I really don't wanna burst your bubble but keep your expectations low. I sell this brand at my shop but it remains a 3rd tier brand or a "last resort" tire in my book. They will wear fast among other things.

I put a set of Sailun G tires that you described on my fifth wheel about 16 months and 10k miles ago. I have been very happy so far with the tires and at the current wear they are showing, they should easily go the 5-6 years that I expect out of them. I paid $153 ea for mine from Simpletire.

That's interesting because if you research the RV blogs, Sailuns are one of the highest rated tires with the fewest complaints. What tire do you recommend or sell the most?

disclaimer - i do not have these tires. but i am really looking at them to replace the goodyear G614's i do have. from what i read trailer tires do not wear out, they age out. the sailuns have a greater load capacity for the same sizee. i do not read about failures or blow outs on either the goodyears or the sailuns.

i know that sailun makes many sizes and types of tires. the wear out comment may well be valid and useful when talking about driven tires. but does it apply to trailer tires?

As Full Timers, we put on 10k miles a year and the trailer tires will be worn out before they age out in our case. As a Hot Shot driver and I would go through a set of trailer tires each year, ave 70k miles. Not all trailer tires age out!

I will admit I have not installed Sailun on an RV. I have sold hundreds for vehicles and some light trucks. All models tend to wear fast no matter the speed rating. For tow vehicles, many are quite noisy compared to better offerings. This matters little on a trailer though. I can say I rarely have quality issues other than some belts shifting when the tire is 2/3 worn out anyway.

On trailers I still opt for Goodyear. Marathons are generally a safe bet and no issues on our CHINESE made Marathons from 2015 yet (knock on wood). They have a newer model which is supposed to be superior.

Michelin makes decent tires most of the time if they don't dry rot in 3 years. I cannot support the company though after they gave us resellers the shaft many years ago.

Sailuns are the recommended tire over on the Montana Forum.
I have had 2 delaminations and 1 blowout on the Goodyear G614's in 3 years.
The last 1 was a week ago Monday stopped at Les Schwab in Rexburg Idaho had them put Sailun 235/85/16 there. Paid 262.00 per tire mounted balanced. Yes that part was painful.
But the next 300 miles were the Smoothest riding, Straighest tracking miles i have ever driven. Got home started searching for a spare and found the Amazon Deal, almost cried but ordered my spare showed up the next day with a Simpletire sticker and a build date of 1419
$125.43 to my door. Wanted to pass the deal on cause I would have been real happy if someone had let me know that deal was out before I paid so much.

SimpleTire is running 10-30% off some tires currently, I get ads all the time as I bought Sailun 17.5s from them--some of the best trailer tires I ever ran. No experience with 16s, but did run their 19.5s on my '09 450 for 70k+ miles without problem.
So far, watching several rv forums over the past years, have heard of only 1 Sailun 17.5 failure.

I'm gonna keep an eye out for the best brands currently available and ask my wholesalers' advice. I've been reading a lot of bad on the Marathons I have and little good on any tire other than your praise of the Sailuns. I'm glad it worked out for you and hope they are better than their automotive grade tires.

Are yours load range E or G? Maybe Sailun's niche is the RV tire?

Thank you for the pic. I am calling them this week for other issues and will mention it. We are very limited on ST tire brands. Lots of Chinese no name brands, off-brands like Galaxy, Carlisle (which has turned to doo-doo). Only Goodyear appears a "quality" choice. I will ask though and keep you all posted.
