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.

I needed new tries for my 5th wheel trailer that provided a heavier load limit more durable tire than the stock tires that came on the trailer. I selected the Karrier ST 235/85R16 as it met the list of item I was looking for in a tire. Etrailer was great to deal with. Their web site was user friendly and their service was a pleasurable experience. Etrailer made shipment of the tires the same day I placed the order, and I received them in 5 days. I will look at etrailer for future purchases of my trailer needs! 49310

I had a fairly lengthy discussion with you about the age of the tires I was going to order. I asked if there was any way to check the age before ordering and/or shipping. You assured me that you had a fairly rapid turnover of your tire stock and the tires would be fairly new. You even offered to put in a request to ship the newest on hand. I was very pleased with my order from you over 7 years ago. In that order, the whole set of 5 tires were less than 3 months old. I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was to receive this most recent order. 3 of the tires were a year plus 3 months old and the other 2 were just shy of a year old. I mentioned how you never wear out the tread on trailer tires. They just get old and start to crack and fall apart. Now I'm starting with a set of supposedly "new" tires that are already well over a year old. VERY VERY DISSATISFIED!!! 557704


Comments

Its not unheard of for tires to arrive at our location that were manufactured a year or so before we receive them. The tires are manufactured overseas. After they are manufactured, they sit in a warehouse for a period of time until theyre packed in a shipping container and ultimately loaded on a container ship and shipped to the US. The trip here and entry through US Customs can take more than a month or more. The tires then sit in a warehouse in the US until we order and receive them. Tires that are stored in a warehouse under controlled conditions dont age or dry rot like tires that are exposed to the elements and UV radiation do. The fact that your tires were around a year old when you received them will not have any effect on their lifespan or future durability. They should be good until the tread wears out or up to 6-7 years whichever comes first assuming they are not stored in direct sunlight, not overloaded, are kept properly inflated and their speed rating isnt being exceeded.

I was asked to rate these tires a couple of weeks after I bought them. Heck I hadn't even had them mounted on the rims yet. I deleted that e-mail. I refuse to recommend any product until I actually have had a chance to use it. Personally I use "recommendations" from other users to help me make up my mind on purchasing products I know little about. So I feel it is important to evaluate a product honestly as I can to help others to make a decision. Back to what I think about AM10501--- They are three times the quality of tires that came from the factory on my 14,000 pound 5th wheel camper. We have been on 1 extended road trip, and several shorter (under 200 miles) trips. And thank God no more blow outs. The 2 blow outs I had before I bought these tires cost upwards of $3500 to repair the damage the tire caused. So avoiding additional blow outs was my main objective, and here a year later, I'm happy to say, these tires and etrailer's help in choosing them has been a success. 526004

These tires are a higher PR rated tire which is why I bought these to begin with. However, the tread itself is not rated for any extra weight and after only 1 year, tire is worn down. So maybe a 5 star rating for the PR rating and for holding itself together, but 0 stars for the tread design. The weight that I'm hauling is 6360 per axle (2 tires). To this date I have not yet found a low price tire that can handle higher loads without issues. Will be switching to a more commercial looking tread tire... 409571

These tires came shortly after I ordered them. I'm getting the 5th wheel ready for our yearly trip out west, and am excited about the "F" load rating of these tires. I'll be able to head west without the worry of will these tires be able to handle the trip. Good looking tire, great tread design... all around well built tire. As always etrailer was prompt with their delivery and all around great service. Thanks! 271997

Kenda has been around since 1962, so I'm guessing these tires will be good. They certainly look good, and needed very little weight for balance, which is a sign of quality. I also wanted Radials, as here in Texas we have lots of straight, high speed highways. If there are any problems, I'll do a follow-up. 614301

Comments

Please keep in mind that running a tire with a higher load rating will not necessarily increase the load bearing capacity of your trailer. You will still be limited by the capacity of the lowest rated component.

