Go bald on the edges
as ShortandHairy said, my car s GoodYear tyres wore out on the edges. These are originally came with my Axio 165/65/15. I have inflated them each 30psi as it s written in the door edge. Runs 42000KM. When I go to change tyres, Tyre shop technician said, don t buy GoodYear, they wear edges. As of the googling I will buy Nexen. Hope it s OK.

Go bald on the edges?
These tyres are Factory specified for my 2005 BA Ute. I have gone through 4 sets in 150,000km. Each time, the outside edges wear out. Initially, I was blamed for under-inflation of the tyre but I filled them to the rated spec of 30 PSI Front and 30rear.(According to the tyre placard on the car).Or 30PSI Front and 60 PSI rear if fully loaded. The Ford Dealer, I took the car to, checked them and deflated the rears to the lower pressure when it went in for a service. Another set destroyed in under 40,000kms!. The Beaurepairs Tyre centre, I use, tells me to fill them to 50PSI on the front and 55PSI on the rear. The last 2 sets have been filled to this pressure. They still wore out on the edges! Ford say 1 thing, Beaurepairs, something else. I know that over inflation, ruins the centres of tyres and under inflation causes outside or edge wear, but surely these tyres at $225 a pop, should last a bit longer.? Anyone else had this problem?

Can anyone beat my milage
I purchased my Ford cab-chassis ute new 2 years ago with a set of G26 tyres. I ve had to replace one because of multiple punchers but the others are still on the vehicle. I ve just passed 180,000. I will be replacing the rest with G26 today. I think that is a positive recommendation. I am a courier.

Best value
Excellent got 60k on these. Still some trade left which is legal. Rotated for every 10k. Achieved better fuel economy. No issues with these tyres. Comparatively cheaper than the leading brands. I got for $125 each. As a courier do lot of u turns every day on road. Regular rotation will be fine. Highly recommended.

Cargo G26
I have a 2010 FG one tonner, changing over to a new set this week after 133,000klm on the original factory fitted tyre. Rotated twice with even wear to all, original spare still on the carrier. They can be a little slippery in the wet but otherwise great tyres, I have up to 800kg loaded in the rear and these have done about 50/50 city/country driving.

Expensive but high quality
My Cargos are now 7 years old with 70,000 kms on them. Due for replacement now and same problem as Yankx - tyres now perished and losing air. I have done thousands of kms on outback dirt roads and these tyres have stood up incredibly well BUT lethal in the wet!!!

First set 110,000 started losing air as they where 5 years old this is due to silca in tyres Second set 90,000 tyre walls have gone a bit soft due to not keeping tyre pressure up , I am going to buy a third set as these tyres have Excellent traction in all conditions

Reliable Tyre
I have a FG XR6 1 tonne ute I purchased new with factory fitted cargo G26 tyres, just hit 70000 kms and I am now replacing them as they are now illegal, always carrying fair loads, also towing 18ft dual axle trailer fully enclosed most of the time with anywhere between 1 and 2 tonne in the trailer most of the time. Never had a puncture, kept pressure around 45 psi all round, tyres rotated at recommended service intervals as per the book. I am replacing with the same tyre @ $195 inc gst each fitted and balanced. Price may seem up there but its the old saying you get what you pay for, 70000 kms is impressive but I also value having no down time with punctures etc.

Goodyear G26
Excellent tyre. Must keep an eye on tyre pressure as recommended by Ford, 34PSI Front & 44PSI Rear. During 3 years old, it has carried and travelled one tonne around. The tyre s have travelled 98000 klm and still approx. 10000 klm till replacement. Never done a wheel alignment or balancing when purchased the vehicle from new.

Goodyear Cargo can carry the load.
Cargo s came as original tyre fiitted to Falcon 1 Tonner. Have now done 65000km s with nearly 1 tonne on the back all the time. Tyres are unreal! Still have Legal tread but dont think they will make to 70k. Run 55psi in rear and 45psi in front. Not rotated tyres in its life so rear have worn a bit quicker but who cares as the performance of these tyres is No1.

Solid Performer on VW Caravelle People Mover
Have achied good wear and tear in 100,000 Kms on bitumen country and city roads. Exdperience two punctures late in this cycle one due to a mesh fence attach bolt penetration which did not let the pressure out of the tubeless configuration but required a tube and one due to a pop-rivet which was sealed with a plug. On the VW Caravelle, regular rotation and correct tire pressure appears to give a best return on wear scenario. Cost to replace at KMart Tyre and Auto Service (Melbourne, Australia) is typically AUD199 incl GST per wheel fitted and balanced. These tyres work well with the car s anti-skid system on wet ungrooved road. Ride is firm.

Good
Great tyre for multiple use where you need the confidence of no punctures, eg. Rural area. Should be cheaper but hey life is like that!

OK
Very good traction in dry conditions but lacks confidence building in wet conditions. Long milage due to very deep tread . I have travelled 58000 Ks and never rotated tyre positions. Front tyres have about 2.5mm tread to the wear indicators and rears have about 1.5 to 2mm to to wear indicators on a BA falcon tray top 1 ton ute. I dont carry loads often but do drive a bit hard.

Very Good value for money
Very happy with my new Goodyear Cargo G26 Paid only $600 for the 4 tyres fitted & balanced Why buy a cheaper unknown brand for the sake of saving a few dollars. Done over 3000km no problems yet Very happy with ride and handle I find them quieter then my previous Michelin
