I got a set on my toy hauler before last season .

No problems with handling or towing but it's only been 6 trips or so.

I run hercules tires on all my cars/trucks, i never had them on my toyhauler but do have them on my 20’ car hauler. I dont tow but a few times a year with it, but so far so good. Been running the terra tracs a/t2 on my trucks for 6-7 years and love them. Same as toyo as far as im concerned

Had Hercules on my old trailer zero issues with them but I change them every five years no matter what.

I've ran Hercules tires on my trailers for years. I'm really impressed with them.

I have them on all my work trailers and overload them on a regular basis, the Hercules or the sailun is also a very nice tire.

Not a toy hauler, but I have run them on my RV for just under 3 years with no problems.    I will be buying them again.

couple of reasons I like the saliun also, is they specialize in Semi Truck Tires, and the trailer tires look close to a hd Semi truck tire,  and was hard to find any negative review on the tires,

I have owned mine for 4 years, trailer is a 47-foot and loaded is 21,000lbs  I run about 75-80mph  on the highway,

I have always ran the Hercules tires on my trailers, 10 to 14 ply, made in same factory as Toyo from what I was told and had good luck. I just put Sailuns on my 40ft genesis and they toy great just hoping I get the same mileage out of them as my previous trailer Hercules tires.

I don't want to derail this in to a "Go 16 inch wheel and tire combo and don't look back", but it depends on what load range and how big and heavy your trailer is.  I used 5 different brands of ST225/75R15 load range E 2850 lbs "trailer" tires including Hercules and they all failed in short order.  Nothing lasted longer than 1.5 yrs and had blowouts or separations EVERY trip, usually multiple.  The problem, I believe, was Forest River spec'd 225/75/15 E rated tires for my triple axle 38 ft Sierra Sport and it just wasn't enough.  The trailer was 11k dry, GVWR was 15950, CCC  was 4k.   Now I know I was probably over by a few hundred pounds or so, but not thousands.  Went to 16 inch wheels and tires and never again, not once had another blowout or separation in 4yrs before I sold the trailer.  16 tires I used were Goodyear 614 RST G Rated 14 ply 3750 lbs.  Point being make sure whatever tire you get is not running near the max load (lbs) rating.
