Good Year tires

Anyone have any feedback on the quality of the Goodyear 85R16 load range G tires that come with the new Cedar Creek fifth wheels? We are ordering our new unit and if the tires are junk I will negotiate some different tires on our new unit.

I have never been a fan of GoodYear tires. Just not up to the competition. What wheel size are they?? Personally on the newer large fivers I would either have or get installed 17.5 inch wheels and tires. Far higher load ratings than any of the 16 inch offerings.

The GoodYear 614 tire is up to the task. With your tire size you have only one mfg to go with and thats GoodYear, other than the china tires no other company makes the size you have. I replaced all of my china tires this spring with the GoodYear 614. What a differance in the tires the GoodYear was just an all around stronger tire. If you do not like GoodYear you will need to go with a different rim size to increase your tire selection. If you stay with the tire make sure the tire age as new as possible. I my self would not get a new tire more the 3 or 4 months old.
