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

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

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

Thank you so much! Yes, my four tires arrived in perfect condition in 3 out of 3-5 days, which was greatly appreciated as I had to be out of town the next day, and my regular UPS guy, who has common sense and pride in his work, hid them between my camper and garage door as per my note that I hadn't put out yet. OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE ALL AROUND---PERFECT!!!!!!!! Thank you Carol and eTrailer! I will be back. 575932

Good Tire from a great company. This is the only Load Range D tire I could find in a 14" rim size but this tire has been an excellent purchase. I could not be happier with my purchase and my tire dealer was happy to mount them because they knew that they did not sell a load range D tire in a 14". 431268


Comments

Great tire. After another year of use the tires still look like new. The load range D tires carry the weight better and gives me great peace of mind.

New tires arrived VERY quickly. Amazingly fast delivery .......5 tires arrived in individual boxes, very impressive delivery system!! Tires appear to be very heavy duty re sidewalls, I did read the reviews before ordering and am hoping for good results. Not exactly happy that the build dates on the tires are over one year old..........and yes I did read the rebuttle to someone elses pointing out the one year old thing. Tires made in China. Hoping for the best based upon many positive reviews. 567758

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

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

Got the new tires and had them mounted up. Im glad etrailer had a better small tire for my 5x8 trailer. Ive Had other tire shops tell me 4 or 6ply was the only ply available for the small trailer i had and the farm stores only offered the 4 or 6 ply tire. Etrailer had 10 ply,radial tires for my need that is rated up to 65 mph on the highway and im very happy. Living on a gravel road, and using the small trailer on the farm i would have flat tires all the time with the old weaker 6 ply tires it came with and they wouldnt last very Long if used them on the pavement. 562655

This is a great trailer tire! I purchased these for my R-Pod 182G (I'm guessing around 3500lbs fully loaded) for a cross-country road trip. I wanted a more robust tire so I could travel at 70 mph without constantly worrying if the tires would blow-out. 3800 miles in two weeks and the tires handled perfectly and still look new. I filled them with nitrogen because I was traversing a wide range of elevations (7200'-500') and I didn't want to worry about pressure fluctuations. They were filled to 65psi when the tires were a little warm so they ended up being about 60psi when cold, but they never got above 70psi when hot. This is a great tire if you have a trailer that usually uses a Load Range "C", 6 ply tire. E-trailer made my order very painless, offering free shipping, which I had to forgo and pay $7.95 for 3-5 day shipping, because I needed them that week. The tires arrived in great shape in 3 days. 270276

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range E and F Trailer Tires in the Same Size
  • The difference between a load range E and load range F tire of the same size, 235/85-16, is the weight capacity and pressure. The Karrier Radial Tire, Load Range E, # AM10295, has a capacity of 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. The Load Range F Tire, # AM10501, has a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 95 psi. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi rating indicated on the tire. If a tire is under inflated, it will cause the side wall to build up more heat faster and cause the tire...

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Tires for a 5th Wheel Trailer with 235/85-16 Tires
  • I recommend using an ST (special trailer) tire, like # AM10501. This is a load range F tire with a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 95 psi for a total capacity for 4 of 15,840 pounds. Another option that is a little less expensive is a load range E tire, # AM10295 that you referenced rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. Four of these tires on a tandem axle trailer will provide a total capacity of 14,560 pounds. These are radial tires which will give you the best ride and longest life. Special...

  • Are Trailer Tires Better for a Trailer than Light Truck Tires
  • Light truck tires (LT) are sometimes used in RV applications but generally not on utility trailers. Light truck tires are a type of passenger vehicle tire and as such they are not built with as thick of a sidewall as trailer tires. A thicker sidewall allows a trailer tire to handle more vertical load. I recommend going with ST trailer tires. The ST stands for special trailer. A trailer tire can fail for several reasons. Overloading a tire can cause it to fail. You are towing a lot of...

