    Goodyear wont replace my tires after 17,000 miles because I plow snow.

    I wasn't told this when I paid the $714 dollar bill for my 245-75-16 10 ply tires . I was told 60,000 miles your good to go . any help ?

    Mine are doing the same, but just the 2 on the rear. I rotate them and have not spun them. Mine have about 13K on them and are showing excessive wear as well. They told me I have only a 50K warranty. If they give me any shyt, I will be calling every supervisor and manager at Goodyear to biatch

    yep , I don't spin them, I have a plow, salter , & dump bed in a 94 Chevy 5.7 . If you've owned one you know they don't spin the wheels that well . I carry 2-3 thousand pounds in the bed . that surly don't help . but the bottom line is they said if they wear they'll replace them .

    I only got 20 K on my Open Country's- store manager had to replace them and caught h#$$ from the district manager for it - they rebought $700 in tires from me- but unless there is something in the treadwear guarantee when you buy listing plowing as a deal breaker they legally have to replace them.
    and I don;t spin em either. Manager was perplexed at such a short life.

    Odd....I have 38,200 miles on the Pro Grades on my F-350 and should get close to 60,000 miles out of them.

    Over half of my miles are loaded or towing 9,000-12,500lbs.

    Stopped buying Goodyear's at all about 5 years ago when I had a set wear out after 15k miles. The only thing bitxhin to the top got me was a pro rated discount on another set which I told em to shove.
