Any of you ever used the Westlake Trailer Tires?? My local tire supplier ordered 8 of them in for me today. ST rated 10 ply 225/75/15.
$72.50 per tire.
I think it was a pretty good price after researching pricing.
Opinions?

Thats good for what they are. I run load range c tires on my small trailer and get them at $59 a piece installed. They are only bias ply though. I only run cheap china tires because I burn through them fast.

Keep in mind Westlake tires are a cheap tire they don't last they are round and black with tread. They may come with other brands tread pattern but they are far from a quality tire.

Westlake is a Chinese brand involved in at least one recall. Just google "westlake recall". Here's one example:

The trailer tires may be okay, and I'm not saying they aren't. Just passing this along.
