Westlake SA07 Tire Reviews
(Based on 118 Reviews)
Good tires for a good price
This is my second set of SA-07 Westlake tires. Although not run-flats after buying or leasing a new Mercedes-Benz C class sport. First was a coupe and now a sedan, I will immediately swoop out the new run-flat factory tires and store them in large air tight clear trash bags. After three years, if I decide to trade in my Benz or turn in the lease Benz, I will put the run flat new factory stored tires after being mounted-balanced back on vehicle, if not the dealership will want to charge you for non run flat tires regardless if they are new. Some dealerships will pay the cost to replace non run flats to run flat tires to certify the vehicle because on 2015 to new C class: these vehicles do not come with a spare tire. These are great all season tires for the low cost purchase price.
I only had these tires for a month now,but so far they seem to be working fine. I'm happy to have purchase them from you guys Good price as well as on time delivery. I have recommended Simpletire to many of my friends and family... Thanks!
Ordering was not over complicated. Delivery was smooth and the shop I chose was able to put the tires on without issues..Riding good ever since.
I got these tires for my ford because the front didn't match the rear and I really like them.
I'm on my second set of these tires and I just
My car is a Chevy Impala LTZ (3.6 liter, 305 hp V6). I've had these tires now for over 4 months. I've made 4 long (5 hours +) trips with them and they have performed admirably. Considering the price, they qualify as an outstanding bargain. My trips included 2 along the Gulf coast with plenty of rain and the tires channeled the water very well at highway speeds. Mileage and road noise have been good. I'm anxious to see how well they hold up, but if the 1st 4 months are any indication, they will make it to at least 40K miles with no issues. I'd have no hesitation in purchasing another set of these tires. They are significantly better than the stock Goodyears that came on the car new.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Great tires for the price. Even not for the price they are good tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
A good tire for the highway and the ride is comparable to major brand tires. All in all a good tire for the money in my opinion.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
For a cheap tire, these tires have been great so far. I have not rated the tread life yet as I have only got roughly 5k miles on them so far. My previous tires were so loud, you could barely hear yourself think and now it's like driving a new car. Wet and dry traction have been great. Winter traction is unknown at this point but I'll find that out soon enough as winter is quickly approaching.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Tires are nice for price point. But not my choice for summer spirited driving.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

I bought these for my 2008 Cad DTS. The staff was extremely helpful and had the tires to me as promised. These tires ar well built ( made in Thailand) and perform better than expected. Quiet, Smooth. And handle like a performance tire. These are the tires you want. Can't beat the price.
I bought these to finish out winter in my FWD VW and I love them. They are not great in the snow but they dig in and get the job done if you do not wish to have a dedicated winter set. They work great for high speed fun as well and respond very well.
Installed 4 on my 2015 Genesis awd, took a 1500 mile trip to Northeast in January, had all types of driving conditions, car and tires handled very well, no complaints, I would recommend Westlake tires.
Great all season tires with awesome snow traction. Can't beat these tires for the price. If they last two years, they are worth it to me as they are 1/3 the price of the OEM tires!
I checked and found Westlake is the 5th largest tire producer on the planet ... I was also needing a good value and the affordability of the SA07s was terrific ... i read Westlake cistomer reviews from many sources and they were assuring .... I purchased the performance set of 4 Westlake SA07s for my new used XR8 Jaguar from Simple Tire via Ebay and then a 5th directly from Simple Tire (Priced better if you purchase directly from Simple Tire) ... All the tires shipped and arrived as promised ... A great tire value and as a first time buyer vendor Simple Tire was an impressive seller ... I has been a positive experience in all categories ...

This Tire is Awesome wears like Iron And grips great have had them on 3 different cars BMW X5 , Audi TT quattro And a Fotd focus and the have performed great on all in all kinds of conditions
The price is too good to pass up with an overall rating of 4.5. Michelin would be 3.5 times more expensive so it's worth the gamble.
I haven't put many miles on these yet but am very satisfied so far. These were actually recommended to me buy a friend who owns a tire store. Simple Tire price was $18 per tire cheaper though. I will buy more to replace the other tires on the car as needed.
Pretty good tire for the price paid. I would recommend it and buy it again.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Great tire for even a greater priceBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I bought these tires for a 2012 Subaru WRX STI. They were priced right and and shipping was free to an installer. They handle great on dry road and in wet conditions. They are a little less responsive in the wet weather. When driving through heavy rain conditions, they tires seem to want to hydroplane easily, but for normal rain its no problem. They are smooth and handle the bumps pretty good compared to my old tires. They are quiet as i would expect from new tires. I cannot comment on tread life as i have only put 2200 miles on them. They still look new at this point from normal spirited driving. I would recommend these tires to anyone looking for a good quality tire at an amazing price.
Very pleased with them so farBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Honestly for the price it really can’t be beatBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
We'll see how they do in the long run, but they are much quieter than the garbage that was on my little microvan before. They were worn nearly to thread, and very noisy. These are quieter so they feel a bit softer, and more sticky which are good qualities. They are wide, so wet handling suffers just a bit for that as it does on almost all tires sub-300$ each in price. But they do the trick. This is Ohio, so winter will be the test on the A/T tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Purchased for drift Burners on my drift car. These babies lasted an entire 20 laps which is pretty good. The traction seemed pretty normal through the runs. I blew one out during the burnout competition but hey that's what I bought them for. Plenty of smoke.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Great tires at a cheap price. I purchased these for my Toyota Corolla and will definitely do again. However I must warn you that there is a bit of ride noise after first putting them on but it subsides after the first 5000 miles,By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

