Michelin nor Bridgestone makes a 16" load G tire @ 4080-4400 lbs capacity ....apples vs oranges.

Are the Sailun tires made with slave labor like so many Chinese products?
Personally, I am pleased with Michelin and BFG tires.
Just my opinion and this is America where we free.
So you don't shop at Walmart Lowes, Home Depot or Menards?

Absolutely, in fact you get pictures of the slave quarters when you buy a tire. If you buy 4 tires you get get a picture of the slaves and their families. If you buy 6 tires you get all of that plus a tuft of hair from the slave that made your tires.

GY makes E, G and H rated tires right here in the USA all with great track records.

YES GY "G" tires had issues around 12 years ago but since have a great record.

YES the Sailun tires have a good record also and YES they cost less. I personally buy US MADE GY's for my trailer tires and US Made Michelins for my truck.

GY will replace defective tires and WILL take care of any damaged caused if it's not from road hazard.

Free Country, but don't cry when a Foreign Company takes your job.

Bring it on, oh you use a Chinese made phone, do I have a choice??? Apple will be making phones here and that is what I will buy.

I have bout literally over 10k worth of US Made Bose products, could have bought Chinese.

OH your truck is assembled in Mexico, yup but it's mostly assembled with US components. RAM will be moving back to the US with the new 5th gen trucks. My alternative??? OH yea Ford is Assembled in the US with a Mexican MADE diesel engine.

I was by a NTB in Houston checking on the G rated Sailun tires for my trailer. They showed no price and when they called the warehouse to check on them, they said all of the Sailun tires had been returned to the distributor....no reason why. Could thsi be a quality issue or possible the trade tariffs with China.

In any case, I guess, I'll forgo looking farther for Sailun tires.

Simple tire has them on their web page, just search for Sailun, then pick the S637 from the list on the right side of the list, left side has the 16's, right side list the 17.5 and others.

Just thinking....kind of ironic that we tend to think "Made in America" good, " made in China" bad.

All the while there is no question about the terrible quality of our American made trailers in these forms.
I repair them and what I find when I remove the bottom of trailers would scare you all.
What you don't see....doesn't hurt you I guess.
