Thumbs up Tires and wheels

If you want to upgrade your tires to Sailuns or your wheels Tredit tire will be doing that from their booth in the Vendor Building.

We wern't able to attend the rally this year because of health reasons but we live in Warsaw In so we are close enough that we were able to order a set Sailuns and pick them up at the rally. Bought a set of S637s ST235 /85R16. Like I have heard they are very heavy! I weighed one on our bathroom scale and it weighed 61 lbs. This may not be totally accurate since our scales tend to weigh a little heavy. Thank you Wagon Masters and Tredit

That's actually one way to tell a good trailer tire. The bombs don't weigh anywhere near that.

They are heavier. Just put a second set of Sailun tires on our rig. First set went five years with no tire issues. Unlike the past where Sailun tires were not common and not always easy to find, there is a much larger market now and they sell all kinds of tires. My tire dealer here in NC, and we live in the sticks, called his local wholesale tire supplier and had 4 tires delivered the next day.

There's a good reason for the extra weight. They are steel cased. The majority of ST tires with less load carrying ability are fabric cased - mostly polyester.

Any designated steel cased tire with the same size designation as a like sized fabric cased tire will carry the same load at the same PSI. It's all in the cording sizes and their tensile strength.

Quite often, steel cased tires are regrooveable. If so, that feature will be on the tire sidewall. That feature also adds to a tire's weight but not to it's load carrying ability.

The steel cased tire has a unique failure trait, the "zipper rupture".

"(A Zipper rupture is a circumferential rupture in the mid-sidewall of a steel-corded radial tire. These are particularly dangerous as they are unpredictable and often occur with little or no warning to alert the driver or tire service provider.)"
