Linglong has made that tire under a couple of names. Prometer was on the sidewalls of first set and linglong on this last set.  Same tire. Linglong is the maker. If you look up ratings for their street tires they are POS.LOL!!!! Horrible wet and dry traction and braking distances you need to pack a lunch for. LOL!!!!!!! That trailer tire ,in the only size they make in a trailer tire SFAIK,is the best one out there especially for the price.

largest local tire place quoted $440 for Westlake 10 ply 225/75-15.  He sells sevaeral brand trailer tires and says this is the most trouble free one.  Mostly good reviews online, esp of the trailer ones.
10plys are way overkill for what I'm doing, and thats what I want.

Anyone here ever used them?

Well in my life long trailer tire journey, it appears all tires are POS.  All brands you will find someone whos not happy.  I believe 50% are probably from owners neglect.  (tire pressure, load, speed) being major contributing factors.  So I will be buying the strongest tire for a 15" wheel, 10ply (havent found 14's) hoping that they will be more than fine for my application.  I'm under 7000 loaded. 
Wish me luck....................... bs1 bs1 bs1
