We've got about 8500 miles on our Westlakes, little sign of wear and running fine. We seldom go over 60, max speed ever is 65. Its okay for folks to pass us, we are not in a hurry.

I have at least 23,000 on my Westlake tires. Age and weight are issues but they seem fine on my 30 month old 21ft FRBS FLAGSTAFF.
Only problem an occasional nail or screw.

The OP has about 8000-10,000 miles on them and they look like new. So we're debating if they're any good? Hmmm.

Our W&P had Westake E rated tires. The best E rated tire I've ever had. They aren't even in the same category as the old TowMax tires. I also had over 8K and they looked great.

I had G614s put on our Vengeance but if I was going with E tires, it would certainly be Westlakes. Forest River uses them a lot.

10k on my Westlakes in the last year. I keep them at 80psi, VERY rarely run over 65mph - and then for only a short (minutes) time. Absolutely no problems, and they still look brand new.

Have westlake D load rated set. Only had them for a year but have had no issues and no reason to swap out with something else. Will probably upgrade to load range E like others have mentioned when the time comes. One thing I really liked about the GY Marathons I had on my last trailer, they had a thicker belt on the sides that would presumably help with accidental curb contacts. The WL treadwear is in line with my expectations for last season (2000-3000 miles).

We have a Flagstaff 27RLWS with Westlake tires, and have about 18,000 mi. on them, including a trip up the ALCAN Highway. We haven't had any problems, but have TPMS on them, and I only have to add air or nitrogen about twice a year. They usually run at about 100 degrees F. and I have them at 55 PSI. They have used 1/3 of the tread, when compared to the original spare.

I don't bother... life is short, go camping!

Cool West Lake Tires

West Lake tires came as original equipment on the Solaire and this will be the fourth season on them. They look great and have about 1/2 of the tread wear left with about 12,000 miles on them. I had to replace the valve stems after the first year as they were all cracked. I keep them inflated to max pressure.
