Wait, what about the Goodyear Endurance , it’s has a stellar reputation one said, but how’s that possible , at 2 years old .

I agree Sailun is the only one for me , it TRULY has a stellar reputation

The Endurance is popular. However just about any brand tire that is two+ years old shouldn't show any assues yet. Hell many old Carlisle radial trail maypops for past years would last that long. Too early yet but I would bet they will have a better service record than the tires they replaced.
We saw this with the Maxxis ST8008 when they first came out. 3 to 5 years later as they accumulated miles and years of service they started coming up with issues.
The Sailuns 16" load G S637 has been around now in the trucking side, and recentley the rv industry, for over 10 years now. Right now there the holy grail for 16" load g tires for serious haulers...and even rv trailer owners. 10 year service record vs 2+ years service record. Make your own choices.

For 5.2k or lite loaded 6k axle the Bridgestone R238 LT235/85-16 E at 3042 lbs commercial grade all steel ply carcass would be my pick.

For a max loaded 6k axles or 7k axles the Sailun S637 in a ST235/80-16 G at 4080 lbs capacity.

For heavy loaded 7k and 8k axle the Sailun ST235/85-16 G at 4400 lbs capacity.
Both would be great choices for the job.

WE get these tire help requests all the time with no input what the trailers gvwr or axle ratings are...or the OEM tire sizes and load ranges.

Need a sticky for trailer tire requestion that has all the info so we could give the OP a better less cluttered choices.

Another hand up for Endurance...
close to3 years in production, really no issues reported, goodyear name behind as insurance, as they have been good at ponying up for repairs , and made in the USA...

and the other vote is the Saliun, greta reports all over, cheaper,

My experience analyzing tire returns for a major tire manufacturer says that it is the summer months that matter and that tire failures peak in the 3rd summer, but you get a good indication after the second summer. That means the Goodyear Endurance has experienced 3 summers with no reported non-road hazard failures.

The only thing I don't like about them is they are subject to rock mining, where a sharp rock will burrow all the way down to the cords. Most tires wont do this but mine have several places where I can see the silver cords after removing rocks.


Have you contacted GY about the rock issue? Just over two years on mine on boat trailer with no issue like that. In and out of gravel nearly every day in the Summer at boat launches.

I also tow at 70 where possible.

After having tire problems I ended moving up to G load range, Hartland tires from Discount Tires. Great tires and good price.


Return at 4 years or sooner to let us know how the Chinese Tires worked out.

Why? We don't even know what FW the OP has. Unless he's got a 15k+ rig, why not stick with a good E rated LT like a Michelin Rib or Bridgestone Duravis?

Lyle


A little searching of his posts shows
"We have an 09 Bighorn 3370" That model has a 14K GVWR. I agree on Sailun's for tires. Run them at 80-85 PSI.


Let's assume the RV has 20% pin that is 11,200# on the 4 tires, even less with a higher pin. So that is 2,800# per tire. WHY go to a "G" rated tire when an "E" with a stellar reputation has MORE than enough capacity in every 16" tire they offer?

When you are on the edge as your "E" is maxed out I can see going to a "G" as I did on our Avion Platinum.

I haven't contacted them.
FWIW, I'm not sure you can see the damage without getting a straight on view of them. I saw it when I took them all off for balancing.
Frankly, I don't want to deal with GY. They cheated me bad when I was a very young man and couldn't afford it. 30+ years later I stopped in to another GY with a nail in my tire and they tried to tell me it wasn't repairable (I knew better) and tried hard to sell me 4 new tires I didn't need. Took it to Les Schwab and they explained how it was well within the area they could repair. I got a couple more years of service out of that set of tires.
So I really have zero faith in GY and while I might get a new set of Endurance from them some day, I'll also look close at other options.

So what hasn't been discussed many, many times? A brand new subject is very rare. It's why forums tend to languish after a lot of years. Shoot, go to any auto forum, and you'll see the same thing, or any motorcycle forum, or race forum. Any forum that has lasted more than a couple years generally has the same questions asked and answered.

That's one of the nice things about the "Hide" function: you can easily ignore any post you don't want to read. Works a treat.
