Just curious of experiences as thinking of going to these. My Sailun S637's with same G rated 14 ply 4400lb specs that came on my Fuzion 420 when new have not produced a failure in four years of use (five year old date code) but not very high mileage either (about 6,000) and the edge wear from tire scrub during turning has produced a ledge on both edges and reduced their contact patch a good amount. I have some friends running the same spec ST Hercules on heavy load work trailers with zero failures and a couple mid sized toy haulers but none are heavy triple axles. Have been told the sidewalls of the Hercules are more firm than other G rated so thus hoping they wont have as much turning scrub wear. Tough to move away from the Sailuns that have not really failed me but going to be putting more miles on the next set of tires so might be worth trying the Hercules.

Thanks, forgot to mention had found a couple threads searching including that one, but seems mostly bit lighter dual axle's that they have been on so far. Feedback that I can find in various places seems to be very favorable in general but still all seems to not be installed on the heaviest haulers.

Heavy triple axle trailers are hard on tire tread edges. To maximize life/spread wear -rotation is needed.

Triple axle trailers need the trailer frame parallel with ground(level)to prevent excess tire wear.
