Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
I'm some what disappointed in this tire. Great in just about all the categories except for highway. As soon as I had these tires put on I get this strange rumble feel in the truck at 65mph and higher. It's not your regular shimming that you would get if the tire was out of balance. Didn't have this issue with my previous set of tire. ( Yokohama ) Had them balanced twice where I purchased them and also balanced them at Toyota on two different occasions. No Luck. Thought if I broke them in a few miles it would get better. No luck there either. I use to love driving my truck on the highway but no more. My other choice would have been the Michelin Energy Saver A/S. Should gone with those. My wife needed tires on her RAV4 so I went with the Michelins's. About the same in all the categories like the Goodyears minus the snow & ice ( to warm, just got them put on 2 weeks ago ) and what a difference on the highway. Such a smooth ride. I miss that on my truck. I question myself, maybe I have an issue on my front end? So I swopped all 4 wheels from my wife's truck and put them on my truck and my wheels on hers to see if it was truly the tires giving me this grief. I took my truck for run on the highway. Low and behold the rumble sensation was gone. Drove my wife's truck the following day on the highway and yes I felt the rumble sensation in her truck. So I called Goodyear and they said they could not give me a pro rated refund but they would give me a new set of tires. I thought maybe I had a bad batch. So I got them put on and went on the Highway and the same results. The ruble feel. I guess I'm stuck these tires. In all my years of buying new tires, I never had such a strange issue before. I was so looking forward to these tires because of the great reviews. I'll see if I can stay with them for a short time or as much as I can tolerate this sub-par ride on the highway before I get a set of the Michelins. Goodyear tires, NEVER AGAIN.
