Video Transcript for Kenda Tires and Wheels AM1ST84 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number AM1ST84. This is the Kenda Loadstar Bias Trailer Tire with a load range of B. The tire size is ST205/75D14. It's going to offer a flatter tread design so it's going to give you improved stability for excellent handling. This special trailer design couples the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. This is created specifically for trailers, so it's not intended for use on other vehicles. It has advanced rubber compounds, so it's going to offer a longer tread life as well as low rolling resistance for a smoother ride.

This bias tire meets Department of Transportation requirements. You can also see the unique tread design. It's going to perform well whether you're in wet or dry conditions. This does fit a variety of wheel sizes, so we'll go over those real quick. It's going to fit 14-inch by 5-inch, 14-inch by 5 1/2-inch, 14-inch by 6-inch and 14-inch by 6 1/2-inch wheels. It's going to give us a section width from outer wall to outer wall of 7.8 inches and an outer diameter from edge to edge of 26.3 inches when fully inflated. Again, it's going to give us a load range of B with a four-ply rating.

Maximum load is going to be 1,430 pounds at 35 psi and the tire size, ST205/75D14. It's also got all the indicators listed here on the outer wall of the tire. You can always use that as a quick reference guide if you ever need any of that information. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM1ST84. This the Kenda Loadstar Bias Trailer Tire. .

Review from a similar Kenda Loadstar K550 in Tires and Wheels


I own a camp trailer that was manufactured with the above listed tire, yet I was unable to find this same replacement tire at a reasonable price locally. I called every tire dealer that I knew in the local Albany N.Y. area, starting with local camper suppliers. Either they didn't have the tire or were charging what I considered to be an exorbitant amount. Some suppliers suggested I either buy tires with the rims or buy radial tires, of course I would have to buy a match set of two rather than one. As a last resort, I went on line searching for trailer tires and found etrailer.com. I called and Debora H. answered and handled my every question, completed my order and assured me all was right with the world. She promptly gave me an order number and an estimated delivery date. This employee treated me like I was her only customer for the day and I give her much thanks for her assistance. The delivery arrived a full day ahead of her estimated arrival and I had the ability to follow my shipment from their door to mine...how comforting to know their is a company of this caliber! I will continue to support this outfit whenever I can. As soon as I signed for the delivery with the UPS driver, I received an email from Patrick B. to ascertain if all went well with the shipment and if I was satisfied...once again, how can you not like to deal with folks like this? I have not used the trailer on the road, but I assure you, based on the original tires, I see no reason why I wouldn't be happy. I will agree with others that have commented on these tires...Keep the tires inflated to the camper and tire specs and check them regularly to obtain maximum wear. Thank to all at etrailer.com! 86691


Comments

This tire has operated exactly as expected with no maintenance except checking tire pressure before every use. I would buy another set of these tires when or if these wear out! Thanks again Etrailer and those employees associated with my purchase.

Review from a similar Kenda Loadstar K550 in Tires and Wheels


I recently purchased two Loadstar ST185/80D13 Load Range D Bias trailer Tires. This was a difficult item to find looking locally, online, or even calling several manufacturers and distribution centers. These tires are for our family's 10 yr old popup camper which on the last trip had a blow out and needed to have them replaced before our summer trip. I found them on etrailer at a fair price and made the purchase late one evening. By morning I had received two emails notifying me that the product had shipped and that shipping had been upgraded to 3 day with no extra cost. The tires arrived on time at my parents home where the camper was stored and the tires were installed by a local installer that afternoon. Thanks etrailer for making our summer camping trip possible and hope others find your services as beneficial as we did. Happy Trails! 43492

Ordered 2 boat trailer tires, Loadstar ST175/80D13 bias 8 ply load range D, early CST on the morning of 4/09/14. I selected 5-7 day standard ground shipping at no charge. I was notified within an hour by email that the tires had shipped and that shipping was upgraded to 3-5 days at no charge to me. The tires shipped at 9:39 a.m. CST and arrived 2 days later on 4/11/14 at 11:04 a.m. CST. What more could a man ask for! I already have them mounted on my trailer and I am looking forward to seeing how they perform. I ordered the tires from e trailer because I could not find any 8 ply load range D tires locally in the size my trailer/boat called for. The price was very good also. Thank you e trailer for an excellent experience and great service. I will definitely remain a customer. 124747

I cannot give these tires a rating other than good at this point as I have not had them long enough or installed them yet. I will however give e trailer an excellent rating as the tires arrived on time, in fact a day earlier than quoted when the order was placed, and exactly as specified. I had ordered the same tires from a local guy and recieved the tires in load range c instead of d and was told by this dealer that the manufacturer doesn't even produce this tire. I am very pleased with the ordering process as well as the updates and status of the order, the free shipping was also a plus. I will definately consider e trailer the next time I need tires. 60946

