Bias Tires vs. Radial Tires

Bias vs. radial tire graphic

Bias ply tires are designed for off-road or agricultural applications. They are built with thick, durable nylon cords that are positioned at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the direction of travel. The layers alternate in a crisscross pattern, making the sidewalls stiffer so that the entire tire is able to flex easily. As a result, the tire provides a smooth ride and improved handling when trailering on uneven surfaces.

I ordered a small tire for a utility trailer that was difficult to find throughout the internet however etrailer had the product I needed and it is a great quality so far. I am impressed with how quickly it came and how reasonable the prices were as well great job! I will definitely refer you to friends and others who are looking for trailer product. 791319

My wheelbarrow got a flat...again. So I tried a different route. It's a trailer tire but I noticed it is 8in, the same as my wheelbarrow. This is a much more robust tire than the ribbed [tire] that typically lives there. I think the load rating is like 750lbs, way more than I will ever put in there. Anyway if you want to put a truly heavy duty tire on you wheelbarrow, this is it. etrailer had the best price and it got here fast. 772552

Comments
James, Thank you for your review. Bias trailer tires are shipped somewhat misshapen and are almost impossible to mount by hand. You would want to take it to a shop and let them use a bead blaster like machine to mount the tire on your wheel. I hope this helps.

I did not put this tire on a trailer, but a wheelbarrow. It holds air very well, unlike the tire that was on my wheelbarrow. I don't think I have added air since I mounted it a year ago. If you are tired of airing up your wheelbarrow tire, this makes a good replacement. You can mount this with no special tools, as long as you are very determined. 808382

  • Best 4.80-8 Trailer Tire for a Trailer Towed Behind a Motorcycle
    First, trailer tires should be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. This is because trailer tires are built with a thick sidewall to handle more vertical load. If under inflated it will cause the thick sidewall to generate excessive heat and lead to tire failure. Without enough weight on the tires the trailer can bounce some. If it is feasible to do so add additional weight to the trailer to minimize that vertical movement. Kenda makes a good tire and for a 4.80-8 tire...

  • Rim Size Compatibility for Trailer Tire Size 4.80-12
    A 4.80-12 size tire will only fit on a 12 x 4-inch rim such as the one in wheel/tire part # AM30670 and wheel # AM22319HWTB. The smaller tire size 4.80-8 like item # AM10002 that you referenced will fit an 8 x 3-3/4-inch wide rim but again not a 12 x 3-inch one. You may care to check out the two linked articles on trailer tires for more information about tire and wheel compatibility. Do please note that a trailer wheel is measured from bead seat to bead seat, not edge to edge. You...

Both of these tire and wheel combos are rated for 81 miles per hour. You could go up to a larger tire size provided...

  • Can a 5.7 x 8 Trailer Tire Replace a 4.8 x 8 Tire
    As long as you have the additional clearance required by the bigger 5.70 x 8 you should have no problem installing this size tire as a replacement for your 4.8 x 8. The 5.7 x 8 will be 1 inch taller and .9 inches wider. If you measure your trailer and find that you have enough clearance for the additional height and width you should have no problems. I attached a link to all 5.70 x 8 tires we offer.

  • Can 8 inch Trailer Tires Handle Highway Speeds
    Check the sidewall of the tires on the trailer and you should find a speed rating. For this size 4.80-8 like the part # AM10002 the common speed rating is 65 mph which as long as you kept the speed under that you'd be fine.

  • Can I Install Tires with a Higher Speed Rating On a Coleman Columbia Camper
    I do have replacements for you but the bottom line is you won't be able to install a set of trailer tires with higher speed rating on your camper without lifting it as you don't have the space needed for them. The speed rating for trailer tires does not increase from 65 mph until you get to 12" diameter wheels which you are not going to be able to fit on your camper as is. Therefore, your best option would be to just replace the tires you have now with the Kenda Loadstar K371 Bias Trailer...

