G Rated Tires

One more question I have noticed regarding XLRs around here. They all seem to have the Westlake E rated tires. This is the same tire that is on our Work & Play and I must say, they've been great. But in our shopping and comparing our two favorites brands: XLRs and Fuzions, the Fuzions get the edge here because every one I've seen has the Sailun G rated tires.

Both brands are at two different dealers: Camping World and RV Outlet. This is the tire of choice for both brands at both dealerships.

You can factory order Westlake G's as an off list option. That said, I would stick to the GY 614's. The Sailuns have a great forum rep but a tire dealer on the FTE forums said he sees a lot of failures there and very few with the GY's.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the Westlake E rated tires. My plan has been to get the G614s as soon as I see any signs of issues with the china bombs. I'm in 16 months and about 6,000 miles with zero issues. I generally have the trailer loaded to 18k Lbs or so during the winter, a bit lighter in the summer.

Me too. My Work & Play came with them and we have close to 10K and they're fine. I always keep them in the dark when stored and they never get below 75-80 psi.

My concern is, even though its three axles, there's still much more weight than what my Westlakes carry now.

In comparing Fuzions against XLRs, I give this point to the Fuzions. Every Fuzion I've seen already have Sailuns and every XLR I've seen have Westlakes. Good tires but still not G rated.

Yes, but you can get the Westlake G's from XLR. Most dealers just don't bother ordering them on stock trailers.
