I had a set on my Monty am switching them out for Salians. I’ve had these on for two years and noticed they are separating between the treads. Not going to wait till I have a blowout. I just got Salians for $129.00 plus FET and free shipping from simple tire that’s with 10% off. Total was $552.40.Discount tire said they will mount them for me.

I have not had good experience with factory tires in the past with one failure that caused quite a bit of damage. other times found bubbles on them before they failed. last 5th wheel we bought went with the factory ones for a bout 6 months (several 1,000 miles traveled) found a bubble on one so replaced all with Walmart tires good year marathons (was sunday only place open) had a failure on one of them less than 3 months lucky minimum damage that I repaired (maybe 4,000). asked the dealer if he could put Michelins I had put some on the last trailer and ran for several thousands of miles but was told Michelin does not make trailer tires. true of not

Just buy a set of Sailun and the only thing you need to do is maintain psi.

Sailun S637s and Disc brakes - best upgrades for my money and safety.

I switched to Goodyear G614 RST TIRES, after blowing 5 China bombs. The G614 is made for 5th wheels. Never have to worry about blowouts again.

Most are going to Sailun S637 as they have a better reputation than the G614 at half the cost. Also, OEM on new Montanas.

Yikes, just bought new set of G614s today. I’ll consider that new OEM Tire in three or four years. We are full time.

The “Sailun” tires are made in China. Considering not only our tariff issues going on, in the event like most things from China, their general product quality hasn’t improved, the warranty replacement and store location will certainly be a factor when on the road. “We’ve had great performance and longevity with the Good Year G614’s” and Good Year stands behind their products nationwide...

it is amazing to me that these threads keep going on about what tire to buy. the choices seem sooooo clear; either the G614 or the Saliun tire.



of course there are other tires but do you really want to try something else?


Over 6 pages saying the same thing. Probably it is time for the web administrator to lock this thread.

I'll stay with Sailun as I prefer not to have problems. The 614 is a good tire, Sailun just has fewer complaints. If prices go up they are unlikely to more than double to equal 614 price. Quality? I'll happily pay for it and Sailun is above reproach. My dealer gets them overnight like 614s. To each their own comfort level.
