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.


Beveled Stud Holes

The stud holes on this steel wheel are beveled to ensure that the wheel stays tight against your trailer hub. This also eliminates the need to constantly retorque the lug nuts.


Standard Trailer Tire Tread

Contender Tire Tread

The standard tread on these tires has solid, continuous ribs, and it has very few sipes (or thin grooves) cut into the rubber. These tires are designed for use on trailers, so they don't require the level of traction that would be needed on a vehicle that is braking or steering.


Contender radials have double polyester cords and double steel belts. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation.


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"

Installed these on a 1996 Jayco 30' Travel Trailer. The tires look great and perform well. It originally cam with Steel Belt Radials but I change to Bias. They did not perform well and only kept on for a short time before going back to these. They ride well and wouldn't know the trailer is behind. Well pleased!! 439009

Tires & wheels arrived quickly and exactly as described. Wonderful service and will use again when I replace tires & wheels on my boat trailer. Only issue I had was that the powder coated white paint popped off around one of the lug nuts and I tightened it down. 695820

Ordered and received my tire from etrailer. They ship pretty darn fast. Great price too. Even though I only needed it for a spare tire to mount on a heavy equipment trailer it was worth ordering from these guys... saved me some money here instead of going to local places in my town that were over priced!! 503855

Beware, these tires are not balanced. I had to pay another $15 to get it balanced. Bad assumption on my part - buyer be ware. Had I known that I would have gone a different route. I have not used it yet so I can't comment on actual product. 554887


Comments

Taskmaster does not balance the tires they sell. This being said, because a trailer has no steer or drive axles having balanced wheels/tires isnt crucial for a trailer tire as it is for a wheel/tire on a passenger vehicle.

Best price that I could find anywhere for a C Load rated tire with a rim. I was dreading buying tires for the trailer, but etrailer made it simple!! There is not much that can be said about a tire and a standard trailer rim... it is very... ummmm.... round? Fit great and will last me a long time!! etrailer is a great company to do business with and I am looking forward to future purchases! 273029

I received my 2 tires and wheels for my utility trailer and they were exactly what I wanted and ordered. I put them on and they fit perfectly and look really nice. The whole ordering experience was great and the wheels came in nice boxes that protected them from shipping and handling. Thanks eTrailer. I will recommend you to all my friends that are looking for a great price on trailer tires. 523138

The wheels and tires are working fine and still look new! I used the trailer during hunting season and all went well.

Easiest set of trailer tires and rims I ever purchased for replacement of tires due to age. Delivery was on to my front porch as promised and they fit. Hard to find 5 1/2" bolt pattern fit my old trailer perfect. Best part is I did not even need to move the trailer. I had budgeted hundreds $ more to get the job done but when I saw they were on sale I could not pass them up. Saved about 200-300$ using mail order and the bonus of free shipping. No waiting for local tire shop to find the rims I need and did not need to drag the trailer to a tire store. 364933

I don't usually write reviews but etrailer did such a great job pricing and delivering my tires that I feel obligated to share the news. I had been pricing my trailer tires 205 75//15 and found the best price by about $ 10-15 per tire at etrailer. Shipping was free and my four tires/wheels were delivered in individual boxes within less than a week. I even found an $ 18 coupon on-line and was able to apply it to my order ( saved another $4.50 per tire). Great Job. Thanks, Tom 404809

Review from a similar Taskmaster Contender White Spoke in Tires and Wheels


This is the third or fourth set of wheels/tires I have purchased from etrailer.com along with other items. They are so great to deal with. I ordered these late Thursday and they arrived noon on Monday - wow ! etrailer is straight forward. They told me the wheel/tire assemblies are roughly balanced. They place the heavy tire spot opposite the heavy wheel spot. So if you want a perfectly balanced set you should go to your nearest tire shop. Worth the effort since the etrailer prices are so good. The tire shop said they were only slightly out of balance. I went up a size from R14 to R15 and fatter profile 215 to 225. added almost 700 pounds of extra safety margin, meaning the tires are lightly loaded. obvious to the eye. Thanks etrailer. I do not like operating tires near capacity! Follow the standard recommendation: Change your trailer tires at 12,000 miles even though they look new. 564538


Comments

Because trailer tires dont have a steer or drive axle, its nowhere near as crucial for a trailer tire to be perfectly balanced as it would be for a passenger vehicle tire. Regardless of the milage theyve seen, its a good idea to consider replacing trailer tires around the 5 year mark as continued exposure to UV radiation from sunlight is harmful to the compounds used in the manufacture of tires.

Review from a similar Taskmaster Contender White Spoke in Tires and Wheels


It is hard to give an accurate review of this product until it has been put to use for awhile. However, initial appearance seems good. I was a little disappointed in two areas of detail. 1) Most tire companies use a round paint mark to identify weight disparity due to manufacturing process and help locate the tire on the rim with the stem. Since these tires are sent unbalanced, taking this easy step while mounting would be good. 2) Tires are 6 ply rated for 50 psi max at cold. One tire came with 32 lbs and the other came with 72 lbs. The second was a somewhat dangerous situation during shipping. This amount of pressure over time also creates stretching of the tire resulting in a change in size and degradation of the tire. Very sloppy workmanship on the mounting and prep work. 484643

Review from a similar Taskmaster Contender White Spoke in Tires and Wheels


Tires were received a day earlier than originally predicted. Tires were exactly as ordered and in good condition. Boxes could be a little more sturdy on the hand holes as they were all torn out (which makes it difficult for UPS handling). 575833

First of all, the package was delivered on time and intact with all that I had ordered. The tire and mounting bracket are very well priced and the quality seems to very good. I mounted it on my ATV trailer and the install was very easy and a quality mount, the tire is of the same, if not better that what came with the trailer. I am very happy with the tire and mounting bracket and would recommend these products to anyone interested in buying form Etrailer. Thank you 309699

Review from a similar Taskmaster Contender White Spoke in Tires and Wheels


I was impressed with these wheels and tires as soon as I saw them and bolted them on. My original wheels were getting kind of rusty and the tires were the original Load range C that were borderline of carrying the full load of a 27' travel trailer with all our camping gear. These are Load Range D and rated to carry much more weight and are rated for higher speeds, so I shouldn't have to worry so much when we are traveling down the highway. I also liked the idea that the center hole matched my originals so close that my original hub caps fit right in and looked factory stock. Overall they have enhanced the look of our RV.

Tire and rim were as advertised and delivered promptly to my door. I replaced a 14 year-old tire on my trailer that was showing dry rot with this brand new one and I never had to leave my house. The old tire was replaced at a local tire center and the old rim and new tire then became my brand new spare tire. Went on a 500 mile trip with my trailer and it rode nicely and I didn't have to worry about tire failure on my trip. 651511
