Geo Pro E Pro Off Road Package tire replacement

On my Geo Pro, I have Westlake ST235/75 R15 tires with aggressive tread. Due to the numerous threads I've been reading about 'China bombs' (Westlake is a large Chinese brand with a dubious reputation), I'm considering replacing them sooner than later.

Anybody else with this tire will quickly find out.....there are no other brands of trailer tire in this size! Apparently Rockwood has contracted with Westlake to produce a unique trailer tire size. So if you want to keep the larger tire the trailer came with, what do you do?

Do you have a picture of this tire (tread and sidewall) that you can post? I'm curious about it.

That is interesting. It appears they have the same tread design as their LT tires in the CR857 model, but it does have a higher capacity (Aka load index) of 110/105 vs 104/101 in the LT tire of the same size.

I am assuming the + at the end of the CR857 may be the differentiation between the LT and ST models, but would need to research that more.

Thanks for the pics, as this definitely has piqued my curiousity since I am in the tire business.

Anything you can find out for me would be appreciated, I would want at least the same size tire and load rating. Having no luck at all. I can't even find that particular tire online if I wanted to buy the same one!

Have you tried Lionshead, as that is where FR gets a lot of their tires/wheels?

Maxxis 8008 tires are made in the ST225/75R/15 size, I ordered four new ones on Ebay with free shipping & no tax. When tires arrived they were 3 months old and were made in Thailand. I have now put close to 9000 miles on them without any problems. The tread depth still looks like when new. I will recommend then to you and if you research on this forum, you will find others that love these tires. Load range on the tires I ordered and received is "E".

Other than enhancing trailer braking, just a little bit on gravel roads,why do manufacturers put aggressive tread tires on trailers? They cost more and wear out faster than a highway tread.
