My sailboat beach dolly desperately needed new tires, but I had to gamble at what kind to purchase beyond the size markings I could find on the cheap Chinese treds furnished when I bought the boat 3 years ago. Etrailer seemed to have good prices and clear, easy-to-navigate web pages. I had already purchased some oversize tires from another online retailer and was disappointed with the shipment, and I'm not sure I'll be able to get them on the line to return that purchase. From the looks of the Etrailer web site, I figured I would probably be happier, even if I needed to return them. These new tires were delivered as promised, with great follow-up messages from the team at eTrailer at each point in the order fulfillment process, and they were in perfect condition on delivery. I'm so impressed with the quality of the service and the efforts that each person who contacted me made to deliver the best service that I'm going to tell all my buddies looking for new tires for their trailers. The Wheel Chocks are great--sure, they're plastic, but they are heavy-duty and will last longer than the 4x4 pieces of wood I have used until now. Thanks, Etrailer guys and gals! 62259

I am delighted to find your site, and very satisfied with my purchase. I have bought tires from other sites... tires showed up barely wrapped, in plastic wrap. The tires I received from you were, boxed, carefully packed and arrived within a few days of my order. Your website made a somewhat difficult task simple. My tire selection was an easy step-by-step process and the design of your site made the whole experience quite simple from selection to payment and confirmation. I'll look no further in the future. I'll go right to! Thank you, Paul 79058

This tire was used to replaced a worn-out one on a log splitter. I originally bought replacements from another retailer, but they sent me the wrong load range version of this size. I was happy with the accuracy of this order as well as the tire's performance. Etrailer will be my 'go to' tire place for my next order. 79343

Well I haven't used these tires yet but they have good reviews and are the right size to replace the ancient tires on my 1959 boat trailer.

The trailer tires arrived fast. It was only after I got them I found out that not all shops can mount tires on an 8 inch rim, so you'll have to go to a small equipment shop. They are good tires for the price. I probably would buy the tire & rim combo next time. 42450

Ask the Experts about this Kenda Tires and Wheels
Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheels?

  • Can a Harbor Freight Boat Trailer with 4.80x8 Tires be Switched to 175/80-13 Trailer Tires
  • There are several things to consider when switching to larger tires and wheels on a trailer. First you need to consider the height difference. On a 4.80x8 trailer tire, you are looking at a diameter of about 16 inches. On a 13 inch, like # AM3S040, the diameter is 26 inches. That 8 inch difference means that the top of the tire will be 4 inches higher than your existing tires. You would need to remove the fenders, if equipped, for the tire to fit. You also have to consider width. A 4.80x8...

  • Will a 5.30 x 12 Trailer Tire Fit the Same Rim as a 4.80 x 12 Trailer Tire
  • Yes, a 5.30 x 12 tire will fit the same rim as a 4.80 x 12 tire. Both tire sizes fit on a 4 inch wide rim. There are a couple of things to consider when changing tire sizes. First, the larger 5.30 will be approximately 1.4 inches taller than the 4.80 so you will need to make sure that you have enough clearance above the tire. The 5.30 is also wider by 1/2 an inch so you will need to make sure there is clearance behind the tire as well for the new size. Also, the capacity of the larger...

  • Can Trailer Tires be Downsized from 5.70-8 to 4.80-8 on a Fishing Boat Trailer
  • Both the 4.80/4.00-8 Trailer Tire, like # AM10002 that you selected, and the 5.70-8 Trailer Tire, like # AM10010, are designed to fit on 8 x 3-3/4 inch rims, so the smaller tires will mount on your rims. The problems come with weight capacity. The 4.80-8 trailer tires are only available in load range B and C while your original size tire is available in load range B, C and D. You will need to make sure that the tire you select is capable of carrying the gross weight of your trailer...

  • Will the 5.30 x 12 Tire Size Fit a Small Camper With a 4.80 x 8 Tire
  • The 4.80 x 8 tire size that you have now is 16.1 inches tall and the overall width is 4.6 inches. If you go to the 5.30 x 12 tire size, the overall diameter is 21.9 inches tall and 5.6 inches wide. The first number (4.80 or 5.30) on the tire size designates the width range of your tire in inches. You will want to make sure you will have enough clearance on your camper for the 5.8 inch taller and 1 inch wider tire. I do not list a 5.40 x 12 tire size available. The 4.80 x 8 tire size...

  • Can a 5.7 x 8 Trailer Tire Replace a 4.8 x 8 Tire
  • As long as you have the additional clearance required by the bigger 5.70 x 8 you should have no problem installing this size tire as a replacement for your 4.8 x 8. The 5.7 x 8 will be 1 inch taller and .9 inches wider. If you measure your trailer and find that you have enough clearance for the additional height and width you should have no problems. I attached a link to all 5.70 x 8 tires we offer.

