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.


Corrosion-Resistant Finish

The steel wheel goes through a 3-step finishing process that makes it both attractive and corrosion resistant. The wheel is first submerged in a zinc phosphate bath to ensure good paint adhesion. It is then e-coated with an acrylic primer base and the outboard side is finished with baked-on DuPont powder paint. The light e-coat on the inboard side of the wheel reduces friction between the wheel and your hub and eliminates the flaking that can occur with a heavily applied paint finish.


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.


Standard Trailer Tire Tread

Contender Tire Tread

The standard tread on these tires has solid, continuous ribs, and it has very few sipes (or thin grooves) cut into the rubber. These tires are designed for use on trailers, so they don't require the level of traction that would be needed on a vehicle that is braking or steering.


Contender radials have double polyester cords and double steel belts. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation.


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"

Product arrived quickly and was exactly as described. I cannot yet speak to durability or performance issues but I have no reason to expect poor performance as a trailer tire. Price point can't be beat on a tire/wheel combo. 553246

Review from a similar Contender White Spoke in Trailer Tires and Wheels


This is the third or fourth set of wheels/tires I have purchased from etrailer.com along with other items. They are so great to deal with. I ordered these late Thursday and they arrived noon on Monday - wow ! etrailer is straight forward. They told me the wheel/tire assemblies are roughly balanced. They place the heavy tire spot opposite the heavy wheel spot. So if you want a perfectly balanced set you should go to your nearest tire shop. Worth the effort since the etrailer prices are so good. The tire shop said they were only slightly out of balance. I went up a size from R14 to R15 and fatter profile 215 to 225. added almost 700 pounds of extra safety margin, meaning the tires are lightly loaded. obvious to the eye. Thanks etrailer. I do not like operating tires near capacity! Follow the standard recommendation: Change your trailer tires at 12,000 miles even though they look new. 564538


Comments
Because trailer tires dont have a steer or drive axle, its nowhere near as crucial for a trailer tire to be perfectly balanced as it would be for a passenger vehicle tire. Regardless of the milage theyve seen, its a good idea to consider replacing trailer tires around the 5 year mark as continued exposure to UV radiation from sunlight is harmful to the compounds used in the manufacture of tires.

Review from a similar Contender White Spoke in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Installed these on a 1996 Jayco 30' Travel Trailer. The tires look great and perform well. It originally cam with Steel Belt Radials but I change to Bias. They did not perform well and only kept on for a short time before going back to these. They ride well and wouldn't know the trailer is behind. Well pleased!! 439009

Tires & wheels arrived quickly and exactly as described. Wonderful service and will use again when I replace tires & wheels on my boat trailer. Only issue I had was that the powder coated white paint popped off around one of the lug nuts and I tightened it down. 695820

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • What is the Speed Rating of the Taskmaster Contender Radial Tire and Wheel Combo
    The Taskmaster Contender ST235/80R16 Radial Tire w/ White Wheel, # AC16R6WS, has a M speed rating at 81 mph. The Taskmaster tire and wheel combo is a great tire choice for your trailer. The radial design will give you better tread to pavement contact and run cooler than other bias tire designs. This tire and wheel combo has a load range of E with a 10-ply rating. The maximum load capacity at 80psi is 3,520 lbs. This tire-and-wheel assembly comes with a Platinum Plus warranty...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for 6k Axles on Equipment Trailer
    So in terms of weight capacity you have to go with the tire size 235/80-16 since you need over a 3k capacity per wheel/tire. That size though has an overall diameter of 30.9 inches. So for the bolt pattern you need best option is the Taskmaster part # AC16R6WS. It has a capacity of 3,520-lb max load at 80 psi, a speed rating of 81 mph and a 2 year roadside program.

  • Recommended Rim for a 245/75 R16 Light Truck Tire
    We have wheels that work for you but the Dexstar # AM20741 isn't wide enough for your tires. A 245/75 R16 size tire needs at least a 6-1/2 inch wide rim. We carry a few 16 inch wheels that are that wide, such as # AM22657. You may be better off going with a 235/80 R16, like # AC16R6WS, which is basically the same diameter as the 245/75 R16 size. You will also have the benefit of a trailer tire with a thicker sidewall instead of the LT truck tires. Some LT tires are rated for trailer...

  • Replacement Brake Hub and Drum For Dexter 8-174 With Traditional Bolt Pattern
    The Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 6,000-lb and 7,000-lb Axles - 12" - 5 Spoke Utility # 8-174-5UC3 is the direct replacement hub. We don't have any wheels that are a fit for this utility bolt pattern. My recommendation for you is to use the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum for 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb Axles - 12" Diameter - 6 on 5-1/2 # 42656 which will fit your spindles perfectly as well as your brake assemblies. Then you can use any 15 or 16 inch wheels with the matching bolt...