  • What is the Difference Between 235/80-16 and 235/85-16 Trailer Tires
  • Do you by any chance mean 235/80-16 and 235/85-16? Because there isn't a 275 trailer tire size that I have seen. If so then the widths are the same between the two 235 sizes. The difference is overall diameter. The 235/80-16 is 30.9 inches in diameter. The 235/85-16 is 31.7 inches in diameter. A difference of 0.8 inches but only half of that, 0.4 inches, applies to above the tire. It is unlikely that 0.4 inches will cause a fit issue but you can check to make sure there is space enough...

  • How to Determine if a Torsion Axle Needs to be Replaced and Lifting a Trailer Off the Ground
  • It is certainly possible for any axle to wear out enough over time to need replacing. Since the suspension is built into a torsion axle if the suspension part was to wear out pretty much the only solution would be to replace the axle. If the deflection, or amount of travel of the wheels, on the torsion axle has increased, caused the trailer to bottom out, or is not the same on each side then that would be a good indication that something is wrong.

  • Can an ST235/80/16 Load Range F Trailer Tire be Safely Used on a 15k 5th Wheel Trailer

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.

The trailer axle capacity should be located on a sticker or plate on the frame. Avoid loading the trailer beyond its capacity and use tires with an appropriate weight carrying capacity.

  • Tire Choice for 18K-Gross Weight 5th Wheel Toy Hauler that Has Frequent Blowouts
  • The most common causes for a tire blowout on a heavy trailer are incorrect inflation (too low or too high), overloading beyond rated capacity, running them at too high a speed or a problem with the trailer suspension or hubs that causes the tires to run out of proper alignment. This can place more stress on a small portion of the tire and lead to failure. If tires on all axles are failing then this last possibility is unlikely. It is always best to use the same trailer tire all around....

  • Replacement Tire Recommendation for a 14,000 Pound 5th Wheel Trailer with 235/80-16 Tires
  • You could go to a slightly larger tire, 235/85-16, and get a higher ply rating which will mean the tire will be stronger. I recommend # TTWPRG235R16 which is a Load Range G rated for 4,080 pounds at 110 psi. It has a ply rating of 14 and an M speed rating (81 miles per hour). The issue you have had could be related to capacity. If the front of the trailer is riding high then that puts more weight and stress on the axles. Be sure to keep the trailer level in addition to keeping the tires...

  • Availability of Load Range F or G Tire in Size 235/80-R16
  • The special travel trailer tires in size 235/80-R16 that we carry will not come in load range F or G. The tire that size that we carry is # AM10248 and is load range E. You may however be able to use a load range F tire like # AM10501. This tire is size 235/85-R16, so it will be a 1/2" taller. You want want to measure to make sure you have the required clearance. If so, you can go with # AM10501. For install details and some product demonstration videos, click the provided links.

  • Can 235/80-R16 Be Replaced with 235/85-16 Tires
  • There will be a small height difference between the two sizes you listed (the 235/85-16 will be about half an inch taller), but as long as you have room for the additional height you would be just fine. For a tire in that size I would recommend the # AM10501.

  • What Tires Do I Need for a 31 ft. 5th Wheel Trailer with a Dry Weight of 12400 lbs.
  • The Karrier ST235/85R16 load range E tire, # AM10295, has a max load rating of 3,640 lbs at 95 psi and the Karrier ST235/85R16 load range F tire, # AM10501, has a max load rating of 3,960 lbs at 95 psi. We also have the Karrier ST235/80R16 load range E tire, # AM10248, which has a max load rating of 3,500 lbs at 90 psi. For your trailer with a max weight rating of somewhere above the 12,400 lb load you mentioned, you could use any of the tires mentioned above. With the load range...

