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"

So far I’m happy with etrailer. Ordered wheel and tires beginning of may and they didn’t have all of them in stock so after waiting till last Monday I rechecked to see what they had and they had these in stock. Changed my order last Monday which was a holiday and still received them on Friday same week. So far trailer pulls great but will know better when I get a good 5-6 tons on them to really know for sure.


Comments
This wheel and tire package worked out perfectly and when they need to be replaced I will order them again. Tires are holding up great, no cracking or abnormal wear. Very satisfied.

Comments
The Kenda tire was installed on my equipment trailer and has endured over 10,600 miles flawlessly and no signs of wear from the heat of AZ sun. I’m usually moving 10-12K machine on a daily basis. When it comes time to replace I’ll be looking for a set of these tires again.

by:

Purchased a used 1101 military trailer and needed new tires and wheels to replace the 8 lug military tires and wheels. The new wheels worked perfectly and looked great. The tires lowered the overall height of the trailer in order to make it easier to tow on my truck.




by:

Product is great, but service is better! My original order for a set of wheels and tires was back-ordered. So, I called in to see if I could swap the product and get something available now. When I called in, I was told that the replacement set would be shipped out the next day. The issue was that I was going to be out of town the rest of the week. She offered to put the order on hold, reserve the product and ship out first thing monday morning. Well, I received the wheels and tires today, couldn't be more satisfied with both the wheels and tires, but the service especially.




by:

This was my first experience with etrailer and I have to say it was a pleasant one. I ordered six tires on rims and the delivery was fast. Rims and tires were exactly as described and fit perfectly on my Dexter torsion axles. I have always had good luck with Kenda tires and have never had any blowouts or abnormal ride/wear issues in the past. I am very satisfied so far.




by:

I ordered this on a Wednesday and got it by Friday that was awesome. The only thing I wish was that I could have found this tire and rim combo with a ST235/80R16 with Black Mod 8 lug

  • Does the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Wheel Come Mounted and Balanced
    Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel # AM32743B undergoes a type of balancing by the manufacturer. Before the tires are mounted on the wheels the manufacturer lines up the light spot on the wheel with the heavy spot on the tire. After mounting the tires are not balanced beyond this. If you want the tire balanced further a tire shop would have to put the tires on a balancing machine and add weights as needed.

  • Can 235/85R16 Trailer Tire Replace a 235/80R16 Trailer Tire?
    So long as you have the clearance to fit the larger tire in your wheel well and if you have a tandem axle trailer, enough clearance (about 2") between the tires then you can absolutely use the larger tire. A 235/85R16 tire is 9/10" larger in diameter than a 235/80R16 tire but has the same 9.3" width and the Kendra # AM32743B wheel and tire combination will work so long as your bolt pattern is 8 on 6-1/2" and you have the room for the slightly larger tire. This has a black Mod Wheel. ...

  • Upgrading Trailer Wheels to a Bigger Size than Stock
    When upgrading your wheels to a bigger size it is crucial to make sure the bolt pattern in the same on the new wheels compared to the old wheels. To measure the lug pattern measure between the lug nuts and count how many lug nuts you have to make sure you order the correct wheels. Kenda Karrier # AM32743B is one of the most common 16x6 inch wheel and tire combos. Another common problem when going with a bigger wheel and tire is going to be lack of clearance in the wheel wells.

  • Best Option to Upgrade from Bias Tire Size 7.50-16 to Radial Trailer Tire
    You are 100% correct! The closest match and best option to upgrade your 7.50-16 LT bias ply tires, is going to be an ST235/85-16 radial tire, like the Kenda Karrier # AM32743B you were checking out. This tire is pre-mounted on a 16 inch diameter by 6 inch wide black mod wheel with a bolt pattern of 8 on 6-1/2 and a load range E (3,640 at 95 psi). You'll just want to make sure the bolt pattern matches and you're staying at or above the load range on your existing set-up. If you're wanting...

  • How to Determine if Tire and Wheel With 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern Fits Trailer
    I can tell you how to determine if the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 # AM32743B will fit your trailer, but we wouldn't have any way of knowing as tires and wheels aren't specific to trailer brands. First, you need to know the number of lugs on your hub, as you'll need an 8-lug hub for the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel # AM32743B. There is also an option for the same tire and wheel combo if...

  • Looking For 235/60-16 Tire Mounted on Dual Trailer Wheel
    The Kenda Karrier 235/80-16 wheel/tire combo you specified, part # AM32743B would have a zero offset, like most trailer wheels do. The only wheel/tire combo we offer in the 235/80-16 tire size on a dual wheel we offer is part # TA45FR from Taskmaster. The silver wheel has a 5.35 inch offset with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The tire is a load range G with the equivalent of a 14 ply rating, good for up to 3860 lbs at 110 psi. Unfortunately, we don't offer a black painted or powder coated...

  • What Load Range Tires Can I Use on the Taskmaster Wheel # TA55VR?
    I went ahead and reached out to my contact at Taskmaster Tires. She confirmed that for the Steel Modular Wheel # TA55VR, load range E, F and G fits if the aspect ratio of the tire is 80 or smaller. For example, the tire size 235/80R16. If the aspect of the tire is 85 or bigger, load range E is the only tire that will fit. An example of that size tire is the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 - LR E # AM32743B. As far as the air pressure...

    The ST235/85-16 tires that we provide all have maximum psi ratings of 80, 95 or 110 dependent on the load rating.

  • Can I Upgrade Trailer Axle From 3,500 lb to 7,000 lb Axle and Keep 14 Wheels
    You can add a heavier axle to the trailer but the rest of the components of your trailer may not be rated for a higher weight capacity such as the suspension components and wheels. If you go from a 3,500 lb axle to a 7,000 lb axle like part # 8327834 you are not going to be able to keep your wheels because more than likely the bearings in the hubs that fit your wheels will not fit the spindle of the new axle. Also the wheels are more than likely not rated for the 7,000 lb trailer weight....

  • Recommended Tires and Leaf Springs for Trailer With Tandem 7,000 Pound Axles
    Starting off with leaf springs for your 7,000 lb axles, we have the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # e64SR. In addition to the leaf springs you will also need the U-Bolt Kit # APUBR-9 and Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # APT5 which will allow you to get everything mounted. Wheels and tires will depend on the size you want and the bolt pattern. For 7k axles I'm assuming your hub assembly has an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern.
