“the truck shop told me they are heavy duty and...”

Picking tires on what you were told isn’t wise IMO. What RV weight..axle by axle...do you have loaded and wet? What does the RV manufacturer recommend? OME is a start too.

I got 4 Sailun tires on the rear of my motor home that I'm going to replace this year.
The reason is that they have been on for 11 years. They still look good, no cracks in side wall, have held the air all this time.

Have been on the ground in Florida for winters 5-6 months without being covered up.
I will be replacing them with the same brand.

That is my own experience with them.

I don't know what Walmart sells, but Sailun tires are very popular with the commercial trucking crowd and with full-timers on the other forums I'm on (mostly towables since that's the crowd I run with). I've not read of a Sailun failure on any of the forums. We ran the Sailun S637 load range G ST tires on our previous fifth wheel for 30,000 miles without a single issue. I just had the OEM tires removed from our new fifth wheel and replaced with the same Sailun S637 LRG ST tires. It's peace of mind for me.

Interesting thread. Never heard of this Chinese brand until now. I see the positive testimonials.

All I can say is that I HAVE experienced a front tire blow-out on a diesel pusher, and I never want to risk an unpleasant experience like that again. Taking Chinese-made tires out of the equation is my first-line of defense, regardless of testimonials.

RV tires are simply not a place to look for cost-savings, IMO, ESPECIALLY with higher gross weight vehicles. The risk is just not worth it, even WITH the bargain-basement prices.

The OTR trucking industry have whole-heartedly adopted Sailun tires (amongst others) and have over many millions of miles and proven them to be very durable and safe tires.

Not everything made in China is of low quality.

On our last MH we had a Michelin blow out, in the garage, while it was parked.

I've never owned a Sailun brand tire but based on the reviews and my own experience I'd take my chances with one of them before I'd buy another Michelin.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

I had a set on a gravel truck and they were great tires. The next set my boss put on Bridgestone and they did not last as well as the sailun's. We were quite surprised!
