I purchased one of these tires for my wheelbarrow last Spring. I live in the land of goatheads, prickly pear cactus, and other thorns; previous tires just didn't last. Very frustrating when you go to get the wheelbarrow and the darn tire is flat! This one has survived the Spring and all Summer without a hitch, flat or one single problem. I would highly recommend this option to anyone with a similar problem! Can you tell which tire I like? 109374

The tire is completely functional -- it is for a utility trailer that suffered a punctured tire last week; I use it to put in my spring mulch in the gardens. I could not find a tire in local stores. Etrailer not only had the tire, but I was impressed with their service: I received an email confirming my order at 11:15 pm on a Tuesday, another confirming shipment at 7am Wednesday, and a third confirming delivery on Friday. I was able to get the tire mounted on Saturday morning and back to being productive in my gardens. Thanks so much for a great experience! 78154

I put about 900 miles on two of the Kenda Loadstar tires over two days on my '67 Cox Cadet camper. I had just had a fairly new 4-ply tire (another brand), blow on me so thought I would step up to the 6-ply. Ihese tracked well & seemed to deal with the summer temps & 70+ mph highway driving well. Also used them for 5 hrs on the winding Blue Ridge Pkwy with no issues. 141586

I purchased two tires because they would replace old ones. One tire was made two years ago and the other was over one year old. They were very hard to inflate because the beads would not seat. Very distorted and narrow in the middle. They look flimsy next to the old ones. I do not suspect I will do business with you all again. 75716

Bought these to replace the tires on my wheelbarrow that always seem to be flat when I needed to use it. Tire fit perfectly. Now no tube to worry about. Tires are much thicker and heavier than what I had. They should last a long time and not be subject to punctures as the originals. 71207

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a Triton Snowmobile Trailer with 18.5x8.5-8 Tubeless Tires
  • We do have trailer tires that will fit your Triton Snowmobile trailer. Check out the Loadstar K399 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM1HP26. This is a tubeless, bias trailer tire that exceeds DOT standards. Its size is 215/60-8 which is the same as 18.5x8.5-8. The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10004, tire that you have referenced is too small for your trailer rims.

  • What is the Highest Rated 4.80-8 Trailer Tire or Tire and Wheel Combo Available
  • For a 4.8-8 trailer tire with the most weight carrying capacity, we have # AM10004. This is a tire by itself and it is rated for 760 pounds at 90 psi. It fits 8 x 3-3/4 inch wheels. The highest rated tire and wheel combo in this size with a 4 on 4 bolt pattern is # AM30040, also at 760 pounds at 90 psi. The highest rated tire and wheel combo with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern is # AM30060 at 760 at 90 psi also. I have included a link to our tire and wheel FAQ articles for you.

  • The 4.80/4.00x8 tire size is exactly the same as a 4.80X8 tire as long as the load range is the same. The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, item # AM10004, is a load range C tire. The 4.00 is added to the tire description so that those who have the older 4.00x8 tires, which are no longer available, will know that this size is compatible with their trailer. I have linked an FAQ on tire sizes.

The 2 P.R., or 2 ply rating, on the current tire indicates that it is a load range A, while the # AM10004 is a load range C, rated at 760 lbs at 90psi. You would need to check the side of the current tire for the actual weight rating on it. Although the # AM10004 would fit your wheel, you would have a stiffer ride on your trailer due to...

  • What Tire Pressure Is Recommended On 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range C Trailer Tire For Highway Speeds
  • The tires should be inflated to 90 psi on the highway as well as other roads, regardless of load size. The problem is that under inflating a trailer tire will lead to degradation of the tire. On trailer tires, the side walls are thicker than on car tires so they can handle more vertical load. An under inflated tire side wall will heat up more often and quicker and will lead to early wear and possible failure of the tire. The best thing to do is to follow the rating on the tires and...

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.

  • Are Tubes Needed For The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range C # AM10004
  • Tubes are not needed in the Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range C, part # AM10004. All of our trailer tires are tubeless tires. You will not want to use a tube in a tubeless tire because that would double the heat buildup inside the tire which will cause the tire to fail. The heat is increased because a tubeless tire is built with a liner on the inside of the tire. When you put a tube inside the tubeless tire, on top of that liner, that will cause the extra heat...

