Westlake SL369 Tire Review & Rating

Built to provide dependable performance both on-road and off-road in light terrain, the SL369 from Westlake Tire is designed for drivers of all types of pickups, SUV’s and crossovers. With an aggressive tread pattern and deeper tread blocks, the SL369 features a longer lasting tread life at a much lower cost than leading competitor tires.

A tougher all-season tread compound and unique tread pattern combine solid dry and wet traction on the street with the strength and durability needed for driving off-road in grass, dirt, sand, gravel and light mud. Added siping around the tread further enhances grip on and off road.


Westlake SL369 Tire Reviews

The tire’s wide circumferential grooves channel away water for increased wet traction, while also reducing the risk of hydroplaning. An integrated tread block design provides added traction on dry pavement. Westlake’s variable pitch tread sequence reduces outside road noise for a more comfort ride quality.

Inside the tire you’ll find twin steel belted construction and a polyester cord body for added strength and durability, as well as more even treadwear. Sizes ranging from 15-17 inches in LT and non-LT models are available, and select sizes come with a load range E rating.

Pros

  • On and off road traction
  • Comfortable riding tire
  • Treadlife
  • Value for the lower cost

Cons

  • Would like to see more off-road performance in deeper mud
  • Additional sizes needed

Overall Thoughts

The SL369 fits the needs of most drivers looking for one of the lowest costing all-terrain tires on the market. While the performance does not match that of BFGoodrich, Michelin, Nitto, Cooper and other well known tire models, it does hold its own for what it is. Traction on dry and wet surfaces is good, as is light terrain use.

Ride comfort is better than you might expect from a cheaper tire like this, and treadlife is decent.

Overall, this is one of the better low cost off-road models in this class of tires.

  1. I have bought the SL368 size 285-70-17 for my 2008 Silverado. I have 10,000 miles on them and still have pretty good tread left. But they are as noisy as a set of Super Swamper tires. I will not buy another Westlake tire for that reason! Excessive NOISE!! It doesn’t even say what ply they are on side wall like most tires. They ride ruff like they are a12 ply.

  3. I have a set of 265/75/16 on my Dodge Dakota. Less than 10,000 mile and doing great. No road noise and rides smoothly.

  4. I have a. 1997 Chev express 2500 van. I have only put on 2000. Kms so far they look like a good tire lots of people say no good for the winter I cannot see that very aggressive tread if you drive normal I can see them being good

    if you drive like an idiot won’t matter on the tire.

  6. I have the 265 70 r17 on my Silverado, best tire I’ve ever owned…Smooth ride and got over 50,000 miles on them… Highly recommended

  7. Im running lt2756518e on 2010 f150 fx4 have almst 40,000 moles on them and plenty of tread left well satisfied

  8. I was thinking of buying for my Tacoma on disability and can’t afford high dollar ones and from my experience they often don’t perform as well. The last ones and are on now are Nexens and wish I could afford but they’ve really gone up and can understand why they’ve been excellent tires and even in snow. Does anyone know how these perform in snow?

  9. Does anyone know the recommended tire pressure for the LT 265/70R 17???
    It says 80psi on tire but, just seems like a lot of pressure to me.
    Just bought a Tacoma with 4 brand new ones on it & they have 40psi in them.

    1. Because it’s an LT tire. Light truck tires are not really for smaller trucks, but 250/2500 and 350/3500 etc. and you will need 50 psi or more for that tire, and your trucks air sensors may not like that.

    2. The 80 PSI shown on the tire would be the maximum air pressure the tires are rated for. Check the vehicle manufacturer’s label for the correct pressure for normal driving without additional load in your vehicle.

  10. I bought 4 sl369 west lake tires for my 2008 Silverado 1500 I have put just over 11000 miles on them and they are 50% worn out I did rotate them once at 6000 miles the rubber is Way To SOFT and they are somewhat noisy I Will NEVER BUY THEM AGAIN. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

    1. I’ve had the high dollar tires do the same thing. Coopers were the worst. I fixed every one of them once, and 2 of them twice. Small rocks from our gravel road. Never used tires aggressively, just everyday drivers. They worked great in the heavy snow of MT winters. Had them studded because we also have lots of icy conditions. But at 27,000 they were shot. Several people I know have these Westlake SL 3699 A/T tires, and had great success, well past 35,000 mi. That’s why I’m giving them a go. Will update after I run them through the winter. I check pressure weekly and rotate every 5000 mi. Air is pretty cheap compared to a new tire. 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab 4×4.
