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"

Review from a similar Contender White Spoke in Trailer 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.

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

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • How to Select Special Trailer Tires and Wheels for Trailer with 7K Axle
    All of the components that will be installed on a 7K axle should be rated appropriately for that axle capacity. This means the trailer hubs, wheels and tires all should be rated to match the axle capacity. When any one component is rated below the others, then that lowest-rated item (being the weakest link, so to speak) determines the overall capacity of the entire set-up. Trailer rims/wheels also need to be selected based on the hubs' bolt pattern. We offer trailer wheels in 10 different...

  • What Axle Does Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR758D Fit
    If your trailer has 7k rated Lippert Axles the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR758D will fit and work well. Then a 16 inch trailer wheel and tire like the Contender ST235/80R16 part # AC16R8WSQ could fit as it has the correct 8 lug bolt pattern. We won't be able to quote you on labor but I did attach a couple help articles below that cover adding disc brakes to a trailer.

  • 235/80-16 Tire and Wheel Recommendation with White Rim with 8 Lug Bolt Pattern
    We have that tire size on a white wheel with the right bolt pattern but the highest load range we offer for that size is E and not G. The part # AC16R8WSQ matches what you need but is Load Range E which means it has a capacity of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi.
