I needed new tries for my 5th wheel trailer that provided a heavier load limit more durable tire than the stock tires that came on the trailer. I selected the Karrier ST 235/85R16 as it met the list of item I was looking for in a tire. Etrailer was great to deal with. Their web site was user friendly and their service was a pleasurable experience. Etrailer made shipment of the tires the same day I placed the order, and I received them in 5 days. I will look at etrailer for future purchases of my trailer needs! 49310

Expert Answers about Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F - AM10501Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheels?


  • What is the Difference Between Load Range E and F Trailer Tires in the Same Size
  • The difference between a load range E and load range F tire of the same size, 235/85-16, is the weight capacity and pressure. The Karrier Radial Tire, Load Range E, # AM10295, has a capacity of 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. The Load Range F Tire, # AM10501, has a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 110 psi. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi rating indicated on the tire. If a tire is under inflated, it will cause the side wall to build up more heat faster and cause the tire...

  • Tire and Wheel Recommendations for a 37 Foot Dual Axle 5th Wheel Trailer with 235/85-16 Tires
  • The Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, # AM20750, uses 1/2 inch -20 bolts AND/OR 9/16 inch -18 bolts. It is rated for 3,750 pounds at 110 psi. The Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, # AM20768, uses just 1/2 inch - 20 bolts. It has a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 110 psi. The rest of the specs are the same for each. Both are 16 x 6 inch wide, have an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern, and a pilot diameter of 4.9 inches. The Dexstar Steel Spoke Trailer Wheel, # AM20750, would be the way to go...

  • Is the Karrier Tire and the Loadstar Tire the Same Brand of Tire or Different
  • The Karrier tire and the Loadstar tire are separate lines of tires that are made by the Kenda tire company. If the same tire size is made in both brands they will interchange with each other as long as the load carrying capacities are the same on both tires. In the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F, part # AM10501, that you have referenced, it is only available in the Karrier line of tires. Kenda has been producing many types of tires since 1962. In the their...

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Tires for a 5th Wheel Trailer with 235/85-16 Tires
  • I recommend using an ST (special trailer) tire, like # AM10501. This is a load range F tire with a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 110 psi for a total capacity for 4 of 15,840 pounds. Another option that is a little less expensive is a load range E tire, # A10295 that you referenced rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. Four of these tires on a tandem axle trailer will provide a total capacity of 14,560 pounds. These are radial tires which will give you the best ride and longest life. Special...

  • Location of Manufacturer and Warranty of Kenda Tires
  • Kenda tires offer a 2 year limited warranty, and are manufactured in Taiwan or mainland China. We have sold Kenda tires for years, and when properly inflated and kept at or below their 65 mph speed rating and when used within their weight rating, they work very well. Always be sure to keep trailer tires inflated to the maximum psi listed on the sidewall. Failure to do so can lead to excess heat build up, which is the biggest enemy of trailer tires. I see that the tire you referenced...

  • What Tires Do I Need for a 31 ft. 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dry Weight of 12400 lbs.
  • The Karrier ST235/85R16 load range E tire, # AM10295, has a max load rating of 3,640 lbs at 95 psi and the Karrier ST235/85R16 load range F tire, # AM10501, has a max load rating of 3,960 lbs at 110 psi.

  • Can 225/75-16 Tires be Replaced with ST235/80-16 Tires on 2001 Carriage Cameo 30R 5th Wheel Trailer
  • A 225/75-16 is not a standard trailer tire size. It may be a light truck or passenger vehicle tire size. Always make sure you are using trailer tires (indicated by an ST in front of the tire size). A 225/75-16 will be 30.184 inches in diameter and 8.865 inches wide. The larger ST235/80-16 is 30.9 inches in diameter and 9.259 inches wide. You would need to make sure that there is enough clearance above and at the back of the existing tires for the larger size. Both tires will fit...

