Tire Dilemma...Carlisle or Sailun

I have Duro ST2100 235/85R16 F load (12 ply) tires on my 40' Cardinal fifth wheel and just had a blow out.

In Canada, we do not have the vast availability of trailer tires the States can provide. I'm down to two choices.
My 5th Wheel weighs in at about 15,300 lbs.
The Cardinal specs called for a 235/80R16 E load (10 ply) and too light in my opinion.

I'm looking at replacing them with either the Carlisle 235/85R16 F load (12 ply) or the Sailun 235/85R16 G load (14 ply).
The Carlisle's are rated for 3900 lbs and the Sailun's are rated at 4048 lbs.
Both are the same price from my tire dealer.

What's your opinion of these two tires?

What would you do?

Check your rims to see if they can handle the higher PSI required by the tires you're looking at. From the picture you posted those appear to be the Tredit T03 wheels which are only rated to 80 PSI. Those wheels are also known to crack so look them over carefully. The cracks almost appear to be scratches in the clear coat, but are early signs of wheel failure as they are micro fractures. I have personally seen 4 of these wheel failures on friends trailers. What I would suggest is getting the Saliuns and new wheels. Check out trailertiresandwheels.com as they have good pricing and free shipping.

Sailun.....I challenge you to find a bad review and that is tough in the RV forums. I bought a set for my 5er and love them.

No question, go Sailun. Have them on my Montana for 3+ years, never had the first problem.

Neither - Goodyear G614 tires are on my cargo trailer after having TOO many sidewall and tread separation problems with other brands of tires.

Go with GY "G" 16" and don't look back.

If I had to choose from the two mentioned it would be Sailun for sure!!!

I never said it did but the Saliun, and the GY tires you recommend are a 110 PSI tire and those rims are only rated to 80. In addition to them not being up to the task I thought it might be useful to know the problem history of those wheels, which are no longer used by Cardinal on their trailers because of the failures.

You bring up a very valid point in that regardless of what tire you install, the maximum psi allowed in the tire is based on either the tire or the wheel whichever has the least MAX PSI.
