TIRES....Let's talk tires

Greetings...I have a 2012 36RL with the original factory Goodyear Marathon ST235/80R16 E load rated POJs (pieces of junk). I had a blowout and tore up some stuff. I want to put a set of good tires on with the highest load rating without going to 17.5in rims/tires. Any recommendations???

Hope this helps (having gone through that with the Marathons)

Save your tire carcass, take pictures and make notes...

Call or send an email to :
Property Damage Claims Team
Attention Dept. 805
200 Innovation Way
Akron, OH 44316
800-322-4682 (phone)
888-307-1920 (fax)
pdct@goodyear.com (e-mail)

They paid for the damages and replacement tire...
doesn't pay for the inconvenience, etc... but makes it easier to swallow !
good luck !

So far (knock on wood) the G614's have worked out well, but I'm a part timer at best...

I just went through the same thing. Replaced all of mine with updated tires and wheels. More than likely your wheels won't be able to support a higher load tire. Some pictures in the Photos section of mine. N/m pictures are no longer there. Here is the info on what I got to replace them with - LT235/85R16 LRG 14 PR Goodyear G614 RST Radial Tire on 16" 6 Lug Series 09 Black HD Aluminum Trailer Wheel. TrailerTiresandwheels.com.

Radio Flyer, ( Skip )
Pretty sure the 7,000 and 8,000 axles are all 8 lug not 6. We just replaced our old Goodyear G614's with new Goodyear G614's. Had them balanced at the same time. Love them and their rating is like 3,750 lbs per tire.

Chris, Glad you caught that, don't want to put out there bad info. Fat fingered it. They are 8 lug not 6. My original wheels would only allow me to inflate the G614s to roughly 80lbs. That is why I went with new wheels. My unit came with the Marathons and under rated wheels.

I think my G614's are inflated to 110 psi. We met a gentleman at Gulf Shores State Park in Alabama during december who had f rated tires from the factory on his 36rl. Needless to say he had a blowout that took out his entire kitchen slide out skirt metal. Didn't look very pretty having that big piece missing. And with the dishwasher, washer/dryer combo and 6500 watt geny in our unit I know we are heavy also.

My take is; if you have to buy new wheels before you can upgrade to the G614s, you might as well just move up to the 17.5" wheels and GY 114s and put 99% of you tire worries to rest.

No specific advantage of the T02 over the T09 other than preference on style. They are both exactly the same size and have the same 3,750 lb rating for the G614 and probably the same price. They were both used by Redwood as I recently found out.

Your T03 are only rated to 3,580 lbs.
