Review of Kenda Tires and Wheels AM31208HWT


Today we're going to take a look at the Kenda ST145R12 Radial trailer tire in a load range D on a 12 inch HWT Series S5 aluminum wheel with the 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. This is a Kenda Radial Trailer tire. It is a special trailer tire design so it does couple the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. It is created specifically for trailers. It's not intended for use on any other vehicles. They use the double steel belts, full nylon plies combined for a good superior function and long life. Has a nice computer generated tread design and premium rubber compound materials, which will give you superior traction in wet or dry conditions.

The wheel it's mounted on is a HWT Series S5 aluminum wheel. It's very durable and rust proof. If you notice the S5 design is the slit spoke design where they machine finish the face of the wheel and then the accent is silver accents. The front and the back of the wheel are all clear coated for protection. This tire and wheel assembly does need the DOT or the Department of Transportation's specifications. A few specs on this starting with the wheel, the diameter on the wheel is 12 inches which is always measured inside to inside.

The width on the wheel, itself, is 4 inches wide. The bolt pattern on this wheel is a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. If you ever measure that on a wheel that's an even number of lugs, in this case 4, all you have to do is measure one lug hole directly across to the lug hole right across from it. You just measure center to center so if we did it on this one, it would be 4 inches so 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. Weight capacity on just the wheel by itself is 1,220 pounds. Does use a wheel lug size of a 1/2 by 20 and the pilot hole diameter, which is the large hole here in the center of the wheel goes over the hub on your trailer, is 2.8 inches.

The tire itself is a ST145R12 and that's stamped right on here. ST for special trailer. 145R12, the R means it's a radial tire. Section width is 5.7 inches. Overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 21.3.

This tire is a load range D which means it's a 8 ply rated tire so it does have a maximum load capacity of 1,220 pounds at 65 PSI. That should do it for the review on the Kenda ST145R12 Radial trailer tire in a load range D on this 12 inch HWT Series S5 aluminum wheel with the 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern.
