I called GY just now. Even though they show the ratings for the tire at inflation rates above 80 lbs, they told me to contact the trailer manufacturer....that will be a waste of time so I guess now I have to look at Sailuns and then find someone who can or will install them.

You can get them at Walmart online and I'm sure they will install them at any Walmart tire shop or, if me, I would find a local tire guy and ask him. I can't imagine any shop turning down work.

I bought my Sailuns at Walmart online, delivered to my door, free shipping. Then took them to a local tire shop I deal with. I offered to buy from them, if they would price match, they did on my previous set ,but the wouldn't or couldn't on this set. They were more then happy to mount ,and balance them, and I reminded them I gave them the opportunity to sell me a set.

I agree ,can't see anyone turning down work , this shop certainly didn't.

Good move, great tires, and a very long wearing tire. That seems to be the knock on the Endurance, very poor performance on the heavier applications, very thin tread on them. Plus they can't meet the weight ratings for many fifth wheels .

All this mess with tire rating for 7k axles got me to switch to 17.5" wheels and sailun H rated tires. I have plenty of tire margin for 7k axles now haha.

I ordered Sailuns from Walmart in the 235 85 r16 size. Ordered them yesterday and they were delivered today for free. With all the big rigs out there,you would think GY or somebody in the USA would make a suitable tire. Now I have to get them to Discount Tire to mount and balance them. My trailer won't fit in their parking lot so I have to do them two at a time. They told me it was around $76.00 for all four...not bad.

About the same I paid for mounting ,and balancing . Walmart seems to be the best source right now for the Sailuns ,price delivery etc. Curious, whats the date code on them ?

Most people want the best quality ,and that would be Sailun . Plenty of quality US tires made in G or H rated [emoticon] , just curious what that plenty would be. I am not aware of many or any that would qualify as the same quality as Sailun .
