My First Blow Out - Need New Tires

Just had my first Blow-Out on the way home from camping. The tires I have are almost 4 years old and have some minor cracks on the sidewalls...

Can anyone recommend good trailer tires ...? I am thinking to get like G rated but then maybe this would be overkill.

I have 2006 Jayco Eagle 281 RLS current tires are ST235/80R16 and rated E.

How about these - GoodYear Endurance

Thanks in advance ...

Here is couple of pictures to illustrate the event...

You should look at the Sailun G rated tires. Best bang for the buck IMHO

I got mine from simpletire.com

Shipped to my house and I took them to my local tire shop to install them. Be aware that there are 2 different s637 tires. One is an LT, the other is ST. I believe the ST is 235/80 and the LT is 235/85. Not much difference but I believe the LT has a higher speed rating

Either way, make sure your rims are 110 psi compatible.

I have the new GY endurance tires on mine, so far so good. I think they outweighed the tow max by 9 pounds each. Comparing the unmounted tires next to each other the side wall on the endurance was substantially stiffer.

Just came back from a 7300 mile trip (about 3500 on the 2012 Jayco RLTS31), pulled with a Ford F250 6.7 liter diesel, with Goodyear Endurance tires. Really like them... they are "N" rating (87 mph), so feel very comfortable at 70 mph or so. Seem to be a great improvement over all the 65 mph tires for trailers.

Time will tell ... these are new from Goodyear, coming out in January, 2017.

Hard to deny the track record Saliun tires have earned but GY Endurance appears to be as much a contender and there's a dealer network that can be there if needed.

I don't feel there can ever be "overkill" in respect to getting quality tires.
