    Goodyear G114 upgrade

    Is there an option or a possibility to upgrade the tires on the GD Momentum from the Westlake CR960A to the Goodyear G114?

    Unfortunately we do not have a tire option available. Please give me a call tomorrow and let's put our heads together to see what we can come up with. I would like to hear your comments about tires.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I too am very concerned about the tires on the Momentum 385, we have placed an order, I asked about the tires at one of the RV shows. Is it possible to upgrade the tires to Goodyear? Thank you

    I don't know but wouldn't they have upgraded these tires after the NTSB recall in 2012. But I agree most want a quality tire on these machines since any RV is a major investment. Because your product is only as strong as it's weakest link. I don't have a huge problem but it would be nice to have an option.

    I agree. The tires are the key area of focus for me. In the last five years, I've had five sets of tires on my last fifth wheel due to serious defects. Chinese tires are affectionately known on other forums as "China bombs". I'm surprised GD hasn't heard of the issues with these tires.

    Bill, we reluctantly made our purchase with 15" tires AND the Westlake tires. Our dealer assured us that you had assured them there have been no problems with these tires on Grand Design. I went on trust and faith. If I have a premature failure I promise to revisit this and hope to convince you a change is needed. I would love to discuss this with you as well.

    Hi Tumbleweeds

    Please send me a message with your phone number and I will call you. I keep trying to learn more about tires and I discussed this with a tire distributor while I was at a dealership in Az. This past weekend. I keep hearing the importance of proper inflation.

    Regards,

    Bill
