Urgent help please need Tires for 365 SAQ

I had a blow for the first time yesterday.I am out of state ,down at Jacksonville NC.I plan on getting 4 new tires before heading home.Anybody have recommendations? Tire size is 235/80/16.I was looking at good year tires .My tires are six years old but looked new,however I guess it was time to replace them anyway.i have the 6k axles.I have found other off brand tires and I am thinking,I would be better off with a good year or something close. Thanks

Michelin, BF Goodrich Commercial TA, Bridgestone Durval. Pick any name brand LT tire you can find at a decent price and go happy.
BTY the Good Years mentioned above might cause your more problems. Those tires require 110 PSI to achieve maximum load carrying capacity, and your wheels are not likely rated for that pressure. And at around 250 dollars a pop totally unnecessary for a trailer with 6K axles. I would stick with a name brand LT tire.

We run Sailun 235/80/r16 LRG 14 ply tires. I did a lot of research before buying these. They are not China bombs even though made in china. They actually go through rigorous testing. I keep track of the TPMS on our trips. Even here in Florida when the temp gets in the mid 90's the tire temp remains under 100 and the psi never has gone above 122. We really like them.

I have the G614's and really like them so far, I have a little less than 5000 miles on them since July 2016. My rims would handle the 110 psi, so I just had to get the metal valve stems. Its a very heavy tire as compared to my original Westlake's.

Price - I was watching Amazon for some time till they came on sale - around $280/ea plus tax, free shipping to my door. Then of course had to buy the metal valve stems (about $20) and get them mounted and balanced (around $100 from my local Goodyear store)

Now if you need rims and tires - might check out (Ron) Performance Trailer Braking website for some good deals on both brands of tires and/or tire and wheel combo's.
Good luck!!
Ken

PS: I did just get Disk Brakes (April 2017 - 500 miles) from them as well - and all I can say - I have some great stopping power now. Another great investment for my rig that has a gross weight of 16k.

x2 what saus said. My extensive research lead me to think these might be one of the best values in tires for heavy loads. I do not have enough time or mileage on mine to personally confirm the research and recommendations on which I relied. They appear to be constructed more like commercial tractor/trailer than most other brands marketed for our TTs & 5ers. They are marketed to commercial truckers.

Whichever brand you choose, find a source with a high turn over so you have a chance of getting newer tires. Check the date code on the tire to be sure you are not getting ripped off by the service station.

Tires start aging once they are made and dealerships rotate their stock by selling the oldest tires they have first. A shop where they see few trailer tires sold may have tires 2 or 3 YEARS old (or more as we have seen here) sitting on the shelf.

The date code is in the format (2410) stamped on the tire. This code is the 24th week of 2010.

Best tires Low prices

Check with the local Ford desler. I got Goodyears cheaper than walmart. You need to apply for a Ford service card to get $140 off and free mounting, balancing and nitrogen. You don't have to drive a ford. It is the best deal in town here.

Tires

My rims are 16x6 my tire size 235/85r16. I run 90 psi as a e-rated but at 110 psi they are g-rated. These tires are as good as they come and half the price of Goodyear and Michelin. I got mine from easy-tire. My 5ver came with Gladiators, with the tire of off the wheel you could push the center down with very little effort the sailuns are really stiff in the center and much heavy in weight. the 235/85r16 are a little bit bigger in diameter than the 235/80r16, but with the 85's you can run faster 65 mph if you so desire. Even if you trade the trailer you will have paid half the price of Goodyear's and they are as good if not a better tire. I hope this helps you.

FYI

I found out the reason for most blowout is SPEED.....most RV TIRES ARE ONLY RATED FOR 65MPH......and every where you look on the freeway people are driving over 65......slow down people....speed ratings are not on those tires for nothing....As for tires...buy a good quality tire and go up on the load range....if its a D go to an E...

Carlisles are supposed to be good. I am getting ready to purchase tires and have done a LOT of research (almost too much). I am going with either Goodyear Endurance or Carlisle 235/80R16Es. Yes they will fit your wheels as I have the same size (16x6) and both are close to the same price.

I would say for sure Goodyear Endurance, but they have only been out since about Jan, so don't have a lot of history behind them, yet. Tire testing and reviews show they should last, I still would like more real usage data.

Sailun S637T HD ST sizes ST235/85R16 & ST235/80R16 do specifically fit 16x6.5 rims. I do not know if that works for 16x6. You can check Sailun's site at Sailun Tires Homepage It is very informative. I use the ST235/85R16 on my 5er.

Good post. Just to be clear, when you say "with the 85's you can run faster 65 mph ..., " Sailun's published speed rating for both the ST235/85R16 & ST235/80R16 is "L," which means 75 mph.

"Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds." N speed rating is 87 mph not that I would tow that fast....

My truck's speedometer goes to 120, too.

Ratings are not for sustained driving, I would not imagine. And if they are, and if you tow that fast, please pass me on the Left only.
