From everything I have read or heard, Sailun makes good, really good tires. Over the years there seems to be a continuing war over "China Bombs". I have always believed that it is the company who stands behind the tire that is more important than where it is made. Here is a case in point.

Place of Manufacture

So, am I missing something? After reading through more of this link I saw where most major manufactures produce tires in China. Michelin is one.

Not likely, there were tons on the roads with zero failures, until the Vietnam made ones showed up. Heck they were even coming as OEM on some trailers. Lots of people have had them in the ten years they've been popular, and the failures are basically non-existent.


Agree; I've had mine for almost 7 years now and they still look like new. There will be another set going on when these ones are done in another year or two.


Is this on a truck or trailer? If truck how many miles are on them. I need a new set for my truck next year and I will not be suckered into Michelins like last time. And my tires never go off road.

They're S637's on my fiver. Sailun does make some decent looking truck tires, though.

I’ll take a look at those Sailun truck tires when the time comes , a friend ran a set , liked them , but traded trucks before they wore out , so don’t have a real picture of them .
