Radial Tires vs. Bias Tires

Radial tire vs bias tire graphic

Radial ply tires are designed for trailers that are towed on the highway. The cords on a radial tire are positioned at a 90-degree angle to the direction of travel so that they lay across the width of the tire from wheel lip to wheel lip. This construction prevents the cords from rubbing against one another when the tire flexes, unlike the cords on a bias ply tire. As a result, radial tires have less rolling resistance and heat buildup, which leads to a longer tread life and improved steering at higher speeds.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Tires and rims are great. Customer service helped me in selecting the right tires. Couldn’t be more happy! Great products and great customer service. Will be back for sure.

Tires have worked out great ! Super happy!

by:

Absolutely great tires... I have driven all over Northern Michigan and the upper peninsula with temperatures far below zero in ice and snow never have had a problem with these tires!!!




by:

Tires and rims look awesome. Just wish they weren’t already a year old when I got them. They need a better way to keep stock newer




by:

I get a lot of comments from my fellow sailors now that I fitted these rims to my boat trailer. For me they weigh less than galvanized and never rust. The fact that they look great is a bonus. Took the trailer from California to Texas and back and the tires still look good.




by:

The tires fit beautifully! Shipping was pretty quick, came in just over a week. Happy with my purchase, so far its all good!




by:

Great looking wheels with nice tires!




by:

Excellent customer service. Aluminum wheels and new radial tires from etrailer are improved look and quality for the Bunkhouse camper.




by:

Hello Steve, Thanks for all you help. The lug nuts I called about were actually 12mm x 1.25. Les Schwab was able to verify the size. So close to the 1/2 x 20 that they would go on, but did not feel right. Again thanks for your help, I am happy with the wheels and tires and appreciate the time you spent hrlping me out.




by:

The tire and wheel package for my trailer that I ordered is excellent. Great quality at a good price. And if you haven’t ordered from E Trailer you need to! They always ship fast and have great customer service. THANKS!!!!




by:

so far so good. 6 months




by:

Rodney was professional and sent me updated shipping status. The Kenda tire and wheel look great.




by:

These wheels and tire look like they will do the job, but i will not be able to try them on a long trip till spring, but they do look very nice.




by:

Stickers on the front of rims are very difficult to remove. There is no way to remove them without using a scouring material, even after soaking area numerous times since delivery. No very happy having to spend more than 2 hours trying to make brand new tires and wheels, right out of the box, presentable. Didn’t anybody realize that putting stickers that say “how to remove stickers” would be unnecessary IF STICKERS WERE NOT PUT ONE IN THE FIRST PLACE!




by:

Look great. Awesome value. Thank you!

Tires are working great on my whiskey barrel trailer. They look great.. fast delivery

Nicer than expected.

I ordered the Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel to replace the 12 x 5.30" tires that were on my tent trailer. I received the new wheels VERY fast, in only three days time and was very pleased. The tires are approx. 1/4" smaller in diameter than the ones they replaced, but since they have a flatter tread profile it is hardly noticeable. the tires are slightly wider than the ones they replaced, and the tread is a flat profile, like that of a car tire. The rims appear to be of high quality as do the tires. I am one happy camper!




by:

We Americans love good looking wheels and tires. They can usually make or break the look of a vehicle. These rims are beautifully crafted and appear to be of good quality. Time will tell..
I'm trying a D range Radial trailer tire for the first time. With a couple of cross country trips planned for this summer, I'm hoping that they will run cooler and longer than the bias tires which seem to age very quickly.




by:

Stylish rims and radial trailer tires for the price of bias-ply. Awesome!!!
These tires provide a higher load range and a smoother ride.
Ordered on a Monday and delivered to California on that Thursday!
Very satisfied.




by:

Just installed. The lug nut area was too small and required a thin walled socket. This might not be carried by everyone and cause trouble trying to change tire on the road. I will now have to carry this when I travel.
I haven't traveled yet with them on yet.




by:

Product arrived in good shape.




by:

These tires are as advertised and the wheels are also excellent. Excellent value, excellent quality. Additionally, when you call this merchant with a question they have an incredibly responsive customer service department, who bend over backwards to help you. Just an all around great business. With my two boat trailers and RV I will be back here exclusively in the future.
Thanks etrailer... Tow thumbs WAY UP!!!




by:

Tires arrived in a timely fashion. Items arrived undamaged. Really appreciated the emails from e-Trailer about the shipping process. Information on the site was fantastic. Enjoyed the video overviews.




by:

The rims and tires look great. Unbeatable price that included shipping. Very fast shipping,




by:

The tire and rim was, as I expected. Good product and price. Fast delivery. I purchased them for my Bunkhouse motorcycle camper. Rim is a perfect match along with the radial tire.




by:

Wheels look great! And delivery was pro mpt.

