Goodyear Endurance tires

Greetings
First post.
Looking to replace tires on my 2014 Avalanche 355rk. I have four successful years with Trail King tires. I do run a tire monitoring system. I would like to install GY G614 but price is extreme. Anyone have experience with the GY Endurance. I guess it replaced the Marathon.

You are comparing apples to oranges when you compare the Goodyear G614 to the Endurance line. The G614 is a Load Range G tire (not available in LRE or LRF) while the Endurance line is only available in Load Range D and E.

There is no "direct replacement size/load range" correlation between the two tire lines.

If your wheels are rated for LRG tires, put Sailun S637 tires on it. These are all steel ply tires that come in two sizes. ST235/85R16G and ST235/80R16G(to match the diameter of china bomb maypops LRE tires).

Not an issue with that one. Has a better tract record than the GY G614.

I have the GY Endurance load E. About 2000 miles so far. I like that I could put 80lbs and the higher speed rating. Its a nice cushion compared to 65lbs/65mph rating.

The Sailun S637 tire is as good as the GY G614 at way less cost. I’d buy them over GY any day if the week and take the wife out to dinner several times on the money saved. Made in a foreign country is not the issue. Except for Traier King tires. They are junk

The GY Endurance line-up includes a new - to the market - tire size. It's the ST255/85R16 LRG with a maximum load capacity of 4080# @ 80 PSI. However, IMO, it's not going to fit well in many of the existing Keystone wheelwells. The OD (33.1") may also hinder many applications. Also note that it's minimum rim width is 6.5".

It would help if you could provide:
Current complete tire size including the LR
Actual scale weight reading for the load on each tire
Vehicle Certification Label (aka Tire Placard) tire size & Inflation and GAWR

Abbot, you let Trailer King tires satisfy you for four years, why would you want to change? They can be had on most Craig's List for little or nothing taken right off new RV's. You did some research and learned that Sailun weren't for you because they are built in China. Dozens and dozens of experienced RV'ers on this site and many others go to bat every day for Sailun but you wipe that off the list because of China. I believe you need to return to Google and extend your research a little further.
