Tires for 5th wheel

Tires for 5 th wheel. We want to replace all our tires on our fifth wheel. Any stand out brands. We had a blowout on a good year and we purchased a high run from the local tire shop but want to replace all before the next trip.

You don't say what size or load range. I replaced my Tow Max load range D tires with Maxxis load range E from Amazon and had them installed by a local tire shop. 8,000 miles with no issues. Maxxis tires are not made in China.

Let me clarify: size and load range of the current TIRES.

For a 5er that size I would recommend the Sailun S637. I run them in a LT235-85-16 LR G. They are very well made all position commercial truck tires.

If your rims are good for 110psi, get the sailun s637.

I agree.. Sailun S637. SimpleTire has them. They'll provide a reference to a local installer. Typically shipping to the installer is cheaper.

These tires weigh 61 lbs each. About twice what the OEM tires did.

X2 on the Sailun S637 in a 235/85-16 G 110 psi at 3750 lbs capacity. These are a all steel carcass commercial grade tire made as a all position.
The Goodyear G614 is a regional service trailer tire in a LT235/85-16 G 110 psi also a all steel ply carcass tire. The G614s are pricey

I sure wouldn't put any brand ST tire back on a trailer that size.

The Sailun's are the only Chinese tire I'd ever suggest. But dealers are few and far between if you have a problem.


The other acceptable tires are the Bridgestone Duravis R250's, the Michelin LTX ribbed tire and the Goodyear G614's. They're all fine tires.


I went with the Bridgestone R250's bought at Costco for $197 after a $70 per set rebate. They're incredibly beefy and very heavy duty tires. If you mounted them on a pickup truck, you'd be getting 140K to 150K miles usage.


The Michelins are more expensive than R250's. The G614 Goodyears are even more expensive than the Michelins.

This was my route as it's the same tire I had been using on the F350 towing vehicle.

I've never experienced a blowout using the LT, changing out the ST that I no longer trust on my heavy trailer.

A "Blowout" is more properly called a Run Low Flex Failure" and happens when you get a tire leak (puncture, cut or valve leak) but continue driving at highway speeds. With your polyester body ply tires you can melt the Polyester right out of the tire so with no cord left to hold the air it "blows Out"

How old are your tires?

What is the actual load by tire position or at least by each axle?

Be careful there are both ST235/85R16 LR-G and LT235/85R16 LR-G and while each runs 110 psi, which might be more than your wheels are rated for the max load of the ST and LT are different.

Also note that some of the Sailun sales people don't have a clue about tires or their proper application. I have talked with 4 different people and only one had a clue.
