Trailer Wheel and Tire in Size 215/75-17.5 to Replace Westlake 235/85-16


I have a 5th wheel RV with a GVWR of 18,000 pounds. It has Westlake 235/85R16 tires on it that I need to replace. I really dont want to buy Westlake as my replacement so I was looking at the Cooper and Goodyear tire and wheel assemblies you have with H load ratings. Can I use these on a RV? I see the outside diameter is about 1.75 inches smaller than the 235/85R16s. I dont see why this should be a problem. Im I missing something here? Is there any other reason why this tire size wont fit on my 5th wheel? I have 9/16 studs on 8inch diameter. Also, can you give me a comparison between the Coopers and the Goodyear? Why would I choose one over the other.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Cooper Work Series Trailer Wheel and Tire 215/75R17.5 Radial Tire w/ 17-1/2" Wheel # LH28FR would work great on your trailer to replace your Westlake ST235/85R16 that you referenced. It has the correct stud size as well.

We also do have the similar Goodyear G114 215/75R17.5 Radial Tire w/ 17-1/2" Lynx Wheel # LH93FR that you mentioned. Whenever available I recommend the Goodyear trailer tires as they are only option made in the USA and they have the best reputation for reliability and performance so that would be what I would recommend for you.
