You are saying you bought F rated Sailuns, I am pretty sure they are G rated @ 110 psi .

You said , I quote " Mine were built in not China ". Whats that mean were they built in China , or were they built elsewhere ??

cummins2014, to be polite he could use a lesson in punctuation.

I don’t proclaim to be an expert on the subject but it simply makes no sense.

I had a blowout on a Sailun on our 5th. I replaced with Herculles. So far great.
I have Carlisle on a dual axle boat trailer and 2 utility trailers no issues. Had the Carlisles on a Montana 5th wheel no issues.
Sailun like other tire mfg has many different tire types...S637 is just one of them.
Even the S637 has 16"/17.5"/19.5" sizes so its important in reporting which Sailun size/load range product had a blowout.

Several years back one one member posted he had a Michelin XPS Rib blowout. However later we learned the tire was 6 years old and had 30k+ miles on it. But more importantly he ran the tire till it shredded down to the rim. No blow out ...just a run flat.
Some folks got upset about finally a XPS Rib blowout and there no different than a ST tire.

Makes a big difference when all the facts come out.


Last night I remembered I kept the original Sailun spare since it had less than 30 miles on it. I checked the sidewall and it has a date code code of 4316 and made in China. That would make it less than 4 years old when it blew.
The unknown variable is that we are the second owners, so no telling how the tires were maintained. I watch pressures pretty close and use a TST tire monitor.

I think it's a **** shoot. Goodyear, Sailun, Hercules, close your eyes and pick one.
We just got home from on the road...NASCAR at Kansas City and a few days in the Ozarks. We were parked/camped next to a big Newmar diesel that was towing a matching "stacker" type trailer. He had a mix of Goodyear and Sailun on the 3 trailer axles. He didn't like either of them, citing unusual wear patterns. Probably a good chance it was trailer axle issues.
