When it was time to replace my motorhome’s tires in 2007, I had been so satisfied with the Goodyear G670 tires I’d been riding on there was little doubt I wanted that brand again. But with my legal assistant background, I’m a research fanatic, so I looked up what others were saying in RV forums and motorhome related websites. Links to some of those are included below in “Reviews and Info.”
As a solo woman RVer, having tires I can trust is a must! I’m also so thankful Goodyear decided to sponsor my 2007 Blue Ridge Parkway tour by providing the new tires I needed at that time!
In 2011, before I took off for a summer in Michigan, I had the tires inspected and the air pressure checked by a truck service station. The next time I checked the pressure while at a friend’s machine shop, I couldn’t get a reading from one of the inside tires. He wound up taking it off and discovered the stem had come loose and the tire was virtually flat.
I have no idea how long I drove with that flat tire and the other tire taking all the weight (without me even feeling it or without a blowout), but if I needed any further convincing about the safety and quality of Goodyear tires, I definitely don’t now!

Gypsy Journal: New Tires & Batteries: Reknown RVer Nick Russell blog post about his choice: I have been shopping for tires and batteries for our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage, and had narrowed the tire choices down to the Michelin X7A3 and the Goodyear G670 RV. In my opinion, there really isn’t any real difference in quality between the two, and I have had a lot of RVers recommend both tires. In the end, I chose the Goodyear tires, even though the price for all six, mounted, balanced, and out the door, was $200 more. My reasons may not make sense to a lot of people, but Goodyear is an American company, as opposed to Michelin, a French outfit.
TireRack.com: RE: Goodyear G670RV – “The tires have performed better than expected and I seldom need to add air to the tires. After 10 years they show no visible sign of deterioration…”
