I bought my Sailun's when they their 15% off in mid July. The price the week before was $141.99 and the sale price with 15% discount was $148.99. After buying 5 tires and the exise tax added it came out to $135 a tire. Went to Les Schwab to see if they would mount tires and they said no.Going to go with Firestone at $20 a tire and can only bring in tires and not 5th wheel. They don't have the room to work on trailer. Bought tires from Simple Tire with free shipping and they were made 1618 only 4 months old. Can only take 2 tires at a time, not enough jacks.

I’ve been looking at this brand of tyre as well after seeing that they were available where I live.
Their web site states that a particular type of heavy duty wheel/rim is needed for the light truck Sailuns.
Can someone shed a light on the Facts of what can/can’t be fitted to the factory Keystone aluminium wheels, or if a wheel upgrade is also necessary.
My rig is a 16 HC 370BR.

Many thanks.

60 bucks but that was mounting only, can not find a single tire shop in my area to balance. One that mounted them said they could only "half" balance them.. whatever that mean

Your 16 HC should have wheels stamped 110 PSI on the back indicating they can handle the Sailun at that pressure. You will also need to make sure you have metal valve stems to handle the higher pressure. There is also the option of using Sailun but inflated to a lower pressure with a resulting lower load capacity.

If you have the level-up you can raise the whole rv and remove the tires.

Here are my cost about 30 days ago (as usual I miss the best deals): $163 each to my door from Tires-Easy.
Took to local Gateway Tire Shop and they mounted and balanced for $15 each.
I purchased new metal/high pressure stems for $6.95 each, they only kept the blown-out tire, I brought the old G614s home for possible farm use later.

Oz. See what your wheel says about weight. If the 3750 weight then it can be a 'G' rated tire.

G goes to 110psi.

You find the rating on inside of wheel.
