"Cedar Creek weighing 11,700 wet"

So let's do some math. 11,700# minus 20% pin weight is 9,360# divided by 4 tires is 2,340#.

Why in the HE!! are some of you recommending "G" tires for such a light load?

Goodyear Endurance ST235/80R16 3,420# @ 80psi Load range "E".

ENEURANCE line has been on the market for a full 3 years now with a STELLAR record.

OP, what size tire is on your RV?

Any tire from China is junk, no other way to describe them. I put Michelin LT truck tires on my first 5th wheel and later on my current toy hauler (XPS Ribs). No tire problems in 8 years. No need to put 110 psi tires on your trailer as it doesn't weigh enuf to justify the higher pressure. Get quality, non-Chinese tires and you'll do fine.
What complete and utter nonsense.

Why is it nonsense? Agree no Ckina bombs after that weight is the main factor.

Sailun G rated tires are made in China. You will look long and hard to find any complaints about the thousands and thousands of them in use.

I won’t argue your comment but I certainly would never buy them since there are US Made good options.

Certainly overkill for the OP’s RV.

True but I believe Sailun tires are designed by an American based engineering firm, manufactured in China to be sold in markets outside of China only. Vastly different than the numerous China bomb mass market companies.

I went to the Sailuns at that weight for 2 reasons. 1 Bridgestone took the R-250 Duravis out of production. 2 I got 4 Sailuns for a price that would have only bought 3 R-238 Duravis's.
Time was I would have considered Goodyear tires, that time has passed.

My 17.5 GY g114 are about to age out. For more than half the price the Sailuns have at least as good a reputation for service and longevity as the GY. I'm going Sailun this Spring.

G rated tires on a 11,700# trailer? Talk about massive overkill. My trailer has an 11,500" GVWR and could have been optioned with passenger tires. I tow with 16" LRE tires and have around a 50% safety margin while towing at approximately 10,500#. I towed with Towmax tires (China bombs) for four seasons with zero issues. I'm currently running Goodyear Endurance. The tires tow the same, longevity and speed ratings are the only criteria I used.
