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"

Video Transcript for Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - AC225R6SME Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Contender ST225 75R15 radial trailer tire with a 15 inch silver mod wheel. The tire and wheel assembly is ideal for boat trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers, and campers. The steel wheel with a modular design is sturdy and corrosion resistant. It goes through a three step finishing process including a zinc phosphate bath, an eco primer, and a silver powder coat finish on the outboard side. The inboard side is lightly e coated to reduce friction and provide rust resistance with less flaking. The unit also features improved torque retention or ITR technology which helps to keep the wheel securely in place on your trailer.

So it has the uncoated stud holes that are beveled to offer better clamp force retention. This radial tire is constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords. It's great for highway use, has nylon tread forming belt overlays to help prevent tread separation and it has the tread depth bars to offer a quick visual indication of tread wear.The special trailer tire design couples the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. This is created specifically for trailers, so it's not intended for use on other vehicles. It also comes with a two year platinum plus warranty which includes roadside assistance available 24 hours a day seven days a week.

Also includes other benefits and services. This assembly meets department of transportation specifications and it exceeds federal motor vehicle safety standards. The rim measures 15 inches in diameter by six inches wide. Bolt pattern is six on five and a half inches. Uses the wheel bolt size of a half inch by 20.

The wheel capacity is 2830 pounds. Pilot hole diameter is four point two five inches and it does not offer an offset. Again the tire size is ST225 75R15 gives us a section width of eight point seven eight inches. And an outer diameter when inflated of 28 point three one inches. When it comes to the tire capacity, we're looking at a load range E which gives it a ten ply rating.

The maximum load for the tire is 2830 pounds at 80 PSI and the maximum speed or speed rating is indicated by the letter M which stands for 81 miles per hour. That's gonna do it for today's look at the contender ST225 75R15 radial trailer tire with a 15 inch silver mod wheel.

Package arrived a day early and they even put the whole thing in a box instead of just taping cardboard over the sides of the wheel. Great deal. It was cheaper to buy an assembled tire and wheel from etrailer than it would be to buy just a tire locally and pay them to mount it on my old rusty wheel. Thanks! 548869

Ordered on a Friday afternoon and received it Tuesday afternoon. I thought that was fast. Easy to find, easy to order, and couldn’t beat the price for a tire already mounted on the rim.

Review from a similar Taskmaster Contender Silver Mod in Tires and Wheels


You guys are great. Got the tires/rims out here to Cheyenne in just four days. Also, you guys took a call from me when I saw the dates from a previous order, and thought the tires/rims wouldn't be here in time to haul horses for a bighorn sheep hunt. The date was 2013, but I didn't get that far. Apparently, the order was for a wiring harness I installed on my little roadster (Pontiac Solstice) so I could pull a motorcycle trailer, had been noted on the sheet. Anyway, you straightened me out, the tires came on time, and they are beautiful. Thanks again for working with me on this. The horses will arrive safe west of Cody at the trail head thanks to you. I'll send a picture of the ram when it is harvested. 422914

This trailer tire shipped and arrived quickly and was exactly what I ordered. I am extremely pleased with this tire and wheel. This will be used a spare for my small enclosed trailer. It is an identical match to the tires and wheels that are already on the trailer. I really like these because they have a higher speed rating than most 13" trailer tires. 382237

I ordered two new tires and new rims for my small utility trailer. The price is right, the quality is good and the customer service is great. The order was acknowledged super fast and the tires and wheels were shipped same day. A link was provided for tracking. The tires were received in 4 days from ship day. They fit perfectly as expected because the site offers a great deal of educational information on how to measure the various critical items to assure you order the right tire and wheel.

