Not sayin' that's the whole deal but it makes a difference to me.

Makes a HUGE difference to me also, I'm as American as one can be, but if we're going 100% American on everything you purchase , good luck with that. One can replace a G614 for less than 1/2 the price with the SailunS637...I'll save money on this ONE purchase and still get a high quality tire .(Will be 66 in July and now I tend to try to save money on what I'd call a major purchase when I can).

If your unit is equipped with the Rainier tires, they could be considered as such.

Not to disagree with any opinions here, but our "junk" Rainier tires made it from Seattle to Ohio and back this past summer with no issues, nearly 6000 miles inside of three weeks.

On another note, the previous trailer had new Maxxis tires and they made the same trip in 2014 with no issues. Given a choice, I would put new Maxxis on any trailer I owned.

17.5 inch wheels and sailun tires from Trailertiresandwheels.com. very happy so far. Tires came mounted and balance on the wheels. I had a blowout on the original 16 inch stock tow max tires and upgraded. The tire diameters of the stock 16 inch and the new 17.5s are virtually the same due to the lower profile hieght on the 17.5s.

We had the "great" tow max (power king) tires on our 5'er. We had one showing a lump, (separating on the inside) which we replaced before it could blow. Then on the same trip we had one blow and caused damage to the lower side of the 5'er. We then decided to replace all the tires. We were in the middle of traveling, so we ended up with Goodyear from Wal-mart. When the rest of the tow max were taken off, they all showed signs of separating on the inside. If we had not changed them all, I am sure we would have had another blow-out before we got back home. We are planning on changing the wheels and get some better tires in the next year or so. Our wheels are for only 80psi, and I would rather have heavier duty tires for the weight of this trailer.

We just recently took delivery of our 2016 Pinnacle 38FLSA and it also came with the 235/80/R16 Rainier ST's. We have a trip coming up in March and are planning to travel around 1800 miles round trip. Is the opinion of others here in the forum I should have them swapped to Good Year G614 before this maiden voyage. Or do you think it would be okay to swap them after this trip? Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...

My take is this... If you can afford to do it now, and plan to do it later anyway, then just bite the bullet.