  • Should I Run Maximum PSI Rating on Trailer Tires Even When Carrying Lighter Load
  • Yes, you always want to have the tires on the trailer at maximum PSI rating of that tire, in your case, 95 PSI. Anytime you run a lower PSI, it significantly reduces the load carrying capacity of the tire. If you were to run a lower PSI, the thicker sidewall of trailer tires would cause the tires to heat up quicker and will reduce the life of the tires. I have linked and FAQ on tires that you may find as a good reference.

  • Max Tire Pressure and Load Rating for Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501
  • The weight capacity for the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire, part # AM10501, is 3,960 lbs, and the max tire pressure is 110 psi, which is also the tire pressure recommended to run to maximize performance. You should also note that this is a slightly taller tire than the tires you currently have on your 5th wheel trailer. Your current tire is 30.8 inches tall and this tire is 31.7 inches tall. This added tire height may cause clearance issues, especially if you have fenders with...

  • Can Kenda ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire, Part # AM10501, Replace Light Truck Tires on 5th Wheel
  • The Kenda ST235/85R16 Radial Special Trailer Tire, part # AM10501, will fit your 16 x 6 inch rims. Special Trailer tires (ST type) have a stiffer sidewall than light truck (LT) tires and so will not provide quite as soft a ride. Special Trailer tires also usually carry a speed rating of up to 65 mph maximum. I reviewed a number of different NuWa 5th wheels on their website. The manufacturer specifies both LT and ST type tires depending on the series and model. For example, the 8...

  • What Type and Weight Rating of Trailer Tire to Use on 2012 Crusader 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Based on your quoted Crusader trailer weight of 12,000+ pounds, I suspect you may have the Crusader model 360BHS with the optional 16-inch tires. I reviewed the online specifications for this trailer and there are no specifics offered as to whether light truck (LT) tires can be used in place of the special trailer (ST) type. I spoke to a technical representative at Prime Time Manufacturing but without specific trailer model information they were not able to comment. A tire blowout can...

  • What Can Cause Frequent Trailer Tire Blow Outs
  • A lot of trailer tire blowouts are a result of heat build up that causes the tire to fail. There are several things that can cause too much heat to build up but the main two most likely suspects are overloading the trailer and/or under inflated tires. The trailer axle capacity should be located on a sticker or plate on the frame. Avoid loading the trailer beyond its capacity and use tires with an appropriate weight carrying capacity. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum...

  • Replacement Trailer Tire for a Trailer with 6K Axles and 235/85R16 Tires
  • First lets look at the wobbly tire. If it is indeed a damaged wheel then you will want to replace that as soon as possible. If you notice any odd tread wear like just the inside, just the outside, or flat spots in the middle, that can indicate a problem with the spindle, the hub, or the axle. If the axles have been flipped (turned upside down) then you will notice tire wear on the inside tread. The axles will need to be turned the right way if they are flipped because that greatly diminishes...

  • Are Trailer Tires Better for a Trailer than Light Truck Tires
  • Light truck tires (LT) are sometimes used in RV applications but generally not on utility trailers. Light truck tires are a type of passenger vehicle tire and as such they are not built with as thick of a sidewall as trailer tires. A thicker sidewall allows a trailer tire to handle more vertical load. I recommend going with ST trailer tires. The ST stands for special trailer. A trailer tire can fail for several reasons. Overloading a tire can cause it to fail. You are towing a lot of...

  • What Size Wheel Do I Need For the Kenda Tire # AM10501
  • The tire you selected, Kenda Tire, part # AM10501 is designed to fit a 16 inch by 6-1/2 inch wheel. I have linked all of our 16 inch by 6-1/2 inch wheels that we have available. You will need to measure your bolt pattern to choose the correct wheel for your trailer (see FAQ). You will want a wheel that can hold 3,960 lbs. If you have an existing trailer wheel and are unsure of the size, keep in mind that the height of the wheel is measured from where the bead of the tire meets the...