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Radial in Tires and Wheels


I needed four tires for a travel trailer and two plus new springs for a boat trailer. Customer service was very helpful with wisdom about tires and searching for some hardware we couldn't exactly match but found some good enough. Gave me her number at end of first call in case I needed any more help and I did. A few hours after ordering I got email reporting all shipped. All arrived on predicted time. Over the years I have noticed that tire quality is often approximately reflected in visible details like the fit of the mold segments, amount of flash, the surface finish, sharpness of details. These are some of the prettiest tires I've ever seen that weren't top of the line Michelins, Pirellis or Bridgestones. I gave them a roll and a sharp eye and saw no wavers vertical or horizontal. Of course the ultimate issue is price. I don't know how you do it. No store in Jacksonville can come close. Even Wal-mart. 595740

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Radial in Tires and Wheels


Only just put tires on, so can't yet report on them. They look/feel well made. etrailer made good on their 110% price guarantee when I proved a lower price elsewhere. When it appeared there was going to be a delay in shipping they called and offered an alternative tire which I chose to decline and waited for these. They arrived earlier than anticipated however. Easy transaction, hope the tires are as good as other reviews. A word of warning; the shop took 8 hours yesterday to do a laser alignment on my Correct Track equipped 5th wheel and to mount these 4 tires. Adding insult to injury, they billed a half hour apiece to mount them, or $270! I almost blew a gasket after they had told me that it would only be a couple of hours and that I'd be fine waiting. The sign on the wall for $29 (each) mounting was if you bought their tires (very fine print). Needless to say I didn't let them get away with that. I at least give them credit for honoring the $29 sign on the wall after arguing it. Next time I'll be getting them mounted elsewhere.... 484278

This is the exact same O.E. tire on my camper. They are a great tire. This tire was only purchased to have as a spare. I have purchased tires in the past that were made in China ( not this brand) and had constant blowouts. These are better made ( still made in China) and so far I’ve had good luck with them. Please see my review of the rim I purchased for this tire. 565442

Really nice tires at a good price. Arrived in a few days. They installed great on my pop-up camper that had bias tires. Well worth the extra money to get radial tires. I'm very pleased with the fast service and great quality. Had them put on the rims by my local tire store. I just couldn't break the bead to get the old tires off the rim. 430593

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Radial in Tires and Wheels


After blowing two tires the same day and destroying two rims On our enclosed cargo trailer, I went searching for a quality tire with good reviews. My first stop as always was etrailer where I selected a tire with a D Load rating to replace my C's, this was based off the manufacture specs and reviews. I then looked elsewhere for validation of the tire quality and price like any good consumer. I found a cheaper price and shot a note to etrailer with the website that had the lesser price and within 4-hours I received a note from Nikki telling me they will honor the price and provided instructions To send her my etrailer order number once I placed it. Well in a matter of minutes I placed the order and Nikki credited my card for the price difference. In addition I always get a notification from George when my product ships and a follow up once it is delivered to make sure everything was okay So you ask why I shop at Etrailer? How about best price, excellent web site with good product data, free shipping and fantastic customer service to name a few !! 562980

I recieved the trailer tires really fast. They have a good tread design and when mounted look great. I installed them on a very small travel trailer which came out with a load range C. These have a load range D which should be an improvement due to a little more pressure and carring capacity. I am very pleased with the delivery time and looks of the tires. 119820

  • 110 PSI Valve Stems for Trailer Tires
  • In almost all cases the limiting factor for tire pressure on a wheel setup is the valve stem. If you upgrade the valve stem in your wheels to ones that can handle 110 psi like what the part # AM10501 calls for you'd be fine. Usually valve stems that are rated for 110 psi will be metal such as # AM20906.

  • Can 285/85-16 Trailer Tires be Used in Place of 285/80-16 Tires that Keep Blowing Out
  • First, trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire sidewall. this is because trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall than passenger vehicle tires. If under inflated the thicker tires will generate excessive heat leading to failure. I recommend sticking with the size indicated by the manufacturer, 235/80-16, # TTWTRTM2358016E. This tire is rated for 3,520 pounds at 80 psi. If you were to go up to a 235/85-16 the tire would be 0.7 inches taller...

  • Replacing 235/80-16 80 psi Trailer Tires with 235/85-16 Rated for 110 psi
  • As long as you have the clearance on your trailer you can increase the size to the 235/85-16 tires # AM10501. The psi of a rim is determined by the valve stem. You'll need one rated for over 100 psi which will be metal like # AM20906.

  • Speed Rating of Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501
  • Trailer tires are rated for speeds up to 65 mph. Speeds in excess of this rating are not recommended as this can lead to heat build-up and premature failure. If a tire is rated to run at a higher speed, this information should be listed on the tire's sidewall. The linked article on trailer tires covers this and many other common concerns.