The prompt service I received from etrailer.com was fantastic. I called in my order and the gal (Lexus) that helped me was very friendly and efficient. I placed this order on a Friday, the tires were at my door on Tuesday and I had the tires on my camping trailer before dark. I would urge etrailer to keep these tires in their inventory as they are hard to find. I checked with several major tire retailers in my area and they either couln't get them, the lead time was to great or the price was way to high. As for the quality of the tire, I guess time will tell. I will certainly look to etrailer.com the next time I am looking for trailer needs. Thanks again! 54711

After researching tires for several days, watching etrailer videos and reading all the Q&A's, I decided on this particular size and brand because they're excellent in quality and couldn't find any local dealer that carried them. I ordered the tires, steel wheels and baby moon hubs all together to go on a 15' Scotty camper. They look great and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a smaller, yet durable tire. 175760

I am very pleased with the service and ease of ordering, tracking, and follow up, from etrailer. I will know more about the tires soon, as I am planning an 800 mile trip with the trailer these tires are going on. Hard to find load range D tires in this size, as there is only 1 other option that I can find ( the brand I have now ) and I am not pleased with the life, so I was looking for a choice. They arrived very quick, ( a couple of days ),undamaged, and appear to be just as described. Again, the real test for the tire will be soon, but I would definitely buy from etrailer again. 24768

These tires are great. I replaced the car tires that were on my utility trailer when I bought it and the trailer seems to tow much better and can now handle the weight of a load of wood much easier with the stiffer sidewalls. Had them mounted and balanced at a local tire shop which is most likely why the trailer tows better. I would definitely go with these again. 109236

These tires are great for my Fleetwood redwood Popup, actually were original equipment when my popup was new. I looked everywhere, this is the best tire you can get in this size, etrailers price was great when you figured the free shipping, got them within a weeks time. Walmart mounted them and did heavy duty valve stems and kept the old tires for a total of 18.00 Make sure you run these at max pressure to insure even wear, previous owner of my popup ran them low and I had serious wear on the outer edges I run my tires at 65psi 53104

Went on a family vacation and was worried about the tires because we had two flats previously. Bought these online, which were delivered in a few days. We drove from Missouri to South Dakota, from South Dakota to West Yellowstone National Park, Montana, from Montana to Cortez Colorado to Pueblo Colorado and then home. We put approximately 3900 miles on this trip and didn't worry about getting a flat tire, let alone two. If you are looking for great tires and a good price and fast delivery, I highly recommend etrailer.com!!! 143311

Excellent product! These tires came as OE from my trailer manufacturer. I run them on a 26 foot tandem axle, enclosed snowmobile trailer with tortion spring suspension. They have proved to be an exceptional tire. Now after 8 years and 10's of thousands of miles of traveling in the worst weather that Northern Maine has to offer without any issues (flats, loss of control, etc) I am replacing them with the exact same tire. The orignal tires still have excellent tread depth and even wear just feel like it is time. 4782

I have never ordered tires online or for a trailer before this experience. They had exactly the tire that I wanted in the correct size that I wanted. That made it very simple to just call them up and order. We received the tires in 3 business days. We have not taken a trip on these tires yet but I expect them to be just fine when we do. If you are looking to replace original tires for your camping trailer, this is the place to look first. I will return here for future trailer needs. 136606

Just received an email from Katherine at etrailer stating that UPS delivered my package and it was on the front porch. Sure enough, there it was and I couldn't be more pleased. Haven't had an opportunity to install the tires or brake controller but etrailer directed me to a page that has great information about both products. Nice job folks and I will definitely purchase from you again. I paid with PayPal and it couldn't have been easier. Thanks again, Jim M. 6898

These tires look really great. I hope their performance is as good as they look. I was unable to get tires locally with a heavier (D) load rating in the 13 inch size for my boat trailer having a single axle and a boat weighing 3800 Lbs. I have had two tire failure over the past 7 years when using the C load range tires that originally came with the trailer. I hope this ends my tire failure problems. At least I'll have greater piece of mind on the highway. 50930

I've been trying to find a good trailer tire for my coleman popup for a few years now locally, to no avail. at one of our local tire shops, the meathead/owner behind the counter sold me a set of garbage tires that wore out in a year, so I'm anxious to get more miles on these loadstars. it has handled much better since leaving the driveway, plus the load rating is higher. based on what I've seen so far, these will be my tire of choice from now on. 85461

