Comparing Goodyear, Westlake, and Taskmaster/Provider Tires for Size ST2358R16


Which is best, Goodyear, Westlake, or Provider?


Expert Reply:

The three tire brands are all great in their own ways but the best all-around will be the USA made Goodyear part # 724860519 for the tire size of 235/85R16. It will be the most reliable, has the highest speed rating at 87 mph and like I mentioned it's the only one made in the USA. It is a Load Range of E.

Westlake is the best non-USA tire part # LHWL410. This is actually a Load Range G (the Goodyear is only available in F) so if you need the higher capacity 4,080-lb max load at 110 psi over the 3,640 lb at 80 psi of the Goodyear this is the way to go. The Westlake has a higher speed rating too at 81 mph and also has a great warranty as well.

The Taskmaster brand of tires are a great bargain orientated tire but we've found they do work great for people and our customers really like them. They have a great reputation as well. The part # TTWPRG235R16 has the highest weight capacity too at 4,400 lb per tire at 110 psi. So if you need the highest capacity available this is the way to go. Speed rating is also 81 mph.
