What About These Tire Brands?

Was referred to Simpletire.com for replacement tire options. I've never heard of Sailun, Double Coin or Pro Meter and was curious if anyone has experience with these brands. The link to my tire size is attached and any comments would be helpful.

Sailun tires are getting pretty popular, especially their trailer tires. Double Coins get mixed reviews on the sites I researched when I was looking for tires. I've never heard of Pro Meter. Given a choice of those three, I'd choose Sailuns.

Having said that, I put Samson GL283A's on and am very satisfied with them.

Why would you need to replace tires on a 3 year old diesel coach??

In researching those 3 brands mentioned, it appears they're manufactured in China. The tires on your coach are the weakest link between it and the pavement. With that in mind I would highly recommend spending the extra $$$ to buy only known brand tires.

I'm biased toward Bridgestone tires as we've been using them on our coach for 15 years replacing them once at 7 years with zero problems.

Good luck with your choice & safe travels....

I replaced Michelins at 7 years with Sailuns. The Sailuns have run at least as well as the Michelins and are a higher load range so that is a good thing. I replaced 235/80 with 255/70. I have a tpms and put in counteract beads with no problem. The cost savings was quite good. At 6 tires for everything it was $2078 which is significant for me.

Most Chinese tires appear to be on trailers. Most blow outs and tire malfunctions appear to be on trailers. I had one set on a 5th wheel...after a tire came apart, I put LT tires on...no more problems. I would not use Chinese tires on anything.

Toyo tires seem to be making headway with good reviews.

More Made in China junk. Why risk your, and your families lives
with cheap, unknown quality brands of tires ?

If you do a diligent search, you will find that most tires are now made in China. Long haul truckers use a lot of Sailun, Samson, and Hercules.

For a RV trailer it came with the China made 14" tires. We just completed our 4th season with them. Two of them I notice some cracking...We are planning a trip to Alaska next summer and would like to upgrade to a better tire. What is on there are Akuret ST205/ 75R 14 load range "C". Does anyone make a higher load range , American made RV trailer tire in a 14" size.

My local tire shop who used to do RV tires, no longer does....

At www.Harriger.com/tires I found codes for all the tire manufacturing plants around the world. I was amazed at the very large number of them. I googled all the DOT tire plant codes around the world.
