Another thing to remember and take into consideration when reading these tire threads but often gets lost in the shuffle...

Almost every thread/post I've read where someone has replaced their "China Bombs," have done so with the next (or sometimes two) load range BETTER.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing... just that everyone is quick to say they haven't had the problems with their replacements like they did the OEM tires... but it's not really comparing apples to apples.

Did I replace my tires?... yes... the OEM Castle Rocks lasted a year and a half (about 9000 miles) and began to have belt separation. I replaced mine in September with Goodyear Endurance in the next load range higher. No problems so far.

Sadly, you are correct. Sailun does not build a tire for the 14" and 15" wheels. Prior to selling my last 5er to my neighbor recently I replaced the Carlisle tires with new Carlisle HD tires. I ran Carlisle on TTs and 5ers for many years without a problem and did not see a reason to test tires for GY. Hopefully, the Endurance will follow the 614 but I also recall the GY Marathons were great for a while and then turned to crap. I don't really trust GY after that.

After failures with many brands, I have had good luck so far with Carlisle load range E on my 10,000 lb racing trailer.

Goodyear Endurance trailer tires are a great new line of trailer tires.
Thanks for the promo code! I just purchased 5 new Goodyear Endurance tires and received 35% off the website price!

Any recommendations for good valve stems for my aluminum Wheels?

I tried both of the Goodyear codes and was informed by the website that they were invalid. Are they for certain sizes?

My Cedar Creek came with Westlake. They have 20,000 miles on them. Going to Alaska next year and probably replace.

We have a Grey Wolf 26RR toy hauler which was delivered with what everyone has called the China Bombs in 14". Had planned to run them for a while when we had a 2 wheel bike. After the medical need to change to a trike and the extra weight, I immediately changed to Goodyear Endurance 14" D rated. Very first trip with these tires was 1,994 miles from Vermont to Texas, trike and more loaded in the toy hauler (was a necessity). I couldn't be happier with peace of mind and the way these tires held the road for the entire trip ~ wet, dry and many different road surfaces. Best money I've ever spent (so far).

Goodyear Endurance. Went from D rating to an E. This is all my 6 lug rims will handle. Glad to step up one range though. No issues so far but only a couple thousand miles on them.

We replaced our original TT tires within 1,000 miles with Goodyear Endurance. Drove cross country and back, over 9,000 miles, with no problems. Also installed a TPMS. Great tires.

Thanks so much.
After 2 blowouts in 2 days in the summer of 2003 in SD, we decided to invest in a new set of tires. We had about 4,500 miles on the stock (Chinese?) tires in less than 3 years. The dealer in SD said that the farmers and ranchers test tires like no one else and he recommended Maxxis or Carlisle. We purchased Maxxis Bravo Commercial LT235/85R16 made in Taiwan. The tread is 3 poly, 2 steel and 2 nylon, with the sidewall at 3 poly. The are rated at 3,042 lb at 80 PSI with an E load range. We have an average of 2,500 lbs on each wheel with our 5th wheel. We have about 15,000 miles on the tires and no problems so far. A friend got his new Holiday Rambler 5th wheel several years ago equipped with these exact tires, and put 50,000 miles on them with no problems. Due to tire age, he finally bought new tires, but they had a lot of tread on them yet. Happy searching!

Prior to heavier 5ers I ran Carlisle on TTs and 5ers too without a problem. With the much heavier Montana I'm running Sailun now.
