No wasted effort here. Discount tire was able to mount and balance the trailer tires. But, could not inflate them to more than 90 Psi. Also they damaged the bead of one of the new tires they removed, which I have already sold to a prospective buyer. I think the damaged tire will be fine for the purpose of the buyer, but, still disappointing. The lesson here is that Discount Tire, or Walmart, or possibly some other automotive tire shop, may struggle with the Sailun S637 tires, or other tires outside of the normal load range of cars and light trucks. Possibly, using a big rig tire shop may be a better option.

Maybe the OP will come back and explain the true meaning of the cryptic post. Everyone tried to define it's meaning except the OP. [emoticon]

At first in your "NOVEL" you said "He said their inflators only go to 90PSI with accuracy"

Now 3 posts back you said "But, could not inflate them to more than 90 Psi"

What is it?

I would believe the first post as their compressor stations are computer controlled for accuracy. I guarantee they can inflate to 110 by using a hand held pressure gauge as I know for a fact they sell and mount GY "G" tires that require 110psi for MAX capacity.

Still wondering why the US Made bearings and the Chinese tires.

Sorry for the poor wording. The tech at Discount Tire did say they could go higher with the manual gauge. To clarify on the bearings, I should have left out the US made comment. I will be installing Timkin bearings and races, although they may or may not be made in the US.

I think it must be that particular location. I've got several friends with G-rated tires on various trailers, and the local DTs have zero problems inflating them.

Next time just order your tires through Discount Tire. They'll match any online price including Walmarts. At least the ones by me will
