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 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 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 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.

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

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


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


Comments

Still going strong. No flats and tread wear is still doing great also. Id say theres only about 1000 miles on them as i dont use the trailer every day but i did use it on my farm where the other tires wouldnt last long before getting a flat from a cut off tree stump or thorns. I will buy again when needed and have told plenty other people about the tires and where to get them.

So happy to get these tires for my boat trailer. The radial tires will give better service than the bias tires. They replaced 4.80 X 12 Bias tires. The radials also handle more pounds per tire than the bias. Also, I have at least 8 sets of wheels so I went to the local nationwide department store and their auto department took off the old tires and mounted the new tires for $5.00 each. 616869

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Radial in Tires and Wheels


These tires are NICE tires! Taller than I expected, which is ok , because I put these tires on my little camper and gave it more ground clearance. I bought these tires because we pull our camper long distances and the bias tires were blowing out quite a bit. I haven't taken out my camper yet for a trial run but hoping these will give me what I need when we travel. 658958

Just what I was after to increase my load rating and speed. Shipped very fast received 4 days before expected. 540775


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.

Service at trailer is outstanding. Adam helped me locate the rims and tires for my 1951 Spartan Imperial Mansion. He worked directly with the supplier of the product to find me what I needed -- black rims and tires. They had them delivered to me in two days at no charge. You can't beat etrailer.com for value and service. I'll be buying more from them for sure. 436178

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Radial in Tires and Wheels


Know the load-range requirements of your trailer. On my trailer, the factory label calls for "Load-Range C" tires. This is not correct, and I can't believe the manufacturer even suggested them. According to the trailer specs, my trailer has a maximum weight of 7,500 lbs. ST205/75R14 trailer tires in load-range C are only rated for a dual-axle load of 1,570 pounds. That is a total of 6,280 pounds with 4 tires. However, in load-range D, the maximum dual-axle capacity is 1,930 pounds. That is a total of 7,720 pounds, or a better match to the rated capacity of the axle and trailer. Therefore, I am very glad that I switched to these Kenda tires, and I am optimistic that I will get much better service life from them than what I had before. 666707

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

Very economical choice to step up to a load range D tire. I had no luck locally finding a decent tire under $100ea so on a whim I checked etrailer. I bought (7) with free shipping and the tire quality looks good. I knocked off one star because dealing with the staples in the shipping boxes is a PITA and must be removed to recycle. 614738

Ask the Experts about this Kenda Tires and Wheels

Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • 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.

  • Can a Passenger Vehicle Tire be Installed on a Trailer
  • You definitely should not put a passenger vehicle on a trailer as they are not designed for the vertical loads that trailers typically see. Whether that's illegal will be up to your local DOT, but most trailer shops with any integrity will straight up refuse to install a passenger vehicle tire on a trailer wheel since it's not safe and they wouldn't want the liability. All the tires we offer are safe for use on a trailer. If you can get me what size you need I can pick you out best option....

  • How to Pick Out 16 inch Trailer Tires for a Toy Hauler
  • The best way to pick out replacement tires for your trailer would be to determine what you current size is by checking out the trailer tire sidewall and then going with the highest Load Range tire we offer in that size. Most likely you have a 235/85R16 and the part # AM10501 would be your best option. This is a radial tire with a Load Range of F.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended ST235/85R16 Trailer Tire with Load Range G
  • Both the Provider ST235/85R16 # TTWPRG235R16 and the Westlake # LHWL410 Load Range G Tires referenced in your question represent premium options of this particular trailer tire size. These are both high quality radial tires with a maximum load of 4,400 pounds at 110 psi. Just keep in mind that when you upgrade the load capacity of your tires, you will still be limited by the axle capacity and capacities listed by your trailer manufacturer. I recommend going with the Westlake # LHWL410...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Tire Wear Concern with 18K-Rated Triple-Axle Toy Hauler 5th Wheel
  • Triple-axle trailers can show the effects of "scrubbing" especially on the rear axle since when the trailer turns the front axle wheels are the pivot point and the center and especially rear axles will be "pulled along for the ride", so to speak. This effect is unavoidable with triple-axle trailers. If you are finding that the outside edges of all tires are showing more wear than the center of the treads, this indicates that the tires may be under-inflated. Trailer tires should ALWAYS...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a Triple Axle Toy Hauler that Weighs 18,000 lbs
  • The tire I would recommend is the Taskmaster part # TTWTRTM2358016E. This is the same size tire as what you have of 235/80R16 and is a Load Range E with a capacity of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi. Which would give you a total of 21,120 lbs of tire capacity since you have a triple axle trailer. What is also really great about these tires is that they have an M speed rating which means they are rated for up to 81 mph. Most trailer tires are only rated for up to 65 mph so these would be an excellent...

  • 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...

  • 16 Inch Trailer Wheels Rated for at Least 3,960 Pounds at 110 PSI
  • Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20794 has the same 3,960 pound capacity at 110 psi as Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501. So if you are looking for an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern these two would be a great match. For a valve stem use # AM20906. You can also use white Mini Mod wheel # AM20789 or 8 spoke white wheel # TTW660865WS4.

  • 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.

  • Difference in Size Between 235/85-16 and 225/90-16 Trailer Tires
  • A 235/85R16 trailer tire such as the Goodyear Endurance # 724860519 or Karrier # AM10501 will be 31.7" in diameter and 9.3" wide while a 225/90-16 trailer tire - which is a size we do not carry - measures 31.9" in diameter and 8.9" wide. For a 235/85R16 trailer tire I strongly recommend going with the Goodyear Endurance # 724860519 because it has automotive-grade tread to maintain exceptional grip and is designed with a reinforced sidewall to help prevent blowouts. The Endurance also...

  • Replacement Wheels And Tire Recommendation For Late Model Airstream
  • The Dexstar Conventional Steel Wheel, part # AM20758 you referenced is a 16 X 6 inch rim and has a 6 on 5-1/2 wheel bolt pattern. We do offer 2 tires that would fit this wheel as well. The first I recommend is the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire , part # AM10501. This is a load range F radial tire that has a maximum load capacity of 3,960 lbs at 95 psi. For a load range E tire I recommend part # AM10295. it has a maximum capacity of 3,640 at 95 psi. The Baby Moon wheel...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Most Durable Trailer Tire for 18K Boat on Triple Axle Trailer with 235/80-16 Tires
  • For your 18,000lb boat with 235/80-16 sized tires on your triple axle trailer, I recommend the Taskmaster Load Range E Tire # TTWTRTM2358016E. This tire will fit 16x6 inch rims and have a weight rating of 3,520 per tire at 80psi. For your triple axle trailer that would be a total of 21,120lbs which is more than enough for your 18k boat. The nice thing about these tires are that they have a speed rating of M. This means that you can get a max highway speed of 81mph while most other...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...
