Sailun tires have a pretty good reputation around here. Lots of people are using them, and those who do use them never seem to have anything bad to say about them.

Put them on, try them out and report your findings here!

Haven't used them on a MH, but on a 5th wheel, they're outstanding.

Of all the tire companies based in China, I believe that both Sailun and Samson have some of the best reputations in the commercial trucking industry. Personally, I'm moving closer and closer to actually considering tires from Chinese-based companies. I'm not as concerned about the quality as Sailun and some of the other Chinese brands are a good tire, I'm just a bit uncomfortable about the "political aspects" of buying from a Chinese-based company.

Here's a quote from a VP at Dynamic Tire, Brian Mielko, that also sells commercial truck tires, :
"The Sailun brand is sold in 125-plus countries worldwide.

Additionally, he pointed out that Chinese industry is perfectly capable of making first-rate stuff. 'Don’t tell me the ground that the factory sits on has anything to do with the quality of the product coming out of it' he said. Going on, “they build a heck of a lot of the parts for airplanes that are overhead;” they also make Apple iPads and Sony flat-screen TVs.

Candidly, Mielko said they can build you a terrible tire or they can build you a great tire… It all comes down to engineering and materials.

Tire Makers Michelin, Goodyear, Yokohama and Continental “they’re all there building tires in China” Mielko said, adding that Pirelli’s biggest factory is located there."
...from this interesting article on car tires:

Should I Buy Tires Made in China?

I'm confident that you'll find your Sailun tires a quality product and they'll serve you well.

I put a set on my Dump truck (8 rear 11 24.5) last fall and I am actually surprised at how well they doing. They have seen some tough road conditions and are handling it well. They seem to ride and handle the same as anything else I have used.
I will put another set on when it is time. I would consider them for my coach as well.

Lots of people like to slam 'china bombs' but I'm willing to bet they are unknowingly driving on them anyways.

Michelin, Goodyear, Yokohama and Continental all make some of their tires in China.

I bought 6 new one about a year and 4,000 miles ago. Much better riding and handling than the good years I took off. Had to go from f to g,s in 245-75-19.5

Had my tires installed with dynamic beads. Road smooth and straight at 65. Happy so far. Will see what kind of milage I get.

After much research I've decided on Sailun truck tires too. $2,200 for 6, mounted, balanced, installed, and taxes included. Apparently any tire store that sells Cooper tires can also sell Sailun. I put 4, LR G on our 5er and eliminated tire problems.
