Yeah... most of the current 16" G rated tire brands are made for the service trailer industry. Most are commercial grade all steel ply carcass tires and have became popular with rv trailer owners looking for a long trouble free service tire on 7k-8k axles. Their good for 60k-80k miles depending depending on type of use.

Maybe further state the fact that since their introduction they have had ZERO reported non road hazard failures.

Tread may be thin but mine are dated 2017 and have around 20k and they may have lost 1/16" of the tread. Rubber compound plays a HUGE part in how long a tire lasts.


As previously posted I recently had two of them throw tread. Tire Rack would not warranty them, but Goodyear did. And quite fairly. I replaced them again with Endurance because I don't know of anything better. At least not small enough to fit my car hauler. Wish I could run 16's and get a lot more options. But I'd have to raise my fenders and maybe separate my axles a bit. Too much work.

That is still nothing for four years on the market.

Zero reported non road hazard failures? Reported to where? Here or some other internet forum?. I had two that developed bubbles in the sidewalls which I don't think were caused by road hazards, and didn't report them to anyone other than the tire shop where they were purchased, which replaced them.

The key word here is reported , sure there has been non road hazard failures , and they don't know this forum exists .
