Anyone having/had trouble with their Goodyear 900/60/32's? I have 700 engine hours on a farmer machine & they are cracking out real bad around the bead, right against the rim but only the inside of each rim (@3.4m centres). Looks like the rim is faulty, maybe rolled too far or not enough?
Also having issues with the steer tyres bubbling. Tyre Service guy to inspest later this week but just wondering if anyone else was having trouble as it will be $14000aud to replace the 4 tyres,let alone the rims!!!!!!!
Thanks, Bardo

Two similar headers in our area had problems with the front tyre. Not sure if they ended up changing the rims or the tyres. Pretty sure they ended up with new rims.

I have had to replace both of mine. Exactly the same happened. They are 800 s but again on low hours. The first went in year two and goodyear admitted they had a problem and paid 60%. The second went in year five and at that point they said that they didnt have a problem. I reminded them about the other side and at that point they agreed to pay about 25%.
I wont be buying goodyears again!

First set on our combine lasted about 500 hours then the sidewalls gave out.
Second set has bubbles between the cleat at 1500 hours. I dont think
goodyears are that great in their big tire line. Got a tractor tire that was
mated with a half wore out firestone and the new goodyear now shows much more
wear than the older firestone.
