Found some tires I'm gonna try out, not Sailuns but these. Shop in town sells em, like to keep stuff local if possible.
Trying to decide if I should go up to 235/85/16 vs. 235/80/16.

I'm on my 3rd 5th wheel, and have accumulated a lot of miles over the years. You're wear rate is atypical. Start by ensuring your alignment is correct, and upgrade your suspension with heavy duty shackles and a wet bolt kit. The only tires I've never had trouble with are the Goodyear G614 RSTs, load range G, that I'm running now. I monitor tire pressure and temperature with a TPMS system.

Well that's the thing. I came back from Elkhart 2 months ago where I got a IS suspension. Should have been lined up good, but after putting a straight edge on the tires it looks like 1 rear is towed out about an 1/8 & opposite front is towed out.

We have a 37' Cedar Creek and have always ran G rated Goodyear tires on it. Got 6 yrs on the first ones and four on the set we have now with not much wear at all. We did have to put new leaf springs and new shocks on it about a month ago. It is a 2005 5th wheel.

Mine is a year old picked it up last April. What's the Cedar Creek weigh? Mine is 14K plus.

First off I'm positve those tires were made in China. Second if u google Sailum Chinese made tires u will find lots of evidence they r also junk. There's more than 1 reason they're so cheap. Buy the Goodyears or look at the Bridgestone s which I have on my 14k 5r. 5k miles and they look brand new. Always, always check cold tire pressure before any trip. Remember that the rv industry now is owned by very few corporations. Most of the quality manufactors went bankrupt in 08 crash. So everything is geared to make rvs as cheap and light as possible. Lippart now makes 90% of all the frames, suspension systems and axles. Their business model is to work with rv industry to make everything cheaper and lighter. Now take in fact that rvs take a large amount of seasonal workers to assemble unlike the auto industry. So what I'm saying is there's no way an rv can have a correct alignment from the factory. Even if it's close parts will "move" under the heavy weights. Without a proper alignment you r really dragging the tires sideways down the highway. Then we won't even think that the rv tires were never balanced!! No u don't feel in the seat of your truck but your rv tires are merrily skipping down the highway leaving rubber behind. My family's life and possibly others plus $100k of truck and trailer is not worth trying to save a couple hundred bucks.

I use the Goodyear’s on my horse trailer too. Had one blow out, but they were 11 years old.