It's very hard to find a small 13 or 14 inch trailer tire in an 8 ply rating. I have a HD single axle trailer that is made to haul two atvs. We do a lot of back country travel with the trailer loaded and these 8 ply tires wear well and give you and extra margin of safety-- most people under tire their trailers. Etrailer was one of the few places that had these tires; took about a week to get them with their free shipping. So far so good. PWO 41978

We ordered these in July, to replace a pair of Duro brand tires. The tires have felt very good while driving and have worn really well so far (3,000+ miles since install). With our pop-up being over 3,000 lbs, they were really one of the few options for our single-axle trailer to keep us in the safe-load zone. Very well done Loadstar. And a tip of the hat to etrailer.com for making the purchase and shipping easy! 24745

Review from a similar Kenda Loadstar K550 in Tires and Wheels


Same as the tires originally equipped on my boat trailer. I did not have any issues with those, I'm assuming I will not have any issues with these. Finding other tires with the same load rating was difficult so I cannot compare other brand's cost to these. 145786

  • What Size Metric Trailer Tires Will Fit In Place of Size F78-14 Tires
  • For your older trailer tires, you can use size 205/75-14 as replacements. We have three tires in this size. The first is a radial tire, # AM10234. Since it is a radial tire, it is more durable and will provide a better ride. It is rated for 1,760 pounds at 50 psi. We also have two bias trailer tires. First is # AM1ST86. This is a load range C tire good for 1,760 pounds at 50 psi per tire. The other is a load range B bias trailer tire # AM1ST84. It has a capacity of 1,430 pounds at 35...

  • What is the Metric Equivalent to a G78-14 Alpha Numeric Boat Trailer Tire
  • According to our resident tire expert, the metric equivalent of a G78-14 Alpha Numeric tire is a 205/75-14 tire like the Loadstar ST205/75D14 Bias Trailer Tire - Load Range B, # AM1ST84, that you have referenced. The Hopkins tire pressure monitoring system, part # HM30100VA, would be a great addition to your setup. This wireless monitor tracks the pressure on all your tires and displays them constantly. Keeping up with your tire pressure is one of the best ways to improve your fuel...

  • TrailerTire Load Range And Maximum Load Rating Explanation for a 2006 Skyline Aljo Trailer
  • On special trailer tires and light truck tires the Load Range B means it is a 4 ply rated tire with a maximum load of 1,430 lbs. at 35 p.s.i. A Load Range C means a 6 ply rated tire with a maximum load of 1,760 lbs. at 50 p.s.i. On the Loadstar ST205/75D14 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM1ST84, it is a Load Range B tire. That maximum load rating is per tire, so two tires on the same axle would hold 2,860 lbs. at 35 p.s.i. They also have a Loadstar ST205/75D14 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM1ST86,...

  • Increasing Trailer Wheel and Tire Size on a 2003 Pace 6 X 12 Foot Trailer
  • Your ST205/75d14 Trailer tire is approximately 26.3 inches tall and 7.8 inches wide overall by my calculations (see Measuring a trailer tire link). The Karrier ST225/75R15, item # AM32459, is 28.4 inches tall and 8.9 inches wide overall. If you decide to change to the larger wheel and tire you will need to be sure you get the proper lug pattern (see link for determining wheel bolt pattern) and that the larger size of the tire will not rub the fender on the inside, outside or the top of...

  • Trailer Tire And Recommendation For 8x8 Foot Trailer Carrying 2 800cc ATVs
  • After some research, I have found that based on the weight of the 2 ATVs and your trailer, a tire with a load range of C (a 6 ply rated tire with a maximum load of 1760 lbs at 50 psi) is a compatible fit for your trailer. The size you referenced 18.5/8.5-8 is an older style of tire sizing. The newer version of that is 215/60-8. If you have trailer built for a 4-bolt wheel, I recommend the Kenda Tire and Wheel # AM3H290. If it is a 5-bolt wheel, I recommend the # AM3H310. Both have...

  • Which Tires are Equivalent to F79-14ST Size Tires on a SeaRay Boat Trailer from Zieman
  • The 205/75-14 size tires, like the ones you were looking, will fit wheels with F78-14ST size tires. Make sure you choose a tire with a load rating that is sufficient for the loaded weight of the boat and trailer.