    The next size up from a 5.7-8 trailer tire is the 215/60-8 which is only .2 inches taller in diameter, yet it fits a rim that is twice as wide (7 inches). It would not fit on your current rims. The next biggest diameter tire that would be about the same in width to what you currently have would be to go to a 4.80-12 that would require you to go with a 12 inch rim. This will be almost 2-1/2 inches taller. For a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern rim you would want the part # AM30620, for a 5...

  • Why Is My Trailer Only Rated for 45 MPH
    I would also assume that your tires are what limits your speed rather than bearings but I would call the manufacturer just to be sure. In most cases, the limiting factor in regards to speed restrictions are the tires not the bearing which is true for most trailers on the road today. I am not aware of a low speed bearing used on trailers. If you have 4.80/4.00-8 tires on your trailer now then I recommend using the Kenda Loadstar K371 Bias Trailer Tire part # AM10002 which have a 65 mph...

  • How to Choose the Correct Hub and Wheel for a Trailer with a 4.80-8 Tire
    To make sure we choose the correct wheel and hub for your trailer, we are going to need a little more information about the spindle on your trailer. I assume the 1.250 shaft that you mention is the spindle on your trailer. Most trailer spindles are tapered and the spindle does not usually have the same diameter the entire length of the spindle. To make sure we choose the correct hub for you, we will need a few measurements from your spindle. We will need the diameters for the inner...

  • Balancing a Trailer Tire with Weights or Beads
    You can use beads or weights to balance your tires if desired, but you will need to use a pin plate adapter to do so with trailer tires. Because of the design of trailer tires, the need for specific balancing is not the same as vehicle tires. Most trailer tires are simply balances by matching the high heavy spot to the tire with the low light spot on the wheel. All of the combinations we carry are balanced in that manner so you can simply install them and get on the road. I've...

  • Are 480x12 Trailer Tires the Same as 4.80x12 and Will a 5.30X12 Fit in Place of a 4.80X12
    Tire size 480x12 is the same as 4.80x12. And 530x12 is the same as 5.30x12. So yes, you can use 4.80x12 tires. For a 4.80x12 in load range C I recommend Taskmaster tire # TTWSF48012C. It is rated for 990 pounds at 90 psi. When inflated it is 20.5 inches tall with a section width of 4.75 inches. I have linked a video review of this tire for you.

The tires we sell that are the same size as yours have capacities of 590 lbs and 760 lbs depending on the load range of the tire. One of these tires would be adequate for your setup. You will need to check the weight capacity of your tires and wheels to determine if your setup is adequate.

  • Should Inner Tube Be Used with Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002
    I want to start by thanking you again for your purchase. We truly appreciate your business. The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10002, that you purchased do not require a tube. This tire is specifically designed for use without a tube and using one would cause too much heat build-up and result in premature failure of the tire. Since our trailer tires are not designed to use the inner tube, we do not carry them.

  • Recommended Tire Pressure for 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range B Trailer Tire
    The proper amount of pressure in a 4.80/4.00-8 load range B tire would be 60 psi. This should be listed somewhere on the sidewall of the tire. Unlike passenger car tires, trailer tires should be kept inflated to the maximum pressure as stated on the tire itself.

  • Can 8 Inch Trailer Tires be Replaced with 12 Inch Trailer Tires
    Hey, thanks. You're not so bad yourself! Going to a larger tire size is possible but there are a few things to think about. Chief among these things is clearance. When going from an 8 inch tire to a 12 inch tire the diameter will increase by 4.4 inches. This means that if there is anything above the tire such as a fender the larger tire may not fit. Even if you have the clearance now you also have to account for the travel of the suspension. The width between the two sizes is not...

The problems come with weight capacity. The 4.80-8 trailer tires are only available in load range B and C while your original size tire is available in load range B, C and D.

  • Which is Better for Highway Use 4.80-12 or 5.30-12 Trailer TIres
    The 5.30-12 tires, being wider, are going to make more contact with the road. This means that the noise, and heat build up will be higher than a 4.80-12 tire but the rolling resistance will actually be less because the tire is larger diameter. The wider a tire is the more contact it makes with the road and the more contact with the road the more you are going to feel bumps as you travel. A 4.80-12 tire will be 20.5 inches in diameter whereas a 5.30-12 tire will be 21.9 inches. You would...
