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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can an ST235/80/16 Load Range F Trailer Tire be Safely Used on a 15k 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There seems to be a mix up somewhere. Trailer tire # AM10501 that you have referenced is size 235/85-16, not 235/80. We have 2 tires in size 235/85-16. First, # AM10501, is a load range F and is rated for 3,960 pounds at 110 psi. Then we have # AM10295, load range E, rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. So the load range F tire is rated higher. For tire size 235/80-16 we have 1 tire, # AM10248, rated for 3,197 pounds at 90 psi. As far as if any of the above tires can be used on a 14,800...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What Rim Widths Will the Karrier ST235/85R16 Tire Fit On
  • Yes, this Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501 will work on your 16 inch by 7 inch trailer wheel. This tire size is good for the following wheel widths, 6, 6-1/2, 7, 7-1/2 inch. I attached an FAQ article on tire sizes for you to check out also.

  • 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 is the Overall Height of an ST235/85R16 Trailer Tire Load Range E and F
  • First, the LT that is in front of your existing tires indicates you are using light truck tires. These tires are not designed for trailer use. ST or special trailer in front of the size indicates a trailer tire. Trailer tires are designed with a thicker side wall to handle more vertical load than passenger vehicle tires. In the 235/85-16 tire size, we only have the load range E tire # AM10295, and load range F, # AM10501. The load range F tire is going to have the higher capacity of...

  • Can ST235/80/R16 Trailer Tires be Replaced with ST235/85/R16 Trailer Tires
  • ST235/80-16 and ST235/85-16 trailer tires will fit on the same size wheels. Both will fit on 6, 6-1/2, 7, and 7-1/2 inch wide trailer wheels. We carry 2 tires in size ST235/85-16. They are both radial tires. Tire # AM10295 is a load range E rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. Trailer tire # AM10501 is a load range F rated for 3,960 pounds at 110 psi. The larger size is taller by nearly 3/4 inches.Make sure you have room above the existing tires for the larger size.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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. We also have the Karrier ST235/80R16 load range E tire, # AM10248, which has a max load rating of 3,500 lbs at 90 psi. For your trailer with a max weight rating of somewhere above the 12,400 lb load you mentioned, you could use any of the tires mentioned above. With the load range...

  • Load Range F Tires Compared to Load Range E Tires for a Dual Axle Dump Trailer

The load range F tires are definitely constructed to handle more weight, but whether or not they will last longer than an E would really depend on the situations in which they are being used and the actual trailer weight. We do not offer any tires with a G load rating. If you are finding that...

  • 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...

  • Is the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire a Dependable Trailer Tire
  • Most tires, whether they are passenger vehicle tires or trailer tires, will stand up to the test of time provided they are properly maintained. The tires we carry are the same. Trailer tires must be inflated to the maximum psi as indicated on the tire sidewall. This is because trailer tires are constructed with a thicker sidewall. Because of the thicker sidewall they can generate more heat and if under inflated they will generate excess heat and cause the tire to fail prematurely. This...

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...

  • If you have a tandem axle trailer then the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501 that you referenced should work since it has a capacity of 3,960 lbs at 110 psi. If you multiply 3,960 by 4 you get 15,840 lbs which would be more than you would need. You will want to make sure you are not exceeding the axle capacities of your trailer too. There should be a plaque or sticker near the coupler of the trailer that will indicate the overall capacity of the trailer. You will want...

  • Trailer Tires for a 2012 Heartland Bighorn 3610 5th Wheel Trailer with ST235/80-16 Tires
  • Usually when a trailer or RV is blowing tires it is because they are not properly inflated. You mentioned inflating the tires to 80 psi. If that is the maximum pressure indicated on the tires then that is not likely the issue. If the tires require a higher or lower pressure make sure to reach that figure. It is possible that the tire size used on the trailer is either barely enough for the weight of the trailer or not enough. The sudden shock of a bump could cause a failure in that situation. Going...

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.

The BMW wheels will not work on the Chevrolet Equinox. I would recommend to check on the wheel itself, sometimes on a steel wheel it could have the maximum load listed on the wheel. On an alloy wheel it is in the casting on the back of the wheel. If the maximum load is not on the wheel you will need to check your owners manual or with the Chevrolet...

Your current 235/85/16 tires have an LT stamping, which indicates that it is a light truck tire. The ST on the Kenda # AM10501 indicates that it is a Special Trailer tire. One thing you will want to check on your existing tires is the load capacity. The Kenda tire is has a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 110 PSI. You should always inflate trailer tires to...

  • 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....

  • 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.
