Review of Kenda Tires and Wheels AM30150


Today, we'll be talking about part number: AM30150 - the Kenda 5.7 X 8 Bias Trailer Tire on the Dextar 8" Galvanized Wheel. The steel wheel is galvanized for superior rust resistance. This wheel measures 8" in diameter by 3-3/4" wide. It has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, meaning that it has five lug holes on a 4-1/2" spread. To get this measurement, there are a few ways, we'll go ahead and show you two. The first will be to draw a circle in the center of each of these lug holes and measure the diameter of that circle.

We'll start by measuring from the center of one of the lug holes directly across between the two other adjacent. That will give you 4-1/2". The other way is to measure from the center of a bolt hole directly to the next bolt hole center. And this wheel has a 2-5/8" length. We'll know by using the chart found on the information page that that means we have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

This wheel has a capacity of 910 lbs and a wheel bolt size of 1/2" X 20". One more crucial measurement is the pilot diameter. This is the large hole in the center of the wheel which will go over the hub of the axle. This wheel has a 2.8" pilot diameter. We'll now move on to the tire.

This is a Loadstar 5.7 X 8. It has an outside diameter of 18". This tire's capacity is a load range C, 6-ply rating, which will give it the maximum load of 910 lbs at 75 psi. It is of bias construction, meaning that the belts within the tire will run the length of the tire. This wheel and tire combo comes with a limited two-year warranty.

And that does it for part number: AM30150.

I have a Stinger Single Rail Motorcycle Trailer Sur Lube Grease system. It has LOAD STAR Trailer Tires 5.70 - 8 Load Range C 6 Ply Rating Maximum Load 910lbs @ 75 PSI Cold 5 Lug Steel Wheels The Bike I’m loading on the trailer weighs just under 750 lbs. I’m heading on a trip that’s about 1400 miles. How much air pressure should I have in the tires? _______________ What should the lug nuts be torque to? _______________ What would be the recommended maximum towing speed? _______________ I will probably be towing for about 20 to 21 hrs. Without stopping other than gas. Do you have any recommendations? The Trailer has been stored inside and the bearings have been greased every 1500 miles on average. Wheels are solid with no play and run smooth. Do you sell wheel bearings for the Stinger Trailer? Do you sell trailer axles or spindles for the Stinger Trailer?

@RonL You should inflate your trailer tires to the PSI recommended on the sidewall of the tire. Regarding the lug nut torque, I have attached a link below that has a chart for most wheel and lug nut combinations. Maximum towing speed for your tires will be based on the speed rating letter molded into your tire. For instance Speed Rating "G" is 56 mph. J-62, K-68, L-75, M-81, N-87, P-93. If tires are not marked they are the default is 65 mph. If your trailer has a speed rating it will be labeled on your trailer or in your owners manual. Regarding bearings, grease seals and rings, simply remove the existing ones and let me know the number etched in them, or take measurements. Sounds like you are ready for the road. Have fun!
