Tires

Subject has been beaten to death I am sure, but best recommendation to get the goodyears from? G114, preferable with rims...

Replaced my GY G114s at last years Rally with Sailuns on new 17.5 rims. Sailun on a new rim was less than a bare G114.

Many 5th wheel forums have advocated getting Sailun tires over the more expensive G114’s to save money. Sailun is considered one of the better tire companies in China. Sailun’s are also made in Vietnam, whereas the G114’s are made in the USA. I’m sure I’ll get some backlash at saying this, but if you do further investigation, you’ll find that the biggest knock on Sailun’s is that they are softer and will tend to wear more. They are known as a third tier tire brand because they focus on price rather than quality and performance. I went with the G114 in a 17.5 aluminum cast rim. They are heavier and after over 15,000 miles show no real evidence of wear. They are H rated at 75 mph. I’ve also read that Goodyear stands behind their tires in case of failure. I’ll stick my money in confidence and known quality, warranty and something that is made in the USA when I can. I think you’re making the best choice. I purchased ours through a local dealership that matched best prices anywhere, plus offers full service.

I was planning on replacing my G114s with the same, but when one exploded on the way to last years Rally for no known cause I changed my mind and ordered the Sailuns on new rims that were delivered to the Rally Campground. I changed them out myself and can not say if the GY were heavier because both are really heavy. we've now got 7600 miles and no complaints and still look like new. Only time will tell, but some on the Montana Forum have already gone through as set of Sailuns and are on their second.

I've read on several forums about GY replacing the tire & repairing rv damaged in the event of blowouts. From speaking to some that have had the blowouts with the GY it's necessary that you gather as many of the tire remnants & the carcass to return to GY so they can determine if it was due to a tire defect or improper inflation or other lack of attention by the user before any repairs or replacement occurs, no carcass no warranty.
I had the GY 16" G rated from the factory that I replaced all 4 with the Sailun 17.5" Hs already mounted on aluminum wheels shipped to my location for less than the price of 3 of the GY Gs. So yes it was totally due to price, but when I sold the RW the Sailuns had between 6k to 10k & looked brand new.
I would have preferred the American made GYs, but at more than twice the price my budget wouldn't allow spending that difference for a name.

Iím on my second set of Sailun tires with complete satisfaction. They wear like steel and are rated for 75 mph speed. Interesting to note that my friend just took delivery of a new Montana fifth wheel which came from the factory with Sailun tires. Hard to understand why redwood continues to supply no name cheap tires which continue to have failures.
