Absolutely a fact, but, in truth, a pretty meaningless fact without data to say how many miles have been put on those thousands of tires.

While I am an LT believer, the Endurance that Arctic Fox is putting on their new trailers have almost converted me. Every time we go out we are on gravel, and have had no issues at all, and I pay close attention to my tires.

Now that it has been mentioned, I have not seen one post on the Arctic Fox forums about tire issues. They do have a reputation for building heavy trailers.

I guess FACTS don't matter!


Only experience really counts. Any fly by night professionals can make up their facts based on a VERY SHORT time span. As I say. In a few years we will have a good knowledge / sampling of how good or bad they are. But not in so short a production run. ANY china bomb will last 2 years, and we know how good they are.

and they are GoodYears. that is a strike against them to start with.

He used statistics. Thousands of tires sold and not one non roadhazard claim. That is a fact.


so thousands of NEW tires haven't failed. I would hope not.

Look on the side of sailun tires and see where they are mfg. Why everyone looks over this in these discussions beats me.

Meaningless reply as the Sailun S637 16" load G are top shelf right now. They've been on the market for over 10 years and have that long term service record that the Endurance may hve some years down the road.
The 16'/17.5" Sailuns got there start in the service trailer industry. Later rv owners looking for a better load G and load H tire that would stay together long term started using them.
The Sailuns have that earned years and miles of trouble free service over on the commercial side unlike the Endurance that simply hasn't been there yet.

JMO but when Endurance owners around the trailering world , report 3-5 years of actual use and 30k-40k miles of trouble free then a statement can be made what type of service they can give.
Just being on the market for 2 years and X months is not a indicator how they will do long term.

I've said before...the Endurance may have that long term service record from around the trailering world (rv and non rv).

I am not sure of the standard, but the manufacturer is holding the same standard as the US tire manufacturers..

I may be 100% wrong, but am almost certain I read that somewhere ( other than here) .. they are held to a higher standard...

I don;t own them as I am happy with my USA-GY's

So how many “G” and “H” tires are sold by Sailun and GY per year? How many non road hazard failures?
