Platinum Plus Warranty with Roadside Assistance

This tire-and-wheel assembly comes with a Platinum Plus warranty that includes complimentary roadside assistance for 2 years. If your trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change out the flat tire with your existing inflated spare tire. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to the roadside assistance, this warranty also includes other benefits and services.


Built-In Offset for Dual Applications

This tire-and-wheel assembly is designed to be used in dual-wheel setups. The 5.35" offset allows the wheel to be positioned closer to the trailer frame when used as the inner wheel of the setup. And if you use this assembly as the outer tire and wheel, the offset ensures that it will sit closer to the outside of your trailer. This hub-piloted wheel centers on the hub, not the lugs, and it requires the use of flange nuts (sold separately) for installation.


Durable Acrylic Enamel Finish

Maxion Wheels Vesper Acrylic Enamel Finish

This wheel has a durable acrylic enamel finish on the front. The finish is applied after the wheel goes through an environmentally safe zinc phosphate pre-treatment and is coated with an e-coat primer layer. Compared to powder coat finishes, this finish resists getting chipped from flying road debris or scraped from hitting a curb for a longer period of time. These acrylic enamel wheels performed for more than 1,000 hours in salt spray tests.


Provider Radials

Provider radials are constructed with double polyester cords and double steel belts for increased durability and endurance. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation. Provider radials are bake tested - a process usually reserved for automotive tires - to ensure that the rubber holds up over time.


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"

Video Transcript for Review of Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - TA45FR

Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Provider ST235 85R16 Radial Trailer Tire in a Load Range G on this 16 inch Vesper Silver Dual Wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this tire wheel assembly is designed for dually trailers. You can see the wheel they use as a high wheel offset, and that allows the assembly to be used as either the inner or the outer wheel of a dual wheel setup. Has a high offset.

The opposite on this is 5.35 inches, and it's either a positive or negative depending on how you use the wheel, inner or outer. And the offset is always measured from the center line of the wheel to where this mounts onto your trailer. So if it goes this way, it'll be positive, it goes the other way, it'd be negative.Now this is a nice heavy duty sturdy steel dual wheel, has the four hand holes you can see here. There's two right up here, two right down here. So total four, and it does use a silver acrylic enamel finish to resist chipping and other damage, better than the powder coat finishes.

Basically this finish is applied after a zinc phosphate pre-treatment and then an e-coat primer layer. Gives you excellent corrosion resistance, has a salt spray rating of more than a thousand hours and the center disc portion of this wheel, this whole center disc here, it is spun form from fine grain steel. And as you can see, it's welded into place all the way around the wheel for strength and durability. And this wheel is a hub piloted wheel. Basically what that means it's going to center right on this pilot hole diameter right here, so when you put this on your trailer, this wheel is going to center by fitting exactly into this hole.

And that's a 4.88 inch pilot hole diameter.Now because of that, it does require the use of 5/8th inch by 18 size flange nuts for installation. Those are not included. We do sell those separately on our website. They're part number 95188 and they're usually listed on this product page as a related product.Now the tire that's on this wheel, it is a radial tire. It is constructed with double steel belts, double polyester cords for nice long life.

It's great for highway use. They do use a nylon tread firming belt overlay around the tire to prevent tread separation, and they even offer tread depth bars in here like you'll see on passenger car tire. That gives you a quick visual indication of how your tread is wearing. The tire itself is bank tested to ensure that the rubber holds up over time. And as we mentioned, it is marked as an ST tire, which is special trailer tire, has the sturdy sidewalls so they can handle the heavy loads. And it is created specifically for trailers. It's not intended for use on any other vehicles.Now this whole assembly does meet the DOT, Department of Transportation specifications, and it will exceed the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Now the wheel itself, the diameter inside the inside is 16 inch diameter on the wheel. The width on just the wheel is six inches wide. Bolt pattern on this wheel is a 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. And as we mentioned, it does use the flange nut size of five/8th inch by 18. Weight capacity on just the wheel by itself is 3,860 pounds. We mentioned the pilot hole diameter is 4.88 inches. And the tire size, which will be stamped on the sidewall, ST for Special Trailer, 23585R16. The R means it's a radial design tire.Section width on this tire is going to be 9.3 inches. Overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 31.7 and its tire is a load range G which means it's a 14 ply rated tire. So the maximum load for this when used in a dual tire application is 3,860 pounds at 110 PSI.Last thing I do want to mention is most all the new trailer tires are coming through with speed ratings on them. And a speed rating is always designated by a letter designation. So on this one, if you look after the size, you'll see two numbers for the load index. And then the letter M. Speed rating M will mean this has an 81 mile per hour speed rating.But that should do it for the review on this Provider ST23585R16 radial trailer tire in a load range G on this 16 inch Vesper silver dual wheel with the 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern.

Excellent service! I was immediately notified the wheel I ordered was not available until November but was given another option of a wheel that could ship immediately. etrailer shipped the alternate wheel and I just received it within a few days. The wheel looks just like the original one ordered. I will definitely order from etrailer on all my trailer needs.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Overall the tires were what I expected but out of 4, 3 of them were missing valve stem caps. Just creates more of a pain to go find 3 more so the valves are protected. I was expecting them to be on a pallet but they were loose and had some scuffs and scrapes on the rims. Once again doesn’t affect performance just takes more of my time to get some silver paint to make sure I don’t have rust issues on brand new rims.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I upgraded my travel trailer to slightly larger wheels and after looking around at prices I settled on these from etrailer.com. I have had the trailer out for one trip (about 375 miles) traveling at a variety of speeds. The trailer handles like a champ and these tires met my expectations completely. You might wonder why this isn't a 5 star rating. Well with only one trip with a small number of miles under our belt I don't want to oversell the product

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Had a blowout on the second use


Comments
I dont know how heavy your trailer is but you want to make sure you are not exceeding the weight capacity of the tires to avoid failure. It is also a good idea to run these tires at max PSI to avoid heat build up that leads to blow outs. Tire manufacturers require the tire to be used at max PSI to avoid failure which may have been the issue in the past. If the weight capacity of the tires was not enough for the weight of the trailer and its cargo then this load range upgrade will give you a higher capacity.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I just received these so I can not comment on how good of a tire they are. I bought these to replace 7 year old tires on a cargo trailer that came with it originally.It probably has less than 5000 miles on it. If these last me another 7 years I will be happy. Not sure about having them filled with the nitrogen since this will be the first tires I have ever had it in. Will update review after I have a chance to drive with them on.

  • Does Wheel and Tire of Provider ST235/85R16 Trailer Tire w/Silver Dual Wheel Have 110 PSI Capacity
    The wheel and tire of the Provider ST235/85R16 Trailer Tire w/ 16" Vesper Silver Dual Wheel w/ Offset # TZ45FR are both rated at 110 psi. When the tire is inflated to 110 psi it has a capacity of 3,860 lbs. The tire has a speed rating of81 mph also. One way to cause premature tire failure is to exceed the speed rating. Most tires are rated at 65 mph so that could have been a problem you had with your other tires. I attached a review video for this wheel/tire for you to check out as well.

  • 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.
