IMO G-rated tires are unnecessary with your application. As was mentioned by JIMLIN, all the reasons he noted work on your trailer.

I have a similarly equipped 5th wheel, and I put Sailun tires on it about 7 years ago. But when I replace them, I may go to LT tires as I have weighed each wheel and I only have a max of 2500 lbs. on two wheels. However I may stick with the Sailun due to them being cheaper than new LT tires. Go figure.

The side of the tire will have a date code on it, so no need to guess at age...but most likely they are the original tires, so 6-7yrs old. Yes, that's time to be looking at new tires.

When you calculated the load ratings, did you do it based on the GVWR or the GVWR minus the hitch weight. It's fine if you want to upgrade the tires but if you have excess capacity, that's should be fine.


I did not calculate the pin weight. That completely slipped my mind. If I subtract the 3,400lb of hitch weight, I guess I have plenty of capacity left on each of the E-rated tires.

3,400 lbs. hitch weight could be a bit light too. You could be looking at 3,600-4,000 lbs. hitch weight. Depends on how much stuff you carry in the garage. Toyhaulers tend to be front heavy so when weight is added to the garage, the hitch doesn't get too light.

Sailuns vs. Good Year Endurance, which is better? I assume Sailuns are cheaper. In the market myself but not as concerned about weight since not a toy hauler anymore

Both are getting excellent reviews. With what I have read your paying for the good year name and the price was not significant between them, most buying all new can afford either brand. I have run LT's on all my prior 5W's including my currant. Flat on one LT and the other where getting to the end, so I went Sailuns to see if they meet their reputation, plus the dealer had them in stock and had to order the Good Years. I have only had them on a short time but so far, high winds and 6o miles of snow cover road and the 5W tracked great.

Run LT tires no matter what you go with.

Cheap and tires are not a good combination when it comes to tires.

Agree on the price, collateral damage will eat up any possible savings. You were a huge proponent of Michelin Ribs, correct? Still feel the same? I have an EXCELLENT tire store I've traded with for 50 years so I'm going to have a chat with my buddies at Western Tire.

We had a tripple axle toy hauler for 8 years. I had a lot of problems with tires not holding up until I changed over to the GoodYear tires from Discount Tire. They are speed rated at 81 MPH and showed impressive wear resistance. These tires were 15". Our new unit has has 16" tires and G rated but it is only two axles. Just giving my experience with the GoodYears and it was great. Also from my experience with other tires we saw the tire blow out and belts eat a hole through the floor, a tire blow out and blow the fender off the trailer and hit a piece of rebar from a broken curb in a parking lot take out two of the three tires when I only had one spare.

I still run the Ribs, but only because Michelin pro rates them so well every time I get some ozone cracking.
I get it every 2-3 years and then after year 4, it is so bad I am not comfortable.
Michelin will give me between 40-65% proration so it is hard to start over with a different brand.

I will only run LT tires, but some of my buddies run the G rated tires, ST, that are out there.
Sailun is one and Hercules is another.
They have blow outs.
They blame them that is because they sit in the sun in Phoenix.
I agree that is not the best, but these are tires that are only 1-2 years old. Even sitting in the sun, they shouldn't be blowing out that soon.