You will need to determine how much space there is available before going to a larger tire. Also going to larger tires will not increase the capacity of the trailer.

  • Do Speed Ratings of Trailer Tires Vary Based on Tire Size
  • Trailer tires are generally rated for a maximum speed of 65 mph. This is true for both radial and bias ply types. The tire diameter does not have a direct relationship to its speed rating. What is most important for any trailer tire is that it be inflated to its specified psi. The load rating for any tire is dependent upon it being inflated to its maximum rated psi. For example, if a tire were rated for a load of 1000 lbs at 90 psi and were inflated to only 80 psi, it would not retain...

The 4.00 is included in the tire description so those who have the older, no longer available 4.00x8 tires will know that this size is compatible with their trailer.

Provided that the tire is not overloaded (one tire is rated at 760 pounds at 90 psi) and it is inflated to the maximum psi rating of 90 pound per square inch, then the tire will last a long time and perform well for you. Trailer tires have thicker sidewalls that allow them to carry a heavier vertical load. If the tire is under inflated, it can cause the sidewall to heat up quicker and more...

  • How Much Air Pressure Should Be in a Trailer Tire
  • You always want to inflate trailer tires to their max tire pressure listed on the side of the tire, otherwise the tire does not have its full weight capacity and can build excessive heat and fail. I would recommend you check the sidewall of your tire to determine what the max psi is and inflate the tire to it. The Kenda Tire # AM10004 that you referenced has a 90 psi rating so that is what it would need to be inflated to, but your tire might be different. I attached an FAQ article...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • What is the PSI Rating for Kenda 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range C Trailer Tire
  • The Kenda trailer tire # AM10004 is rated for 745 pounds at 90 psi. You should always inflate trailer tires to the maximum psi they are rated for. This is because trailer tires are constructed with a thicker side wall to handle more vertical load. If under inflated that thicker side wall will generate excessive heat and cause tire failure.

Trailer tires already have a thicker sidewall than passenger vehicle tires and this adds to the heat they generate. So you do not want to increase the heat by going over 65 miles per hour. I have...

  • Replacement Trailer Tire Recommendation for a 18.5x8.5-8 Tire
  • The 18.5x8.5-8 is actually an old tire size that is not used much anymore. The closest metric size to your existing tire would be 215/60-8, which is what I would recommend. The 4.80-8 tire size that you are interested in is designed to fit 3-3/4 inch wide rims, whereas the 215-60-8 that is close to what you have currently is designed to fit 7 inch wide rims so I do not think a 4.80-8 would install on your rim. Plus the fact that the 4.80-8 has much lower capacity than the 215/60-8 tire...

  • What are the Torque Ratings for the Lug Nuts on a 4.80-8 Trailer Tire and Wheel
  • You likely have 1/2 inch lug nuts on your trailer. For 1/2 inch lug nuts tighten them down to 75 to 85 foot pounds. If you have a different size let me know what it is and I can determine the appropriate torque specifications for you.

  • Does a Spare Tire have to Match the Regular Tires on a Boat Trailer
  • Having a different rating and psi rating on a spare is permissible so long as you do not have to go far to get a new tire and as long as the capacity of that tire is enough for the capacity of the trailer. Ideally, your spare tire should be exactly the same as the regular tires to avoid any compatibility issues. Not only should the spare be the same size, capacity, load range, and have the same psi rating but it should also be the same construction; either bias ply or radial. Tire...

  • Tire Pressure Recommendation for a 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range C Trailer Tire
  • Most likely the recommended tire pressure for the Load Range C 4.80/4.00-8 tire you have is 90 psi. However, you should check the print on the side of the tire as the max pressure should be listed there. It is important to always have trailer tires inflated to their max psi as a trailer tire is only good for its full capacity when it is inflated to its max psi. I attached an FAQ article on trailer tires for you to check out also.

  • 4.00 x 8C Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire Recommendation
  • 4.00 x 8 and 4.80 tires are the same size. For your trailer you would want a Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10004, this should work very well for you since it is the same size tire as what you have now and it is a load range C tire. Its always a good idea to replace trailer tires in pairs on an axle to ensure that you get the same overall tire height for both sides of the trailer. This will keep the trailer as level as possible. There will be tire height variances between tire companies...
