Platinum Plus Warranty with Roadside Assistance

This tire-and-wheel assembly comes with a Platinum Plus warranty that includes complimentary roadside assistance for 2 years. If your trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change out the flat tire with your existing inflated spare tire. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to the roadside assistance, this warranty also includes other benefits and services.


Durable, Corrosion-Resistant PVD Finish Is Environmentally Friendly

PVD Finish

The highly corrosion-resistant finish on this steel wheel is applied through a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating process. This process occurs in a vacuum environment so that the aluminum coating binds to the steel at a molecular level. As a result, the coating is harder, more durable, and more wear resistant than chrome plating.


Compared to hexavalent and trivalent chrome plating methods, the PVD process creates a finish that withstands the effects of water, flying debris, and other elements for a longer period of time. The aluminum-coated wheels performed for more than 168 hours in salt spray tests, up to 500 hours in water immersion tests, and up to 40 lbs in impact-resistance tests. They won't pit or peel like chrome-plated wheels, and they resist the effects of any chemicals that may be on the road, such as magnesium chloride or salt during icy or snowy weather.


In addition, the PVD coating process is an eco-friendly alternative to chrome plating, which is extremely toxic to the environment.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

The automotive-rated center disc is raised and the stud holes are beveled and uncoated for better clamp force retention. This technology helps the wheel stay tight against your hub without the need for constant retightening.


Provider Radials with Automotive-Grade Tread

Provider Tread Vs Standard Tread

Unlike standard trailer tire tread, which has solid, continuous ribs, the automotive-grade tread on these Provider radials has ribs with breaks. These breaks allow water to run off to the sides. The Provider tread also has sipes. Siping is a process in which thin grooves (or sipes) are cut into the rubber of the tire. The grooves channel water away from the tread so that the tire makes better contact with the road. Both of these features greatly improve traction during wet, snowy, or icy conditions.


Provider radials are constructed with double polyester cords and double steel belts for increased durability and endurance. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation. Provider radials are bake tested - a process usually reserved for automotive tires - to ensure that the rubber holds up over time.


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"

Video Transcript for Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - A16RTK8BMPVD5 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the TaskMaster Provider ST235/80R16 radial trailer tire with the 16 inch steel mod wheel. The tire and the wheel assemblies are going to be ideal for boat trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers and campers. The sturdy steel wheel has a modular design; that's going to be these circular holes that go around the wheel. Gives it a really nice look. The coating on the wheel is PVD coating, that's "Physical Vapor Deposition." That process creates a sleek, black finish that is harder and more durable than chrome. It's a tough, wear-resistant coating that won't peel or pit. It's going to offer excellent corrosion resistance with a soft spray rating of more than 168 hours and the whole process is environmentally friendly, especially when compared to chrome plating process. This technique is going to bind the coating to the wheel at a molecular level. Now, that's going to be on the front and the back, but on the back you can see right here, are the lugholes, we don't have the coating.

That's because the wheel features ITR technology or "Improved Torque Retention" technology. That's going to help keep the wheel securely in place on your trailer. The studholes are doubled to offer better clamp force retention. The radial tire is constructed with double-steel belts and double polyester cords for a nice, long life. It's going to feature a nylon tread firming overlays to help prevent tread separation. We're going to have tread-depth bars, that way we can always get that quick visual indicator of tread wear.

The assembly meets the Department of Transportation specifications, it exceeds FMVSS requirements. When it comes to the rim, it's going to give us a diameter of 16 inches. It's going to give us a width of 6 inches. The bolt pattern on the unit, that's going to be eight on 6 1/2. The wheel lug size that would fit this is going to be a half inch x 20 or 9/16 inch x 18. Capacity on the wheel is 3,750 pounds.

The pilot hole diameter is going to measure 4.88 inches. This does offer a positive offset of 0.5. Again, the tire size is going to be ST235/80R16. It's going to offer a section width of 9.25 inches and the outer diameter from top to bottom when inflated is going to be 30.79 inches. Load range on this is E, which gives it a ten-ply rating. Maximum load on the tire is going to be 3,520 pounds at 80Psi.

Right here, it's going to say 124 120M, that 'M' is going to be our speed rating. And 'M' stands for '81 MPH'. That's going to do it for today's look at the TaskMaster Provider ST235/80R16.

Shipping was timely. I put this package on my trailer and headed out on a 8 hour trip to pick up an antique tractor. The entire trip back was in the rain. I had a close call with a car turning out on the highway in front of a semi truck and the trailer stayed behind me instead of skidding out of control. I have made several trips on my rock road and the tires and wheels still look great. 565642

Review from a similar Taskmaster Provider Black PVD in Tires and Wheels


Ordered five of these tire/wheel combo online and they were delivered relatively quickly straight to my driveway--overall not a bad process. Replaced all of the wheels on my 40' fifth-wheel (including the spare) after having three separate blowouts on the load range E tires that came with it from the factory (ridiculous). I was worried about fit since these are 235/85R16 and the factory wheels were 235/80R16. Turns out there was nothing to worry about--they look great and fit perfectly. Now I have the peace of mind that comes with a load range G wheel/tire and it didn't break the bank. The first long trip of the season is next week so I'll update this post if anything changes but I suspect things will go great. 383019

So its been about a year since I bought these tires and I couldnt be happier. Weve been on several trips and the peace of mind that comes with these tires was worth every penny. It is to the point where I dont think twice about it anymore I simply check the pressure and lug nut toques and then get on the road. I highly recommend them.

Review from a similar Taskmaster Provider Black PVD in Tires and Wheels


Bought 4 new wheels and tires for our horse trailer before a 1400 mile trip. They arrived on time, however 1 wheel was a 6 lug, instead of the 5 lug wheel that I ordered(mislabeled box). The company was very nice and apologetic, and offered to 2 day ship the correct wheel/tire combo...at my expense. After negotiating and finally agreeing on splitting shipping, the next day they called me to tell me the entire shipment they had was incorrect and could not get me the right wheel on time before we were leaving. I ended up having to spend more money out of pocket to get a new tire on one of the older wheels before we left, and they sent the new tire/wheel when it became available, which was prompt, but not when I needed it. Overall, it's a great wheel and tire combo, no problems so far after our trip and have hauled to another show since. The lady with the company handled everything promptly and as best as she could, so great customer service. If we hadn't gotten an incorrect wheel, I would've rated 5 stars. 527361

Review from a similar Taskmaster Provider Black PVD in Tires and Wheels


Like the wheels but one of the tires came with a manufacturing defect in the belts. As you spin the tire on the axle, the tread actually wobbles in and out almost 3/8" which causes a shaking of the entire trailer at speed. The other tire was just fine. 648097

The tires are covered by a 2 year warranty. Please call our Customer Service folks at 800-298-8924.
