I don't have an issue with Hankook or other tires backed by a national brand, as long as you're not running them to 80% of rated limits... Many RVs are at rated capacity, which means that they're over when going around a turn or traveling in a cross wind...

ST tires have strengthened sidewalls to prevent the tire from rolling under the rim in turns and when cornering. All ST tires have a maximum speed rating of 65 mph. ST tires feature materials and construction designed to meet the higher load requirements and demands trailer towing presents.

cb1000rider - X2 on the Sailuns. We've had ours for almost two years now. The ride is great and we've had no issues so far with wear or cracking. When we first bought them, our truck mechanic recommended them, saying that a lot of local truckers and wreckers used them.

Had personal bad experience with Chinese ST tires years ago. Haven't bpught them since. I still pretty frequently hear horror stories. Maybe things have changed, but I won't take the chance.

I also have Samson Tires on my Motor Home. I am very happy with them so far. They ride good and are H rated I run 90 Lbs all around. The only tire failures I have ever had in almost 50 years of rving was american made tires including american made Goodyear ST Tires on a 5th wheel. and Michlin on a motor home.
