My 2018 GK came with H rated Westlake tires from the factory. I didnít order it this way and the 2018 Brochure states 8,000 lb axles and H rated 17.5 inch tires are standard equipment.

Seriously donít be fooled. H rated or G rated? Check the speed rating of the tire. The Redwood provided Westlake tires at 17.5 inch are speed rated 62MPH. H&G are the load rating. Loads are important but sonisnsoeed rating. The same Sailuns are speed rated for 75 mph. Nice to think about when your rolling downhill.

The Westlake tires are only rated for 62 or 65 mph. The Sailuns are rated for 75 mph. I needed to replace one because of a spring breaking and the jack par stripping off the tread. The casing held until I was able to pull over. I bought a treplacement from for $150. Sailuns are manufactured in China, but by the only Chinese tire company that is ISO 14000 certified.

2500 miles on my sailuns now , l scaled it this last trip 13800 on the tires. No issues, pulled it over the worst roads in the northeast ( and trust me 80 east and west is really bad). set the cruise at 72 and didn't stop until I had burned 60 gallons of fuel, no heat build up in the tires (roughly 20* warmer then the road). They are the only cheap import tires I would buy , Goodyear 114 is my first choice if money isn't a concern.

My 2017 36RL, manufactured in late 2016, came with 16" Westlake "G" rated tires . They have an L speed rating which is 75 mph. You really need to look at the tire sidewall to see what was delivered with the unit.
I do plan to go with Sailuns when these need replacement. However so far so good with the Westlakes.
'17 Redwood 36RL for retirement "snow-birding" and travel! Me, wife and 2 small dogs.
