Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - TA59VR Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. So they would take a look at this Provider S T 2 35 80 R 16 radial trailer tire in a load range E mounted on the 16 inch silver modular steel wheel with the six on five and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this is a tire and wheel assembly. It's ideal for stock trailers, utility trailers, and campers. Does use a steel wheel with the modular design. When we say modular design, that's the one that has the round holes all the way around the wheel.

This wheel is very sturdy and rust resistant, and what's nice is this wheel goes through a three-step finishing process, which will include first: a zinc phosphate bath, then an E-coat primer, and then a nice silver powder coat on the outside of the wheel. And you can see if we turn it to the back of the wheel, they do on the inside a lightly E-coating to reduce friction, provide rust resistance. This wheel does use the ITR technology, which stands for improved torque retention. It's designed to help keep your wheel securely in place on your your trailer and just want to zoom in and show you the way they do that is, you can look at these stud holes here and they're uncoated stud holes, and they're also beveled to offer better clamp force retention. Now the tire on this wheel is a radial tire.

It is constructed with double steel belts, double polyester cords for a nice long life. It's great for highway use and they do use a nylon tread firming belt overlay around the tire to help prevent tread separation. And this tire is bake tested to ensure that the rubber will hold up over time. It is an ST tire, which means special trailer tire design, couples the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. And this tire is created specifically for trailers not intended for use on any other vehicles.

This assembly does come with a two-year platinum plus warranty, which includes emergency tire change service and other benefits. And the assembly does meet the DLT, which is Department of Transportation specifications, and will exceed your federal motor vehicle safety standards. A few specs on this starting with the wheel, the diameter of the wheel is 16 inches. The width on just the wheel is six inches wide, bolt pattern on this wheel is a six on five and a half inch bolt pattern. And if you want to measure that bolt pattern, it's pretty easy on a wheel.

That's an even number of lugs like in this case six and at this because the lug holes are directly across from each other. So when you pick whatever hole you want, you just measure from the center of that hole directly across to the center of your hole right across from it. So on this wheel, it'll measure five and a half inches. So this is a six lug five and a half inch bolt pattern. This does use the wheel lug size of a half inch by 20 or nine 16 by 18. Weight capacity on just the wheel by itself is 3,500 pounds. Pilot hole diameter, the large hole here in the center of the wheel goes over the hub on your trailer that diameter is 4.25 inches. And the tire size, Tire size will be stamped on the sidewall S T 2 35 80 R 16, the R means that's its a radial tire. Section width, 9.3 inches, overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 30.8 and this tire is a load range E which means it's a 10 ply rated tire has a maximum load capacity of 3,520 pounds at 80 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 the speed rating is usually stamped on the sidewall by a letter designation. And where are you usually find that is right after the size. So here's the size that we went over. You'll see two numbers for the load index. And then the letter M, speed rating M will mean this has an 81 mile per hour speed rating, but that should do it for the review on the Provider S T 2 35 80 R 16 radial trailer tire in a load range E mounted on this 16 inch silver modular steel wheel with the six on five and a half inch bolt pattern..
