I'm brand new to this forum and just purchased my first 5th wheel. (2017 Cedar Creek 33IK) and began with this tire thread. I went out to see what was on my unit. Constancy ST 235/80R16 load rated E 5Ply single 3520 max. What say you?

With a GVWR of over 14,000# ~~ If mine I'd sell those tires fast and replace with Sailun LRG. JMO....

I like the Goodyearís, I feel safer with the LT tires. Just my opinion

My CC 36 ckts original Goodyear G614ís are 5 or 6 years old. They only have about 2k miles on them. Anyone with these tires? They look like new on the outside, but concerned about inside rot or stress. Any thoughts?

I ran the 614s on the 16k horse trailer six years and over 25,000 miles. They looked almost new. Replaced with another set just like them. Lots of folks really like the Sailun brand but I prefer the American made Goodyear.

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 just put new 225/75/15-ST Hercules SP2 10-ply 'E' range tires on my 10,000 pound 5'ver.

Had the same size, but they were Hi Run 8-ply 'D' range tires before.

Trailer is almost three years old and had BlowMax 'D' range tires on it, but I swapped them out for the Hi Runs before I pulled it off of the dealer's lot.

Only have about 15 miles on the Hercules tires, but I could feel the difference in the ride.

They came heavily recommended by several RV'ers I know, so thought I'd give them a try.

I wanted to get the Maxxis 8008's, but nobody carries them around here, and all of the tire stores called them 'internet tires', meaning they seem to only be available from internet sellers.

The problem I was running into was that none of the tires shops around here would let me have tires shipped to them for install. nor would they let me bring them in so they could install them.

Said it was a 'liability issue'.

I can see this as a big issue in the not-so distant future as sticks and bricks stores fight the internet for market share.

I just retired from retail, so I understand this completely!

The only place that would allow me to ship to them was Pep Boys, whom I do not trust to jack my trailer off of the ground!

Sad to hear that. I called the local tire shop 2 days before delivery of my 5er. The tire shop had them waiting for the 5er on the way home. Took the wheels off right in their parking lot and did a nice job... Maybe some (most) retailers are looking at the highest profit margin??

What I was trying to do was minimize how many times I needed to haul the trailer somewhere and have the wheels taken off since I now live in my RV.

I was having the wheel bearings repacked and brakes, axles, springs and all of the other suspension stuff checked and adjusted and was going to get that work done, then haul the trailer to the tire shop.

After I couldn't get anyone to accept the Maxxis tires from the internet, I was going to buy the Hercules tires from a truck tire shop just down the road from where I'm staying at on my way home from the axle shop, but I ended up getting the axle shop to price match the same tires and have the work all done at once!

I'm hitting the road this Saturday for a couple of months down to warmer weather and wanted all of this stuff done before I leave.

I have the same concern. My G614's have a few more miles but not showing any wear. I'm not sure when to replace them just due to age alone. Mine are also 5 years old.

My G614 came on my 15 Cedar Creek and have I donít know how many miles, probably if I had to guess 40,000 miles or more and still look new. I plan on using them this year and maybe buying more next year. I have a brand new spare under the camper, so I wonít have to buy but three. Anyway thatís the plan

5 - 7 years and the tires are worn out even if NEVER used. Many, like me change at 5 years and some manufacturers say 7. Miles make no difference, they die with age long before being worn out.

Thatís why I plan on putting more tires on the camper next year, I want to get some use out of the spare. G614 tires are not cheap and I can keep the best tire thatís left for a spare for under the camper and keep another one just in case for the trip to Alaska next year

Yeah I have same trailer and it came with same tires. Two tires failed after 16 months and 11,000 miles. Sidewall failure on both. Itís not the miles but the sitting and poor construction. Easier to replace them at home than on the side of the road.

Your tires were probably made in 2014. They should be good for the duration you mentioned. However, the spare has aged just as the ones on the road. If not changed (I do) with the rest maybe leave it as the spare and buy 4 until the following change for all 5.

Thanks for answering. What did you replace them with and how are they holding up?

Buy what you like I'll put Goodyears back on the camper. I try to buy American when I can. Besides I think the G614 are a better tire

I used to work for USPS part time as a rural mail carrier. All the rural carriers used Hankook tires for strength and durability on the many miles of rough gravel roads they traveled. Has anyone used Hankook tires on your trailer? I'm wondering if they would be a good choice?
