Tire recommendations

My Goodyear G114's are 6 years old and should be replaced. What would you recommend for a good, safe tire?

I think what you have has been a good safe tire. I would buy what has worked for you already.

I would simply read what you wrote and go from there. Why would you want to change brands after a six year run?

Personally I would go 8 years with those tires!!!

Stick with GY as they are the only ones that will take care of damage and not require an insurance claim.

I agree with all the posts, Goodyear did well by me and many others when a tire fails for some reason. I think for the money you get a good tire that was built for the job. I would replace with the same brand and size.

I agree. I had an issue with sidewall separation on two of the GY tires on my truck and GY replaced all 6 of them. I've not had any issues with any of the GY trailer tires I've had.

More of the same.
For a trailer that was going to only sit at resort and not travel, I might have a slightly modified suggestion.

Although I am a fan of the GY G-114, and a victim of a catastrophic failure, I will limit my tires to 5 years, and replace them with G-114's

I drive tractor trailer and we run all Chinese tires pulling 100,000 pounds plus. I have not put any miles on our camper. This is Porkchop's old one. We are going to Yellowstone from Maine early next May and just thinking ahead. The Chinese tires are a lot cheaper. Was just trying to pick out a reputable brand. I heard that Sailun are pretty good. Just wanted a second opinion.

Ran 17.5 Sailuns on my last '05 36TKE for over 15000 miles and a trip to AK--they were in great shape when I traded for the '15.
My previous F450 ran the 19.5 Sailuns and had over 60k on them when traded for the '17 and lots of tread left.
I will seriously consider them again when the time comes.
