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


Since I just put four Sailuns from Vietnam on my rig, can you give me a specific referral as to where you got this info?

Thanks.

Several posters on the Grand Design forum have described tread separation with their Sailun tires purchased earlier this year and manufactured in Vietnam.

There have been a few on the Montana Forum, and I just encountered a loss of the inner third of tread on a 2 year old Sailun made in China, tire never lost air so we had no idea it happened until several days later. Needless to say, I'll be keeping a much closer watch on the other tires.

Sailun like other tire mfg has many different tire types...S637 is just one of them.
Even the S637 has 16"/17.5"/19.5" sizes so its important in reporting which Sailun size/load range product had a blowout.

Several years back one one member posted he had a Michelin XPS Rib blowout. However later we learned the tire was 6 years old and had 30k+ miles on it. But more importantly he ran the tire till it shredded down to the rim. No blow out ...just a run flat.
Some folks got upset about finally a XPS Rib blowout and there no different than a ST tire.

Makes a big difference when all the facts come out.

I would look at the Goodyear G614 it is a load range G tire.

It was a S637 215/75/17.5 LR H. The blowout happened in August 2020. I replaced the Sailuns in January 2021. The trailer is a 2018 Landmark built in 2017. I don't remember the tire build date or its country of origin. I do remember the tire build date was appropriate for the trailer build date.

I also have the sailun tires,they replaced,The goodyear endurance.
I have a 3 axle toy hauler 18,000 lbs
Mine were built in not China, they were built end of January 2021. They are 16"
And F rated @ at 110 lbs. I run only
90 psi as that's more than enough for my load.so far so good . Total miles so far
6,000 miles. They do ride harder than the goodyear but a much heavier tire.
