I have them on my trailer, have had no issues after 9,000 miles... Yet...
I think the general consensus is all the trailer tires blow except for the Kuhmos, Maxxis, Hankook, and a few say the GY marathon.

I have them on our 2013 & no issues to date ....... my sons restoration project Mustang had them on it (P- passenger car tire) when he bought it....... showing serious dry rot & always held air so I am not concerned about mine on the camper. But will replace them at 5-6 years 2-3 more years to go....

Luck of the draw on these and other Chinese tires. I had stock Chinese tires on my new 2011 Keystone Outback 5er, 36 ft. Three years in; looked like NEW, 12,000 miles, Florida Turnpike, 62 mph, bang!
$3,200 later, ( $1200 after ins) .
I NOW run a TPMS and NEVER leave home without it. I did and do monitor tires frequently when traveling, always COLD.
We avoided a possible accident in FL thanks to a tourist bus who signaled us. We NEVER FELT IT. I am POSITIVE, another mile on the remaining good wheel and BAM-O!!
We traded the Outback because of floor plan.
I hope to get 3 years out of these tires and then over to MAXXIS.

I had Westlake tires and never had a problem, I also installed a TPMS. On the camper I have now, I have Goodyear tires and even if I trade campers the Goodyear tires will go on the new camper

Westlake came on my triple axle 42' Columbus I have about 5000 miles on them and no issues so far. The tires were built in 2013 so in a few more years I'll replace them from age. They Still look new so far. I use 303 protectant on them so the don't dry out and crack I run 80# air in them. My buddy has them on his RV and he has at least 20,000 miles on his Westlake tires.