All ways order my tires from y’all and never have any problems. Love them.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I haven’t had these tires very long, but so far I am pleased with the performance of them and the price was very very reasonable. I will most definitely use simpletire.com in the future for both my car and my wife’s car. Order was shipped and received within just a few days, couldn’t be happier with my purchase.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
OK so I like the tires other than the noise aspect. They are good tires but they are very loud. If I would have known that they were going to cause all this noise I definitely would have gone with a different tire. But as far as performance... So far so good. I would say they are great tires and handle very well for the price..that is if you don't mind the noise.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

The best tires I’ve ever owned! Discount Tire refused to sell these to me saying a that I wanted a better tire for my Mercedes and tried to sell me Continentals again for a much higher price. So I went to Simple Tire...they sold for less and the tires are fantastic! Grip well and quiet! Love ‘em!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

I put the tires to real good use and after all that they are still a amazing tire with lots of tread on them! 100/100 ill forsake buy againBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

You can't beat these tires for the price! So much quieter than the tires I replaced. Would definitely buy again. Cant comment on tread life or winter traction yet.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
2013 Chevy Impala LTZ The tires performed great on our vacation/trip from Iowa to Texas, then to Utah and finally back to Iowa sum 3,600 total miles in all. We traveled through thunderstorms (high winds and heavy rainfall), through the desert, through the mountains which also had extremely dense fog (clouds) and light rain but coldest temperatures only reached around 34°F so no snow driving (I run snow tires starting mid-late fall). I have not pushed the limits of these tires yet due to the fact it was a family trip, but obiding to posted speed limits and driving with common sense through a heavy rainfall/windy thunderstorm, the tires got the job done and are barely worn. 4 star rating on noise only because I've experienced driving with more tires and brands then the average Joe. All in all, premium tire for economy price.
I drive my vehicle like I stole it and sometimes even harder than that and these tires have performed flawlessly and have given me some great winter driving traction in some of our worst snow storms here in PA. I am truly impressed and never expected such great traction and reliability from such a low cost tire. Only one downside which can be alleviated by radio volume is a little more road nose than the OEM tires that came with my car from factory. But I will deal with that as it is not real bad or a deal breaker. I will definately be buying this brand of tire when it's time to get new ones.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tire is great I love them I can't write anything for winter because it summer timeBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are perfect except I wish they would last a little bit longer. On my Chrysler Crossfire, with moderate to medium driving, I got about 35k miles from my last set. Bought them again bc they handle brilliantly, especially in the rain, and are great value for money.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Good grip, good road noise, a lot better than the near bald tires they replaced on my Mazda 5. Winter use is unknown as of yet, hopefully they'll do well. For wide tires wet traction isn't bad at all.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Overall a really good tire. Softer than I hoped they'd be in the sidewalk taking a little away from the dry handling. Very good wet handling and a quiet ride. Definitely the best value I've ever ran across in a set of tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

