Kenda Trailer Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - AM31208 Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Kenda ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire in a load range D on this 12 inch high spec silver aluminum trailer wheel with the four on four inch bolt pattern. Now the tire on this is a nice special trailer tire design. It'll couple the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. And it is created specifically for trailers it's not intended for use on any other vehicles. As tire does use the double steel belts and the full nylon plies, which combined for superior function and long life.The tread on it is a nice computer generated tread design, and they use premium rubber compound materials to give you a superior traction wet or dry conditions.

The wheel that it's mounted on is a nice aluminum wheel, it's durable and rustproof. And this one is the attractive high spec series O four design. It's a five spoke design wheel has a machine face and lip. And then the silver accent in between the spokes. This tire wheel assembly does meet the DOT Department of Transportation specifications.A few specs on this we're going to go over first the wheel, the diameter which is measured inside inside on this is 12 inches.

The width on just the wheel was four inches wide. The bolt pattern on this wheel is a four on four inch bolt pattern. And if you want to measure a bolt pattern like this, which is an even number of lugs, four of them. It's pretty easy because the lug holes are right across from each other. So all you have to do is pick a hole measure from the center of that lug hole, directly across to the center of the hole right across from it.

On this wheel, it'll measure four inches. So it's a four lug, four inch bolt pattern. This does use a wheel lug size of a half inch by 20. Weight capacity on just the wheel is 1,220 pounds.And the pilot hole diameter, it's the large hole here in the center wheel goes over the hub on the trailer. Diameter of that opening is 2.8 inches.

The tire size, which is stamped on the sidewall, ST for special trailer. 145R12, the R means it's a radial tire. Section width on this tire is 5.7 inches. Overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 21.3. The tire capacity, it's a load range D which means it's an eight ply rated tire. So, it has a maximum load capacity of 1,220 pounds at 65 psi.And the last thing I do want to mention is most all the new trailer tires are coming through with a speed rating on them now, and they stamp that on the tire and it's designated by a letter designation and where you find that as you just look around the edge right here, and you'll see the tire size ST 145R12, right after it is a number and a letter. 87 is the number, and then the letter M is the speed rating. So speed rating M will mean this has an 81 mile per hour speed rating. That should do it for the review on this Kenda ST 145R12 Radial Trailer Tire in a load range D on this 12 inch high spec silver aluminum trailer wheel, with the four one four inch bolt pattern.
