I suggest you keep calling till you find one. When I bought mine from simpletire, there were two local shops in my area they had "partnered" with for installation. I placed my order and tires were drop-shipped to the installer, which had the right equipment and called me to set-up the day to come in.

Any idea or help form you guys who did follow that procedure how to find or source a shop which can do it?

Is it better to look out for a semi workshop?

Thanks,
Mike
just a quick info if someone will have to search again for a tire shop in Atlanta...

Contractor Tires, Marietta, GA https://www.contractorstire.com/ are doing RV Trailer Tire Changes and Balancing.
I brought the tires and they charged me 20$ per tire incl. balancing.

All others I've asked refused to change tires on our 5th wheel.

Mike

I need to drop it down, and check it out. Most likely I'll go buy another Sailun. I probably should of just got 5 of them to start with. Still would of put me under $800 for a set of 5

Are the Sailunís that much higher then the stock Rainer Tires that came on our unit? 235/80/16?

I have roughly 4,000 miles on them since we bought it on 2/15/18 and I check them before each trip but all this talk about them Rainer being crap worries me.

Most likely I will switch to the Sailunís before our Disney trip in December by just towed from NJ to Florida and Back with no issues on stock tires, keep them at 110psi cold

I found the 235/85/16 Sailun .9" taller on the spec sheet. The Sailun 235/80/16 I thought was almost the same.
I took the 5er strait from the dealer to the tire shop to have the Sailun tires installed, 43 miles. The bill was under $800 and he gave me $30 for each of the 5 Rainier tires.

Seems people are generally satisfied with their Sailun S637 tires, at least the 16" G rated tires. Anybody out there using the H rated version? What has been your experience with them vs the GY 114 H tire?

Recent shipments of Montana and HC 5ers have arrived with 16" wheels rated to 110# psi which supports 16" Sailun tires. The 235/80/16 tires support 4080# each and the 235/85/16 support 4400# each. After taking the PW into consideration (in most cases without) these 5ers do not have the weight coming close to those numbers. My 5er loaded is at 14,000 minus 2900 PW leaving 11,100 on the tires rated to support 17,600. What is to be gained when there have been zero reported failures of the G rated is what I considered when having 235/85/16 tires installed.

Yes, the rims should be rated for 110 PSI, on the inside of the rim, the MAX PSI rating will be stamped in them, says 110

I made that mistake, I bought my sailuns and found out after mounting them that my rims were rated 80 PSI. I'm still running the sailuns, at 90 PSI?? About 5000 miles on them okay so far.

oops, I just read this again., you have the same model I USED to have LOL my mistake. Make sure you check the rims first for the stamp to see their ratings, I know the newer Montana have the 100 PSI rims, but the older ones have the 80 PSI rims, make sure you check that first.. If yours are a five bolt tire, they are more than likely 80 PSI, most 110 PSI rims are 8 bolt in that size range,

can you run the s637 tire at 80 lbs safely if that's all your rims are rated?

The very short answer is yes you can.

That would be a question for the manufacturer. My guess knowing how tire pressure and tires work I would assume that it is ok.

There is a load chart from the manufacturer, it has been previously posted on this site.

On previous campers years ago, before Sailun, I ran Carlisle LR F at 90 on wheels rated at 80 without a problem ~~ but not anyone else suggesting it.
