Has anyone seen this?

Sailun recall
Copied from SOF

Sailun Tire Americas, Inc. (Sailun) is recalling certain Sailun, RoadX, Blacklion, Blackhawk, and Ironhead brand tires, sizes ST235/80R16 and ST235/85R16 with DOT codes 2020 through 4120. Due to a manufacturing issue, the tires may experience a belt separation. Belt separation could lead to loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Sailun will replace the tires, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed in December 2021. Owners may contact Sailun customer service at 1-844-281-9696.

Another reason to buy Sailun if you have a 5ver. Great tires and not afraid to admit they had a problem with a certain production run unlike other manufacturers.

Frank thank you very much for posting this I have sailun on our toyhauler.I love them
I forwarded this to a friend of mine that has him on his toy hauler
And his is in that grouping. The reason I went was sailin was after
What Goodyear did with the coverup on their rv tire a few years ago
And the lawyer games I was out. That was only reason.
But to each their own. I have also forwarded this to our tire guy
That myself and friends use.
Frank Thank you very much for the info.
All our best Central Florida

I’ve got them also. I’ve got 5 one was recalled. Local dealer got it in one day. He did change my valve stem from metal to rubber not sure why he did that? I also had to grind down the screws that hold on the trim. A couple cut into my tires because there taller and wider. Does anybody know the best tire pressure for the weight?

The rubber valve stem is going to be an issue, you need to have the tire dealer re-install the metal stem. Rubber valve stems are not rated for the tire pressures that your tires can be run at. They can get blown out of the rim.

I believe you can safely use rubber valve stems up to 80 psi. My truck has rubber valve stems and I can run those tires up to 80 psi. And the truck came with rubber too.

Most trailer information seems to say once you get beyond 80 psi you need metal. Most E rated tires are run at 80 psi although I am sure there are exceptions.

Not certain where the cut off is but it is a safe bet that if your tires came from the factory with rubber stems then whatever the sticker on your trailer says is safe as far as ax pressure.

I have several years of history with my rubber valve stems and my tires do fine.

If the tires are off the rims for any reason, change them to metal…. I mean. Why not?

I believe the Sailun ST235/85R16 load range G tires are rated for 110 psi. Me personally, I would have metal valve stems. If you start at 80 psi on a hot day in Texas, you will be 90+ psi when things get warmed up. I have seen the sunny side tires run 3 psi higher than shady side on the TPMS. Starting at 65 psi on a hot day pressure settles out around 72 to 74 psi on my TT.
