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.

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 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

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 have mixed feelings. As far as e-trailer (and Lisa their representative), you could not ask for anything better! The tire on the other hand, I think I'll hold my opinion. I ordered 5 of these tires in 2017. Was mounted and balanced on a 35 foot 5th wheel camper. I also bought a tire pressure/temperature monitor to assure I always had the 110 pound pressure recommended . Never drove over 65 miles per hour. Had only about 2000 miles on these tires and still on last trip one of them blew out. Luckily no damage to camper and I was only about 3 miles from making it home. God was with me, but I bought these tires (and other equipment) to avoid ever having these problems again (at least for a few thousand miles). 697860

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Radial in Tires and Wheels


I am very happy with my new spare tire. I had converted to Radials for better pothole and nail protection. I had the rims and could not find just the tire. It is going on my Whaler trailer. Yes even off season I have begun to spread the word about your prices. WEST MARINE WOULD ONLY SELL ME ONE ON A RIM AND IT WAS $160.00. I HIGHLY recommend your service people for their help. Since you told me about radial tires in a smaller size I may do 3 on my other trailer. Your packing it was great because it was hard to open! That kept the tire in great condition.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Troubleshooting Tire Blowouts on Toy Hauler Trailer
    Everything that you described sounds normal so the only way that you'd be having blowouts it if you are exceeding the max speed limit, the weight capacity, or have an incorrect psi (according to the sidewall of the tire). The psi rating of a tire will naturally increase some during travel due to the friction from the road. Seeing 8 - 9 psi greater than what the tires are at when they are cold is completely normal. You definitely can upgrade your tires to a load range F like the Karrier...

  • Valve Stem to Use with Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire for Higher PSI Rating
    The wheels you have now will have no problem with the PSI of 110 that you mentioned but the valve stems might depending on what's in there now. Best option will be to order new valve stems with the tires that have the higher pressure rating like the # AM20906. These are rated for up to 200 psi.

    You definitely should not put a passenger vehicle on a trailer as they are not designed for the vertical loads that trailers typically see.

  • 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...

  • How to Determine when a Trailer Tire was Built
    On a tire's sidewall there will be a 4-digit date code. For example if it is 3215 that means that the tire was made in the 32nd week of 2015. I have included a picture showing a date code on a tire. In the picture that tire was built in the 25th week of 2011 so its an older picture. Also the date code may not be on both sides of the tire so if you do not see it on one sidewall it will be on the other side.

  • 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...

However, when it comes to tires you have to keep in mind that not all of the trailer's weight will be on its wheels, some of that weight will be on the tow vehicle at the hitch.

    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...
