Was wondering what all of you are paying for mounting and balancing of your Sailuns when shipped to your installer? I checked with Firestone, and they said $20 per tire. I don't know whether that included disposal of old tires and shop supplies.

With as many of you who are buying Sailun tires for your rig I thought there would be better response on what you are paying your tire shops to install them.

If I am not mistaken, Mine cost $127+$35 to mount and road force balance. $648 total. Surprisingly, a local tire place had them in stock.

Discount Tire in Lake Havasu City AZ quoted $110.00 for all four including Luge Centric balancing.

I just got a quote from BigO. They want $847.56 for 4. That's tax and everything. Seems higher than what others are posting.

I bought my Sailuns from Big O in Rock Springs, WY last summer. They were $160.99 apiece including mounting and balancing (lug centric). The FET and Sales Tax took it to just over $700 out the door. I was on the road and didn't have time to shop around. The price did seem reasonable to me though given my situation. Now seeing SimpleTire selling them for $120 - $150 including FET and Sales Tax ensures I will replace mine with Sailuns from them when the time comes.

If I'm not mistaken at Discount Tire here in the DFW area I paid just under $20 mount and balance and new steel stems. Call Discount and ask them.

I have never heard anything about Sailuns tires. From reading your comments, it sounds like they are popular for RVís.

Would someone please tell me why Sailuns tires are so good. Thanks!!

They last and do not go boom. And they are cheap.

I have been watching folks using these tires for the last 3 yrs. Not a single reported failure. 1/3 the cost of the goodyear G614, sort of gold standard trailer tire.

I had Costco switch mine , $17 per tire which included balancing and nitrogen fill. Bolt in metal valve stems were $8-10 each, not sure on the valve stems.

I paid $210 to have four mounted and balanced. It was very high by comparison to other posters' costs. I had my local diesel shop do it as they were partnered with simpletire.com. It took them about 1-1/2 hours even using the lug-centric adapter, because they couldn't get them balanced with metal weights. I paid for the beads and that jacked up the price. Still, I'm completely satisfied with Sailuns.

I bought my Sailun's when they their 15% off in mid July. The price the week before was $141.99 and the sale price with 15% discount was $148.99. After buying 5 tires and the exise tax added it came out to $135 a tire. Went to Les Schwab to see if they would mount tires and they said no.Going to go with Firestone at $20 a tire and can only bring in tires and not 5th wheel. They don't have the room to work on trailer. Bought tires from Simple Tire with free shipping and they were made 1618 only 4 months old. Can only take 2 tires at a time, not enough jacks.

I’ve been looking at this brand of tyre as well after seeing that they were available where I live.
Their web site states that a particular type of heavy duty wheel/rim is needed for the light truck Sailuns.
Can someone shed a light on the Facts of what can/can’t be fitted to the factory Keystone aluminium wheels, or if a wheel upgrade is also necessary.
My rig is a 16 HC 370BR.

Many thanks.

60 bucks but that was mounting only, can not find a single tire shop in my area to balance. One that mounted them said they could only "half" balance them.. whatever that mean

Your 16 HC should have wheels stamped 110 PSI on the back indicating they can handle the Sailun at that pressure. You will also need to make sure you have metal valve stems to handle the higher pressure. There is also the option of using Sailun but inflated to a lower pressure with a resulting lower load capacity.

If you have the level-up you can raise the whole rv and remove the tires.

Here are my cost about 30 days ago (as usual I miss the best deals): $163 each to my door from Tires-Easy.
Took to local Gateway Tire Shop and they mounted and balanced for $15 each.
I purchased new metal/high pressure stems for $6.95 each, they only kept the blown-out tire, I brought the old G614s home for possible farm use later.

Oz. See what your wheel says about weight. If the 3750 weight then it can be a 'G' rated tire.

G goes to 110psi.

You find the rating on inside of wheel.
