Sailun or Goodyear??

Torn between the two tires mentioned above. My trailer is about 11000lbs dry and rated for just over 14000lbs loaded. I have the 235/80R16 10ply load range E, I think this rating needs to be higher. Whats everyone running and how are they working out?

My 5er has similar weights to yours and I have been running Sailuns for the last three years. No issues yet. ( knock on wood). Both pressure and temps stay low and it is usually in the mid 90s here in Florida when I am traveling.

Hi,


Very happy towing a relatively big fiver on Endurances for the last several years.


FWIW.

Sailun on my Bighorn no issues and now Sailun H on my Landmark with no issues. I concur they run cooler that Goodyear ever did and are more cost effective for a regroovable tire.

I have the same rig weights. Running GY Endurance E tires. Next will be sailun G

I was reluctant to introduce G tires to a pool of new E tires. Also G tires are not available at my local (discount tire).

Since then I have found them on amazon so they are available within 2day delivery window (ie have them delivered to the next destination.

I would agree same type of tire and load rating. Rims need to ge able to take 110 psi for G but you can run them less if you like within load ratings.

How can you tell if the rims will take the psi? Never mind. I just found the answer.

Unless otherwise stated on the wheel itself, wheels themselves will be able to withstand the psi rating of any tire that is confirmed to fit it. The piece that you will want to look at is the valve stem.

If you have a rubber valve stem then the highest rated one that is available (anywhere) would be up to 100 psi like part # AM20907. If you want to use a tire that has a psi rating over 100 then you will need to make sure that you have metal valve stems like part # AM20906.

Valve stems are fairly easy to install, you will just need to make sure that the metal washer on part # AM20906 is flush against your wheel to ensure a proper seal.

I have run the Sailun tires on a very similar weight 5th wheel now for about 3 years and they are great tires with no problems. I did replace Goodyear Marthon tires that came on the unit, and I had two blowouts on one trip, of course the warrant was with Goodyear and they did not make good on either tire. Needless to say I was not big on Goodyear at this point. Also the Goodyear g614 tire was three times the price of the Sailun tires.
My stock wheels also had to be replaced since they were only capable of handling 80 psi max. I bought 5 wheels and tires from the source of Prime Times wheels and tires Tredit tire and wheel. Five tires and wheels already mounted to the wheels was a little over $1,500 dollars, a very good deal in my mind.

We are running Sailun Gs on our second fiver triple axle. Can’t say anything but good about them. Wear like iron and run cool.

We got our local Tire Kingdom to match Simpletire prices. They had to use steel valve stems from Napa that are made for industrial tires and they are stout. We run them at the 110 psi with a better ride than the factory west lake E tires.

On my prior 5er we learned the hard way when it came to tires. 2 blowouts that resulted in thousands of dollars each in repairs. What a mess. So we bit the bullet and replaced our china bombs with Goodyear G614 tires and never looked back.

Goodyear G614 tires are US made and if you read the blogs, those that have experienced issues, Goodyear covered the repairs.

We just took delivery of a new Cedar Creek on July 13th and on July 15th, the tires were replaced with new Goodyear G614s. I have a full set of 5 Westlake tires (4 with just 219 miles on them and 1 never used spare) on sale at Craiglist.

I have GY614 now that were stock on the trailer when purchased. Ill be replacing in about 2 years with the Sailun S637ST. Charts show a higher load rate for the Sailun both with 110 psi. I ran Sailuns on our previous 5er and a MotorHome without any problems. Click image for larger version
