Bias Tires vs. Radial Tires

Bias vs. radial tire graphic

Bias ply tires are designed for off-road or agricultural applications. They are built with thick, durable nylon cords that are positioned at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the direction of travel. The layers alternate in a crisscross pattern, making the sidewalls stiffer so that the entire tire is able to flex easily. As a result, the tire provides a smooth ride and improved handling when trailering on uneven surfaces.

I recently purchased two Loadstar ST185/80D13 Load Range D Bias trailer Tires. This was a difficult item to find looking locally, online, or even calling several manufacturers and distribution centers. These tires are for our family's 10 yr old popup camper which on the last trip had a blow out and needed to have them replaced before our summer trip. I found them on etrailer at a fair price and made the purchase late one evening. By morning I had received two emails notifying me that the product had shipped and that shipping had been upgraded to 3 day with no extra cost. The tires arrived on time at my parents home where the camper was stored and the tires were installed by a local installer that afternoon. Thanks etrailer for making our summer camping trip possible and hope others find your services as beneficial as we did. Happy Trails! 43492

I placed my order on Friday and had my tires by Tuesday. Excellent customer service and no shipping fees to boot. Easy ordering, no hassle and they kept me informed all along the way of where my tires where. I have not worked with this company before, but will in the future when there is another need. I would recommend etrailer to friends and family. Totally satisfied customer 127434


Comments
I ordered my tires on a weekday and poof they appeared within a day or two. Awesome customer service. I ordered 2 replacement tires and shortly thereafter I sold my popup to my brother who drove it from North Carolina down to the Keys where he lives - he has made multiple trips throughout Florida and has not had any problems at all with the tires and wanted to make sure he knew where I purchased them when it time to replace. Will definitely be a repeat customer. These people do an awesome job!

We put these tires on our 23 ft. camp trailer. They have been one of our best investments! Even after sitting all winter, we did not have to add any air when getting the camper ready for summer camping season! Definitely an improvement over the D rated tires that came with the camper originally! 416955

I have never ordered tires online or for a trailer before this experience. They had exactly the tire that I wanted in the correct size that I wanted. That made it very simple to just call them up and order. We received the tires in 3 business days. We have not taken a trip on these tires yet but I expect them to be just fine when we do. If you are looking to replace original tires for your camping trailer, this is the place to look first. I will return here for future trailer needs. 136606


Comments
Only took one trip on them last summer. One tire went flatlow sitting over the winter. We have kept it aired up during the spring, not sure if this is due to the tire or how they were installed on the trailer. never had that happen on the original tires in 6 years. So a little worried about what might happen on the one trip we plan to take this summer. any advice?

The problem you are describing may be associated with how the wheel was installed on your existing rim, or potentially with the valve stem. If the tire is no seated properly on the wheel, and if the valve stem is bad, or does not have a good seal, you may experience slow air leaks overtime.

This is the first time I have ordered trailer tires from Etrailer and I did not know what to expect with regard to service and product quality. The last pair of tires I had on my pontoon boat trailer were 185/80R13 Marathon tires but according to the specifications, the Etrailer 185/80R13 tires had a better load rating and higher safe speed rating than my old Marathon tires. My Etraier tires also have a 2/2018 date of manufacturing which was also a plus. 562575

Great ... I sold my pontoon boat recently but the tires exceeded my expectations. I now go to Etrailer for tire recommendation and technical advise. I recently bought a spare tire and rim for my new Venture trailer from Etrailer. Thanks, PW

I bought these Loadstar tires for use on my 17-foot hybrid camper. The new tires arrived from etrailer a day earlier than expected and I was able to get them mounted the same day. I've only put about 20 miles on the tires (testing them in my local area before going OTR), but they feel very solid and ride well. These tires are very well reviewed, and etrailer has them priced better than anywhere. I'm sure to follow up on this review in time. Thanks etrailer! 636125

I can't say enough good things about etrailer. They had exactly the same brand and model of tire that originally came on my camping trailer. Those tires lasted 14 years according to the tire shop that mounted the new one. So, they clearly carry quality. What always amazes me is the speed of shipping. I ordered this tire on a Friday at 12:45 PM. I got an email at 9:15 PM that day saying it had shipped. It arrived at my door before 9:30 AM on Monday. Now that is great service! Love the product selection, all the helpful information, and certainly the speedy service. They've certainly set the bar very high for any competition. 766777

I’ve had these tires for about one year and they have been an excellent replacement for the last tires on my 2007 Fleetwood Bayside pop-up camper. We just finished a round trip from Tampa, FL to Cranberry, PA and the tires performed flawlessly. I will buy these tires again. 678528

Tires arrived on time and nicely packaged. They look like a nice set of trailer tires, time will tell how they hold up but for now things are great. And cheaper than I could have got them at my local tire super store. 667854

by:

I bought these tires to put on my travel trailer. The outside and inside treads are wearing faster than the 3 center treads. I always check the pressure before getting on the road and both tires are inflated to 65 pounds. I only have 18 thousand miles on them. I'm very disappointed in the wear pattern. 667265


Comments
Tire treads that are worn at the edges would typically indicate an under inflated tire. Have you tired a different tire gauge in order to confirm your readings? If the pressure is fine, a bent axle or worn suspension parts could certainly cause the wear you describe, as well. The tires are covered by a 2 year warranty. Please call our Customer Service folks at 800-298-8924 for details.

  • Best Trailer Tire for Rockwood Camper with Tire Size 185/80-13
    If your 2016 Rockwood Aframe camper A192HW has a tire size of 185/80-13 then the best tire we have as a replacement would be the Kenda part # AM10208 which is the size you need but it's a radial and the one you referenced is a bias ply.

  • Replacement Tire Recommendation for an ST185/80R13 Size Tire on a Travel Trailer
    The load range D on the Loadstar ST185/80D13 # AM1ST79 actually gives you a higher weight rating than the C load range. For this size D is 1,710 lbs at 65 psi while C is 1,480 lbs at 50 psi. It doesn't hurt to have a tire that is rated for more weight and the benefit to this tire is that it has a max speed rating of 81 mph. If you need a wheel as well then I recommend part # AM3S331 as this is the same tire but it comes with a white wheel that has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. Bias tires,...

  • What is the Right Tire Size for a 1998 Coleman Destiny Mesa Pop-up Camper
    The 1998 Coleman Destiny Mesa uses 13 inch tires. What I could not find was if it takes the more common 175/80-13 or the wider but much less common 185/80-13. This information could be on the trailer's ID tag. If it were me I would go with 175/80-13 tires such as # TTWTRTM1758013C, This tire is rated for 1,360 pounds at 50 psi. I have linked a video review of it for you. Assuming that the tire size that is on the trailer now is correct you could read the size off of the sidewall.

    Yes, assuming you have the clearance between the tire tread and underside of the fender. You'll want at least 3 to 4 inches to allow for the trailer to go over bumps in the road. However, if you plan to keep the 13 inch rim there isn't much taller you can go. The 185/80D13 sized tire # AM1ST79 is only about 0.3 inches larger in diameter compared to what you have now.
