I just had to replace my trailer tires (Maxxis). Had a tread separation that my TPMS did warn me with a drop in pressure from 80 psi to 65 psi.

I had already decided my next set of tires would be good Year Endurance.

I was just south of Salt Lake city. It was a Sunday so I checked in to an RV park and started looking for tires early Monday Morning. Called Big O to see if they had any Endurance tires. They checked their warehouse and all local Big O stores with no luck. Then checked with a Good Year dealer and they could not find a set of Endurance in any of their local dealers and their warehouses in Salt Lake, Denver and Reno.

So I called a Discount Tire which was less than a mile from the RV court I was in. They said they had 29 Endurance tires so I corrected him said you now have 25 tires. They installed a new set in less than 1 hour and I was back on the road before 11:00 am.


NICE!!! That's how it should be. You will love them.

First time ever with ST's on my 5W and not LT's. This has a rating equal to the Goodyear. Every rancher in the area is running these and ranchers are not easy on their equipment they spend more time off road than on so the tires get a workout way more than the average RV.

What “rating” are you referring to?

You are obviously not aware of Sailun tires.
They have reinvigorated the 16" and larger towable RV tire market.

I love the Sailun tires I had on the last 5th wheel, but there do seem to be some issues with the new Sailun made in Vietnam, There have been several failures with tires made this year in Vietnam. So I'm withholding judgement for a while as to which tire I will get next.

Yup, there was a thread on the Montana Owners Forum about the recent Sailun S637's made in Vietnam. They had some tread separation , and partial loss of tread, no blowouts or damage that I read . Still a concern , time will tell.

Might have to take our chances with Goodyear. [emoticon]

Sailun have a good reputation, but when an American alternative is available or from a FREE Country they will get my money every time.

Not only will you take your chances with Goodyear.
You will pay signicantly more $$$ to take your chances with Goodyear.

Please give me ONE example where the GY ENDURANCE has failed that is NOT road hazard related.

Personally have no issue paying for quality, always have and always will.
