Platinum Plus Warranty with Roadside Assistance

This tire-and-wheel assembly comes with a Platinum Plus warranty that includes complimentary roadside assistance for 2 years. If your trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change out the flat tire with your existing inflated spare tire. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to the roadside assistance, this warranty also includes other benefits and services.


Durable, Corrosion-Resistant PVD Finish Is Environmentally Friendly

Closeup of Silver PVD Finish

The highly corrosion-resistant finish on this steel wheel is applied through a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating process. This process occurs in a vacuum environment so that the aluminum coating binds to the steel at a molecular level. As a result, the coating is harder, more durable, and more wear resistant than chrome plating.


Compared to hexavalent and trivalent chrome plating methods, the PVD process creates a finish that withstands the effects of water, flying debris, and other elements for a longer period of time. The aluminum-coated wheels performed for more than 168 hours in salt spray tests, up to 500 hours in water immersion tests, and up to 40 lbs in impact-resistance tests. They won't pit or peel like chrome-plated wheels, and they resist the effects of any chemicals that may be on the road, such as magnesium chloride or salt during icy or snowy weather.


In addition, the PVD coating process is an eco-friendly alternative to chrome plating, which is extremely toxic to the environment.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

The automotive-rated center disc is raised and the stud holes are beveled and uncoated for better clamp force retention. This technology helps the wheel stay tight against your hub without the need for constant retightening.


Provider Radials with Automotive-Grade Tread

Provider Tread Vs Standard Tread

Unlike standard trailer tire tread, which has solid, continuous ribs, the automotive-grade tread on these Provider radials has ribs with breaks. These breaks allow water to run off to the sides. The Provider tread also has sipes. Siping is a process in which thin grooves (or sipes) are cut into the rubber of the tire. The grooves channel water away from the tread so that the tire makes better contact with the road. Both of these features greatly improve traction during wet, snowy, or icy conditions.


Provider radials are constructed with double polyester cords and double steel belts for increased durability and endurance. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation. Provider radials are bake tested - a process usually reserved for automotive tires - to ensure that the rubber holds up over time.


Radial Tires vs. Bias Tires

Radial tire vs bias tire graphic

Radial ply tires are designed for trailers that are towed on the highway. The cords on a radial tire are positioned at a 90-degree angle to the direction of travel so that they lay across the width of the tire from wheel lip to wheel lip. This construction prevents the cords from rubbing against one another when the tire flexes, unlike the cords on a bias ply tire. As a result, radial tires have less rolling resistance and heat buildup, which leads to a longer tread life and improved steering at higher speeds.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - A16RTK8SMPVD Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Taskmaster provider ST 235 ADR16 radial tire with a 16 inch steel mod wheel. The tire wheel assembly is going to be ideal for boat trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers, and campers. It's going to come with the sturdy steel wheel. It's going to feature a modular design. That's the round holes that go around the wheel, gives it a really nice look. The coating on the wheel is a PVD coating. That stands for physical vapor deposition.

That process creates a sleek, silver finish that is harder and more durable than chrome plating. It's a tough, wear-resistant coating that won't pit or peel. It's going to offer excellent corrosion resistance with a salt spray rating of more than 168 hours, and it's an environmentally friendly technique that's going to bind the coating to the wheel at a molecular level. That coating's going to be on the front and the back. The only area that doesn't have the coating is right here around the lug holes, and that's because the wheel's going to feature ITR technology. That stands for improved torque retention.

That's going to help keep the wheel securely in place on your trailer. The stud holes are beveled to offer better clamp force retention. Now, the radial tire's going to be constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords, offering a long life. It has nylon tread-firming belt overlays to help prevent tread separation. We're going to have tread depth bars. It's going to offer a quick visual indicator of tread wear on our tire.

The assembly meets the Department of Transportation's specifications, and exceeds FMVSS. Few specs to go over with you real quick, starting with the rim. The rim is going to give us a 16 inch diameter with a width of six inches. The bolt patterns are going to be 8 on 6 1/2. It's going to use a wheel lug size of 1/2 inch by 20, or 9/16 inch by 18. The capacity on the wheel is 3,750 pounds.

The pilot hold diameter, that's the diameter of the hole right here in the center of the wheel, that's going to be 5.12 inches. Now, the tire size is ST 235 ADR16. It's going to give us a section width of 9.25 inches, and an outer diameter from top to bottom when fully inflated of 30.79 inches. When it comes to the capacity of our tire, we're looking at load range E, which gives it a 10 ply rating. Maximum load on the tire is going to be 3,520 pounds at 80 PSI. This tire does have a speed rating. If we look right next to the tire size, on either side, that's labeled over here and over here, it's going to say 124120M. That M is our speed rating, and that's going to give us a speed rating of 81 miles per hour. That's going to do it for today's look at the Taskmaster Provider ST 235 ADR 16.

I purchased this wheel as a spare for my new motorcycle trailer, and will now purchase another, and use my originals (with a ton of weight and not true) as a spare. Best price and quality. Was balanced, without a ton of weights and true unlike competitors or the the original wheels that came on my trailer. 639362

Fantastic Trailers and more importantly GREAT customer service. Have used these guys for years and of course most are great with large dollar purchases but not so caring when you just need one small replacement part. My business is in the Virgin Islands and even when I call for one replacement part on an older trailer they are super swift in getting it to me. (note: EVERYTHING including "stainless steel" rusts on an island. These trailers hold up well even next to the ocean everyday) 793211

    As far as capacity goes you could switch out two 3,500 pound axles for one 7K Timbren Axle-less system such as # TASR7KS01. You would have to place the Axle-Less system right in the middle of where the two axles used to be to make sure the trailer load is properly supported. You will also need different hubs, wheels, and tires since everything will need to be rated high enough on just the one axle. The hub and drum assembly that is compatible is # 42866UC3-EZ.