  • Availability of Replacement Tire For Size F65-14ST on Tow Master Boat Trailer
  • The replacement for the F65-14ST tire you mentioned would be a ST205/65-14, which is kind of an oddball size that we don't carry. The closest equivalent we carry would be 205/75-14. The tire you currently have is 24.6 inches in diameter, and 7.4 inch section width. The ST205/75-14 is 26.3 inches in diameter and 7.8 inches wide which is about a 1/2 inch wider and 1.7 inches larger in diameter. We have the 205/75-14 available in a bias-ply or a radial tire. The radial is available...

  • Replacement Trailer Tires for Size F78-14 Tires on a Boat Trailer
  • F78-14 is an old size designation and equates to a 205/75-14 tire size so you will want to look at tires in this size. I have included a link to them for you. Since you will be towing approximately 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight and have 4 tires total on the 2 axles, you could go with a Load Range B tire, # AM1ST84, which is rated for 1,430 pounds at 35 psi. Four of these tires will have more than enough capacity to support the combined trailer and boat weight. I have included...

  • Tire Sidewalls are Cracking on Kenda ST205/75D14 Bias Trailer Tires # AM1ST84
  • I actually have this same problem, though it is occurring on my car and not a trailer. I spoke to our resident tire expert and he stated that this happens from the UV rays in the sun. It is not an immediate concern unless your tires are losing air pressure. If this happens they will need to be replaced. If the tires do need to be replaced at some point, I also recommend cleaning out the wheels where the tires normally cover them. Gunk can build up in there and also cause tire pressure...

  • What are the Correct Size Tires for the Dexstar Vintage Steel Trailer Wheels in 14 inch
  • The Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel is a 5-1/2 inch wide wheel and will accept 14 inch bias ply trailer tires, in ST205/75D14 and ST215/75D14. In the ST205/75D14 tire size there are two load range tires available bias ply, # AM1ST84, load range B and, # AM1ST86, load range C. In the ST215/75D14 tire size there is one load range C tire available in bias ply, # AM1ST90. I provided a link to our Trailer Tire Sizing chart for you to review also. In the Chart you can compare all of the...

  • Determining Correct Trailer Tire Load Range for Single Motorcycle Trailer
  • Your Sonic has a maximum tow rating of 2000 pounds. I checked the Chariot website and reviewed weight capacity for a single-motorcycle trailer, and the CS-9 model has a body load rating of 1575 lbs. All hitch receivers offered for your vehicle are rated at 2000 pounds. So in this case the overall towing weight limit is the lowest of the three, the 1575 pound trailer rating. You will still want to check the rating for your particular trailer. Given this, moving to Load Range C tires...

  • Differences Between ST205/75D14 and ST205/75R14 Trailer Tires
  • The differences between D and R is D is going to be a bias ply tire and R is radial. You will certainly want to keep all of the tires the same type of construction and load range. Mixing construction types will lead to tire wear and traction issues. Since you have bias ply tires now, go with the # AM1ST86 unless you plan on changing all 4 tires I would recommend the Karrier # AM10235. There isn't any difference in the size of the tire. With that being said, if you are replacing one bias...

  • Replacement Trailer Tire for a F78-14 Tire
  • The correct metric size for the F78-14 tire size is an ST205/75-14 tire size. The part # AM1ST84 that you referenced will work as a replacement, but since this is a bias ply tire the part # AM10234 would be a better choice for you. The prices are available below at the links. The main difference between a radial ply and a bias ply tire is how the tire is constructed. The cords inside a bias ply tire run at a 32 degree angle to the direction of travel, and the cords on a radial tire run...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a Trailer with 185/70R14 Tires
  • The tire size you listed isn't a common trailer tire size, it's most likely a passenger vehicle tire. On a trailer you should only use ST specialty trailer rated tires since they are designed for the vertical load associated with trailer. The closest trailer tire size to what you have is the 205/75-14 like the part # AM1ST84. This size will be about 2 inches taller than what you currently have so you will need to make sure you have room for 1 inch less of fender clearance. I attached...

  • When to Replace a Trailer Tire Based on Date of Manufacture
  • Trailer tires that are not yet installed and that are kept in a controlled environment will not suffer significant deterioration after only a few months. In a typical retail environment tire inventory will cycle through every 3 to 9 months. Tire compounds are formulated to withstand the heat that is generated in use. They will actually deteriorate less when driven than when left unmounted. This is true even if they are kept in a controlled environment. However, if a tire was manufactured...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation to Replace F79-14ST
  • The 205/75-14 size tires, like the Loadstar Tire part # AM1ST84, will fit wheels with F78-14ST size tires. Make sure you choose a tire with a load rating that is sufficient for the loaded weight of the boat and trailer. These tires are rated for 1,430 lbs when inflated to 35 psi. I attached an FAQ on trailer tires for you to check out also.
