Guess I should have included this information from the beginning. The tires are ST235/80R16 and GL285T. It looks like these tires were manufactured in 2016 or 2017.

One tire dealer websites says their a all steel ply carcass which puts them in commercial grade tires like the Sailun S637 16" G tires. Check the tire and see if it has all steel carcass description. If they are I would run them. As all heavy tires like a G all steel tire run them at max sidewall pressures for best long term service.
Samson is a old brand mostly in farm and ranch country....small town tire stores....feed stores/etc around here anywayz. I have no idea who made them years back or today but we have some good 16" G load range all steel ply carcass tires like the Gladiator QR35-TR......Hercules H901....Samson GL285T all 16" that are popular on haulers websites for their heavy service trailers.

I doubt most folks know who the parent company is or can pronounce the parent companies name for Sailun S637 tires or other very good Asian rim countries ST/LT/P tires either.
However like made in Mexico Ram truck/6.7 Ford diesels who really cares .....whats important is how the product stands up to long term service.

Most of the "American sounding" names on tires are POS China Made tires plain and simple.
