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.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Purchased a used 1101 military trailer and needed new tires and wheels to replace the 8 lug military tires and wheels. The new wheels worked perfectly and looked great. The tires lowered the overall height of the trailer in order to make it easier to tow on my truck. 368836

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Steel in Tires and Wheels


Great bargain from etrailer.com. Have not had the first problem. The rims have not rusted but I did spray wheels with a clear enamel before I installed them so do not know if that made a difference. The load range c is the way to go. I will never use anything less again. Never needed balancing and have run at 65 mph with no vibration. 599403


Comments
These tires have been flawless. Only had to add 5lbs of air in years time. Use on landscape trailer so not too many miles per week, but handle weight good.

I was very impressed with my experience ordering from etrailer.

Can't speak for the tire and rim as it will be used as a spare, but delivery was incredibly fast! Ordered it on Monday morning and it was at home waiting on me when I got home from work the very next day. Freaky fast! Will definitely order from them again. 95023

Review from a similar Kenda Karrier Steel in Tires and Wheels


Very good customer service. We ordered the wrong tires for our Camper online. I called but the orginal order had already shipped. They were able to get the right tires out and we received both orders the very next day. Took the wrong tires to UPS and shipped them back to them. We were going camping on Friday so having the quick turn around was fantastic. We ordered them on Wednday, received them on Thursday, put them on the camper so we were ready to go on Friday. Great job! We were frantic trieing to find the right tires for out camper and they came through with flying colors. I have told everyone I know that has a trailer or camper about the extra ordinary service. 713337

Great packaging, I liked how each wheel/tire was boxed. Needed 6 wheels and tires for a trailer I had purchased and these filled the bill nicely. Removed from the boxes and installed. No fooling around with getting wheels and tires separately. After a year of towing on these they have held up great with no issues. Thanks Etrailer! 705364

Good value/ best price. Quick delivery. Knowledgeable sales assoc. Do they have to be balanced? Im guessing yes and it would be nice if the website had some info about that. 614427


Comments
The tires are not balanced at the factory. You can have them balanced if you wish, but because trailers dont have a steering axle, its not as important that trailer tires be perfectly balanced as it is on a passenger vehicle. This is explained in more detail in the Q&A at the bottom of the product page.

  • Best Option to Upgrade from Bias Tire Size 7.50-16 to Radial Trailer Tire
    You are 100% correct! The closest match and best option to upgrade your 7.50-16 LT bias ply tires (like # AM10423), is going to be an ST235/85-16 radial tire, like the Kenda Karrier # AM32743B you were checking out. This tire is pre-mounted on a 16 inch diameter by 6 inch wide black mod wheel with a bolt pattern of 8 on 6-1/2 and a load range E (3,640 at 95 psi). You'll just want to make sure the bolt pattern matches and you're staying at or above the load range on your existing set-up. If...

  • Does the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Wheel Come Mounted and Balanced
    Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel # AM32743B undergoes a type of balancing by the manufacturer. Before the tires are mounted on the wheels the manufacturer lines up the light spot on the wheel with the heavy spot on the tire. After mounting the tires are not balanced beyond this. If you want the tire balanced further a tire shop would have to put the tires on a balancing machine and add weights as needed.

  • What are the Tire Pressure Ratings for ST235/85-16 Trailer Tires?
    The ST235/85-16 tires that we provide all have maximum psi ratings of 80, 95 or 110 dependent on the load rating. For example, the load-range G Provider Radial Trailer Tire, # TTWPRG235R16, has a maximum load rating of 4,080 lbs at 110 psi while the load-range E Kenda Karrier Radial Trailer Tire, # AM32743B, has a max load rating of 3,640 lbs at 80 psi. You should go with the maximum psi that your tire's manufacturer felt was appropriate for your tire.

  • Can I Upgrade Trailer Axle From 3,500 lb to 7,000 lb Axle and Keep 14 Wheels
    You can add a heavier axle to the trailer but the rest of the components of your trailer may not be rated for a higher weight capacity such as the suspension components and wheels. If you go from a 3,500 lb axle to a 7,000 lb axle like part # 8327834 you are not going to be able to keep your wheels because more than likely the bearings in the hubs that fit your wheels will not fit the spindle of the new axle. Also the wheels are more than likely not rated for the 7,000 lb trailer weight....

  • Does the Westlake ST235/85R16 Tire and Wheel Combo Offer a Wheel in Black
    I have an alternative solution for you. However, the Westlake wheel and tire combo does not come with a black mod rim. Kenda does offer the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel, # AM32743B. The Kenda Karrier tire has a 10 ply rating and a load range of E. The maximum load of the tire is 3,640 lbs at 80 psi. The Kenda wheel is a black mod wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The wheel has a weigh capacity of 3,750 lbs.
