The tire arrived right on time. It looks perfectly fine. I couldn't ask for more. I was able to get the old tire off the rim with a little work. I expect it may be a bit more difficult to mount the new one. It's a bit more stiff. Perhaps I should have ordered it mounted on a rim. At this point, I'm very satisfied. John 575209

My sailboat beach dolly desperately needed new tires, but I had to gamble at what kind to purchase beyond the size markings I could find on the cheap Chinese treds furnished when I bought the boat 3 years ago. Etrailer seemed to have good prices and clear, easy-to-navigate web pages. I had already purchased some oversize tires from another online retailer and was disappointed with the shipment, and I'm not sure I'll be able to get them on the line to return that purchase. From the looks of the Etrailer web site, I figured I would probably be happier, even if I needed to return them. These new tires were delivered as promised, with great follow-up messages from the team at eTrailer at each point in the order fulfillment process, and they were in perfect condition on delivery. I'm so impressed with the quality of the service and the efforts that each person who contacted me made to deliver the best service that I'm going to tell all my buddies looking for new tires for their trailers. The Wheel Chocks are great--sure, they're plastic, but they are heavy-duty and will last longer than the 4x4 pieces of wood I have used until now. Thanks, Etrailer guys and gals! 62259

This is not the first time I have purchased from etrailer, every time I've always gotten exactly what I ordered at the best price. The shipping has always been prompt, usually right on the promised date and sometimes sooner. All of the parts on my order are to re-equip a small boat trailer. The AM20001 wheel was exactly what I ordered, quality and finish is excellent. The Kenda Loadstar tires I also purchased also appear to be excellent quality, no pictures yet to share. Thank you again for your great service. 601681

I was gone when they came but I assume they arrived in a timely manner. The tire size is correct. I was led to Believe I was to receive a Kendra tire based on the website advertisement but nothing on the tires say Kendra. Instead it said Load Star on the side made in China. All the reviews I read about Kendra were good but I know nothing about LoadStar. I wish you wouldn't bait and switch but it will probably be ok I guess. 542299

With this purchase, both my wheelbarrows now have four ply rated tires. The original tires were easily punctured by blackberry thorns and these are not, due to the sturdier construction. 541728

Looks good, heavy duty. I used these tires to replace the ones on my utility cart that I use in the garden and pull with my tractor. These are trailer tires but I expect them to last alot longer than the previous low quality tires that were on the cart. Better quality than what I expected, seeing as how all of these small tires are now made in China. 501227

These trailer tires have been the very best UPGRADE I have done to my WHEELBARROW !!! I am a landscaper and use high-end wheelbarrows (Scenic Road & Brentwood) and the number one issue has been leaking or flat tires. Yes, I have tried most "No Flat" tires/models and have been very disappointed at the high rolling resistance of them especially under load. These tires will fit the typical wheelbarrow rim and I have replaced the tires myself using 3 tire irons and "a helper". Just make sure your rims are in good shape and no bead sealer is needed. These tires are built to "highway use" standards, have lots of tread depth, DON'T LEAK and best of all are rated @ 60psi (easy rolling) compared to the standard OEM 35 psi "balloon" WB tires. The overall height of this replacement tire is a bit taller but you will no longer have any issues of catching the front noseguard of your WB on an incline. So, when your WB tire needs replacing buy these much higher quality WB replacement tires! 487564

Having a time getting tire to seat on the rims, cleaned rim seat, they weren't dirty in the first place and have two tire straps on. Still no go, will take somewhere and try to hit with high volume blast to try to make seat. No boat ride tomorrow I guess. Never had this problem before. 470283


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.

Ask the Experts about this Kenda Tires and Wheels
Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • Recommendation for 4.80-12 Utility Trailer Tires
  • Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 is a 4.80/4.00-8 meaning it is for 8 inch wheels whereas a 4.80-12 is for a 12 inch wheel. For 4.80-12 tires we have several options depending on the load range (capacity) you need. I have included a link to them for you. I recommend going with the one radial option we have in this size; # TT48012C. Radial tires run cooler and track better than bias ply tires. This tire is a load range C rated for 990 pounds at 90 psi. Trailer tires should always...

