Sailuns are On

We bought our Montana HC 353RL in July 2015 and they came with the infamous Trailer King tires. I have monitored the tires before, during and after each trip and read some of the stories others have had about blowouts. I bought a tire monitoring system and always thought it a good investment. We will be leaving for Myrtle Beach in three weeks and thought it about time to upgrade to the Sailuns S637 before the trip.

The auto shop I use is a little cramped and not condusive to me taking the RV to them, so I opted to remove one side at a time and did it over two days. The whole process was actually very easy and the S637's are one and ready to travel.

On my 2nd set and have had very good luck with them. I jacked up my whole trailer and removed all four at the same time and took to tire shop for install. I had the same wheels as you and had 2 of them crack so replaced them with Hi-Spec wheels. Hope you have many trouble free miles. Just don't forget to retorque a couple of times when you make your trip. Safe Travels.

Speaking of torque, what is the torque spec for these RV’s?

Keystone says 110-120. This is for 1/2'' studs which is what you have. I have the 9/16'' studs because of 8k rotors so i torque at 140 pounds.

Nice insurance putting on the Sailuns, I expect they should do good for your travels.
