Westlake Radials

This radial ply tire from Westlake is constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords for increased durability. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation.


Westlake Standard Tread Close-Up

The standard tread on this tire has solid, continuous ribs, and there are very few sipes (or thin grooves) cut into the rubber. This tire is designed for use on trailers, so it doesn't require the level of traction that would be needed on a vehicle that is braking or steering.


Radial Tires vs. Bias Tires

Radial tire vs bias tire graphic

Radial ply tires are designed for trailers that are towed on the highway. The cords on a radial tire are positioned at a 90-degree angle to the direction of travel so that they lay across the width of the tire from wheel lip to wheel lip. This construction prevents the cords from rubbing against one another when the tire flexes, unlike the cords on a bias ply tire. As a result, radial tires have less rolling resistance and heat buildup, which leads to a longer tread life and improved steering at higher speeds.

This tire is OEM for what comes on a Columbus 5th wheel. It is not the cheap Chinese bomb that many RVer's talk about although it is made in China. I ruined my tire on a curb (rookie mistake) and wanted to match the original OEM. My 5th wheel has been in service since 2017 and these tires are doing very well. Arrived two days after I placed my order. etrailer.com to the rescue! I ordered the wheel and tire at the same time and only etrailer.com had what I needed online. Thank you etrailer!!!


Comments
Tire is holding up very well. Would definitely buy again. I am very happy after using product for a year.

These are the tires that came on the Cimarron gooseneck horse trailer that I ordered from the factory. They perform well and are durable. One of them got a puncture in the tread close to the sidewall and couldn't be plugged so I ordered a new tire to replace it and match the others still on my trailer.




by:

Replace with new Westlake as I had good luck with them on my camper before




by:

This is the third time that I bought these tires from E trailer and never had any problems with them. Free shipping and had the tires within a week. Great way to buy tires.




by:

Last trip out with my fifth wheel, ran over a piece of metal in the road causing tire to go flat, luckily it happened right by entrance to the campground. Was able to air it up enough to get to my site without damaging rim. Put my spare on for my return trip to home but damage to my tire was too close to side wall to repair so I ordered west lake ST235/80R 16 from etrailer which is exactly the match that came on trailer. Tire came on time and perfect match to existing tire. I have had my fiver for 3 1/2 years and the west lakes seem to be holding up fine in regards to the wear. Price from etrailer was lower than any other place I checked and manufacture date stamped on tire was recent so I got a new tire instead of one that had been sitting in a wharehouse for awhile. This is the 2nd tire I have purchased from etrailer and completely satisfied with both purchases. First purchase was same tire with wheel so I had an extra spare for long trips just in case. Would recommend etrailer for prices and expert technical assistance. Happy camping.




by:

I have this tire on my spare, which I unfortunately needed last week, and looks great! I've purchased 2 more to replace the spare and another tire on my camper that is wearing. I hope they last longer than the initial tires.

by:

Etrailor has the tires I needed. The price was fair and they were delivered on time.




by:

It seems to be holding up just fine




by:

Had a blow out with Westlake E rated tires on my 5th wheel. Replaced all 6 with G rated tire. No problems since Replaced.




by:

It’s a good well made tire with a good price. It is the same tire that came on my Grand Design 303RLS had to get new tire due screw through sidewall.




by:

would give 5 stars only had it about a year, so far it has performed as expected time will tell .
Has held up well on my 5th wheel




by:

It took over 40 minutes to get someone to answer phone and take my order
Once the agent answered I could not ask for better service. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was traveling and in a very bad situation and could not move my camper until i received my order. She expidited my order as she promised and I was able to get back on the road to home!!
BRAVO etrailer!!!




by:

I really don’t have a review on product since I just received it today and have yet to mount, but as far as etrailer goes it was fast shipping. I hope to have better luck with this tire than the west lake tire that blew out on me.




by:

Thanks for getting my order out and letting me know it had arrived at my home....very happy with the tire you sent me for my camper just what I ordered it got faster than it was supposed to.....we'll be ordering from etrailer again.. highly recommend them......




by:

As always I found exactly what I need on etrailer quickly and easily. Thank you for a very user-friendly web site. I got what I ordered and it arrived one day ahead of schedule. I can't say much about the tire until I put some miles on it. I think NM Hway 285 south of Carlsbad is what spelled doom for the one I'm replacing so we shall see.




by:

on time and exactly as described and or dered.




by:

Shipping was extremely fast, good follow-up customer service, the tires look great and had a great review, I have 6 of these on a 44 ft. Gooseneck, time to get some miles in and see how they do!




by:

Had a screw in a tire after vacation so needed a replacement. Was pleased to find exact match at Etrailer, as always, fast shipment and great price. Thanks!




by:

i transport cars with my trailer i got about 70,000 miles on these tires be for replacing them




by:

Great tire matches the ones that came with our new travel trailer.




by:

Awesome




by:

We received our product quickly, and in excellent condition. There were some issues getting the order submitted, but Leeza was invaluable in finding a remedy. Thanks, Leeza!

