Just so you know, not all Sailuns are made in China. Saw a stack of 17.5" Sailuns at MORryde recently that were stamped "Made in Viet Nam", now I do agree that some will say that's the same as Made in China.

HI

Goodyear has a 7 year life on the G614 so they will repair the tire if it is not over 7 years old.

These are not over 7 years old by a couple of months. LOL

But as I stated both tires have been subject to and extreme trauma 5 years ago. The only chance I took was blowing a tire and only blew 1.

I have blown tire on Semi trailers many times and it is a none event. So the only chance I took was damaging a trailer with 100,000 miles on it and nearing the end of its useful life. So now I need to locate a fender but no other damage.

Goodyear has a 7 year life on the G614.

The two reaming tires will join the other 4 10 year old G614s on one of the ranch trailers and will be run until they blow out.

Great tires for Trailers

Most of you know many tires are made in China. I researched and found Goodyear Endurance one that is made in USA. Most Goodyear are made in China. I bought ST235 / 80 R16 123N E1 BSW. They are 10 ply rated.
I bought these six months ago and put them through a couple of tests. We went up hwy 101 in Northern California through hail, rain, freezing rain and snow last March. Just three weeks ago we visited Mt Rainer and Mt Lassen through 100 degree heat and 10,000 ft elevations.
We had these tires on a 1962 Streamline trailer I refurbished and put 8000 miles on them. No issues. Great tire

My G6 14's are now on a boat trailer and he was glad to get them.This same person put my OEM mission tires, remember them, that I replaced within the first year on my 06 3400 on a boat trailer and ran them till they wore out.

I think it has a lot to do with the weight. These trailers load the axles almost to their maximum.

whats the differance

what's the difference in how these first two tires are made ,to have different weight ratings Good Year G614 they are 14 ply but only 3850 lbs weight capacity 75 MPHspeed rating, Saluns S637 a 14 ply tire has a 4400 lbs weight rating couldn't find a speed rating. both in a 235/85R16 size. And not comparing at all just throwing it out there for the information the Good Year endurance USA made 235/85R16 10 Ply has a 3750 lbs weight rating 87 MPH speed rating

If not mistaken the Sailuns are speed rated at ....127mph..... yes I said 127 mph. I had read that info on another thread on this site but it wasn’t an “official” Sailun link that it was on.

Not quite 127 MPH. Actually 75 MPH - still faster than I drive.

Service Description: 132 L (hover over the "?" at the end and they translate 132L to something you can understand).

We did our first road trip of @ 7K miles with the missions that came OEM on our 06 3400 without a problem. This forum was full of mission failures and we decided not to tempt fate. The missions did well on a boat trailer and boat that weighed considerably less than the Montana.

Well i guess I can't get the Sailuns then! I prefer to tow at 128 mph.

Darn much too slow. You just can’t make any time at 127.
