I have just over 2200 miles on my Westlake 205-75-14 C rated tires and the right rear tire developed a two blisters and went flat. Stopped at a Kaufman Tire Store and replaced it with a Carlisle. The manager told me Westlakes should only be used as a spare. I will probably be ordering Marathon D's tomorrow.

Are you sure the Marathons are available in D' better to go with Kumho 857 or Hankook RA08. Both are true load range D, 8 ply rated.

I bought my Hankooks from the busdepot.com and had a local shop mount and balance them. Hankook size 195r14 is the correct diameter and carries 2100# instead of the 1760 that range c carries. They are also rated to 99 mph. I think they were around $100 each and about 60 to ship, anyway total came to $500 and some change, sold the old (1 Year) westlakes for $150 to local guy who needed a set for his utility trailer.

I have Goodyear Marathon LR D's on my Flagstaff, but they are 15".