  • Is the Karrier Tire and the Loadstar Tire the Same Brand of Tire or Different
  • The Karrier tire and the Loadstar tire are separate lines of tires that are made by the Kenda tire company. If the same tire size is made in both brands they will interchange with each other as long as the load carrying capacities are the same on both tires. In the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range F, part # AM10501, that you have referenced, it is only available in the Karrier line of tires. Kenda has been producing many types of tires since 1962. In the their...

  • How to Read the Date Code on a Trailer Tire
  • First, the DOT date code on a tire is 4 numbers. The first 2 are the week and the last 2 are the year. So for example if it was 2314 that means that tire was made in the 23rd week of 2014. There isn't a difference between a tire sitting on the shelf that is 1 year old and the one next to it that is 1-1/2 or 2 years old. Now if one tire is a year old and the other was 6 years old then yes, the older one would have to go. On popular sizes like ST235/85R16 # AM10501 they come in and...

  • What is the Overall Height of an ST235/85R16 Trailer Tire Load Range E and F
  • First, the LT that is in front of your existing tires indicates you are using light truck tires. These tires are not designed for trailer use. ST or special trailer in front of the size indicates a trailer tire. Trailer tires are designed with a thicker side wall to handle more vertical load than passenger vehicle tires. In the 235/85-16 tire size, we only have the load range E tire # AM10295, and load range F, # AM10501. The load range F tire is going to have the higher capacity of...

  • Can ST235/80/R16 Trailer Tires be Replaced with ST235/85/R16 Trailer Tires

They are both radial tires. Tire # AM10295 is a load range E rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. Trailer tire # AM10501 is a load range F rated for 3,960 pounds at 95 psi. The larger size is taller by nearly 3/4 inches.Make sure you have room above the existing tires for the larger size.

  • How to Correct for Frequent 5th Wheel Trailer Tire Blowouts
  • You are correct that all trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi rating as shown on the tire sidewall. This is important for trailer tires since they can handle their rated weight load only when inflated fully to this maximum psi. Under-inflated tires will run hotter than they should and this will lead to failure. However, all trailer tires, unless they are specifically rated otherwise, will have a maximum speed rating of 65-mph. Few trailer tires are rated for higher...

  • Location of Manufacturer and Warranty of Kenda Tires
  • Kenda tires offer a 2 year limited warranty, and are manufactured in Taiwan or mainland China. We have sold Kenda tires for years, and when properly inflated and kept at or below their 65 mph speed rating and when used within their weight rating, they work very well. Always be sure to keep trailer tires inflated to the maximum psi listed on the sidewall. Failure to do so can lead to excess heat build up, which is the biggest enemy of trailer tires. I see that the tire you referenced...

  • Using Passenger Car Tires on Trailers
  • With a few possible exceptions (large fifth wheels that use LT or Light Truck Tires), we recommended that only trailer tires be used on trailers because they have stiffer sidewalls which do a better job dealing with the vertical load tires experience when installed on a trailer. Also, trailers don't have steering axles, which means the cornering forces trailer tires experience are different than those passenger car tires would. For a tire to blow out at the sidewall like you described,...

  • 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...

  • Best Trailer Tire in Size 235/75-16
  • The best option we have for the trailer tire size 235/75-16 is the part # LHWL410. This tire has a capacity of 4,080-lb max load at 110 psi, has a speed rating of 75 mph. But what is really great is the 2 year roadside assistance program. If your RV or trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year from anywhere in the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico. I attached a...

  • Single Tire Versus Dual Tire Maximum Load on Tires for Kenda # AM10501 and 15,000lbs Tandem Trailer
  • Don't worry, I can help explain. The single tire notation of weight would be for your trailer's application. You are correct that the dual tire does mean two tires on each side of the axle like Dually trucks for a total of 4 tires per axle. The tire will also rated individually, so each # AM10501 tire will be able to carry 3,960lbs at 95psi so for an axle total of 7,920lbs at 95psi. This will mean that your tandem axle trailer with the # AM10501 tire will be rated at 15,840lbs at...