  • Is There Benefit to Going with Trailer Tire with Higher Load Rating Than Needed
  • All things being equal, including price, I'd go with the higher rated tire when available. Even if it's not really needed you end up with a tire that's made a bit stronger. The biggest difference you'll notice is that you'll have to inflate the tires to a higher PSI since the higher the Load Rating the higher the pressure requirement. You should note that trailer tires need to be inflated to their max PSI rating to ensure you get the full weight capacity. In theory the higher PSI rating...

  • Why Do Trailer Tires Have a Lower Capacity When Used in a Dually Setup

Also the inner tire can be more loaded than the outer because of the crown in the road. The loads shared by the...

  • Comparison of Kenda and Taskmaster 235/85R16 Trailer Tires
  • The Kenda Karrier # AM10501 and Taskmaster Provider # TTWPRG235R16 are both 235/85R16 sized tires that are quite similar. The main difference is the Load Range and therefore load capacity. The Kendas have a Load Range F with a maximum capacity of 3,960 pounds at 95 psi and the Taskmasters have a Load Range G with a maximum capacity of 4,080 pounds at 110 psi. Both are manufactured in Asia. As are nearly all tires these days, unfortunately. If you haven't already gotten them you'll...

  • Can an ST235/80/16 Load Range F Trailer Tire be Safely Used on a 15k 5th Wheel Trailer
  • There seems to be a mix up somewhere. Trailer tire # AM10501 that you have referenced is size 235/85-16, not 235/80. We have 2 tires in size 235/85-16. First, # AM10501, is a load range F and is rated for 3,960 pounds at 95 psi. Then we have # AM10295, load range E, rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. So the load range F tire is rated higher. For tire size 235/80-16 we have 1 tire, # AM10248, rated for 3,197 pounds at 90 psi. As far as if any of the above tires can be used on a 14,800...

  • Upgraded 5th Wheel Trailer Wheels/Tires to Avoid Blowouts on Long Distance Highway Travel
  • Today a tire's ply rating does not necessarily match its actual ply construction. This is due to improved materials and manufacturing technology allowing, for example, a 5-ply tire to perform like an 8-ply used to. Most trailer tires these days are made in China, but they have to meet the very same DOT standards as all others, including those tires made in the U.S. The highest rated ST225/75R15 radial trailer tire we offer is the Kenda Karrier # AM10303, which has a Load Range E...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a 15k Trailer with 16 inch Trailer Rims
  • I did some research on the Provider ST Tire F835 that you have, and it looks like the tire has a 4,080 lb capacity when inflated to 110 psi. Based on that you would have a total of 16,320 lbs of tire capacity since you have 4 tires on your setup. That should be enough capacity for you since you have a 15k GVW. The only option we have that would be pretty close to that would be the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501. This has a 3,960 lb capacity when inflated to 95 psi...

  • Recommended Replacement ST235/80R16 Tires for 5th-Wheel Trailer
  • Trailer tire failure is usually a result of excess heat, which can arise from a variety of potential causes. The first important factor to always consider is the inflation of your trailer tires. A tire that is under or over-inflated will build up more internal heat. You should always make sure that all of the tires on your trailer are inflated to their maximum cold psi pressure as listed on the tire sidewall. Next, you always want to make sure you are not overloading the tire with...

  • Recommended Replacement Tires For 12,500 Lb Trailer
  • I have attached a couple of helpful articles about tires that you can check out. The article that is titled Trailer Tire Frequently Asked Questions explains the difference between trailer tires and those used on a vehicle. A trailer tire has tougher sidewalls due to the excessive weight they are made to carry. Typical reasons for tire failure are improper inflation, excessive speed, and overloading. Normally, we recommend a good radial tire unless it is used for off-road applications...

  • Load Range and Inflation for Tires on 2017 Grand Design Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • You will be able to use your current rims with new tires that have a higher psi rating so long as you also have a valve stem that is also rated for a higher psi. I looked up the G614 tires you referenced and found they were 235/85R16 tires; the load range F rated tire we have available in that size is the Kenda Karrier # AM10501 which is rated for 3,520 lbs at 110 psi. A valve stem that would allow you to use this tire on lower rated rims is the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem #...
