Due to a dozen different reasons related to politically contrived supply chain problems, good manufacturers suddenly moving from china to vietnam so they can turn a good brand into a bad one, unavailability in my size, etc, etc, I chose a set of four new Carlisle CSL 16 tires in ST235/80R16.

G Rated, 14 ply rated, 81 mph rated M, all steel body, and from what I read it is the highest load rated tire in the Carlisle RV trailer line.

Sailuns, even before the vietnam issues, were 75 mph speed rated L, so LETS SAY the CSL 16's are TECHNICALLY BETTER just for giggles. Tomato tomatto.


I'll be mounting them on a new set of Raceline RCL 935 B Defender TR wheels that are rated for lots of weight too because I apparently hate having money.

My 5er has a GVWR of 15,500 and a GAWR each axle 7,000.

Since I don't see much on the interwebinators about this tire, I'll post a review since I'll be putting 1,500 miles on them immediately. Hopefully the review will be "They're tires man. Why are we talking about tires so much?"

Got them mounted up today.

Sidewalls are as stiff as a drill sergeants neck.

They look great. Putting them on the road tomorrow.

OK. I ran the new Carlisle CSL 16s 550 miles at about 70-75 mph

I aired them up to the max 110 and they heated up and stayed under 120 psi for the whole trip. No issues. No wobble. I had two VERY tight turns where the trailer tires were just almost pivoting and there was no issue.

I am going to put about 1,000 miles on them in a week or so. Hopefully nothing to report again!!!

So far very pleased...

uhhhhnn...any ST tire can make those kind of miles.
Come back after 15k-18k miles or so and give us a report.
These newer ST load G all steel carcass tires are hands down better than the run of the mill load C/D/E poly carcass tires as far as long term use goes. I'spect those CSL Carlisle's will match other steel ply carcass load G tires.

Oh I hear you.

I'm just posting a play by play of getting some new trailer tires because Im a nerd like that... [emoticon]

I'll be putting about 2000 miles on them here shortly and hopefully have nothing again to report.

My main reason in posting was due to the lack of threads on the net about these tires and I was hoping to create some content that would be returned for other thru a search so they wont have to do so much legwork like I did, especially since Sailun did us the unfortunate favor of messing up their 2021 run of tires thus removing themselves from the favored position of being the easy button of the RV world for awhile