  • 4.80-12 Trailer Tire and Wheel Recommendation for Tear Trailer
    For a high-quality trailer tire that is size 4.80-12 and wheel with a 4 on 4" bolt pattern I strongly recommend the Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel # AM31208, which is also available with different wheels, either # AM31208HWT for an Aluminum HWT Wheel or # AM31208HWTB for an Aluminum HWT Black Wheel.

  • Kenda KR25 Radial Trailer Tire 12" Aluminum Wheels Compared
    Correct, each of the options, the # AM31208HWTB, and the # AM31208 are same tire mounted on a different wheel design. The primary feature being that the # AM31208HWTB has a black interior feature and, an opening within the spoke that the other does not. Both have an offset of 0 and capacity of 1,220 lbs. Each wheel is a 4 on 4" bolt pattern, 12" diameter rim 4" wide with an 8 ply radial tire of 1,220-lb maximum load at 65 psi. This tire has a sped rating of 81mph.

  • Recommended Tire and Wheel Combination for a Pop Up Camper with ST145R12 Tires
    I can help you find a suitable replacement tire and wheel combo for your pop up camper. The Kenda # AM31208 sounds like just the tire and wheel combo for you. It has a ST145R12 radial trailer tire on a 12 inch aluminum wheel that has a 4 on 4 bolt pattern and a load range of D. This aluminum wheel is durable and rustproof and has an attractive "star" spoke pattern.

  • Appropriate Air Pressure and Weight Capacity of # AM31208 Wheel/Tire Combo
    Both the wheel and tire are rated for a maximum capacity of 1220 lbs. The particular tire used on the combo should be kept inflated to 65psi, but the wheel itself can be used with tires that take up to 80psi. There is no minimum acceptable pressure, a trailer tire should always be kept inflated to the maximum air pressure listed on the tire sidewall. Due to the thicker tire sidewall used, under inflating a trailer tire can lead to excessive heat build-up and can accelerate tire wear. A...

  • How to Determine Lug Nut Torque for Installing Trailer Wheels on a Trailer
    It sounds like you are looking for the proper amount of torque to apply to the wheel studs of the trailer you have when mounting the wheels. If the studs you have are 1/2 inch in diameter you would need to apply 90-100 ft/lbs of torque, if they are 9/16 they would require 120-140 ft/lbs.

  • What is the Speed Rating for Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire
    Kenda ST145R12 trailer tire # AM31208 is rated for 65 miles per hour. I do not recommend doing 70 miles per hour when towing a trailer if for no other reason other than the tires are not rated for it. What will happen is that the higher sustained speed will produce excessive heat. Heat is the number 1 enemy of tires. What can make this even worse is that trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall compared to passenger vehicle tires. If under inflated the thicker sidewall will produce...

  • Lug Nut Torque for 16 Inch Trailer Wheel w/ 1/2 inch Wheel Studs
    For a 16 inch steel wheel with 1/2 inch wheel studs, 90-120 ft-lb is recommended. For a 16 inch aluminum wheels, 90-100 ft-lb is what you should use. Be sure to recheck the torque frequently.

  • Is There a Down Side to Going to Higher than Needed Trailer Tire Load Range
    There is no downside to going to a higher than needed trailer tire Load Rating. You will just have more weight capacity than you'd need. The part # AM31208 is a radial tire size ST145R12 which has a wheel with a 4 bolt mounting pattern on it. This would be a great solution for replacing your bias ply 4.80-12 tire size.

The representative informed me that there is a regular valve stem on the Kenda Tire and Wheel # AM31208. She informed me that they have not had any customers have issues with the valve stems. The valve stem installed is sufficient to hold the air pressure of 65 PSI, which is the maximum PSI for the tire. With ST trailer tires, you want to make sure to have the tires inflated...

  • Wheel And Tire Combination For A Marine Trailer
    A 155/80/12 is a typical size rating for a motor vehicle tire and not a trailer tire. A trailer tire comparable to the 155/80/12 would be a 145/80/12. As far as a wheel and tire combination, I recommend the Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel - 4 on 4 - Load Range D Item # AM31208. The 145/80/12 is only going to have about 1/2" difference in height from a 155/80/12 and it is going to be a little skinnier. Since the suspension on a trailer is mounted different...

The # AM31208 has a wheel with the 4 on 4" bolt pattern, so if this matches the bolt pattern on your Jayco this would be a great replacement.

Since you mentioned the trailer is not overloaded we can rule that out. You also mentioned high speed trips. Few if any 12 inch trailer tires are rated for higher speeds than 65 miles per hour.

As long as your radial tires are properly inflated, the radial tires will have improved traction and better tread wear which in turn will give you a more stable ride.
