Sailun vs Endurance

I am getting ready for new tires, long trip coming up in a month or so.

Sailun or Goodyear Endurance?

I have read reviews that both are great tires. Sailun almost 1/2 price. What say you?

Are you looking for G rated tires? I don't think Sailun makes anything smaller than 235-80R16 G.

Personally I like the E rated endurance I'm running. Comparable to my Maxxis 8008's.

I have a 2014 Sanibel around 11,000 lbs on two axles. Load range E was a little too close to max for me, so went with Sailun load range G which at 4,000 lbs a tire load rating, gives me plenty of reserve. So far, Sailuns are great. No more worries about overloading and run lot cooler.

To add to the posting, I am aware of the Sailun being LR-G. My rig spec’d with LR-D and 15” tires. It came with the optional LR-E with 16’s. G will be considered, especially being 1/2 the price of endurance. I am at 10.8k fully loaded, (fridge, full black, both greys, main water tank, clothes, batteries, propane....) I never travel with the tanks full, and keep the water at about 1/2, unless boondocking for a week or more. I wanted to fully load just to know my max numbers. Typical towing has been CAT’d @ 10-10.4k. The loading sticker says I can go 12.9k, so I am well under weight with anything I can foresee.

About the only things I may add 2 more GC-6 batteries. (Guessing about 110 lbs?) Maybe 1-2 more solar panels? (70–80 lbs for two)

A question I have, will the Sailun sidewalls be too stiff for this setup if I use them? Everything I have read on the Sailun, say they are a fantastic tire, and at 1/2 the price of GY Endurance.........

Poor comparison here. I’ve never seen a G rated Endurance...E is as high as they go. And, Sailun is nowhere close to half the price of the Endurance. The largest GY runs $150-$170. Sailun is advertised at $145-$165. There are price advantages for tires made in China, but not half price.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

I am getting H Rated 17.5 inch on my new Heartland Landmark. The Riverstone's have the same tires available I believe.

I will post my price quote sheets when I get the chance. It is not exactly half the price, but close enough to make the comment. I am still shopping and comparing. Thanks everyone for the input. Maybe there is a GY deal I have missed. GY Endurance is the top of the lot in E, and the Sailun seems to be top in the G series, maybe Hercules too?

I am wondering about the stiffness of the sidewalls on the Sailuns, tho. As my CAT weights indicate, I safely within E range. However, I have not weighed individual axles yet, but all 4 seem to wear about the same.

The tires are 4+ years old, Big-O house brand, so I never did have faith in them. Had to get what they had when I was on my first trip out of town with the rig. Have about 10k miles on them so far. Getting ready for a 7-10,000 mile trip soon and don’t want to have to “get what they got” again! I am shopping the larger chains so far in my area, but I know GY has shops everywhere.
