I thought some of you might be interested in these two photos; one of a 6 yr old G614 RST with about 35/40k miles on it holding up a 6.5 ton '06 3400RL & the other of a new tire.

Wow! I remember others noting wear on the 614's...but that seems like a lot. Course, I jumped over these and straight to commercial h's. John

They look like they are wearing pretty darn good.

I am no expert, but I am tending to agree with mlh. I thought the wear was quite reasonable. The horizontal sipes are about gone, but there is a measured 7/32nds of tread left. Oh, and I run them @ 105 PSI cold, monitored by PressurePro.

That's exactly how mine looked, the actual wear is minimal for the 5 years they were on. On our Alaska trip in 2013 my new G614 showed hardly any wear but the truck tires showed that they were on some rough roads, I went through about 2 years of normal driving wear in that 4 months on the Alaska Highway.

No doubt, the G614's are the best tire for heavy trailering hands down.

45,000 on ours but they still will be replaced at around 6-7 years.

We had about about that on ours, and they looked good up until the day one blew because I did not keep my vow to myself to replace them at 5 years. Went for 6 1/2 and it was too long and too late!
