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...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Best Trailer Tire Option for Size ST175/80R13
  • 6 years is the accepted age that a trailer tire should be replaced at. Going to a radial 175/80R13 would be a great choice too as they ride better and can handle higher speeds. Best option is the part # LHWL101. It has a 75 mph speed rating 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 United...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Tires Blowing Out On 40 Foot Toy Hauler
  • I'm sure that it is frustrating to have so many tire blow outs. There are a few things that make this happen more often, so maybe it will help you isolate the issue. Load capacity. ST (Special Trailer) tires do have a thicker sidewall by design than vehicle tires. This thicker sidewall is often based on ply rating and goes hand in hand with load capacity. Blow outs can happen if your load capacity is greater than the load capacity of the wheel and tire combination as each are rated...

  • Trailer Tire Replacement for Size 165/80R13 on Boat Trailer
  • The tire size 165/80R13 isn't a standard trailer tire size so it's a good idea to get that off the rim. The size 175/80-13 is the closest trailer tire size to that and would work well. It fits rims that are between 4-1/2 inch and 5-1/2 inches wide. I'd go with the part # LHWL101 as it has a higher speed rating of 75 mph and comes with a 2 year roadside assistance program.

  • Recommended Replacement ST225/75R15 Tires for Trailer
  • We do not currently carry Primewell tires so I really cannot speak to their quality or performance. When researching the brand, I was unable to pull up very much information at all. 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. This is an excellent radial tire that has a maximum load of 2,830 pounds at 80 psi and a great maximum speed of 75 mph. These tires are very well built...

  • 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...

  • 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 4,400 lb at 110 psi when using a single tire, and 3,860 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...

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range C and Load Range D Tires
  • The difference between load ranges varies based on the tire size and brand. When comparing two tires of the same size and brand, a load range D tire will always have a greater weight capacity and psi rating than a load range C. However, when comparing two dissimilar tires, such as a size 145/80-12 tire and a size 185/80-13 tire, the load ranges will not correlate with one another. For example, a load range D tire in size 145/80-12 has an average capacity of 1,220 lbs, while a load range...

  • What Does C at the end of Trailer tire Size 205/75R14C Indicate
  • That C at the end of the tire size indicates the Load Range. That's not always included when people list tire sizes so that may be why you have seen the size written two different ways. For a Load Range C tire in that size we have the part # LHWL201 which I really like because it has a higher speed rating at 75 MPH and 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...

  • 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...

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.

  • 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,...

  • 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...
