Expert Answers about Westlake

  • What Is The Speed Rating For "L" On Trailer Tires?
  • It sounds like you are looking at a tire similar to the Westlake ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # LHWL201. 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...

  • Comparing Westlake ST235/85R16 Tires To Goodyear G614 Radial Tires
  • Westlake Tires like 99% of trailer tires are made overseas but meet or exceed the DOT and FMVSS specifications. The Westlake brand is one of the very best and customers have been very happy with them. They also come with the best warranty of any tire we carry because the manufacturer believes in their products. They have a complimentary roadside service for 2 years available anywhere in the US. The Westlake ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # LHWL410 have a load rating...

  • Trailer Tire Capacity Recommendation for 16k Trailer with 16 inch Diameter Wheels
  • What size tires do you have and how many axles does the trailer have? Best way to pick out tires based on capacity is to divide the total amount of trailer weight by the amount of tires it will have. That's the capacity you would need. So lets say you have a tandem axle trailer with 4 total tires and you have 16 inch trailer wheels. In that scenario the part # LHWL410 would be the best option as it has a capacity of 4,080 lbs at 110 psi which would be over the 16k weight you listed. Also...

  • Best RV Trailer Tires for Size ST225/75R15
  • We have just what you need. The very best trailer tire option we have is from Lionshead and is part # LHWL304. This is a higher Load Range than yours as you have a Load Range D currently and this is a Load Range of E with capacities of 2,830-lb max load at 80 psi. This tire also has a higher than normal speed rating of 71 mph whereas other trailer tires are usually limited to only 65 mph. That being said here's the real icing on the cake for this tire... This tire comes with complimentary...

  • Difference Between Trailer Tire Sizes ST205/75R15 and ST225/75R15
  • The two sizes you mentioned are pretty similar and fit many of the same 15 inch wheels. The 205/75-15 fits rim widths of 5 inch to 6-1/2 inch whereas the 225/75-15 fits widths that are 6 inch to 7 inch. The 205 is 27.1 inches tall and the 225 is 28.4 inches tall. The 225 has higher capacities available for it as well. Generally people go to the bigger size when they need more capacity than what the 205 offers. In that size the part # LHWL304 is our best option as it has a 75 mph speed...

  • 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 Replacement Trailer Tire For P255/75R15
  • I did some research and the tires we have in our selections available will be "too skinny" to work with your rim. We do have tire and wheel combinations that would work if you are willing to replace everything. For example, Item # LHAW124 is a Westlake ST225/75R15 radial tire and wheel combination with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern that has a maximum load capacity of 2,830-lbs at 80 psi. If you send me your bolt pattern and trailer weight capacity, I can make a correct recommendation....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for 3,500 lb Axles in Size 205/75-14
  • I really like the Westlake radial trailer tires as our customers really like them, they are well-constructed and they have higher speed ratings of 75 mph compared to most trailer tires that are only rated for 65. In your tire size of 205/75-14 I would highly recommend the # LHWL201 for the reasons I mentioned. Also these would work well on your 3,500 lb axles as they are perfectly rated for that.

  • Replacement Wheel and Tire Recommendation for 8.75R16.5 Trailer Wheel Tire Size
  • I have a great solution for you. The Lionshead Wheel and Tire part # LHAW124 is a Load Range E tire that is ST225/75R15 which has an overall diameter of 28.3 inches which would give you more clearance actually. It also is on a wheel with a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern like you need.

  • 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,...

  • Recommended 235/85-16 Sized Trailer Tires
  • Trailer tires have a stronger side wall than truck tires which is why they're recommended. The most common reason for tires failing is excessive heat buildup. A lot of times trailer tires are not inflated properly or are driven over their speed rating limit causing the tires to heat up and eventually fail. You should always know and stay within the speed rating of your tires. Also, trailer tires should always be inflated to their maximum psi while they're cold. If a trailer tire is...

  • Best Size 6.70-15 Tire Replacements
  • 6.70-15 is an older tire size that can be replaced by 205/75-15 tires, which we do offer. I recommend going with the Westlake ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range D, # LHWL300. This is a great radial tire with a maximum load of 2,150 lbs. The tire includes a 5-year warranty and 2-year complimentary roadside assistance. If you can get away with something less heavy-duty than a load range D tire, I recommend the load range C Provider ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire, # TTWTRTM2057515C....

  • 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.

  • What Load Range Tires to Use for a 16,000 lb Trailer with 7,000 lb Axles
  • For a trailer with 7,000 lb axles I recommend using Load Range G tires, like the Westlake # LHWL410. Load Range G tires are rated for 4,080 lb at 110 psi when using a single tire, and 3,640 lbs at 110 psi when using dual tires. If you are getting new wheels with the tires, like part # LHAXSJ421, make sure you select the right bolt pattern as well. I have attached a demonstration video of the products that I mentioned and some helpful links related to tire sizing and frequently asked...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for Trailer that Weighs 25,000 lbs and Has 8 Wheels
  • Since your trailer has 8 wheels and weighs a total of 25,000 lbs that means you'd need a tire capacity of 3,125 lbs per tire in the size of 235/85R16. For that I would recommend the Westlake ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # LHWL410 which has a capacity of 4,080 lbs at 110 psi per tire. The tire also has a speed rating of 75 miles per hour 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...

  • Life Expectancy of Trailer Tires and Wheels
  • We like to keep our prices pretty competitive. We recommend that trailer tires be replaced every 6 or 7 years regardless of how worn they are. Since trailer tires are often not used everyday, like vehicle tires, a lot of times they get old before they wear out. Tires break down over time just from being exposed to the elements like sunlight and saltwater. A trailer wheel will last much longer than the tires, often for many years, depending on how the trailer is used and the construction...

  • Should Trailer Tire Size of 235/75-15 Be Replaced
  • What are the letters in the tire size? If they are LT at the end or ST at the beginning you are fine with them on your trailer. If instead it is just the letter P then you really do have to swap out the tires as they aren't rated for use on a trailer. The closest trailer tire size we offer would be the ST225/75-15 which would only be slightly smaller. Absolute best option would be the Lionshead part # LHWL304 which is a Load Range E with a capacity of 2,830-lb max load at 80 psi and...

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • Bias or Radial Tires for 2014 Forest River Flagstaff
  • Since radial tires flex more than bias tires, they generally have better ground contact, traction, stability, and tread wear. They also run cooler than bias tires do, especially when under a load, so radials tend to last longer. While bias ply tires can be useful for off-road applications like farm use, radials are generally preferable on the highway and for long trips. If you're going to replace your tires anyway, I do recommend going with radials. If you'd like to send me your tire...