  • What Does the 4.00 Mean on the Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire 4.80/4.00-8
  • On the Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10002, the 4.00 that you see is there so that people who have the older 4.00x8 tires, which are no longer available, will know that this size is compatible with their trailer. So if you are replacing 4.80 x 8 or 4.00 x 8, it will fit.

  • How to Measure a Trailer Tire to Determine the Correct Replacement Tires
  • Your current tire should have some type of code on it that indicates its size. The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10002, is size 4.80/4.00-8. It fits on 8 by 3-3/4 inch rims. It sounds like the 46 and 27 inch measurements you have given are the outer and inner circumferences around the tire, and not the diameter across the tire. The diameter of the Kenda tire is 16.1 inches from the bottom, center of the tire to the top center of the tire. The section width is 4.6 inches. The section...

  • Is a 4-Lug, 4.80-8 inch Tire and Wheel Adequate for Trailering a 400 lb Ariens Garden Tractor
  • It really just depends on the weight capacities of your rim and tire. The tires we sell that are the same size as yours have capacities of 590 lbs and 760 lbs depending on the load range of the tire. One of these tires would be adequate for your setup. You will need to check the weight capacity of your tires and wheels to determine if your setup is adequate. The weight capacity of the tire should be stamped on the sidewall along with the maximum psi recommendation for the tire. You always...

  • How to Determine the Tire Date of Manufacture for a Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 Trailer Tire
  • The DOT number code will be stamped on one side of the tire, near the bead area. This tire identification number will start with the letters DOT, then the next two numbers or letters are the plant code where the tire was manufactured. The last four numbers represent the week and year the tire was built. For example, the numbers 0410 means the fourth week of 2010. I took a photo of the DOT number and date code on a 480-8 tire, part # AM30000, that we have in stock for you, see link. The...

  • Replacement 5.70-8 Tires for a Taylor Dunn B36 Electric Industrial Cart
  • If you just wanted to get the tires and not replace the wheels you can use # AM10013. This is a 5.70-8 tire, load range D, with a capacity of 1,075 pounds at 100 psi. Four of these will have a capacity of 4,300 pounds so they can handle the 3500 pound total of the cart when fully loaded. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. This is because trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall to handle more vertical load. If the tires were on a...

  • What Is Maximum Highway Speed For Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire
  • The maximum speed rating for trailer tires is 65 MPH. The B rating is the load rating for the tire, which is 590 pounds at 65 PSI. You always want to have the tires of your trailer inflated to the maximum PSI rating at all times. If they are not inflated to maximum PSI, the thick sidewalls can heat up and wear faster than normal. I have linked an FAQ on trailer tires that you may find as a good reference.

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range B and C Trailer Tires
  • Load range B trailer tires are going to have a lower capacity than C load range tires. Basically that, psi rating, and the ply rating are the only differences. A higher load range tire would last a little longer than lower load ranges of the same size but it will not increase the capacity of the trailer. If you go with tire # AM10004 it is rated for 745 pounds at 90 psi. And tire # AM10002 is rated for 590 pounds at 60 psi. Both tires will fit 8 inch x 3-3/4 inch wheels. I have included...

  • Availability of a 4.80/4.00 x 12 Trailer Tire and Wheel Combo
  • What you have to remember is that the 1.2 inches taller # AM10002 tire will actually only be 0.6 inches closer to the fender because the extra height is distributed evenly above and below the axle. Take a look at the trailer and see if there is space enough for the extra 0.6 inches (just under 5/8 inches). If so then you can go with a 4.80-12 tire. If there is not space enough then you would either have to go to a smaller tire size (all the way down to an 8 inch) or modify the fender...

  • Can Kenda K371 4.80/4.00-8 Trailer Tire Part # AM10004 Replace 16/5.00-8 Tractor Tire
  • The size difference between the Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 tire and your tractor tire size 16/5.00-8 is quite small so this tire should work fine on your tractor front wheels. We offer two tires in this size, both the Load Range C, # AM10004, rated for a maximum load of 760 lbs at 90 psi; and also a Load Range B tire rated for 590 lbs at 60 psi, part # AM10002.

  • Do 4.80-12 and 5.30-12 Trailer Tires fit the Same Size Rim
  • Yes, the 4.80-12 tire size and the 5.30-12 tire size both fit a 12 inch diameter wheel that is 4 inch wide. So the part # AM30660 with a 4.80-12 tire would have the same rim as the # AM30820. Both these rims have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern.

