future owners of A RL38

My wife and I are looking at used Redwoods , I would like to know what owners think about the Goodyear G614's one of the units we are looking at has about 10000 miles on it and the date codes are 1014 ( March of 2014) should I be looking at replaceing these if they still don't show signs of cracking. I will take a very close look in the tread area once we are the owners but at this point I am looking at cost of ownership . Are the 614's enough or should I consider 17.5" tire and wheels upgrades? we are looking at 38RL models. 7000lb axels

Thanks M$M

Welcome to the forum.

I have about 30k miles on mine and don't intend to change them soon. They look good. Also without cracks.

The 614s are more than enough for 7K Axles and shoulld be good for another year or two based on that date code. But you won't really know until you get one home, load it up as you would for a long trip and hit the scales, that will give you the REAL answer.

Mine had 60k+/- on them when I upgraded to 17.5" without any issues.
When you're ready to upgrade to 17.5 " Hs contact Ron aka Titan Guy on this forum for good deals. He can also do the disc brake upgrade.

We took ownership of a new to us 2015 38RL , It in good shape and we hope to get on the road in the spring for a few one week trips over the summer. Niagara Falls is on my wife's short list but time will tell .
