I have had Tire Pro match a great online price online for a tonneau cover, plus they installed it. Online I would have had to install.

Simpletire would have to be a lot cheaper for me to even consider them, and they are not.

I think its better to give the local business a chance, pretty soon online will run everyone out of business.

I used simpletire as we don't have a local tire store that sells Sailun trailer tires in southern AZ. I tried to give discount tire my business but they were happy to install my sailun.

My 1st set was 4 1/2 years old and had about 20,000 miles on them. I wasn't planning on getting another set till the fall but my utility trailer needed tires now so i installed the old sailuns on the utility trailer and bought a new set for the rv. I have NO complaints at all with the sailuns except they are tougher than the wheels on account i had 2 wheels crack in the last 2 years so i replaced all the wheels. This goes to show you how tough the tires are and how weak the wheels are.These tires are cheaper than when i bought my first set on account of the 10% off and free shipping which saves you about 30.00 per tire not counting the sales tax savings which is another 8.00 or so, depending on your states sales tax rate.

Thanks,good to hear. Got 4 years before I need to replace my Sailuns.I go 6 years.

Thats a great price, when I bought mine locally said ,and done was just a little cheaper then Simpletire, after mounting ,and balancing. Now unless the price locally has gone down it looks to be about $60-70 cheaper depending on mounting ,and balancing after ordering.

I'll look online the next time around ,but have a feeling I can do just as well locally with a price match ,as before. Less hassle buying locally. What is the cost for mounting ,and balancing taking them to a tire shop.

I had mine mounted and balanced for 15.00 each. I kept 3 of the tires for my utility trailer and one for my 2nd spare on the rv . If you plan on having the old tires recycled then it will cost for that. I paid 4.00 each for 3 tires on my utility trailer for tire shop to dispose of them. I know most people balance there tires as i do but i had the weights installed on both sides of the wheels so they would balance more accurately. I now have aluminum wheels with no paint on them so my weights didn't show up much.As for cost, the independent tire dealer that installed mine asked how much i paid and i told him 539.59 and he said he couldn't even buy then at his cost for that price.

Ordered 5 Sailun S637's from SimpleTire on Monday night, and had them delivered before 10am this morning. $643.86 total (+ free shipping) using the 10% off code. Mulled over buying these or the G614's for at least a month, and after reading all of your testimonials and considering the overall cost, I was finally sold on these tires. It is a VERY stout tire, and looking forward to getting them installed for our trip to Lake Havasu in two weeks. Thank you all for the info and recommendations!!

thank everyone for there input. I have decided on the sailun s637t tire in the proper size. after checking the current tire on my 2005 3650 rk,i found them to be uniroyal(which doesn't creat confidence) a lt 23585 r16. load rating of e. to me that sounds rather low for a trailer this size and weight.please respond with any thoughts or advice.send me your thoughts.

With the sailun tires rated a G, this gives you 4400 pound capacity compared to the E rated tires at slightly over 3,000 pounds. I have the 235x85x16 tires and you will be very happy and pleased with there tuffness and performance.You can not buy any better tire for the price.
