Expert Answers about Westlake

  • Can Westlake 235/80R16 Trailer Tires be Replaced with Westlake 235/85R16 Tires
  • The 235/85R16 size Westlakes, part # LHWL410, are an inch larger in diameter compared to the 235/80R16s part # LHWL401. So you need to make sure there's an extra half inch of clearance between the tire and the underside of the fender. You want a total of at least 3 to 4 inches of clearance. Another thing to consider is the larger tires have a maximum psi of 110 pounds and trailer tires should always be inflated to their max. This is important because the valve stems on your wheels...

  • What is the Correct PSI Rating for ST235/80R16 Trailer Tires
  • The psi rating on the sidewall of all trailer tires is the cold PSI rating, meaning the tire should be inflated to that psi rating before the tire heats up. If your tire says 80 psi, then the manufacturer intended for that tire to be inflated to 80 PSI before you hit the road. If you start out at a lower pressure, then the biggest concern that you will have is that the weight rating of the tire will also decrease. Unfortunately, Goodyear is the only trailer tire manufacturer that lists...

  • What Causes Trailer Tire Blowouts
  • Every trailer tire has a load range rating specific to that particular tire. For example, we have the ST225/75-15 trailer tire in three load range ratings; Load Range C (2,150 lbs per tire), Load Range D (2,540 lbs per tire), and Load Range E (2,830 lbs per tire). If the gross trailer weight (GTW) exceeds the tires load range rating then the tires will be susceptible to blowouts. In addition to load range ratings, trailer tires also have a speed ratings specific to the tire. The speed...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire Size ST235/85R16 With Load Range G
  • For the ST235/85R16 tire, we have one other option for you in a load range G. I recommend the Taskmaster Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # TTWPRG235R16. This is a comparable tire to the # LHWL410 you mentioned at a good cost. The Provider has a 14 ply rating, a tread depth of 16/32 inch and a speed rating of 75 mph. I've attached a video review of this product for you.

  • Compatibility of 17.5 Rims and Tires To Replace 16 Inch Trailer Wheels
  • The Westlake 215/75R17.5 Radial Tire w 17-1/2" Lynx Aluminum Wheel # LHAS701 are intended for wheel bolt size 9/16-18 with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. These wheels with that bolt pattern and wheel bolt size are rated for 4,805 lbs at 123 psi. The 5/8 inch bolts you are referring to are a stronger bolt, but will not work with these wheels based on the wheel design. That change is not required based on the wheel design or weight. If you want the 5/8 inch wheel bolts, then I recommend...

  • Recommended Westlake ST235/85R16 with 16 Inch Lynx Aluminum Wheel in Black for Matching Spare
  • We do sell it, but only as separate wheel and tire. For the wheel, you will want the Aluminum Lynx Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6" Rim - 8 on 6-1/2 - Black # LHSL513B. This is the aluminum with the black interior like the photo you attached. Then you will need the Westlake ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # LHWL410. You will also need the valve stem # AM20906. Any tire shop will be able to help you install the tire on the wheel, but trailer wheels are balanced differently from...

  • Wheel Compatible with E Rated Trailer Tires Size ST225/75R15
  • We have many wheels that will work with the ST225/75R15 tire size. I have attached a link to all of your options as these tires will fit a standard 15x6 inch rim in the 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. You will want to make sure the valve stem you use allows the max PSI of your tire. For any tire over 80 psi, I recommend the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long - Over 100 psi # AM20906. If you are interested in a tire and wheel combination that you can just install on your trailer,...

  • What Should the Tire Pressure be for a 225/75-15 Trailer Tire with Load Range E Rating
  • If you install new 225/75-15 tires on your trailer or any trailer for that matter with a load range e rating like part # LHWL304 for example then you will need to fill them to the max psi listed on the sidewall which for this tire is 80 psi. This will allow you to retain the maximum weight capacity of 2,830 lbs per tire. In regards to ply rating, this is no longer a viable metric in today's industry when comparing tires as tire manufacturers have gone to using lighter but stronger materials...

  • Lug Nut Recommendation for Use with Westlake Wheel and Tire part # 274-000015
  • We have great looking stainless steel lugnuts that will work on the Westlake Wheel and Tire part # 274-000015 like the Lionshead Trailer Wheel Lug Nut # LHLR103 but we do not have covers for these lugs. I looked through all of the customer submitted photos we have and they all show the use of standard lug nuts like these.

  • Recommended Tires And Wheels As Well As Over-Under Kit For Utility Trailer
  • For your desired 225/15 load range e tires on silver mod 5 on 4-1/2, you will need to purchase the tires and wheels separately and have them mounted at a local tire shop. For this tire, I recommend the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # LHWL304 because of its warranty. This tire has a 5 year warranty and comes with 2 years of roadside assistance should anything happen. No other company offers that. This tire is made extremely well and that is part of the reason...

Among these are two choices in a 14-ply-rated Load Range G tire. The one I suggest for you is the Taskmaster Provider # TTWPRG235R16.

  • Trailer Wheel and Tire with Matching Weight Capacity
  • With combination products like the Jaguar wheel and ST205/75R15 tire # LHAWLSJ301G the lower-rated of the two component parts determines overall capacity. This tire can handle 2150-lbs at its rated 65-psi pressure but the wheel itself is indeed rated for less weight, 1820-lbs, so that is the overall capacity of the combination item. You want to choose wheels and tires to match the trailer's GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating), not its dry weight, since that is the most it can weigh and...