  • Recommended Radial Tire for 2014 Forrest River Sierra Travel Trailer
    I recommend staying with the ST tires as they are made with a stronger sidewall than an automobile or truck tire. ST tires are made to be able to handle higher air pressure and heavier loads. For an ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire with a Load Range E, I recommend the Westlake # LHWL401. This is a 10-ply tire and has a maximum load rating of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi. The great thing about these tires is they have roadside assistance for 2 years and the tire has a 5 year warranty.

  • What is the Correct Tire Pressure for a 235/80R16 Trailer Tire?
    For maximum effectiveness, trailer tires need to be inflated to max psi, which will be somewhere on the tire's sidewall. For example, a load range E tire such as the Westlake ST235/80R16, # LHWL401, has a load capacity of 3,520 lbs when inflated to 80 psi.

  • Recommended ST235/80R16 Tires for Gooseneck Trailer
    For your gooseneck trailer, I recommend going with the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL401. This tire has a maximum load of 3,520 pounds at 80 psi and a maximum speed of 75 mph. This load range will provide more than enough combined capacity for your trailer, even when it is fully loaded. It is constructed with double steel belts and double polyester plies for a long life.

  • Recommended 235/80R16 Tires to Replace LT Tires on 5th Wheel Trailer
    I definitely recommend upgrading the LT tires on your trailer to Special Trailer (ST) tires. Special Trailer tires are specifically designed to handle higher loads and air pressures. This is because they are constructed with thicker and stronger sidewalls when compared to standard automobile or truck tires. I do not recommend continuing to use LT tires on your trailer. I recommend looking at the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL401. This is the same size tire that you currently...

  • Recommended Tire PSI and Load Range for Large Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The psi should be listed on the sidewall of the tire. It is recommended that tires always be inflated to the max psi. Different tire manufacturers may have different psi ratings even for the same tire size and load range, so it's always best to go by the psi rating listed on the tire itself. Also note that tires should never be over-inflated or under-inflated. Inflating tires to a lower air pressure than the maximum reduces the amount of weight that the tire can handle to an unknown amount,...

  • Replacement Trailer Tire for 16 inch Trailer Rim with 2 Year Roadside Assistance Program
    Well trailer tires are typically replaced due to age before wearing out. You don't want to use trailer tires that are over 4 years old. Most likely yours are failing due to age. Plus the tire size you mentioned isn't a standard tire size. Is that for sure the numbers you have? Closest size is the 235/80R16 like # LHWL401 which has a 2 year roadside assistance program. If your RV or trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. You can call...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a 5th Wheel Trailer with 235/80-16 Tires
    I know how you feel. Almost all tires are made overseas now and not just trailer tires. Westlake, Kenda, Karrier, Loadstar, Contender, and Taskmaster are all popular trailer tire brands comparable to, if not better than, other more well-known brands such as Goodyear. For your 235/80-16 tire size it is tough to beat Westlake tire # LHWL401. This is a load range E tire rated for 3,520 pounds at 80 psi and has a speed rating of 75 mph. This tire has a 5-year warranty, which is the most you...

  • What Causes Trailer Tire Failure and Recommendation for Size 235/80R16
    Typically trailer tires fail for the following 3 reasons. 1) Keep your tires fully inflated to the maximum pressure listed on the tire sidewall. Unlike a passenger car tire, trailer tires feature a stronger sidewall designed to provide greater stability when under load. Failure to fully inflate the tires can cause heat build-up, leading to premature tire failure. Also, a tire only will only realize its specified load rating when inflated to its maximum psi shown on the tire. 2) Do not...

  • Are LT Truck Radial Tires Compatible on A 1994 Sooner 3-Horse Trailer
    ST(Special Trailer) and LT(Light Truck) tires can both be used on trailers but the ST tires are preferred as they are made specifically and only for trailers where LT tires can be used on trucks. The excess weight and heat that is created by trailer tires will lessen the life of LT tires. With that said, the height of your tire can also be the issue when the trailer is under a load. First, you needed to see what clearance you have between the tire/wheel and your trailer. Your current...