  • Can 2 Different Load Range Tires of the Same Size be Used at the Same Time on a Trailer
  • Ideally you will want the tires to match in construction, size, and load range. What can happen is reduced tracking quality and one set will wear out at a different rate than the other set. I advise going with all of the same load range. If you had a flat it would be fine to use a different load range, provided it was the proper size, temporarily until you can get a proper matching tire put on.

  • What is the Tread Depth of the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16 in White Wheel

  • What is the Weight Capacity and PSI Rating for the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501
  • The Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501 that you referenced has a 3,960 lb capacity when it is inflated to 110 psi. Trailer tires or ST tires should always be inflated to their maximum psi otherwise the tire loses it carrying capacity. If a tire is under inflated it will reduce the amount of weight that the tire can carry. If a heavier load is put on the trailer tire than what is recommended it will cause the sidewall of the tire to heat up and cause the tire to fail....

  • Trailer Tire Blowout Troubleshooting
  • The Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501 would certainly have enough capacity for your 7000 lb axles since it has a 3,960 lbs when inflated to 110 psi. Special trailer tires should be inflated to their maximum air pressure. At the maximum air pressure, the tires will perform and wear best, and get the best gas mileage. If a trailer tire is inflated to a lower air pressure than the maximum, the amount of weight that the tire can carry will be reduced. If a heavier load is...

  • Frequent Trailer Tire Blowouts and Dry Rot on a Tandem Axle Boat Trailer
  • Tires blowing out is usually caused by either overloading the tires or because of excessive heat generated when the tires are under inflated. But with all of the problems you are having there may be something else going on as well. I recommend having the trailer inspected for suspension wear. Any egg-shaped holes in the suspension components could be the root cause of the problem. If the axles are torsion axles without suspension then this would not be the case. I also recommend...

  • How to Determine if a Torsion Axle Needs to be Replaced and Lifting a Trailer Off the Ground
  • It is certainly possible for any axle to wear out enough over time to need replacing. Since the suspension is built into a torsion axle if the suspension part was to wear out pretty much the only solution would be to replace the axle. If the deflection, or amount of travel of the wheels, on the torsion axle has increased, caused the trailer to bottom out, or is not the same on each side then that would be a good indication that something is wrong. Having the weight off of the tires...

  • Highest Capacity ST235/85-16 Trailer Tire Available
  • The highest rated tire we have for size ST235/85-16 is an F load range, # AM10501. It has a ply rating of 12 and is rated for 3,960 pounds at 110 psi. This is the highest capacity trailer tire that we carry. Kenda does not have a load range G tire in this size. The Kenda/Karrier trailer tires are good tires and can stand toe to toe with any brand of trailer tire out there. They are comparable to other leading tire brands including Load Boss.

  • Load Range G versus F Trailer Tires
  • Load Range F tires actually have a higher capacity than Load Range G tires. We do not offer any tires with a G load rating. The trailer's previous owner may have used Load Range G tires because he did not intend to fully load his trailer and a softer tire provides a smoother ride. Or G tires may have been on sale. I would recommend the Karrier # AM10501 tire. I have included a video review of this tire for you to check out. This is a Load Range F tire rated for 3,960 pounds at 110 psi....

We also offer a load range F-rated tire, part # AM10501 from Kenda. Both tires carry a limited 2-year warranty. If you switch to the higher-rated tire you will likely have lower running temperatures which can help extend tire life.

It will be 30.9 inches tall (diameter) and it will be 9.4 inches wide. An ST235/85-16 will have a capacity of 3,960 pounds for a load range F (we do not carry a G). It will be 31.6 inches tall and also 9.4 inches wide. Both sizes will fit on 6 to 7-1/2 inch wide wheels. I have included a link to all of our...

Based on that you would have a total of 16,320 lbs of tire capacity since you have 4 tires on your setup. That should be enough capacity for you since you have a 15k GVW. The only option we have that would be pretty close to that would be the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501. This has a 3,960 lb capacity...
