RE: Sailun Tires Question

I'm currently researching tires as well. I asked at Sailun at my local tire store and they recommended Carlisle over Sailun. They do sell both. Price was not a factor in my request but the Carlisles were $45/tire cheaper. That's CDN btw. I also saw that Goodyear has a new trailer tire but it was $100/tire compared with Carlisle $158 and Sailun $203. I got leery when I saw they were so inexpensive. I leaning towards the Carlisle. Any input is welcome! You need to research the two.. Sailun tires over Carlisle in a heart beat.. compare them side by side in weight, tread depth and thickness of sidewalks.. Sailun, ISO, TS16949 accredited, which means excellent Quality... Carlisle = don't know what Quality is Jim

RE: Sailun tires

Here is some information about the specs. Enjoy the reading CLICKY HERE thanks chevman As you can see it involves A LOT of information on your manufacturing and quality processes. When you've attained this accreditation, you've pretty much proven that you're manufacturing a high quality product. Jim

RE: Ram Payloads- Seriously|||

Ron, you are correct... Front is a 6K front axle.. truck loaded less 5er is 5500#, with 5er, I add 100# to the front axle=5600#, so I'm 400# under that axles weight rating. Thanks buddy, Jim

RE: Sailun tires

Here is some information about the specs. Enjoy the reading CLICKY HERE Jim indicated ISO/TS 16969. Typo? - Guess that should have been ISO/TS 16949 in the "enjoyable reading" link?? :@ Thanks buddy... it USE to be TS16969, till 1999, then re-written and became 16949.. I know all the criterium that is involved in the certication processing because we prepared for and had the audit every year..VERY THOURGH!! We passed certificationevery year I worked there, which was a little over 23 years. Anyone who achieves this certification is building a very high quality product. Jim

RE: Sailun Tires Question

I would use #2. ... it has more than enough weight rating.. and Sailun is a excellent tire with very good quality.. Your 5er has a GVW of 14K, the 4 tires in your #2 example can handle 16K plus... more than enough tire.. at 14K GVW for your 5er, your truck will handle at least 2800# of the trailer, pinweight.. Either is a great choice, but simpler replacement would be your #2 I prefer "designated LT tires.. at one time the Sailun tire readLT... but these tires, ST or not, are a great tire with great reviews.. You can't go wrong with these tires. Jim

RE: Ram Payloads- Seriously|||

Yeah they would Ron.. they just don't want to even hear about towing 15K and upward with a HDH or MDH.... they're IS no arguing with them or discussing it.. They ARE right, NEVER WRONG... Then they all gang up on you to where you just have to leave.. This is the majority... there are a handful or less that don't think they're smarter than you and will listen and agree on weights that the 1 ton dually can handle. On edit: I was told that FAWR was raised from 6K to 6.5K in 16 ?. My truck minus only the 5er was a total of 9440#. Drive axle. 3940# rated 9750. Steer axle. 5500# rated 6500 Across scales with 5er connected and loaded Steer axle. 5600... under FAWR by 900# Drive axle . 8200. Under FAWR by 1575# Gross weight 13,800# ( under GVWR of 14K by 200#) Trailer axle= 14,420# + 100# added to front axle from 5er + 4260# added to rear axle by 5er Pin weight. 4360#. Trailer axle weight 14,420+ pin weigh, 18,780 #( we're lighter than last time we weighed Will weigh again in Asheville GROSS WEIGHT is 28,220, 10,880 under trucks 39,100# GCWR. N Under all weight recommendations FAWR under by 900# RAWR under by 1550#

RE: Ram Payloads- Seriously|||

"They believe you need a DRW one ton to tow 12,000#. " You don't??? :B Escapees forum thinks you need MDT or HDH to tow 15K or more!! Some even say you need one to tow 12K!!! It's there for the research.. I disagree with them.. They're philosophy is they get the truck MUCH cheaper than a new or newer used 3500 Dually, though, by the time they've customized, or fixed one up to tow, buy the Smart car that I commonly see hauled around by the HDH, and you pay insurance and pay for both, can't use them to go most places and can be hard to enter and exit, I don't see the benefits, unless you're going to tow something REALLY heavy.. My 5er weighs in at 18,250# and I'm under all weights, even the hating GVWR RATING. I thing the 250/2500's are under rated as I believe the 3500 Dually is also.. I understand why..

RE: Ram Payloads- Seriously|||

3/4 ton diesels lack payload due to nothing but politics and taxes. The Power Wagon is a special beast and isn't purchased for payload. ^^^^ This is correct ^^^^^^^ Unfortunately with 2500 trucks you really have to sift through the numbers. To be badged as a 2500 the government limits the GVWR at 10,000 lbs. My RAM is a seriously heavy truck....every component underneath is massive. So, at 10K minus the truck weight there isn't much payload......technically. Now, if you break down the real numbers it's much different. The FAWR is 5,000 and the RAWR is 6,500. So, in real life that is 11,500 GVWR and about 3,500lbs avaialble on the rear axle. KJ Nail hit on the head right there !! AND that's not even considering that it's the same frame/axle/drivetrain ( the nit pickers will be along shortly on this statement....) as a 3500 dually. Tires and springs are the real limiting factors between the HD pickup models. The front axle rating on my truck is 6500#, RAWR is 9750#.. NOT the same as a 2500, 3500 Dually Axle weights are higher than on the 2500. SOOO, if you did what was illustrated by KJ, 6500 FAWR + 9750RAWR = 16,250# GVWR.....but not really... GVWR is 14,000#... GCWR, due to Aisin tranny and 4.10 is 39,100#... FAR from the ratings of the 2500.

