No one asked for my $0.02 worth but if the RVIA really wants to help the industry they would start verifying that the junk coming onshore from the far easy actually met the ratings and are built to standards. Having delt with some companies in that part of the world for over 20 years, I don't trust a one of them.

I disagree, the US is not the only ones that can build a quality product, there is quality products built all over the world ,as well as junk ,no different here ,where there is junk built also .

This thread wont last long, this has nothing to do where a tire is made ,but tire ratings .

Doesn't sailsun start their sizes with a 16" rim? that kind of puts me out if true

Although Sailun is not the subject here , but tire ratings, no I believe for RV ‘s Sailun tires are only available in 16 “ or bigger

This thread is about tire ratings ,nothing to do with where it’s made . I found it interesting about these weight rating . But now that you brought it up , let’s take Sailun made in China , and it’s ratings . At one time the Sailun S637 were rated for 3750, and was a LT tire , now It’s a ST and rated for 4080 or 4400 depending on size 80’s or 85’s . Was there a change in design , doubtful . It’s still a quality tire regardless of where it’s made .

Sailun , Goodyear and who knows who else IMO have inflated their ratings to fit the axle ratings . The G614 has remained the same , somewhat surprised considering the numbers Goodyear put their E rated Endurance at . I think Goodyear wanted to get back in the game with the Endurance , they certainly lost a lot of the market when the Sailuns come along .

Take Westlakes for example coming on the new Bighorns . No more G614’s on the Montana fifth wheels . Haven’t checked lately but I would suspect Sailun or Westlake on the Montana fifth wheels , yes there is the cost factor , but arguably better tires , but more importantly right or wrong they have the needed weight ratings . So far Goodyear does not in a G rated tire and just one in the E rating , and not sure where that tire would be used in a OE application requiring a 6.5 wheel , where most of these fifth wheels with 7k axles come with 6” wide wheels .
