I am going to buy a new set for my RAM 3500 SWB 4x4.

The Michelin Defenders will be on sale at Costo soon and I am tempted but I checked Walmart and they have the Sailun terramax in the same size (275/70/18) for a lot less. I know Sailun is getting a good rep for trailer tires but how about for truck tires?

Made in the USA vs China is a pretty easy decision, but obviously not for someone who chooses a truck Made in Mexico.

Michelins for me...

Your engine is made in Chihuahua - but that is not what I asked - I want to know how the Sailun tires are on trucks.

BAM! Can't believe you went there Fish! Nothing else on the line today eh?

To the OP's question, I'm not a Michelin fan, but I'd give them the nod over a less proven tire. At least you know the Michelins will start cracking in a few years and give you an excuse to replace them before they actually age out.

I have had excellent success with 3 sets of defenders including winter driving.

We have a couple guys on here that get on anyone that buys Sailun. So most don't want to say anything. To answer your question I run the Sailuns on my fifth wheel ,as many do. I also plan to run the Sailun Terramax, after a friend of mine ran them on Ford 350, and will buy them again. Same size as yours 275/70/18.They have the same quality as the S637's, which are the best G rated tire on the market. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the Sailun Terramax

Wouldn't the best bang for the buck be from a blowout? [emoticon]
