I usually use Sailun for load range G tires but they were not available timely for me. Discount tire wanted to much money for the Hartland all steel tire they carry, like close to 200 dollars a tire. The one local tire guy that I trust is a Hercules dealer and I have heard from more than one person that their trailer tires are pretty good.
So I got 4 ST235/85/16 LRG with a speed code of L (75mph). I am doing about 5k of driving with this trailer in the next few months so hopefully these hold up. Plant code says made by Ling Long in Thailand. Hercules H901 website

I just put a Ling Long Crosswind M/T on as the spare for my Samurai. $98 for a hard to find 215/75R15 mud tire is hard to beat. All I have to go on is appearance, but it is a good looking tire. Apparently a lot of Chinese tire companies have built new factories in Thailand because of their rubber production and the sanctions we have on imports from China. Going to be seeing a lot more tires coming out of there.

What kind of trailer is this? Load Range G, I've never even heard of that. Must be a serious trailer.

I don't care where they come from-as I don't curb hop, exceed their speed ratings, scrub the tires (in a tight turn) and always check my inflation. Consequently-I have run Chinese trailer tires to the East Coast and back without issues.

I'm a semi mechanic. Semi's have tires with different tread patters for steer, drive and trailer. Those tires have a similar tread pattern of a typical semi trailer tire which is ideal.
I prefer tires made in the USA, but we tested a brand from Sailun and they were reliable out lasted many other tires.

That's the big one ... People let their travel trailer sit for 11 months. Then they hook it up to their big diesel, never check the tire pressure, then hop on the highway and run 90MPH with the thing overloaded. Then blame the Chinese tires when they fail.

I've seen these tires getting good reviews for trailer use on RV forums. Never knew they were Ling Longs in disguise.

I just had to replace the tires on my heavy 5th wheel toy hauler. I had Michelin load range J XTA tires, just put on Michelin load range J Multi X T2 tires. No issues with the XTAs, hopefully the Multi X T2s will be just as good. Any experience with those tires?

Yes. They were great, until they were vandalized. I was just curious if he (or you) had experience with the X Multi T2. I'm assuming they'll be good too.
