Hello,


Just bought from simple tire and tire king installed the Terramax AT, and if any one wants to know if there any good, they seem to be well made. There actually quiet on the road even being an all terrain tire. Minimal balance and ride better than my Nexen tires that they replaced. Got them on sale.

Due to the reputation if the Sailun S637 ST on the campers last year I put the Terramaxx 775/70/18 on my 2012 F350 4x2. I have put about 30,000 miles on them and am VERY happy with the outcome not to mention they were only $640 out the door to include mounting, balance, and alignment too for set of 4. The way they currently look to the naked eye I should get about 50,000 miles before replacement.Quiet and smooth ride!

Why would you give any of your hard earned money to Chinese? Especially what’s happening now. I’d rather spend the extra money & buy AMERICAN like Goodyear. Screw the chinese

As of late, they have been a superior tire for half the price.

I did the same thing but only needed two for the truck. Was able to get them in two days from a local tire dealer in Bonita Springs Fla. With the new tires on the front traveled 1400 miles home. Handled great, tracked great. They do seem to be a little noisier than the Michelins I had replaced, but not bad at all . $315.51 out the door for the 2 tires mounted, balanced, on the vehicle, and old tires disposed of.

I usually agree and usually do, but I put so many miles on this truck now I can't see paying 40% more for the tires I've been running for 18 years now. I may in fact go back, but when the US brands now don't last nearly as long as they used to, I thought I would try these. It very well bite me, but it was worth a shot.

You got the hard earned money correct, and yes it is "MY" hard earned money. Its not so much the extra money for me, its the quality of the tire . I don't want Goodyear tires period, there reputation is terrible. If you can suggest another G rated tire made in the US "WITH" the same reputation ,and track record of the Sailun S637's for our fifth wheels feel free to do so.

Screw the Chinese, can you honestly tell me there is nothing you have bought that is not foreign made in China , or elsewhere. You know what they say about "Living in a glass house ,and throwing rocks"

This is twice you have posted your sentiments, everyone understand now how you feel .:bow:

for his truck, anywhere from 15 to 25% Chinese parts,
For his RV probably 20-30%...
Almost all his clothes,
5% of his food,
all of his electronics/cell phone/computing devices..... (including the one he used to post his comment)

so yeah he's throwing stones in a glass house..... He knows it too.

Yes, for sure on that. We get a few on here that get on their soapbox for whatever reasons on this tire thing. Its not the first thats gone off on the China made Sailuns. If there was a comparable tire made in the US that was even close to price ,and quality of the Sailun ,then that would be my first choice. As far as I know there is not .

You might want to change your attitude towards the Chinese, at least for the time being,read this morning they donated 1000 ventilators to New York .

From consumer reports!Complicating national pedigree further, manufacturers might not build all their models exclusively in any one country. The Goodyear tires we tested were built in Canada, Chile, Germany, and the U.S. Michelin tires were manufactured in Italy, Spain, and the U.S., but none came from France. And the tires we tested from Italian tire maker Pirelli were made in Mexico and Russia. Hard to find tires made only in the USA!!

But some sure have heartburn over the Sailuns being built in China . Its such a global economy now. My Ram truck is made in Mexico, don't hear any screaming about that , the Powerstroke 6.7 built in Mexico, and most likely Chinese parts on the motor.

Agreed!! My Ram was also made from parts all over the world! Sailuns will be my next set of tires, not because of country of origin, but because of the many favorable opinions of other folks that have put thousands of miles on them!

Some will cut off their nose to spite their face :) The quality of the tire escapes some ,too caught up in where its made wearing their China made jeans :D

I use Michelins. Got them at Costco. Two things to know about buying tires from Costco: 1) they don't do alignments and 2) they will not sell a tire that is not correct for your vehicle.

Because I have had blowouts on my 1 ton srw more than once. I had 2 blowouts on my Mobile Suites that cost me over $3000 each time. I have not had good experience with Goodyears.

I have been Rving for over 40 years. Living full time over 10 years.

I am only concerned with getting a quality product for my money.

This happened to my GY and I am not saying that it couldn't happen to any tire on the planet. A Georgia State Trooper was behind me and saw nothing in the roadway either and we were running 45mph. A total freak that's for sure. It was a driver's side tire on top of that. GY paid half of the cost of a new tire. When the new tire came in, it wasn't made here, plus was still $160 out of pocket.

Most RV'ers in the know have come to know the Sailuns ,and their quality. If a US made tire comes along that can produce the same reputation then that will be my choice. Sailun has been around for our Rv's now for several years , before that the only other real game in town it seemed for a G rated tire was the Goodyear G614 , they had a terrible reputation. Granted they have improved ,but they still have the reports of failure ,as where you just don't read about Sailuns , and any issues .

Yes we do get the skeptics, and of course the China made thing. We soon forget where some of the Goodyear's were made. I would buy a Goodyear in a second if I thought I was buying a better tire then the Sailun, but sadly they are not .

I never get an alignment with new tires. Total waste of money. If your tires are wearing evenly and the veh. drives fine why do you need it? I worked in a couple of shops where the alignment guys were crooks. They would lean on the car to throw the alignment off while it had the heads in place to make it look like it needed an alignment. More often than not the car or truck was worse off when they were done with it. In over 60 years of driving I can only remember getting 2 or 3 alignments. Never had a tire wear problem.

Each tire has an individual plant code on its sidewall that describes the actual plant location of its origin.

Michelin does not manufacture a trailer tire in diameters less than 17.5" and considers it a misapplication to use their LT tires to replace an original equipment ST tire.

I thought i was starting a loaded gun thread, but if anyone was considering the sailun truck tires the terramax at's are a good buy. I do have an update, I have driven 300 miles on them and the mold tits are still there so i think they will have a good life. and there a little louder on the pavement but you cant hear them inside with the windows closed so all good there and they do ride softer than the nexan tires they replaced.


Thanks

I have said no such thing in this tread.

Besides that, you have never provided sidewall information for the tires in question.

If the tire is steel cased the individual tire will describe the carcass as having steel cording.

All radial ST tires have steel belts which should not be confused with the casing materials.

If you would look a couple posts above ,you would see I directed it back to where it belonged . My bad !!. But a typical tire thread ,they usually go sideways :)

As far as Sailun goes, not much more to learn . They proved their quality over ,and over .

You actually posted in this forum; Tires, Montana Tires. It should have been posted in the; Tow Vehicles & Towing forum. The moderators did not move it so it became open game for where it's posted. IMO, you've let it ride too long in this forum and it should ride here to its conclusion.

You are correct as i didn't post in the correct forum, sorry. Maybe the title Sailun truck tires was not understood by some. Thanks for the correction.
