I'm glad everyone has opened up on there experiences here. Makes a decision so much easier knowing the problems with standard tires.

What was installed on the unit new? Was it a "C" rated trail express? You are the first person I heard of that had 80 psi rims on installed by FR. They must not be series 6 rims. They would have to be 16" tires not the normal 15" that the 8289WS comes with. Now that surprises me.

Tires?

We have the 371 REBH. It came with "Constancy LY188" Load Range E tires rated at 3520 pounds each @ 80psi. Our unit's GVWR is 15,500 with 7000 pound axles. It really doesn't leave any extra wiggle room.

They definitely should have come from the factory with 14 ply tires with a higher weight rating. Two have failed in 5 month and about 10,000KM.

I'm going to get a cash settlement for my tire warranty and buy some heavier duty tires.

Edit: The rims that came on our unit are 110psi rims.

How do you know what psi your rims are rated for? We have a 371REBH, researching tired now. Thanks!

Hey,

It will be printed inside your rim. If you have these rims they are 110psi.

Here is a picture showing the difference in size vs my old tire and the new Sailun.

I replaced them all, I just brought 1 tire on each side of the trailer to the shop at a time; she is a heavy beast!

Thanks for the quick response! What made you go with the Sailun tires over the G14's? Also, were you able to get any money back on old tires under warranty? Thanks again!

I read a lot online and heard good things about the Sailun tires. The reason why I didn't go with the good years is the price... They are like $400-$450 Canadian per tire, too expensive in mind for a trailer tire.

They warrantied all 4 of my tires even though 3 were defective... I believe they gave me around $76-$78 US which worked out to $400 Canadian.

Our friends ordered the same trailer as us at the same time and his tires are starting to do the same bulges as ours did. In my mind the factory tires are underrated; if I remember correctly they are rated for 3500pds each. Too close for comfort.

Thanks again. I got a quote of $1058 w road hazard from NTB. Looks like I'm going to go that route and add TPMS as well.

Ugh. Makes me wonder if I don't change mine. I'm at about 2500 miles on them. I got weighed the other day and I wasn't fully loaded..... 14,100 pounds. @3500/tire capacity is 14,000...... And they are only rated for 75mph. The limit here in Texas in a lot of the state is 75 so you're maxed out all the time. Grrrrr..........
