tell me I could use Goodyear G611s on my Cardinal but it turns out he was misquoting and there is no such thing as a G611. Sailuns on national back order. TowMax (E rated) seems to invite the same problems as I had with the Marathons.

I have a flange sticking out at the front left that most likely hinder the clearance on the G614s but they say they can move the flange out of the way and make the G614s work. Guess I'll know on Friday. I have a replacement Marathon ordered in case it all doesn't work out.

Any other advice or opinion is welcome.
Thanks

Tread separation. Checked the pressures before I got on the road that morning, right at 80 psi.

Went to G614's last year after a Marathon blowout. Just check your wheels to make sure they are capable of handling the G614's 110 psi requirement. Mine were stamped/cast on the inside "Max PSI 110". I now feel much better.

P.S. I also purchased a TPMS to monitor psi & temps.👍

OK any chance you can post or send a picture?
Did you file complaint with NHTSA?
