Our Road Warrior came with the Sailuns 637. Currently we have around 18,000 miles on them, build date is 2417, on all 6 tires.
Some I know have switched from Sailuns to Goodyear because of the higher speed rating. But I am planning on getting new tires probably sometime in 2022 for our rig. My thought I am having great service from the Sailuns so right now I am planning on staying with them.

I had Sailuns (19.5's) on my '07 Jayco Seneca 33ss for 6 years with great results.
We traded for an '04 Pace Arrow 37c (class "A") and got 22.5 Sailun's a month ago.
We always have balance beads put in all our tires, so one trip from Colorado to Florida and back and she rides like a dream. Even all the way across I-10 to Houston, which will test ANY tire.

7-8 years, that is probably stretching the life a bit, after about 5 years the dry rot cracks start to show up. Have been in Az for over 30 years and on all types of tires and trailers, 5 years is about it. Maybe I need to find your tire guy.

weretired, i do not doubt that your set of saluns, as well as all other brands, that you have tried, have had dry rot stress cracks after 5 years in az . i dont live in az and have never visited az. i will when i drive down to get my toyhauler. out of all your tires that dry rot at 5 years.......where they all stored inside a building?

if you have never stored 1, a couple, or any of them inside a building, then did you at the very least cover the tires while parked?

if you have never stored any in any building and have never covered any tires while parked........do you think that may have extended the tire ( slowed the dry rot) 1 to 3 years possibly?

just trying to get some details is all.

i live 20 hrs north, my toyhaulers are always parked in a building when not in use.
thats why they still look new after 10 years.

Dsrace, My 2 current trailers are inside out of the sun, so I do not cover. This heat is really hard on tires, hence the shorter life span.

I'm on my first set of Sailuns and only have about 3,000 miles on them. So far so good. I'm very close to max on all six of them and generally run between 65 and 70 towing. Since I run a TPMS I know they are doing good on temperature and psi increases.

We spend 5 to 6 months in Florida and travel the rest of the time. My tires get covered only if we are stationary for a week or more. I never use solid cheap tire covers that hold moisture but rather the mesh type that shades the tires. I don't like to keep my RV tires longer than 5 or 6 years no matter what.

I run Sailun S637s on my 43'. No issues to date. They're a beefy tire. We just came back from an almost 900 mile round trip and they performed flawlessly. We were around 67 mph on the interstate most of the time.

Not a TT but a Class A - just put 6 new Hercules (made by Cooper) RSA’s 245/70r19.5’s Load Range G’s for $1740.00 bead balanced out the door.

#1 thing about tires - always weigh your coach, preferably by axle, and fill to the recommended air pressure prescribed by the manufacturer - NOT THE MAX AIR PRESSURE INDICATED ON THE TIRE!

#2 - more than the sun, a tire needs to be exercised to insure the internal compounds baked into the rubber stay distributed throughout the tire.
The sun is a factor, but so is exercising.

I have not heard of any issues with the salisuns...

Our group of 4 heavy toyhaulers have been running discount tire heartland all steel 235 85 16...speed rated N 87 mph. This is in las vegast heat....I've had them on the last 2 toyhaules with zero issues and close to 40k mikes towing at highway speeds and 110 deg heat with zero issues...

My one friend manages a motorcycle race team and is out 26 weekends a year in his toyhauler at Max weight.... He has had one tire issue in 18 tires...he actually wears tires out before they age out.

I was averaging about 3k to 6k miles a year towing in my toy Hauler and I've not had one issue with the Heartland brand in there all steel tires....

I even run them on my atv trailer now, and my little LW trailer

5 years is the recommended tire life from the 4 digit code on the tire wall (week/year) deterioration begins with cracking on the inside of the tire.
