I'm pretty sure I have a set of Gen II Goodyears. I ran 37 front 38 rear per manual. My SA recommended it as well. I have tons of potholes and examined the tires and wheels after they were taken off and winters were installed. No problems.
I've been watching this like a hawk--and so far no problems. I don't expect problems from my Dunlop snows.
