I’ve had mine a year and like the Sailuns a lot. A buddy has 35,000 on his which includes a trip to Alaska and back. He is planning a trip east so had them looked at by his tire store, was told not to worry.

Endurance as others have said are not a G rated tire. If I didn’t have a local dealer for the Sailuns I would order them online and pay for the install and balancing.

I don't know what the Sailun tires cost and I could not find anywhere local to see them, so I went the route of the many cattleman who pull heavy cattle and truck trailers at high speeds. I swapped my cheap 16" tires and wheels for a 19.5" commercial tire and wheel package from BOAR Tire and Wheel. Bolt pattern is the same and they fit perfectly. They can even be retreaded if desired but I doubt I will need to ever replace them on my Genesis CR32 Toyhauler. They are G rated, require 110 psi, and rated for 75 MPH speeds. The deep hard rubber tread vastly decreases rolling resistance and they have improved my mileage about 1 mpg. Absolutely no problems in a year and a half. They do lose 1 pound of air pressure during the winter.
Cost me about $1,400 out the door price for everything. Just another option.



IMO not a very good option at that price, where you could of ordered Sailuns at less then half that price, and at this point there is no better 16" G rated tire on the market.

Last summer we bought Hartland ST Radial All Steel from Discount Tires for our 40' 5th wheel. Max PSI is 110 G rated and they weigh about 60 lbs. Have had no problems with them after several long trips and many short trips..
Just put some on my 34' 5er. Interesting tire.. no tread design. Got rid of Carlisles after one blowout and watching the inner rib wear way faster than the rest of the tire. Discount serviceman thought the tire was starting to come apart. So did I.

Just out of curiosity I looked at the 637 as a probably soon replacement for our 5th wheel but only found 16" tires. What is a suggestion for our 15" wheels? We are in Northern Idaho so looks like we would have to go the Amazon, Simpletire route and get them shipped to us.
Thanks

I see the Sailun Terramax is only available up to 17" tires. I hope that changes by the time I'm ready to upgrade my Truck tires.......I need an 18" Tire.

You need to google Sailun Terramax 4S , and get on their website. They offer truck tires from 15"-20". My next truck tire will be the Terramax size 275/70/18 E rated ,which they offer. Friend had a set of 275/70/18 installed on his Superduty about a month ago, he's happy so far with them

During the summer when we are traveling in Idaho and Montana, I kind of watch trailer tires that the ranchers and horsey people are using on their stock trailers. The predominate tire is definitely Salium tires
