    I don't believe I've seen any complaint about them, in a place where we all love to complain.

    I replaced our E rated West Lake tires with Good Year Endurance at the beginning of last season. I no longer worry about our tires when towing. I'm no tire expert, but it was easy to see that that Goodyear tires were far superior.

    Why are you calling them “China bombs”

    I couldn’t care less about the political correctness of it but it is just so tiring on this forum
    Seems like the “in” thing to say
    I personally would like the term banned from the forum by moderators
    They have either served him or the previous owner very well since 2018 so it is confusing as to why he referred to them as bombs

    I have the Westlakes on my Reflection. I don't see any reason to change perfectly good tires. I may have a blow out this coming season, or not. Maybe in the next season, or not. If not by then I will change them. Not because of any thing other than they are going to be of age by then. I did some research and the biggest factors, which most of you know anyway, with tire failure of any kind is underinflation, heat (which is mostly caused by under inflation) and going over the speed rating of the tires. The Westlakes may have been/are more susceptible to those factors. Don't know. I'll use my new TMPS system this year, and keep an eye on everything with walkarounds and so on. I really don't want to spend $800.00 or more prematurely for new tires. My two previous TT's never gave me issues and were driven thousands of miles on the factory tires, but they were not nearly as heavy either.

    Just took our first trip with our new 2610ML. First tire blew after less than 1000 miles. Not sure I want to keep them. Didn't think I needed a TPMS but going to get one.