  • 235/80R16 Trailer Tire vs 235/85R16 Light Truck Tire
    You never want to change out trailer tires for passenger vehicle tires. Trailer tires have a more rigid sidewall which helps to accommodate heavy loads and keep the tires running cooler. Passenger tires, like Light Truck tires, have a more flexible sidewall which helps to provide a more comfy ride but do not perform like trailer tires do on a trailer. I recommend going with the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL401 since you sound like you are having trouble with blowouts....

  • Recommended Tires for Trailer with 235-16 Size Range
    Taskmaster tires are made in China as are almost all trailer tires from any manufacturer. Taskmaster Components is the manufacturing company and they are headquartered in Texas. Special Trailer (ST) are made differently than Light Truck (LT) tires, and need to be maintained differently so that may be the issue at hand. Trailer tires are designed to be run at max psi listed on the tire at all times and should be filled to that psi when cold (prior to a trip). They are designed to hold...

  • Can the Warm Actual PSI Inside a Tire Exceed the Cold PSI Rating While Towing
    The max psi rating that is listed on the sidewall of your tow vehicle's tires is while the tire is cold. Therefore, the actual psi while warm could very well exceed this. That is not cause for concern as this is taken into consideration when the recommended psi rating which is listed on the door jamb was created. Therefore, you will need to fill your tires to the recommended psi rating on the door jamb regardless of ambient temperature or the weight of cargo/trailer unless otherwise stated...

  • Should I Fill My Tow Vehicle's Tires To The PSI On the Sidewall Or PSI On the Door Jamb
    The load range sticker in the driver door jamb of your tow vehicle is what the recommend psi rating is for the factory tire size. If this is the size you have on your tow vehicle then that is the amount you will fill the tires to. If you have a non-factory tire size that is not listed on the load range sticker in the driver door jamb then I cannot advise on the proper psi rating. That said, you will always want to go off of the load range sticker in the driver door jamb not the max psi...

  • Tire Pressure Needed in Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL401
    With trailer tires you want to inflate them to the max pressure listed when they are cold and then any variances due to temperature is totally fine as long as you are under the weight capacity and speed rating. So with the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL401 you need 80 psi in them at all times.

  • Is It Okay To Inflate Tires To 60 When They Are Rated For 80 PSI
    No, you always want your trailer tires to be inflated to the max PSI listed on the sidewall regardless of traveling .When you inflate them to their max PSI they are able to maintain their load capacity so that they are not overloaded. Overloading the tires can lead to excess heat which is the number one reason for tire failure. The PSI increasing a little when you are traveling is not going to matter as long as your staying within the limits of the tire such as load range, and speed rating....

  • Trailer Tire Recommended PSI for Highway Driving and Ambient Temperature Changes
    For tires like the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # LHWL401 that have an 80 psi max like your tires, you are correct that when you inflate them to max cold the friction and warming of the tires will increase that pressure. The tires are made with this in mind and are rated for such increases. Your tires will go above that 80 psi on highway driving and more so on a hot day. You do not need to be concerned about that increased tire pressure.

  • Do I Use Ply Rating or Load Range to Find the Correct Trailer Tires for my E-Z Toy Hauler
    The ply rating of a tire is no longer used to determine its weight capacity. As tire manufacturing technology has advanced through time, manufactures have been able to use less plies and still maintain the same weight capacity. Therefore, the industry standard for trailer tires in regards to weight capacity is now referred to as "Load Range". The alphabetic load range rating of a trailer tire refers to how much weight one tire can safely withstand. The highest weight capacity we have...

  • Can Trailer Tire Size 235/85R16 Be Replaced with 235/80R16
    Yes, both tire sizes you mentioned 235/80R16 and 235/85R16 fit the same wheel size so you can make the swap if you want. For that size the part # LHWL401 is the best option. This tire has a capacity of 3,520-lb max load at 80 psi, a speed rating of 75 mph and a 2 year roadside assistance program. If your RV or trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year from anywhere in...

    The best way to prevent trailer tires from running hot is to not exceed their speed rating and to keep them inflated to their max psi rating.

This tire has a capacity of 3,520-lb max load at 80 psi, a speed rating of 75 mph (most are only 65) and comes with a 2 year roadside assistance program as well. This is a Load Range E as well.

  • Recommended 235/80R16 Trailer Tires for Fifth Wheel Trailer
    For your 2016 Cougar Fifth Wheel trailer I recommend using the Westlake # LHWL401, which are ST235/80R16 tires with a load range of E. They have a load capacity of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi; you will want to make sure your trailer tires are always filled to this psi in order to make sure you get the best performance and keep your tires from potential blowouts. A lower air pressure will lessen the tire's capacity, cause the sidewall to heat up and possibly blow. This tire has a speed limit rating...
