I just bought some online direct from Goodyear for $257 each. Goodyear Commercial site. Plus $220 installed at the local Goodyear Commercial shop at the truck stop nearby. No shipping charges.

I know everybody's buying Sailuns but replacing one Chinese tire with another just doesn't sit well with me. Of course that cost me a couple of hundred dollars. Now it will probably turn out that the Goodyears are made in China too.

The warranty on the Goodyear’s makes them worth the money. They pay for damages to your RV if they blow.

IF....you return the carcass & THEY.....determine it was a faulty tire!
Not saying they won't, but not a guarantee.
I upgraded to 4 Sailun 17.5" tires w/ wheels for less than replacing 3 GY Gs & more than happy with the quality, ride & appearance of them.

I did the same as Danny at the Rally last year, after having a 4 1/2 year old G114 blow with no indication of problems. All 4 tires were running within a few PSI and Temps of each other until we heard the Shotgun blast. We were lucky and only lost the plastic fender shirt, which we got replacement from the Techs at the Rally.
Goodyear did supply a check for the replacement of the tire.

Had a spring hanger wet bolt break a few days ago. It caused the tires to touch which ground deep grooves into both of them. Luckily it happened just before we pulled into our campground for the night. I was able to have a mobile tech replace the bolt and I found one Sailun 16” tire in stock at Big O for $150 plus the mounting charge. Along with the spare we are able to continue traveling. Near time for me to replace the Westlakes anyway so I will do that after I have the suspension rechecked. We were very lucky not to be stuck on the side of the road.

What is the benefit of the 17.5 tire over the 16? Sorry if it’s a dumb question.

It's a Commercial grade tire with an "H" rating vs the "E", "F", or "G" rating of 16"

OK, so nothing other than a different load range.

Yes, Different load range.


Tire diameter is within 1/4" between 16" and 17.5". So your suspension height and overall height remains about the same. Technically it DOES NOT increase your weight rating. It gives you a higher safety margin on the carrying capacity of the tire alone.


Most 17.5" tires are available commercially and should be easier to find a replacement if you were to have a tire blowout on the road.

Check out the Sailun 17.5" H rated tires also, they are, in my opinion, as good a tire as GY at a much lower price.
Higher load range + more piece of mind about tire issues!
Add a good TPMS (TST 507) & tire worries are pretty much a thing of the past.

With all the stories about tire explosions, body damage, night time flat tires, etc. It’s always amusing when people try to save “a few bucks” on their tires & wheels. Isn’t there enough other things to worry about? What a place to squeeze a buck...

I couldn't agree more Mike. Spend big bucks on a huge 5th wheel then try and put on the cheapest tires, even worse on the TV or car, because your life is riding on that rubber

If referring to my comments about the Sailun tire prices I don't believe myself or any of several other RW owners running them were trying cheap out on tires when purchasing them. They came highly recommended by the former owner of Performance Trailer Braking, which is where I ordered mine as did other RW owners & a RW owner himself.
From my experience with the Sailun tires I'd stack them up against the over priced GYs as far quality & performance any day of the week.

In the past approx 5 years, I've read of more failures of GY G614 & G114 tires than I have Sailun.
By cheaping out, I'm referring to folks buying and installing off brand tires that no one has ever heard of.
I even joined the Sailun ranks this past summer after a GY G114 blow out.

I suspect that is because Goodyear has 10 times the number of tires on the road. Everyone is always comparing their experience against the premium product. Most people never have a blowout with a Goodyear product - including myself.

Not sure those with the early RWs, or any other brand of RV, that came with the GY Marathons would agree about not having blowouts with GYs.
The biggest advantage with buying the GYs is that, IF PROVEN BY GY to be a faulty tire, they will cover RV damages from a blowout, but you pay for that in the initial price of the tires.