The best place to buy tires and will keep buying from y’all. Thanks 🙏
I just got the tires they handling great! did rain or snow yet so can say nothing yet
Great tires for the price, would purchase again. Have not tested in wintery weather.
I bought these for drift tires and they gripped surprisingly well and wore completely down without chunking. I was impressed for the price.
So far so good, the ride is so great, silent, my old pricy tires on my FX35 2011 was so noisy. This tire is amazing, quiet my only possible concern is how long it will last but anyway half of the branded expensive tires.
So far so good good tire haven’t put a lot of miles on them yet seem to have good grip quiet ride so far I’m happy
Going to need two more soon
I use the tires for drifting, they are a good deal. I get about 3 runs out of them at 600 horsepower in 3rd gear.
First full day of driving with the new tires, noticed that they take 50psi and the sidewalls are fairly soft, which I would attribute to them needing 50psi cold. My previous Forceum Hexa tires were stiffer but way more noisy. These are quiet and cornering is a bit wishy washy due to being soft being a 40series anyways. So far I like them and will update every so often.
just an outstanding value. I drive 30k miles a year and Ive had these for over 2 years with plenty of tread left. I do rotate on each oil change. A bit noisy but I can live with that. Living in Florida summers get very wet and it does fantastic in the rain. Highly recommend it.
have around 8000 miles on my 245-40-19 Westlakes and they have been great.. no snow experience where I live but dry and wet handling is perfect. slight bit of noise around 65 MPH when new but that has faded..
Very Impressed with the tires so far and how fast Simple Tire sgmhips out and received.
These ties are very good. I my car overall feels like it rides better than my older ties. I have been driving in rain, snow, and various winter conditions and do not slide as much.
These tires handle very well and look good on my vehicle! Very good investment and price. I will definitely purchase again!
Tires seem to be pretty good, especially for the price! Winter is coming, so we'll see how they do!
Great bang for buck. I was skeptical at first but had good reviews. Will def but again.
Ran these on the rear at a drift event. They were awesome. 6 of them lasted an entire day including a competition. No chunking or de-laminating at all. They have high grip for the price. When they started to get hot a simple drop of tire pressure brought the grip right back. 100% worth the money. Would highly recommend. I even ran the 8th pair (after they were mostly worn out) on the street on unbalanced spares and I couldn't even tell that they were almost dead. Decent grip even with a welded diff.
Great tire, great price
Bought these for my genesis coupe, and after reading the previous reviews a lot of people said they preform just as well as the "top" brands. They're pretty decent but I I do lose traction a lot in the back when I excellerate pretty hard. Since I installed these tires I've never seen my traction control light flicker as much as it does now. Had the tires over a month now. Drove in the rain a few times but nothing crazy they held up pretty good. Can't comment on thread life or winter performance. If they last a long time I won't mind buying again. If not I'll just spend the exrra money and go back to continentals.
Nice quiet tire ( compared to the Bridgestone ecopias I took off) and a simply fantastic price. And also, lightning fast less than 24 hour delivery to my door. The only thing I don't like is the supposed rim protection these tires have don't help to keep these rims from getting damaged. Great deal and I will buy all my tires from some tire from here on out!
great price super fast shipping great tires for the money. will buy again
Great tires for the money. 2nd pair i bought.
I have had absolutely no problems with the tires and also no problem with this company will definitely buy from again soon I have three other vehicles will put their tires on all of them
They seem fine
Awesome tires. They stick to the road. The pirelli tires they replaced would spin out if I gave the car too much gas. Road noise is less with these tires. Ride comfort is better. This tire is basically better than the previous tire in every category.
These tires are rated by DOT similar to the Michelin Primacy MXM4, which is what I replaced with the Westlake. Both my wife and I are unable to notice much difference in looks, handling, performance. Great inexpensive tire.
Very nice tire good deal for money
Very nice tire good deal for money
Did one autocross day on these tires, otherwise normal street driving. Very impressed with the traction and handling thusfar. Great performance tires, especially for the price. Can't rate tread life yet, only 1k miles so far.
So far so good great value for the money best purchase this year.
tires are good, way better than what i had before and they were the same size 225/40/18. would buy again in the future.
very fast shipping,i will never buy tires from anywhere else
probably the best economy tire I've ever bought. I love how the tires grip on dry pavement and on wet. tire roll take getting use to I'd say it's moderate but definitely not a deal breaker. tread ware seem to be good I've put atleast 3000 on them in the last 2 months and they have barely warn... tireshe are just as good as some of the higher up name brands and offers alot for the money. my favorite feature has got to be the rim protection edge implemented into the tires.. tires are even better than the Goodyear eagle sports I had which sucked ass on wet pavement.. haven't gotten to drive in snow yet so I can't review on that... yes I will buy again and recommend to anyone looking for a awesome tire without the high price of the namebrands.
I live in Dillon Montana where we experience all 4 seasons, the reviews I have read on these tires have been very helpful in making my decision on purchasing these tires. I bought the 225/45ZR18 95W, so far they have lived up to my expectation. We own a 2012 Chevy Cruz, the tires look great on it.
Fantastic tires for the price.
I love these tires,they came faster than I expected and I've had no problems so far. They ride great, grip the curves. I couldn't be more happy
I wasnt sure about these tires because the installer threw them on a set of rims I had purchased but so far I am pleasantly surprised with how good they are. Living in Florida I dont have to deal with the snow so I cant comment on that but it does rain A LOT here and these tires handle the wet pavement better than any budget tire Ive bought from my local Tire Kingdom or Tires Plus. I do drive about 30k miles per year so I'll reserve commenting on tread life but I cant foresee them being any worse than the others Ive bought. There's a bit of road noise at around 40-50 mph but otherwise the wet handling makes up for its short comings. Definitely buying them again and I'll be installing a set on my daughter's car soon. Very happy.
Great Tires at a great price, What can I say AAAA++++
I'm writing this review not to bash Westlake tire Co. just my experience with these tires. I purchased these 215/55R17 Westlake SA07 94V in December 2013 for my 2011 Malibu 1LT. I loved the tires, quiet, good ride, not great for cornering but not to bad, they do pull the car on uneven road surfaces such as parallel cracks. But my biggest surprise was when I drove on snow for the first time with them. These tires are listed as all season tires but I would not recommend these for anyone that drives on snow covered roads. Traction is very poor just trying to get the car up to speed my traction control light on the dash is on a lot even if I take it easy with the accelerator, but the dangerous part is trying to stop mostly if the roads are just a little snow covered or slushy the anti lock system goes crazy and you cant stop. Keep in mind I have driven in WI snow for 38 years, 2 years with my Malibu with the factory tires. I contacted Westlake about the Danger on snow with these tires with no responds at all. I realize these tires are a performance tire but one reason I bought them was they are listed as all season, I personally feel this should be removed from any listing for these SA07 94V tires they should be listed as a summer tire only.

So far so good no complaints... nice ride
