Sailuns and High Specs Showed Up

Going to get mounted and balanced tomorrow. Anyone had experience with these causing a rough ride shaking things up? I was going to test by putting a bottled soda in the trailer and drive around and then feel how hard the bottle is or how bad it is shaken up.

Depend on how much load they carry. If you over tired the trailer with a load G tire then it can be a bit hard on the trailer and its contents.

If their carrying close to their huge 4080 lb rating then all is well.

Nice looking set up. I think you'll be pleased.


The last set of Sailun's we had mounted (Les Schwab) commented that they spun true on the machine, and only required minimal balance weights. That trailer pulled very well. We didn't note any harshness or vibration. It was a 34' Travel Supreme and weighed about the same as yours 16K +/_.


Overtired a trailer???? Surely you jest, or is that like when you have to much truck to tow a trailer?


Be well.

I think they will work out well and lessen the worry of a blow out.

They are actually regroovable, so there is a lot of rubber in the tread area, tho I would not regroove them. I have found several nails, screws and the like in the tires that never made it thru to causse a leak.
Great looking wheels...
You didn't have them shipped mounted and balanced?

No. I got a way better deal by ordering tires from simple tire . com and the wheels off Amazon with prime shipping. Trailertiresandwheels wanted almost 500.00 more.

Sailuns are maybe the only decent Chinese tire to put on a RV right now.

Only problem is that dealers are few and far between.

But I've never heard a single complaint or even anyone mentioning one shredding on them.

They're probably a really good value in a tire--especially since they're G rated heavy.

Na. I stuck with the 235's on my 16's. Really happy with them though. Running them at 90 psi due to my rim rating. Had some initial concern with running lower than max pressure. Checked my heat with infrared after coming off the highway. Not a concern at what I saw. 92*F same as my truck.
Dealer and tire rep were right.