  • Brakes, Hubs, Tires and Wheels for 6,000 lb Axle
  • I have a complete setup for your trailer that will work great with your 6,000 lb axles. I recommend using the Electric Trailer Brake Assembly, both left # AKEBRK-7L-SA and right # AKEBRK-7R-SA hand sides of your trailer. These brakes have the self-adjusting feature on them so you don't have to manually adjust your trailer brakes every 3,000 miles. Since you are building a trailer, you are going to need some wiring as well. I am not sure what kind of trailer you are building, but...

We do not have a combo available that has this particular tire mounted to a 14 inch x 6 inch wheel. One of the great features of this tire...

  • Comparing the Castle Rock and Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire
  • The Castle Rock ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire part # 274-000029 and the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire part # LHWL304 are both made by the same company, Lionshead. In short, Lionshead is the brand and Westlake/Castle Rock is the model. The main difference between these two is that the Castle Rock tire has a load range D (2,540 lbs) and the Westlake tire has a load range E (2,830 lbs) rating. The Westlake tire would give you more of a cushion for your 10,000 lb trailer so that...

  • Mod Wheel and Trailer Tire Size 225/75-15 Recommendation
  • The tire and wheel combos we carry are not machined balanced. You can have the tire and wheel combos balanced at a local tire shop if you wanted to. What some tire manufacturers will do is line up the light spot on the tire with the heavy spot on the wheel. This is a type of balancing but not like how car tires are balanced (with weights on a balancing machine). This is the norm for nearly all trailers on the road. If you have a 6 bolt pattern the best option we have for a 225/75R15...

It however is not the best or only option for your current wheels. For the best tire for your wheels, I recommend the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL304. This tire is rated for 2,830 lbs at 80 psi. This tire has a 5 year warranty. For a wheel and tire combination for your spare, I recommend the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer...

  • Recommended Trailer Wheels for 4 Wheel Army Trailer With 17.5 x 6-3/4 Inch Wheels
  • The military trailers often have very unique fits as they are modified based on need so there isn't a standard fit. For a 17.5 inch wheel, option if you have 4 wheels on two separate axles, I recommend the Westlake 215/75R17.5 Radial Tire w 17-1/2" Solid Center Wheel - Offset - 8 on 6-1/2 - LR H # LHAS210. This combo has a max load of 4,805 at 123 psi and speed rating of 62 mph. This combo comes with a 1 year warranty on the wheel and 5 years on the tire. It also comes with 2 years...

  • Recommendation to Upgrade from 205/75R14 Tires to 225/75R15 Tires on Trailer
  • It sounds like you are wanting to upgrade your existing ST205/75R14 tires to a 225/75R15 tire and wheel combo. We do not currently have a 225/75R14 tire like what you mentioned in your question. This LT (Light Truck) tire size is designed for use on trucks and is not generally used on trailers. Since your current tires use a 14 inch rim, you will need to replace both the tires and wheels on your trailer in order to upgrade to a 225/75R15, which will use 15 inch wheels. Note that the...

  • Recommending a Wheel Cap and Lug Nuts for a Westlake Radial Tire
  • You were correct in your assessment that the appropriate center cap for your Westlake Radial Tire, # LHAWSJ392, is the Lionshead Trailer Wheel Center Cap, # LHCS108-SI60C. The Lionshead Center Cap is a fit with six-lug wheels that have a 4.25-inch pilot diameter, which the Westlake is. As for the lug nuts, you were right again. You will need the Kodiak Trailer Wheel Lug Nut, # KALN1375S, which fits 1/2-inch-20 wheel studs. They are made of stainless steel to resist rust and corrosion,...

  • What Is The Speed Rating in Mile Per Hour for L on Trailer Tires?
  • It sounds like you are looking at a tire similar to the Westlake ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire # 274-000012. The speed rating you mention of "L" is a max of 75 mph. If tires have this higher speed rating, they are labeled L or M (81 mph). If they don't have the L or M speed rating, ST tires are limited to 65 mph max. If you want that higher speed rating, I recommend the Contender ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # C20514C or the slightly larger and higher load range...

  • Will Standard Wheel Lug Wrench Fit Lionshead Trailer Tire and Wheel # LHAW330
  • You need to use a thinner walled socket if you are running into clearance issues fitting the socket all the way into the cutout for the wheel lugs. I've run into this problem before on a car and it was because I was using a socket with a really thick wall. Going with a more standard size socket/4-way like the # PTW1 would prevent this issue. The wheel part # LHAW330 also does not have a thin and deep cut out for the lugs either. For a standard 1/2" -20 lug nut we have the part # LHLR103...

  • What Load Range Tire is Needed for a 10,000 lb Trailer
  • Load range capacity varies based on the tire size and brand, so without knowing either, it's hard to say. For example, a load range D tire in size 145/80-12 has an average capacity of 1,220 lbs, while a load range C tire in size 185/80-13 has an average capacity of 1,480 lbs. So, in this case, the load range C tire has a greater capacity than the load range D tire. It's best to check the weight capacity of an individual tire to make sure the load range will be sufficient. With a fifth wheel,...

With that being said, if you are still looking for a replacement tire, I highly recommend considering the Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL304.