  • Speed Rating of 8 Inch Trailer Tires
  • We have several different tire sizes that fit on 8 inch wheels but they all have the same 65 MPH speed rating. They're all bias Kenda tires and I've linked video reviews of each of them for you. # AM10002 is 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range B # AM10004 is 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range C # AM40537 is 18x8.50-8 - Load Range B # AM10010 is 5.70-8 - Load Range B # AM10012 is 5.70-8 - Load Range C # AM1HP22 is 165/65-8 - Load Range C # AM1HP28 is 215/60-8 - Load Range D

  • 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. By comparison a 5.30x12 load range C tire such as # TTWSF53012C is rated for 1,045 pounds at 80 psi. It does fit the same wheels as the 4.80x12...

  • How to Find Correct Replacement Tires for 4.80 - 8 4 Ply Trailer Tires
  • Your 4.80-8 size tire is the same as a 4.80/4.00-8 size tire. If the tires and rims are all original then we know they're compatibe with one another so there's no need to measure anything. It also says you have a 4-ply tire which is Load Range B. The tire probably mentions a maximum weight capacity as well which is better to use than the ply rating. Look for this number and make sure the tires you get are rated or at least as much capacity as what you have. Looking at your picture...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Correct Inflation Pressure for 4.80/4.00-8 Load Range B Trailer Tire
  • All of our Load Range B trailer tires in size 4.80/4.00-8 specify a pressure of 60-psi. The same size tires in Load Range C require higher 90-psi pressure in order to meet their higher weight carrying spec. All tire and wheel/tire items in this size that we sell appear on the linked page. Your tires should indicate right on their sidewall what their maximum pressure is and this is what they should be inflated to when cold. All tires will naturally warm up as you drive and you do...

  • Trailer Tire and Wheel with Smaller Diameter than 5.70-8
  • We have tires that are 2 inches shorter in diameter than your current size of 5.70-8 with the size 4.80-8 like part # AM30070 which has matching bolt pattern as yours as well. But it's actually thinner than what you currently have.

  • Speed Rating of Trailer Tires
  • If there is a speed rating on the tires, that will be your max speed. These are normally a letter code found on the sidewall of the tire (M - 81 mph, L - 75 mph, J - 62 mph). If there is not a speed rating on the tire sidewall, the default speed is 65 mph max. I've attached an article to help further. Let me know if you have other questions.

If you were needing a wheel/tire combo, you'll need to know the bolt pattern of your existing wheels, 4 lug on a 4 inch bolt circle or 5 lug on a 4-1/2 inch bolt circle.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • What is Speed Rating of Trailer Tires in Size 4.80-8
  • For smaller tire sizes like the 4.80-8 that you mentioned the highest speed rating we have is 65 mph like the part # AM10002. This is in part due to the smaller diameter of the tire which means it will be spinning more revolutions at the same speed as a larger tire. This increases heat build up.

The tire/wheel item you referenced, part # AM30050, includes this C-rated tire on a galvanized 4-on-4 wheel. All of these trailer tires carry a speed rating of 65-mph.

  • Can Trailer Tires be Upsized from 4.80-8 to 5.70-8
  • Both the 4.80/4.00-8 Trailer Tire, like # AM10002 that you selected, and the 5.70-8 Trailer Tire, like # AM10010, are designed to fit on 8 x 3-3/4 inch rims, so the larger tires will mount on your rims. The larger tire will be 2 inches taller, which means you will have 1 inch less of fender clearance. I attached a help article on trailer tires plus a review video for the # AM10010 for you to check out.

  • 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 roll resistance, noise, and heat build up will be higher than a 4.80-12 tire. 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 need to make sure that the is more than 3/4 of an inch above the...

  • Replacement Trailer Tire Recommendation for Size 4.80-8
  • The Load Range C tire in your size part # AM10004 would work well, but if you really don't need the additional capacity the B part # AM10002 would work too. The Load Range C has a capacity of 745 lbs at 90 psi and the B has a capacity of 590 lbs at 60 psi. Both tires are DOT approved and designed for highway use so they would work fine on your road trip.

