Difference Between Galvanized and Aluminum Wheel  


What is the weight difference between a Loadstar 185r80-13“ on a galvanized wheel and the same tire mounted on the aluminum wheel?


Expert Reply:

We have Loadstar 185/80-13 bias tires and wheels, and they are essentially the same weight; the difference is that the galvanized wheel # AM3S334 is steel with an 8-spoke design and is made to resist corrosion. Galvanized wheels are often the type of wheel that people with a boat trailer might use.

The Aluminum Hi-Spec Series S5 Trailer Wheel has a split spoke pattern # AM22323HWT and is clear coated on both sides. This would need to be mounted with the Loadstar ST185/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire # AM1ST79 upon arrival since they are not sold together and pre-mounted.

Each of these setups has a load range D with a wheel capacity of 1,660 lbs and speed rating of 81 mph. I've left video reviews of each tire and wheel for you to take a look at.
