Will the Taskmaster # AM30620 be a Compatible Replacement for a Wheel with a 2.84 inch Pilot Hole

Question:

I have tires that are 4.80-12 but only have max speed of 55 so I want to upgrade. The wheels have a 2.5 inch pilot hole diameter and I can only find this one TTWAA12WS . That also has a 2.5 inch pilot hole. Wondering if this will be a good fit for me and if so what is the max speed rating.

As long as your current hub uses the 4 on 4 bolt pattern that the wheel that comes with the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 4 on 4 - Load Range C Item # AM30620 uses, then this will fit perfectly on your trailer. The 2.84 inch pilot hole will work find with your current setup so the spindle diameter will not be an issue. This combination does have a speed rating of 65 mph so you will be able to safely travel at speeds greater than 55 mph that your current tires are limited to.

Please keep in mind that this tire has a Load Range C which is 990 lbs at 90 psi. You will want to make sure that this is sufficient for your loaded trailer, and to keep the cold pressure at 90 psi to retain that 990 lbs in keeping with the recommendation by the manufacturer for best tire performance.

If you need and even higher speed rating, you could purchase the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # TT48012C. This tire has a speed rating of 81 mph but it does not come mounted on a wheel. You could choose a 12 inch wheel with your bolt pattern and have it mounted at a local shop when they arrive.