  • Things to Consider When Changing to a Different Tire Size on a Trailer
  • When considering a different size tire for a trailer there are a couple different things to think about. The first thing to consider is clearance. With a smaller tire you might end up with more clearance in the wheel well, but you might end up with the trailer being too low to the ground. You could potentially drag the rear of the trailer while driving through a valley or going up a hill. Another thing to consider is how the height of the tires will affect the sway of the trailer....

  • The tire size you referenced, 4.80-8, and 4.80/4-8 tire are interchangeable. The width is just slightly different, the width might be 1/2 - 3/4 inch different, but will fit the same size wheels. I have linked a tire size FAQ that shows the different tires sizes and what wheels they will fit. The tire I would recommend would be the Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002. This tire is the correct size and has a towing capacity that would be more than adequate for your trailer. You...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire for a 4x8 Foot Utility Trailer with a Maximum Weight Rating of 1,180 Pounds
  • Your trailer should have a placard or sticker on it that will provide the recommended tire size. If it states 4.80/4.00-8 then I recommend Kenda # AM10002 and its maximum load is 590 pounds at 60 psi. Based on your 4x8 utility trailer that has a maximum weight rating of 1,180 pounds you will be just fine hauling your 800 pound motorcycle. Adding bigger tires won't increase the amount of weight you can carry. The overall capacity of this tire-and-wheel assembly is limited to the lowest...

I explained that you are using the tire in an industrial application and he indicated that as long as the new tire will not be exposed to excessive heat, and is used within its specified inflation/weight rating, that one of their trailer tires should be a suitable replacement.

  • What is the Difference Between 4.80/4.00-8 and 5.70-8 Trailer Tires for a Boat Trailer
  • Both the 4.80/4.00-8 and 5.70-8 tires sizes will fit the same wheel size, 8 x 3-3/4 inch. The 5.70 is taller by 2 inches and wider by 1.2 inches. If you have more than 1 inch of space between the tire and a fender and more than 1.2 inches between the side of the tire and the trailer then you can use the larger size such as # AM10010 rated for 715 pounds at 50 psi. If you do not have the space then stick with the same size you have, 4.80/4.00-8 using # AM10002 rated for 590 pounds at...

  • Which is Better for Highway Use 4.80-12 or 5.30-12 Trailer TIres
  • The 5.30-12 tires, being wider, are going to make more contact with the road. This means that the roll resistance, noise, and heat build up will be higher than a 4.80-12 tire. The wider a tire is the more contact it makes with the road and the more contact with the road the more you are going to feel bumps as you travel. A 4.80-12 tire will be 20.5 inches in diameter whereas a 5.30-12 tire will be 21.9 inches. You would need to make sure that the is more than 3/4 of an inch above the...

  • Does Kenda K371 Load Range B Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 Require an Inner Tube When Mounted
  • The Kenda K371 Load Range B Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 that you referenced does not require an inner tube. It is not recommended to use a tube with a bias-ply trailer tire due to the resulting heat build-up that could cause tire damage. This Kenda trailer tire exceeds DOT specifications, has a maximum load rating of 590-lbs at 60 psi inflation and fits rims that measure 8 x 3-3/4-inches. When fully inflated this tire will have an overall diameter of just over 16-inches. This and all...

I have included a link to the 5.70 x 8 inch tires that we currently have available. Of these the section width of these tires is 5.8 and 5.9 inches, and the overall diameter is. I have included links to a couple of informational articles about trailer tire and sizing for your reference.

  • How to Determine Bolt Pattern for a Trailer Wheel Replacement
  • It sounds like the new 12 inch wheel and tire combo you have is designed to fit a different bolt pattern hub than what your trailer currently has. The bolt pattern of a wheel tells us the number of lugs (or bolt holes) and the diameter of the circle the lugs sit on. For example, a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern lets us know we need a wheel with 5 lugs that are spaced out evenly on a circle that has a 4-1/2" diameter. Most likely your trailer either has a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern or it has...

  • Can 5.30-12 Trailer Tires be Used to Replace ST205/65-10 Tires on a Snowmobile Trailer
  • The more narrow the tire the less contact with the road it will have which means the ride will be smoother. But I would go with the tires the trailer manufacturer recommends for the trailer. It should indicate the proper size on the tongue or frame somewhere. The ST205/65-10 tires, if they are a load range D or E will have a higher capacity than all sizes for a 5.30-12 tire so you would be limited to the lower capacity if you did make the switch. The 5.30-12 will only be about 1.4 inches...

If you're wanting a white powder coated steel wheel with a Load Range B tire, use part # AM3S030 or part # AM3S120 for a load range C tire.
