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

These tires came shortly after I ordered them. I'm getting the 5th wheel ready for our yearly trip out west, and am excited about the "F" load rating of these tires. I'll be able to head west without the worry of will these tires be able to handle the trip. Good looking tire, great tread design... all around well built tire. As always etrailer was prompt with their delivery and all around great service. Thanks! 271997

Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • 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 95 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, # AM10295 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 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 95 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...

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...

  • 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 95 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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 95 psi. The larger size is taller by nearly 3/4 inches.Make sure you have room above the existing tires for the larger size.

  • Can 285/85-16 Trailer Tires be Used in Place of 285/80-16 Tires that Keep Blowing Out
  • First, trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire sidewall. this is because trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall than passenger vehicle tires. If under inflated the thicker tires will generate excessive heat leading to failure. I recommend sticking with the size indicated by the manufacturer, 235/80-16, # TTWTRTM2358016E. This tire is rated for 3,520 pounds at 80 psi. If you were to go up to a 235/85-16 the tire would be 0.7 inches taller...

  • Availability of Load Range F or G Tire in Size 235/80-R16
  • The special travel trailer tires in size 235/80-R16 that we carry will not come in load range F or G. The tire that size that we carry is # AM10248 and is load range E. You may however be able to use a load range F tire like # AM10501. This tire is size 235/85-R16, so it will be a 1/2" taller. You want want to measure to make sure you have the required clearance. If so, you can go with # AM10501. For install details and some product demonstration videos, click the provided links.

  • Tire Choice for 18K-Gross Weight 5th Wheel Toy Hauler that Has Frequent Blowouts
  • The most common causes for a tire blowout on a heavy trailer are incorrect inflation (too low or too high), overloading beyond rated capacity, running them at too high a speed or a problem with the trailer suspension or hubs that causes the tires to run out of proper alignment. This can place more stress on a small portion of the tire and lead to failure. If tires on all axles are failing then this last possibility is unlikely. It is always best to use the same trailer tire all around....

  • 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...

  • How to Correct for Frequent 5th Wheel Trailer Tire Blowouts
  • You are correct that all trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi rating as shown on the tire sidewall. This is important for trailer tires since they can handle their rated weight load only when inflated fully to this maximum psi. Under-inflated tires will run hotter than they should and this will lead to failure. However, all trailer tires, unless they are specifically rated otherwise, will have a maximum speed rating of 65-mph. Few trailer tires are rated for higher...

  • Can 235/80-R16 Be Replaced with 235/85-16 Tires
  • There will be a small height difference between the two sizes you listed (the 235/85-16 will be about half an inch taller), but as long as you have room for the additional height you would be just fine. For a tire in that size I would recommend the # AM10501.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The first I recommend is the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire , part # AM10501. This is a load range F radial tire that has a maximum load capacity of 3,960 lbs at 95 psi. For a load range E tire I recommend part # AM10295. it has a maximum capacity of 3,640 at 95 psi. The Baby Moon wheel...

  • 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.

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.

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.

  • 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...

  • How to Read the Date Code on a Trailer Tire
  • First, the DOT sate code on a tire is 4 numbers. The first 2 are the week and the last 2 are the year. So for example if it was 2314 that means that tire was made in the 23rd week of 2014. There isn't a difference between a tire sitting on the shelf that is 1 year old and the one next to it that is 1-1/2 or 2 years old. Now if one tire is a year old and the other was 6 years old then yes, the older one would have to go. On popular sizes like ST235/85R16 # AM10501 they come in and...

This effect is unavoidable with triple-axle trailers.
