Well if you heard not so good, then they probably have issues, just wondering.

I too will stick to the Sailuns, and will most likely go with their Terramax AT on my next set of tires for my truck.

To my knowledge, the G rated Rainier is a new tire, time will tell how they hold up. I would not be in the same hurry to swap them out as you would with any brand E rated tire.

Guys Thank you so much for the education! This is my first fiver. Bought my 3711FL brand new last year. Had a major blowout 3rd time out. Stored indoors, probably, 1,000 to 1,500 miles on the tires. I always check and monitor tire pressure. Look at the tires before I take it out. Never knew how bad these China bombs were. Tore the whole side off the coach plus went through to the inside. Come to find out the tires had a mold date of 51/15. Never knew what that was. How can a brand new 18 Montana have tires 3 years old on them? I am just sick about this. Damm near caused a major accident on the highway during this blowout. It shook me up pretty bad. I will be adding a quality 'G' rated tire to the coach. Just not sure how to get everything fixed.

Thanks,
Gary

Sailun are a G rated tire, not E and have the best rep of all.

Agree, my point is if your rig comes with G rated tires you don't need to rush out and replace them as you would if it came with E rated tires.

Based on reputation and price Sailun is clearly a good way to go for replacement tires. I run Sailun.

Your new trailer may have been part of a big tire shuffle. Just about all RV trailer manufacturers/dealers have been scampering around trying to comply with the new RVIA recommendation for a 10% reserve load capacity for OE tires. You can request a tire serial number check from Keystone. You might just find that those tires were not the originals.
