Heard some good and some not so good. Research was not close to Sailun. Was not worth the gamble to me.

I like the theory and think it could work nicely. Once I read 'increase payload' I was done. Nothing they can do can increase the payload and the statement is misleading. Some may actually believe it.

Have had a dually (one and done) I agree with you 100%. The only reason one is required is if needed for payload. I'd never go over payload above all else.

That dip should not be a problem. The new trucks have the stern high to begin with. As long as #1 the 5er is near level and #2 truck lights are not too high you are fine. Unlikely the truck is...

My HC arrived with Rainiers. I had the tire shop order fresh Sailun tires. The 5er was pulled 43 miles from the dealer to the tire shop. Tire shop gave me $30 for each of the nearly new Rainiers.

That new tire is LR E which is if no comparison to the Sailun LR G for most 5ers. Besides the Sailun is proven and less expensive. GY does not make a tire with the rep of Sailun at any price.

Company shows 235/8516 at 110 PSI 4400#. They state you can run the best on light wheels at 80 or anywhere in between there and 110 psi. My math still shows the diff at nearly 1000#, 4400-3450 = 950.
