Goodyear G614RST Tires

Having tire problems on a 2009 34SATS Cedar Creek. Has anybody tried the Goodyear G rated 614RST tires? It came with LT235/85R16 LRE's, and I have blown 7 in three years.

The G614's are standard on my Creek.
I have a bit over 6k on them and no problems. I also use a TST 507 TPMS on the trailer. Would not leave home without one again.

Thanks Ducky. I'm going to put four on when I get it back from the repair shop. Looking now for a good place to buy them?

Try www.greatrvproducts.com. The owners name is Chip and he is an RV'er.
You can e-mail him at chip@greatrvproducts.com
He is very helpful and responsive. Last time I checked, his prices were the lowest as well. The 507 system is better for a 5th wheel application and I got the flow-thru sensors so I can nitrogen up without thrashing. Note: you must have metal (heavy duty) valve stems for these type sensors.

The G614RST came on my 2011 36re and no problems. Also the last road trip I drove over 5 hours straight and at one point I ran about 78 mph for a good 20 min. and averaged around 68mph the rest of the time. I have never had a blow out on this trailer. That said, I dont normally drive that fast. I was just trying to get the rig to the factory for repair at 7am in the morning.

I, Ducky, have the 36 CKTS w/ G614 tires. We logged almost 12K miles the first year without problems. That said, I am quite anal when it comes to monitoring & maintaining these tires. I use the TST 501 TPMS with additional sensors so I can monitor all 10 that are on the ground. I also invested in an N2 cyl, regulator & accessories for servicing. I won't argue about using N2, but after using N2 for 20 plus years I can't dismiss it's success rate in tires that take a whale of a lot of abuse (as in aircraft)

I'm about to retrofit to the 19.5" J rated Goodyears and will use the same TPMS & maintenance I've used with these tires.

Long story short, monitor & maintain is the secret. Know the capabilities, capacities & limitations and you can't go wrong!

Travel safe & enjoy the journey!

What size cylinder do you use? I carry a air compressor but I want to put the TPMS system that goes inside the tire, my Sterling has N in the tires now but I want to put N in the tires on truck. I may get a CC, DW does not like the camper we have, we spend to much time camping, at the dealer. We like the floorplan on ours but also like the CC 30RL floorplan.

I use the 40 Cu ft cylinder. Harbor Freight has a complete setup for much less than you'd pay @ the local welding supply. http://www.harborfreight.com/nitroge...ank-97061.html

One additional note, the on tire TPMS are subjected to repeated heat/cooling cycles that result in corrosion. This will more than likely cause the sensor failure.

Should read in tire, not on tire
