I have these exact tires but cannot find a speed letter anywhere. There is nothing after this Westlake 235/80R16E.

Where is that speed rating found on these tires?

I have a spare ST235/80R16E Westlake tire at home. So I checked this tire slightly to the right; as I was looking at the tire and down. There is 129/125L molded in to the tire. This is the load and speed rating of the tire. The reason for the 129/125 numbers are if used in a dually application than the tire is rated at 125 at maximum air pressure of 110 PSI.

The L rating is the speed rating and is good to 75MPH if you want to go that fast!

There is also a letter designation for loading which is G and states a 14 ply tire.

Hope this helps?

Our Westlake tires made our first 8000 mi. trip to Alaska then replaced them with 14 ply just for piece of mind. I replaced one that blew out but I think it was my fault as I missed the tapered block going up on the curb parking at home.

Here are the photos I promised you. The first is a overall tire photo and the second is the close-up of the area.

Fwiw, the manufacture did confirm that the 235/85R16E was speed rated at 75...not that I plan on it, but always good to know.

Ok little confused here. The 235/85R16 are a G rated not E. The 235/80R16 are E rated. My understanding is the tires that come on the Columbus are the E rated tires as I was told by the factory. The ratings can be checked in the link posted by OakLevel.

Anyone with 235/80R16 that can confirm the speed rating. They do look like decent enough tires and I will run them a year or 2 before switching.

Jim34RL did your trailer come with the 235/85R16's?

I hope the 235/80R16 are also rated for 75. I also do not plan on running that but I do normally set my cruise around 63 on the flats and I would like to know I am not right on the edge of the tire rating.
