Everyone has their own opinions on tires and anything else which is great. I feel Westlake tires are very good quality and will continue to use them...... Some people love Michelin Tires I will never own another, worst tires for the money very poor quality, but that is my opinion since I had trouble with three sets in a row (wore out quickly). What I will buy when my Westlake tires age out in a couple years is not known at this time but I would not hesitate to buy another set again.
I am not brand loyal to any tires I have bought up to 20 tires in a year. I have 38 tires on the ground on vehicles at our house as we speak. I have never in 40 years had a blow out or a flat on the road. My families safety is of the utmost importance to me too. I drag all 5 of my trailers up and down the east coast just for personal use. My wife and I put 35,000 to 50,000 a year on our vehicles so decent tires is of great importance to us.
