I've decided to hold onto the Westlakes until they age out. I will be keeping close tabs on them, and have a good TPMS. The Westlake issues were from years back, and appear to have been addressed, I have seen no recent issues/articles involving them. I'm interested in alternatives, so I can have an option without wringing my hands trying to figure it out under pressure. I have emailed Westlake corporate about not being able to find the OEM tire size online. They did not bother replying, which does not inspire confidence in their business.

Change tires to Endurance

Trailer: 19FD Geo Pro, off road pkg:

Original factory tires: ST235/75R15 (60psi) Westlake
Swapped out after 2 months new...

Replaced with Good Year Endurance LT225/75/R15 (80 psi).
Load range E

Replaced all 3 (single axle, and spare).

Better gas mileage (by at least 1 1/2-2 mpg), rides way better, 100% peace of mind.

Upgrade 2018 Geo Pro 18FBS to 15" tires and off road tires

HI Everyone:

Update please. when can I get the wheels and tires to upgrade from the 14" stock to the 15" Off Road type?

Also, will the bolt pattern on the exiting hubs work?

I’m looking for replacements for the “China bombs” before we even get our trailer. Heard too many recent horror stories. Looking at the Goodyear endurance by many recs. I can only find the ST version though, not an LT. everything else the same including the load range E. Is there much practical difference between the LT vs ST version? Do they still even produce the LT version?

Wayne, just for the record, you really have to be specific when you talk about China bombs. In my case, my Westlake off road tires on my Geo have been fine, and I have not heard of a single failure.

The same size and load range of a LT tire is far less than a liked size ST tire.

Example:
LT225/75R15 LRE provides 2755# of load capacity at 80 PSI.
ST225/75R15 LRE Provides 2830# of load capacity at 80 PSI.

Tire industry standards are very specific with this statement: Replacement tires MUST provide a load capacity equal to or greater than what the OE tires provided.

You should call LionsHead Tire. They are a major OEM provider for Westlake tires.

Thanks Airdale. So far really like my Westlake OEMs. Several thousands miles on them still no problems. Approaching end of our 2nd season of use.
