Recommended 16 Inch Load Range E Wheel/Tire Combination For 5200 Lb Axles


I have a heavy duty trailer with 2x 5200lb axels. they are 6 lug axels. Can you make a reasonable recommendation with a 16inch and a load range of E I think E is what I want?? Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.

The first thing you will want to know is the lug bolt pattern on the hubs you have on your trailer. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to measure your wheel to determine the bolt hole pattern. If your trailer is being used on the road a lot then radial tires can be the best tire because they tend to run cooler than bias-ply tires. All 3 of the 16 inch wheel/tire combos we offer have a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern.

The 16 inch wheel/tire combo I recommend is the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" White Wheel, part # AM32764. This wheel tire combo has a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern and has a rim that measures 16 inches diameter and 6 inches wide. The pilot diameter of this wheel is 4.27 inches.

The easiest way to know what size tire you need is to read the numbers off the sidewall of your current trailer tire. I have attached a couple of articles about wheels and tires you may find helpful.
