Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - TA49VR Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Provider ST 235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire in a load range E, mounted on this 16 inch white modular steel wheel with the 8 on 6 and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this tire and wheel assembly is ideal for stock trailers, utility trailers, and even campers. The wheel they use on this as a nice steel wheel has the modular design. And when I say the modular design, what that design has is the one that has the round holes all the way around the wheel. This wheel is sturdy and rust resistant.

It does go through a 3-step finishing process, which will first include a zinc phosphate bath, an e-coat primer, and then a nice white powder coat on the outside of the wheel. And you can see if I turn it around to the backside or the inside, it is lightly e-coated to reduce friction and provide rust resistance. Now, this wheel does use the ITR technology, which stands for Improved Torque Retention. It is designed to help keep your wheel securely in place on your trailer. And I want to zoom in and show you the way they do that is your stud holes right here that go all the way around.

They are uncoated, and then they are also beveled to give you a better clamp force retention. When you're tightening your lug nuts down to the trailer, to hold your wheel in place. Now the tire that's on this is a Radial Tire. It is constructed with double steel belts, double polyester cords for nice, long life. It is great for highway use and they do also use a nice nylon tread firming belt overlay to help prevent tread separation.

And the tire itself is bake tested to ensure that the rubber holds up over time. This tire does use, is a ST tire design, which stands for 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 other vehicles. This tire wheel assembly does come with a 2-year platinum plus warranty, which will include an emergency tire change service and other benefits.

And the assembly does meet the DOT, Department of Transportation specifications, and it will exceed your Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Few specs, a few specs on this. We'll start with the wheel. The diameter on the wheel is 16 inches. The width on just the wheel is 6 inches wide. This wheel does have a bolt pattern of 8 on 6 and a half inches. And if you want to measure that on a wheel, that's an even number of lugs. In this case of 8 lugs, it's pretty simple because the lug holes are directly across from each other. So it makes it easy to measure. So when you go to measure, just pick any lug hole, let's say this one and measure from the center of this lug hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. So on this one, it'll measure 6 and a half inches. So it's an 8 lug 6 and a half inch bolt pattern. The wheel does use a wheel lug size of a half inch by 20 or 9/16 by 18, and the weight capacity or wheel, or the weight capacity on this wheel, is there just the wheel only is 3,750 pounds. And the pilot hole diameter, which is the large hole here in the center of the wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of this opening is 5.12 inches. Now the tire size itself is stamped on the tire, right here, ST for Special Trailer, 235/80R16, the R stands for radial tire. Section width on this is 9.3 inches, overall diameter from the bottom to the very top when it's inflated is 30.8 inches. And this tire is a load range E which means it's a 10 ply rated tire. So it has a maximum load capacity of 3,520 pounds at 80 PSI. And the last thing I do want to show you, most all the new trailer tires are coming through with a speed rating on them now. And the speed rating is designated by a letter designation and where that is on the tire, Excuse me, right after the tire size, you'll see the 2 numbers for the load index. And then the letter M, speed rating M will mean it has an 81 mile per hour speed rating. But that should do it for the review on the Provider ST 235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire in a load range E, mounted on this 16 inch white modular steel wheel with the 8 on 6 and a half inch bolt pattern..