RE: Rant about fulltimers

I think we need to define the definition of full timing. A full timer in my book Bis NOT a resident at any CG. but is one who has a working RV that travels the country. Agree, but we also plan to be at our property in WV and travel from there, then late fall and winter in TX, and travel from there. Jim

RE: Rant about fulltimers

I'm one of the guys that write those reviews from time to time. Full timers generally means people living in an RV in one spot, that's there home. They are very rude, have golf carts our the Ying yang, ND have buildings often attached to there campers.i have been to some where rigs haven't moved in 10 or 20 years. Maintenance on the trailer itself is often masked by new ports or decks added on. They have there own rules and don't care much for us weekend people. Everyone I camp with hates them equally as much as I do. You did an awfully lot of generalization on a lot of people. We are fulltiming and none of what you say is true about us, nor will it be... and in the last 10 months have met more like us than what you have bunched in as the norm.. A bit ugly, bias and sad. Many take great pride in their land, their camps/campsites and how they look.. We've been camping solid since 1975 and have met MANY MORE FRIENDLY people than those you've run into. I've seen sites like you speak of, but it's rare in our travels. maybe all your run ins have been locally where yo camp... we'll try to stay away from them.. just don't put all of us in the class of fulltimers you seem to be around.

RE: Dually or single rear wheel 3500 purchase advice please!

The option with rear air assist has same GVWR and RAWR as one without it. I love the 4.10, but 3.73 would be the best of both worlds. My 5er weights in at 18,250#, with a pinweight of 4250#... I'm under all my weight ratings..... truck tows this 5er great!! Jim

RE: Sailun tires

Don't know about Goodyear, but I like their G and H rated tires. Just the ones I know about. I agree with Chris also on his recommendation of tires in that weight rated range, they've proven themselves. Sailun produces a high quality tire with lots of great reviews and are priced super competively to make them quite desirable. Thank you Lantley for your kind words, Jim

RE: Sailun tires

We bought a 2018 chev with china tires. 500 miles later they were replaced. Just don't want china tires. chevman I felt the same way Larry, and still on almost any tire made in China, BUT, knowing what MY company goes through year after year to be TS 16869 accredited, and knowing Sailun tires has done the same thing, I would not feel bad at all in highly recommending Sailun tires to be used on TT's and 5ers. and when I need to replace mine, IF Sailun is still accredited, I'll include them on my short list. Can't speak to tires on an automobile. Jim

RE: Sailun tires

I spent the last 23 years of my career at Continental Automotive.. was in the manufacturing of ABS systems and the last 16 years manufacturing brake calipers.. Some of our customers are Volvo, Mercedes Benz. BMW, GMC, Ford, Chrysler, Fiat, VW, Mazzerati, Honda, Subaru etc( may have missed a couple), as you would well know, if we had recalls or failures with our product, brake calipers, it wouldn't take long before you'd be out of business. We received quite a few accolades from more than several of these manufacturers for our high quality product.. which speaks volumes on our quality, and the company is booming. There is a standard, an accreditation of one wants to have a great reputation for a great quality product that needs to be met if you want to compete world wide. It's ISO, TS16969 criteria. This is what a company tries to qualify for to prove there prouducton processes and quality controls process are very important, with safety being #1 of course.. You have auditors who come into your plant once a year and check out engineering processes, Training processes with everyone, from Plant manager to the worker, all training records, all machining and production processes, in our case, also plating processes AND ESPECIALLY QUALITY CONTROL CHECKS AND PROCESSES..It's carried out on all shifts with Supervisors, Quality Control Techs, Maintainence Techs and the operators.. questions asked randomly wherever the Auditor wants to go.. about assembly processes, quality processes, 5S, shop cleanliness and on.. VERY THOROUGH.. We have been TS 16969 accredited every year I worked there and IT IS A BIG DEAL.. Sailun tires has the exact same accreditation!! Back when we were having all the China made tire threads. Everyone, including myself were anti China made tires.. one day Sailun came up in a tire question, and I googled them and found out they met the same stringent audited crierium that my company also met... I was sold on them due to what I knew about TS 16969 requirements... and you HAVE TO EARN IT! I was promoting them before it was still the norm to condemn all China made tires.. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase Sailun tires as long as they have the TS 16969 accreditation... it speaks volumes for reliability and quality in a product. They produce a high quality tire at a very affordable price, making it a great pick for a TT or 5th wheel tire.

RE: Sailun tires

The ONLY reason I talked about Sailun tires and mentioned the 16" is because the OP was specific about what tire they wanted.. I agree with JIM, but again, OP was specific about a particular tire.. Seems to want to go up a size.. 16" XPS ribs would work and quite a few more for that matter... if only going to 16", nothing wrong with running your trailer on tires with a great reputation, as well as being reliable.. peace of mind is hard to put a price on. Jim

RE: Sailun tires

Sailuns makes a 16" tire also. S637.. you don't "have to go to a 17-17.5 wheel/ tire combo.. The 16" is more than enough tire to replace your 15" tire/ rim combo. Jim
