Westlake Tires

I have a 2017 Cedar Creek Champagne. I have take two trips totaling less that 500 miles. The tread separated on one of the Westlake G rated 235-85 R16 Tires. I cannot find one available having searched the 50 mile radius of Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Anyone else had any mishaps with these tires?

Therein lies the reason these are referred to as "China Bombs". Manufactured in China and NO INDICATION before they go, kaa plooooey, BANG!!

My Power kings on our new 2011 Keystone had a similar experience on the Florida Turnpike, 50 miles south of Disney at 60mph. Had to mount the spare and travel to central GA with out a spare. Also did $3,000 in damage to the 5er. Out of commission for 12 weeks at the time.

Painful in both lost use and out $1000 deductible plus $275 for tire which is considered " wear and tear"; right!

Thus proving also that not even the Champagne's come with G614's on them.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE inform Cedar Creek Warranty so they can understand what they're selling. They've told me these are worthwhile and quality tires.

My unit came with the Westlake D rated tires. I've been to Colorado and back, Houston, TX and back, Nashville and back, plus too many shorter trips to list and have not experienced any problems with the tires. I use the TST
507 TPMS system on my unit. Knock on wood, but I must be one of the few, if not the only person to not have any problems with the Chinese tires. Now watch me jinx myself and have a problem after I submit this post.

I had the Westlake tires on my first Cedar Creek and put at least 10,000 miles on camper and I never had any problems with the tires. Before I brought the camper home I put a set of TPMS TST 507 on camper

Purchased our 2017 Cedar Creek Hathaway Edition in April. We have 1500 miles on the Westlake tires and have had no problems. I do have a TPMS TST 507 so I do keep an eye on them. From what I have found the Westlake tires that are on my Cedar Creek are 14 ply Commercial semi trailer tires. Be sure to post what you find out about your tire.

The tires I have on my current Cedar Creek are G614, I still don't understand why Cedar Creek will not let you option in the Goodyears. I will not buy another Cedar Creek unless I can get the Goodyears, I'll keep what I have

We have four years on our Westlakes with no issues to date. I would not have a problem using another set.

Our son even had a car with Westlake passenger car tires on it.
