The WESTLAKE RP18 all-season touring tread and siping provide excellent year-round performance. Efficient siping and tread pattern allow for superior water dispersion, while the lower profile design enhances steering response and handling. Step up to a better tire, step into the WESTLAKE RP18.

  • Symmetrical tread pattern allows multiple tire rotation options for increased tread life
  • All-season touring tread and siping provide excellent year-round performance
  • Elaborate siping and tread pattern allows for superior water dispersion

Driving an EV, Nissan Leaf. Purchased the car used and these came on it. The Leaf is not a sporty car so nearly any tire should be OK, but these are, at best, correctly priced. Living in SoCal so no snow, and occasional rain. Dry conditions are OK, not very confidence inspiring. Again, not a sporty car but need to go around corners with some caution. Wet weather is terrible. In SoCal, as it rains so infrequently, the oils in the streets rise to the surface. However, my other car, a Lexus IS250, is far and away a more confident handling car (does not have these tires). Apples and oranges? Yes, to some extent. On the plus side, the fronts didn't wear out until in excess of 34,000 miles, and the rears still have tread (above wear marks). Comfort was just OK but not bad and road noise was pretty good. But as the tires are the contact to the road I would not buy these and am in the process of replacing them.

I found traction overall not great and in wet weather terrible. I will be looking to replace very soon even though I only have about 7k on them! They are a little noisy and handling not the greatest. I'll do a lot more research and real reviews next time. Looking at the choices the technicians gave me I did choose the cheapest - hope not to "pay for it" in the rain!

One of the best tires that I ever bought... it actually surpassed all my expectations... I was a little bit concern by the fact I didn’t recognize the manufacturer... but after a while I saw my dads suv (the one I tend to use every once in a while) wearing a full set of these... that actually set my mind and I don’t regret

They lack grip in wet weather and are an absolute danger. I cannot believe the good reviews. They are made by people blinded by the cheap price and delusional about the quality. Honestly, I can't stress enough, do NOT buy them and I look forward to a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer and those who sell this junk. No way should the gov't allow these to be sold in the US, no way.
