There are many, many folks that have switched to Sailuns and putting many miles with no issues, other than a Road Hazard failure or two.

good year endurance have worked good for me.


Your best selection is to pick a brand with the higher ST225/75R15 LRE load capacity.

There are no 15" LT tires that qualify for replacement of your OE tires.

You may have a Open Range 373RBS with a 15500 gvwr. Most likely has 7k axles and hopefully 110 psi rated wheels..... so the Sailun S637 ST235/80-16" G at 4008 lbs is a excellent choice. Your getting a top of the heap commercial grade all steel ply carcass tire.

I agree, not a G rated tire out there better .

The big problem is finding a 15" trailer wheel that up to 110 psi and carry 3500 lbs.
Highest 15" I know is Tow-Master SS TD15225F 95 psi and 3150 load rating.

Otherwise I like my GY Endurance.

I've had the Endurance for over 2 years/25,000 miles with no drama so far, but starting out with only a 1/4" deep tread depth, it seems almost half worn out when it's brand new. I had to replace the front 2 at 20,000 miles due to scrubbing the outer tread, so the need to rotate them is mandatory.

Well here is what I have found out on cost for the Endurance.

Local tire shop here quoted me 177 a tire mounted and installed. But. I can order them from tire rack at 133 and free shipping and Hibdon will charge me 15 to mount and balance and 7 to break down and take old tires off.

I will probably go Tire Rack and Hibdons as it is cheaper,

Four tires that come off will become spares.

Perfect world and lots of free cash I would upgrade to 16's and LT. That is the best choice. Looking at the total cost of that now with recommendation of earlier poster local to me.

Thats seems the knock on those Goodyears, been reported before. It seems quality RV tires do better then those. Goodyear does have its history with poor performance.

The only good thing about those Endurance so far has been they are not having the history the other Goodyear RV tires have had with blowouts. The average RV owner will never get 20K on them, most likely just age out. . Better alternatives out there for a better mileage tire.

I am of the opinion that to many people change out perfectly good tires because of a name. I am not sure if we are just getting lazy and dont want to include tires as part of out trailer pretrip or what. ST stires or maybe any tire, but the show I was listining to said even the chinese tires have a life expextency of 6 to 9 years. I was looking at the tires on my 5th two weeks ago gtting ready for a trip and I noticed some weird wear on that one and then I noticed the teltale sidewall dimples of a tire starting to seperate. so I checked all the rest, no cracks in between the tread or anywhere else so I just changed the one. now this tire was on the trailer when I bought it new in 2016 so probably 5 years old and just one of the defects. my last trailer I went 10 years on the tires before I changed them out with no issues. the trailer before I went 8 years then traded it in. they were all "china bombs"
so even with the "off shore tires" if you include the tires in your daily checks, looking for cracks on the sidewall , inbetween the treads and keep the cold psi proper, you can probably get the max life out of them with out any other dammage.

would I like to buy sailun tires you bed, but they are pricy up here but not crazy. but I think the reason I would be buying them is for reduced rolling resistance and better tread life.

I check, and air up my tires before every trip, EVERY TRIP. To date I have had 3 catastrophic tire failures. Each and every one was on a tire in the beginning of it 4th year of service. they were not over loaded, and the PSI was exactly where is was supposed to be. Age killed them.

So now my tires come off and are replaced at the beginning of their 4th year. I will not run a tire that is more than 3 years old. And I buy the best. And still replace them before the 4th year starts. Changing a tire on the side of the road in 97 degree hear is no fun. Much easier to replace them.


I wonder if it is a difference in road material, do you drive mostly on ashfault or cement roads? In 35 years of towing rvs I have only had one blowout and that was on a 10 yer old tire, that blew when I hit a very very ugly railway crossing that I didnt notice in time. this last one was the only other that I noticed somthing wrong with douring my beging of season inspection and I changed it out before it could blow. and out of all my friends that tow, I dont know any of them that have had an issue. having said all that, because most tire places say the tire life on a rv tire is between 6-8 years, I plan on upgrading to sailuns at year 5 or 6, was going to do it now since I had to change out onut anyways but the budgit didnt allow for all 4 while I am doing renos on the house.