I was impressed with Ashley E’s technical knowledge when trying to figure out what parts I needed. This was an absolutely great experience. I would highly recommend getting your parts from this supplier. They shipped the product within hours of placing the order and the parts arrived within a few days. Ashley also provided great communications along the way. They will definitely be my “go to” source. 571641

I ordered at 9am Monday and they were on my door Tuesday at 11am. I'm in central Illinois. Wheels and tires were as described. The pics and video were an accurate representation of the wheels and tires. Etrailer has always been my go-to for online towing anything. Couldn't be happier! 445890

I think I got the wrong ones! When I looked on the tires I already have on my boat trailer it says 205/75/D14. What I got from you was 205/75/R14. Will they still work? 549461


Comments

The tire you ordered is a ST20575-14 radial tire in load range C. A load range C tire will have a 1760 lb per tire/ 3520 lb per axle capacity. The old tires you had were the same exact size, but in a slightly higher D load rating. A D-rated tire typically has a 2040 lb per tire/ 4080 lb per axle capacity. So, long story short, it the combined weight of your boat and trailer are less than the sum capacity of the tires 3520 for a single axle or 7040 for a tandem axle youll be perfectly fine.

Our high school club crew team needed new tires for our food trailer after suffering a massive blow out on I-95 north near Philadelphia. etrailer provided us with a cost effective solution, and two new tires mounted on the rims showed up within days. Free shipping was a huge plus. Thanks to a straight forward web site I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. 514968

Wheels matched perfectly and the tire hasn’t separated like the original. Needed a spare wheel anyway. Trailer had 2 ply radials stock and on the way home from picking it up one tire went flat. The plies separated at the side wall and you could see a bulge the size of a pencil. These 6 ply radials should and have already done better. Etrailer kept me informed about my order status with multiple emails and even a call. Great customer service. Will definitely use them in the future. 554619

Two out of three tires worked great on a couple of lengthy trips. Sadly I bought three for a project that took a couple of months to complete and only then discovered that one of the tire/rim combos was warped/wobbly. By that time I was past the point where it could be returned for full credit so I made that one a spare. Disappointing and I will not use etrailer again unless I can put the product to immediate use. The good ones are very good but the ratio is unacceptable. 495182

At this point I can only comment on the purchase process, which I ended up doing by phone since I had some additional questions. Cathy was a great service rep, got the order under way and answered my questions. The wheels arrived today - exactly when she said they would. The wheels are what I ordered, so I have to give full kudos so far. If I had one suggestion, it would be to offer wheel balancing on new wheel/tire purchases. That would save the customer an extra trip to the tire shop before installing... 444550


Comments

The wheels/tires were replacements for the original set on a used cargo trailer. They handled nicely and without issues for a -6000 mile trip to Baja and back, including some really sketchy roads. So I would say A+ all around for this purchase.

  • Center Cap for Contender ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15 Silver Mod Wheel # AC225R6SME

  • We do not carry any tires that are 16-1/2 inches to fit the 16-1/2 inch wheels like # 17-163-7. That is more commonly a Light Truck Tire for use on a motorhome and requires Light Truck which we don't carry in that size or Passenger tires which we do not carry at all. If you want to change out both wheels and tires on a trailer, then I do have a recommendation. The 16 inch size is far more popular than the 16.5 inch and will give you many more options but will also give you larger and...

  • Recommended 225/75R15 Size Tires with a Load Range of E for a Boat Trailer
  • Although we don't have any tires in the 235/75R15 size we do have the 225/75R15 size. If you are only looking for tires then I recommend the Goodyear Endurance # 724857519 which has a load rating E (2,830 lbs at 80 psi) and a speed rating of 87 mph. This is the best tire that we have to offer in this size. For a tire and wheel combo that has a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern I recommend the Contender # AC225R6SME. This has a load rating E (2,830 lbs at 80 psi) and a speed rating of 81 mph....

  • Does the Contender ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire AC225R6SME Need To Be Balanced
  • The Contender ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire part # AC225R6SME does come balanced via matching the heavy spot on the wheel with the light spot on the tire. They do not come machine balanced. However, machine balancing is not needed for trailer tires as this is only really needed for steer axles on a motor vehicle. The heavy and light spot balancing will be sufficient for use on a trailer so you don't have to worry about taking them to a shop to have them balanced.
