G670 blowout; Now "Sailum" tire owner

Just west of Kingston, Ontario, I experienced a blowout of my left rear inner tire (8 years old) at 60 mph. Fortunately, no damage to the rig or to my psyche. TPMS reported the blowout, but wasn't a help because it was an instantaneous event. Wouldn't you know it, I had planned to replace all tires this fall before my snowbird trip this coming winter.

Local Goodyear vendors could not find a G670 for me, thus I had to accept a "Sailum" (made in China) 270/70R225 in order to get rolling again. Via searching this forum and the web in general, I've found nothing to help me feel better about this tire.

I don't intend to keep this tire on my rig, but I thought I'd ask if any of you have knowledge of this company and/or its product. For example, this tire may be a tractor-trailer tire....not a long-term-use RV tire. Just don't know.

TIA.
Robi

How much did they cost? Did you get a good deal? G670 can run $700.00 each.

Robi,
We are attempting to keep track of tire failures at Tire Failure Records thread. If you could follow the link and fill out a form it would be much appreciated.

Purchased only one tire: $402. Mounted at the side of the road (i.e., tire not balanced). Some 2 years back, I did have to replace a G670, costing in the low $500s as I recall.

WOW, I got Michelin 305/70 22.5's for just barely over $600, mounted and balanced, out the door. And people rag on Michelin for being high priced!!

Made in China Tire

My nephew owns a Trucking outfit and drives MANY Kilometers / Miles a year (200,000 km). He just told me, that he gets more miles on his Made in China Tires, than for e.g. a DUNLOP Tire. His trucks don't drive many miles without a load. He drives between Saskatchewan and Vancouver, BC.
I do not remember the Brandname.

TW, thanks. As you can see, there has been no feedback about the "Sailum" brand, so if you can obtain the brand-name from your nephew, that would be a big help.
