I've put about 6000 miles on 6 of the
SAILUN S637 225/70R19.5

Seems the price is around $130 - $150 each, Yours may be higher.

These were installed by the previous owner a year and half ago just before they put the MH up for sale. Not sure how many miles they put on them. We've had the MH since Nov 2014 and put a little over 6k miles on it since we owned it.

Steve, I am starting to think this myself the I should consider China tire. $2310 for the Summit China tire opposed to the $2876 they are quoting for the Sumitomo's.

They used 265-75R-22.5 Toyo's to replace my 275/70R 22.5.
What size coach did you put these on? Is it heavy DP? If they are 265's I would think they are a little shorter but around the same width? Did you notice size difference?

What state are you in and where did you get these at this price if you don't mind me asking?

We recently had the Sumitomos in that size installed on our Fleetwood. We used a local auto repair shop here in the Jacksonville, FL area that has a truck tire service as part of his business. He came out to our house and mounted and balanced the tires for $2,480.00. We replaced G670 tires which were aged out. I was skeptical of the Sumitomos as I couldn't find a lot of info on them related to RV use but decided that for the money, I couldn't go wrong. So far, I am pleased with the ride. It is too early to tell about the wear.

could you give me the name of the shop you used? the coach that I have is actually in Hudson Florida right now and that's where I'm looking for tires. Jacksonville is not that far and I could arrange something. That is a better price then I can find them for by about $400. and how long ago was it that you got these tires? And was it 6 tired? thank you

We used Coker Services in Middleburg, FL. He installed all six tires for us in Jan of this year. I will PM the number I have for him, as it might be his cell phone and he may not want that number on a public forum. He came highly recommended by a friend of mine who has owned several RVs. He was efficient and did quality work.

Thank you Cal. I got your pm and appreciated the referral. I will call him this morning for sure. I will respond back after talking to him. Fingers crossed as I like that price.

Con, I wanted to thank you! I got a hold of Coker Services yesterday. He is actually going to drive 30 miles to meet my driver at a Pilot Gas station and swap out 6 - 275/70R 22.5 Sumitomo ST727 for $2380 OTD installed with balance beads for balancing. This is a great deal! Thanks again for the referral!

Dave
