Interesting comment on rock grabbing. Every time I tow my boat I launch up and down a gravel ramp. I have never noticed any rock grabbing.

Sailun has a tie pressure chart for each tire showing capacity at different psi.


In the reference below you’ll find the Sailun published trailer tire load/inflation chart. Not all ST tire sizes are listed. However, it does list the new 13” radial LRD.

No such thing as overkill when it comes to camper tires in my opinion.

You're certainly welcome to your opinion, but it's a fact, not opinion, that tires heavier than needed can contribute to a very harsh ride.

If you’re looking for a cost effective alternative, the Bridgestone Duravis R500 HD are about the toughest non steel carcass tire out there, mine have two summers and around 24000km’s on them without issue, they replaced cracking 4 year old BFG commercial T/As.

But, But, what about inflation charts, I won't go into what A Sailun rep told me, but you can sure air them down . I talked in length to him about how to run these G rated 110 psi tires, so no IMO you don't have to beat the HE!! out of your RV.

I am no where near the 4400 lb rating of my Sailuns, although I don't air them down to what I could ,I get a very good ride, nothing jumbled up in the fifth wheel , no screws coming loose etc. After replacing the shear springs in the MorRyde suspension it rides even better .
