Samson Radial Truck GL285T Tire Reviews
(Based on 6 Reviews)
Purchased these for my Take 3 car hauler. No issues at all. On this trailer I have 3 axles and on tight turns with a load with my 10 ply tires that came from factory I ran the risk of pulling the tire of the bead. Not so with these tires, they at heavy duty commercial tires and show no sign of sidewall flex during tight turns.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
So far very nice tire
Absolutely love these tires. I have a 41' Triple Axle ToyHauler that pushes 18k when fully loaded for the dunes and my 1 year old (bought trailer new in 2015) China Bombs were separated already. I wanted to get a G-Rated all steel tire and Sailun was what I had seen on a lot of 5th wheels but a few friends recommended Samson. I ordered 6 tires, they were shipped to my door in AZ in 2 days and Discount Tire installed all 6 for $110 - total I was into all 6 for less than $1000 installed. - G-rated ALL STEEL carcass - this is a key spec as it has steel belts from bead to bead. These tires weigh in at 63# each. My old e-rated weighed a mere 40#s - 110psi tire for 4,400# load rating per tire - 14-ply - Re-groovable - basically a semi tire for your RV I have been running these over 6 months now in the AZ heat and they are a great tire. You cannot go wrong with these for your Heavy Haulers
This tire was purchased for a 5th wheel RV. Ikept getting blowouts with the tire brand that the manufacturer put on it (235-80-16 Tow master). I have over 10,000 miles on these Samsons and not a problem. The 14 ply rating makes tight turns very easy (where they have to slide sideways). They take 95 psi so they roll easier with better milage. It was a very simple process to order from Simpletire and shipping was fast. Thank you Simple tire.
Samson is a good Trailer Tire. Note to all Customers always keep Air Pressure right in your Tires, it is the life of them.
I pull a trailer that weights 12000 lbs. The 4 single 10 ply rated tires just would not hold up,. They looked like they were low and took a lot of effort to pull, had several blowouts also, I order 4 of the GL285T tires. They have been great so far. The 14 ply rating @ 95 psi helps them roll with less effort, equals better fuel mileage.,, They don't look like they are low of air either. These new tires have been very good for the money. No more blowouts saves me money.
