Review of Lionshead Tires and Wheels LHAW165


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Westlake ST175 80 R13 radial trailer tire with a 13" silver mounted wheel. The tire and wheel assembly is ideal for RVs, campers and trailers. It's going to feature the modular style steel wheel. It's going to have a silver eco-finish that's sturdy and rust resistant. The mod design is simply these circular holes here on the wheel. Very sturdy, rust resistant design, nice finish all the way around on the wheel, even here on the inboard side.

Overall the wheel's going to be highly protected from rust and corrosion. It should last a long time. The tire that's on there is going to be a Westlake tire that's made of high-quality rubber that's reinforced by layers of steel and polyester belts, making it great for highway use. Nice tread design on the unit as well. It's going to maximize road contact and traction. It's also going to feature nylon overlays to help prevent tread separation and it's going to have you tread wear indicators that makes it easy to see your tread depth. This tire is inflated with nitrogen.

That's going to help improve fuel economy. It's going to improve breaking and handling. It's going to increase safety. It's going to maintain tire pressure for longer periods of time when compared to when compared to standard air. It's going to help prolong the life of the tire and the wheel.

This is a special trailer tire design. It's going to couple the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. This is created specifically for trailers, so please keep in mind that it's not intended for use on other vehicles. The assembly meets Department of Transportation specifications. Another neat feature is that the tire and wheel assembly comes with a complementary 24-hour roadside assistance program for one year. That's issued from the manufacturer.

When I comes to the dimensions of the rim, this is going to be a 13" diameter rim. It's going to measure 4-1/2" wide. The bolt pattern on the unit is 5 on 4-1/2". What that means is we have 5 bolt holes, and since we have an odd number of holes, on this wheel, to get the measurement you'd measure from the center of one, go directly across and pick either of the two holes across from it and measure to that back edge. On this one, that measurement's 4-1/2". That gives us a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2". It's going to use a wheel load size of 1/2" by 20. and the wheel alone had a capacity of 1,660 pounds. The pilot hole diameter, that's the diameter of this hole in the center, 3.10". It does not offer an offset. Again, our tire size is ST175 80 R13. That's going to give us a section width of around 7" with an outer diameter of around 24". When it comes to the tire capacity, it's a load range C, which gives it a 6-ply rating. Maximum load is 1,360 pounds at 50psi. It does have a speed rating on it, so all the information is printed here on the outer wall of the tire. If you find the tire size, and the load index, it's going to have an L in it, and underneath it's going to say 'Speed rating L'. The L is going to stand for 75 mph. That's going to do it for today's look at the Westlake ST175 80 R13 radial trailer tire with a 1" steel silver mod wheel.
