on their dually? 235/80/17 figured if they were good enough for a trailer they must be good for the tow vehicle. Any real life experience?

Since I'm going to need a set of new tires I'd like to know about this also.

No but I just put on 6 new atturo trail blade a/t tires on my Ram 3500 dually. They were on sale at Americas Tire (Discount Tire everywhere other then the west) for $96 per tire! Had great reviews everywhere and with just about 1000 miles and about 500 towing my 16k loaded 5th wheel they are working well. It rained all day today pulling about 300 miles and they were great.
Time and millage will tell but so far they are a bargain!

BTW I have 2 year old Sailuns on my 5th wheel and they are going strong!!

Of course, you would want LT tires on the truck - not the STs we use on the trailers. Lots of folks over on the Grand Design and Escapees forums use the Sailun ST load range G tires on their fifth wheels and like them. I've only run into one person who used the Sailun LTs on their truck. He said they performed well and he got some crazy high miles out of them. A number of trucking companies use the Sailun commercial tires on the 18-wheelers, too. (I have Michelin Defenders on our truck, now.)

I put the Sailun Terramax At 4s tires on my truck and have over 9k mikes on them. Mostly daily driving with about 2k mikes towing a 13k 5th wheel. Decided to try them after 10k mikes on Sailun S637 trailer tires. Very happy with the truck tires. Quiet on road with good wet traction. Off road limited to dirt roads with no issues. Only negative is that for the same tire size as the OEM Michelin tires the Sailun has about 1” less tread width. Don’t know why, since they are the same size LT tire.

Overall, Great tire at a great price. Also extremely happy with the S637 trailer tires.

How about Bridgestone Duravis tires for your TV? They were mentioned by someone on here, and although I don't need tires at the present time, may consider them. The stock Firestones are not my favorites.

No experience with Sailun but I just put a set of Kumho Crugen HT51 LT tires on my truck. Nice tire so for and was a very good price and ratings were also very good. Have about 500 miles non towing and 2000 miles towing. No complaints so far. Also have the mountain peak for winter snow. Apparently a true 4 season tire.

I know I talked smack about them in a previous thread, but just noticed one of our 14klb work trailers has Sailuns.
It gets used almost daily, abused frequently and overloaded sometimes.
Tire pressure gets checked if it gets a flat, maybe....lol
Going strong on 4 original tires.
