I will replace my West(crap)Lake tires with Sailun S637 G rated tires..Same wheels because they're rated for 110 psi thus, no extra cost...excellent reputation for these tires and MORE than enough weight rating(4080# per tire) to cover the 7K axles.

Note that the tires wear on the outside not the inside as normal axle misalignment. Broken belts
Update from Westlake thru Jayco on this junk tire, no warranty claim honored and no replacement. What a surprise!

I want to replace the Westlakes on my 355w with Sailuns. My rims are rated for 110psi, but I only have 2" of clearance between the tires right now with the Westlakes. The diameter of the Sailuns are 1" bigger than the Westlakes, which would give me only 1" clearance between the tires.
Does anyone know what the minimum clearance required between the tires?

Tim, I too have the issue of the axles being very close together. Not sure the TH specified in my signature are 2" like yours but, they sure look close however, if you have the 16" rims and want to upgrade to the G rated 235/85 R16 Sailuns, such may be an issue and I would unfortunately (cost wise) recommend going with the steel 17.5" 6.75" wide wheels with Sailun S637 215/75 R17.5 H rated tires here: $115.99 - S637 215/75R17.5 tires | Buy S637 tires at SimpleTire

This set up will not increase the circumference and even provide you with even more durability than the upgraded and G rated 16's. These 17.5's are to be blown up to 125 psi.

I would like to avoid having to get new rims if possible, especially since the ones I have are rated to 110psi.
I called Lippert today and they said the minimum spacing between the tires on all their axels is 1". I will have to do some more accurate measuring to see if I can stay within Lipperts minimum spacing.

Tim, The 1" spacing specified by Lippert is very good to know. As a matter of fact, to me, that's a game changer because I too cringe at the thought of having to eliminate the much better looking alloy wheels for those generic looking grey steel wheels. Looks like I too will be looking into those Sailun S637 ST235/85R16's load range G tires. The bummer is that I just purchased those fancy orange levelers that you roll onto with both wheels and such will make the rear wheel impossible due to the unit not fitting between the wheels however, even with stock wheels and tires, you may still have to trim it down to fit. The other bummer would be what I see as a big issue of possibly not being able to use the X-Chocks. Man, this stuff can be full of drama, eh?

Good dependable tires will trump all that in the long run!

Absolutely, Norty! My dilemma is not the fact of whether or not to upgrade the tires, it's whether to lose the extra inch or so between wheels due to how close the axles are on both Turtle Tim's and my TH units. With only having an inch between the two wheels and tires may force me to go with the 17.5" rims and the H rated Sailuns in order to at least maintain the factory spacing. Going with the 17.5's as opposed to the taller 16's will allow for the use of the X-Chocks and possibly even those two piece orange leveling units I referred to above. As specified, by going with the 17.5's I would also gain a load range from G to H.

I know we are beating this topic to death however, the drama continues in that I heard some 2017's have been fitted with Maxxis tires. If that's the case, I may decide to hold off for a couple years before upgrading and definitely upgrade if or when we do a trek up to Alaska. I would still cringe with those Maxxis' being only load range D however, I do have the TPMS system which should mitigate the issue somewhat. With my TH having a dry weight of nearly 9K lbs and with my JD diesel UTV at 1600 to 1700 lbs., the max. weight including water, propane and other stuff adds up pretty darn quickly and leaves very little room for beer. This is why I see 17.5's in my nery near future if not right away, know whadda mean?

Ok, I measured the spacing between the tires on my 355W, and it was slightly over 2 1/8". With the Sailuns being 9/10's of an inch more in diameter, that will give me over the 1" that Dexter requires. (I said Lippert in the post above, but the axels are actually Dexter and that is who I spoke with).
Ordered the Sailun's today from Simple Tire. Could not find them locally. America's Tire will mount, balance, and install for $80. Will feel better with a sturdier tire with extra load rating for some cushion.