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range B and C Trailer Tires
  • Load range B trailer tires are going to have a lower capacity than C load range tires. Basically that, psi rating, and the ply rating are the only differences. A higher load range tire would last a little longer than lower load ranges of the same size but it will not increase the capacity of the trailer. If you go with tire # AM10004 it is rated for 745 pounds at 90 psi. And tire # AM10002 is rated for 590 pounds at 60 psi. Both tires will fit 8 inch x 3-3/4 inch wheels. I have included...

Four of these will have a capacity of 4,300 pounds so they can handle the 3500 pound total of the cart when fully loaded. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. This is because trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall to handle more vertical load.

  • Availability of a 4.80/4.00 x 12 Trailer Tire and Wheel Combo
  • What you have to remember is that the 1.2 inches taller # AM10002 tire will actually only be 0.6 inches closer to the fender because the extra height is distributed evenly above and below the axle. Take a look at the trailer and see if there is space enough for the extra 0.6 inches (just under 5/8 inches). If so then you can go with a 4.80-12 tire. If there is not space enough then you would either have to go to a smaller tire size (all the way down to an 8 inch) or modify the fender...

  • What Is Maximum Highway Speed For Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire
  • The maximum speed rating for trailer tires is 65 MPH. The B rating is the load rating for the tire, which is 590 pounds at 65 PSI. You always want to have the tires of your trailer inflated to the maximum PSI rating at all times. If they are not inflated to maximum PSI, the thick sidewalls can heat up and wear faster than normal. I have linked an FAQ on trailer tires that you may find as a good reference.

  • Will a 5.30 x 12 Trailer Tire Fit the Same Rim as a 4.80 x 12 Trailer Tire
  • Yes, a 5.30 x 12 tire will fit the same rim as a 4.80 x 12 tire. Both tire sizes fit on a 4 inch wide rim. There are a couple of things to consider when changing tire sizes. First, the larger 5.30 will be approximately 1.4 inches taller than the 4.80 so you will need to make sure that you have enough clearance above the tire. The 5.30 is also wider by 1/2 an inch so you will need to make sure there is clearance behind the tire as well for the new size. Also, the capacity of the larger...

  • Are the Kenda Loadstar Trailer Tires Tubeless?
  • The Kenda Loadstar K371 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range B # AM10002 are tubeless tires. You simply need a valve stem on your wheel that is rated for over 60 psi to account for the 60 psi recommendation for this trailer tire. If you need new valve stems I recommend the 65 psi # AM20903.

  • What Does the 4.00 Mean on the Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire 4.80/4.00-8
  • On the Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10002, the 4.00 that you see is there so that people who have the older 4.00x8 tires, which are no longer available, will know that this size is compatible with their trailer. So if you are replacing 4.80 x 8 or 4.00 x 8, it will fit.

  • Recommended Replacement Tire for a 4.80 / 4.00-8 High Speed Tire 60 psi
  • Based on the pressure rating of your current tires, I recommend using the Kenda K371 Trailer Tire, # AM10002. This is a tubeless trailer tire that fits on 8" x 3-3/4" wheels with the Load Range B tire rating of 590 lbs. at 60 psi. which will work on your older style wheel. Our 8 inch tires are all rated to 65 mph. We also offer a Load Range C tire, # AM10004, with a maximum load rating of 745 lbs at 90 psi, but you likely have Load Range B tires if they have a 60 psi rating. It is best...

  • Does Changing the Air Pressure Change the Weight Capacity of a Trailer Tire
  • The short answer is 60 psi. If you put less air in tire # AM10002 the capacity does start to go down. But to avoid any potential problems you should just keep trailer tires inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. This is because trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall than passenger vehicle tires to handle more vertical load. If under inflated the thicker sidewall generates excessive heat and can lead to failure.

  • 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...

  • Will the 5.30 x 12 Tire Size Fit a Small Camper With a 4.80 x 8 Tire
  • The 4.80 x 8 tire size that you have now is 16.1 inches tall and the overall width is 4.6 inches. If you go to the 5.30 x 12 tire size, the overall diameter is 21.9 inches tall and 5.6 inches wide. The first number (4.80 or 5.30) on the tire size designates the width range of your tire in inches. You will want to make sure you will have enough clearance on your camper for the 5.8 inch taller and 1 inch wider tire. I do not list a 5.40 x 12 tire size available. The 4.80 x 8 tire size...
