The Trailer King RST+ tires my 5er came with are ST235/80R16 which is a F load rating.

The fact that they are factory tires makes me nervous. And the fact that they are F rated makes me nervous.

Sailuns are apparently bad now from Vietnam, at least this batch.

Only thing my Discount Tire can get in my size is a Carlisle 14 ply G rated.

Am I moving up with this swap or does Carlisle have a bad rap?

With 16" tires you should be able to find an LT tire that would be as good if not better than an ST. Just make sure it has the load rating you need.

Many people have good things to say about the Carlisle HD. If you can't find anything else I wouldn't be afraid to buy them.

I put the Carlisle HD on one travel trailer, and it worked fine....no problems.

I switched out my Trailer Kings for Carlisles. It was a good decision. Great tires.

Is discount tire the only place you can buy tires?

You might look around - what is the weight of your trailer?

Just because a couple people report a bad batch of Sailun tires, doesn't mean all Sailun tires are now bad. I think the consensus is that that is the best G rated tire for the money. The other option being Good Year.

I believe that Carlisles are on the OK list, but you can probably get a better tire.

We recently moved from Florida to north Georgia taking almost a year of back and forth travel. I rented 5 different Uhaul trailers and everyone had Carlisle tires installed.

Well, I just put some Carlisle Radial Trail HD’s on my flatbed, so I hope they’re good tires! [emoticon]

Actually, I’m pretty sure they are. The trailer came with Carlisle bias ply’s and they were fine. All the reviews I could find convinced me to stick with the brand.
