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.

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

  • 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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Wheel and Tire Recommendation for Tire Size 4.80/4.00-8 on 4 Lug Wheel
    You are going to have to upgrade your trailer wheel too as it is designed for use with tube tires. For a wheel and tire in the size of the # AM10002 which has a tire size of 4.80/4.00-8 you would want the part # AM30040 which comes with a white wheel with the same 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern you need.

  • What are the Dimensions of a 5.70 x 8 Tire
    The overall diameter of a 5.70 x 8 tire and wheel is 18.1 inches. The overall diameter of the tire that you referenced # AM1002 is 16.1 inches. I have included a link to the 5.70 x 8 inch tires that we currently have available. Of these the section width of these tires is 5.8 and 5.9 inches, and the overall diameter is. I have included links to a couple of informational articles about trailer tire and sizing for your reference.

  • 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.

  • Replacement 5.70-8 Tires for a Taylor Dunn B36 Electric Industrial Cart
    If you just wanted to get the tires and not replace the wheels you can use # AM10013. This is a 5.70-8 tire, load range D, with a capacity of 1,075 pounds at 100 psi. 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.

  • How to Determine Bolt Pattern for a Trailer Wheel Replacement
    It sounds like the new 12 inch wheel and tire combo you have is designed to fit a different bolt pattern hub than what your trailer currently has. The bolt pattern of a wheel tells us the number of lugs (or bolt holes) and the diameter of the circle the lugs sit on. For example, a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern lets us know we need a wheel with 5 lugs that are spaced out evenly on a circle that has a 4-1/2" diameter. Most likely your trailer either has a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern or it has...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Does the K371 4.80-8 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 Use a Tube
    Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 is a tubeless tire. No tubes required or recommended for this tire. Actually tube tires are becoming less common. Some people will still use a tube even if the tire is not a tube tire in agricultural applications for additional strength. But this can lead to the tire overheating quickly if towed on pavement at speed.

  • 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.

  • 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...

    It really just depends on the weight capacities of your rim and tire. 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. The weight capacity of the tire should be stamped on the sidewall along with the maximum psi recommendation for the tire. You always...

  • 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.

  • 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...

    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.

    The weight rating is per tire so it will be a combined weight of 2 x 785lbs or 2 x 990lbs per axle. The size you mentioned 4.80-12 with a 4 inch rim can handle the load range B of 2 x 785lbs for a total of 1,570lbs at 60 psi or a load range C of 2 x 990lbs for a total of 1,980lbs at 90 psi like the tire and wheel combo # TTWA12WM.

    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...

    You can replace a 4.80-8 trailer tire with a 4.80-12 or a 5.30-12 trailer tire, but there are a few things to consider before making the change. First, 4.80-12 and 5.30-12 tires are going to have a larger overall diameter than a 4.80-8 tire, by about 4 inches, so you will want to make sure your trailer has enough room in the fender well to accept the larger tire and wheel.
