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.


Taskmaster Radials

Taskmaster radials have 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. Taskmaster radials are bake tested - a process usually reserved for automotive tires - to ensure that the rubber holds up over time.


Radial tire vs bias tire graphic

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


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 - AT12R45SM Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking at look at the Taskmaster 4.80 x 12 Radial Trailer Tire with a 12" Silver Mod Wheel. The tire and wheel assembly is ideal for boat trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers, and campers. Does feature that nice steel wheel with a modular design. It's very sturdy and corrosion resistant. The wheel goes through a three-step finishing process including a zinc phosphate bath, an e-coat primer, and then a silver powder coated finish here on the outboard side.It does feature improved torque retention technology. That helps to keep the wheel securely in place on your trailer.

Now, the radial tire is constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords for a long life, makes it great for highway use. It features the nylon tread-firming belt overlays to help prevent tread separation. It's got the tread depth bars to offer quick visual indicator of tread wear, and the tire's been bake tested to ensure that the rubber holds over time.This is covered with a Two-Year Platinum Plus warranty, which includes emergency tire change service as well as other benefits. The assembly does meet Department of Transportation specifications and exceeds Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.When it comes to the dimensions of the wheel, it's a 12" diameter wheel and the width of the wheel is 4" wide. Bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2" and it uses a wheel bolt size of a 1/2" x 20.

The wheel capacity is 1,100 pounds. Pilot hole diameter is 2.95" and it does not offer an offset. When it comes to the tire, it's printed right here on the outer wall of the tire. This is a 4.80R12 and the section width is 4.84", and the outer diameter when properly inflated top to bottom is 20.63".When it comes to the tire capacity, it's a load range C, which gives it a 6 ply rating. Maximum load of the tire is 990 pounds at 90 PSI, and this does have a speed rating on it, which is indicated by a letter.

So, right here when it says load range C, if you look right above there, it has the max speed, which it says 80M. 80 is the load index, M is the speed rating, and M stands for 81 miles per hour. Also has the metal valve stem on it as well, comes with the cap.That's going to do it for today's look at the Taskmaster 4.80 x 12 Radial Trailer Tire with a 12" Silver Mod Wheel.

I just received my 2 tires and wheels for my boat trailer. It only took about 48 hours total from the time I ordered them until they arrived. I plan to install them tomorrow if the weather will cooperate. I am hoping that they will last better than the bias tires that they are replacing. They look great! 606982

Just received my new wheels with tires mounted for my jon boat trailer. Price was the best I could find and shipping was extremely fast, got them the next day. They appear to be excellent quality. Just mounted them last night so haven’t had a chance to see how they run. My only suggestion would be to have included instructions for the wheel torque specs. Had to look them up online as customer service didn’t have any information. 481947

Service was very good. Tires and wheels were received quickly. The boat was trailered 1000 miles at 70 mph without a problem. I’m very satisfied with these tires. 569227

Excellent tire. Been going through the break in schedule with it and giving it ever increasing loads to play around with. This is a 12" wheel and a 21" tire, rated for 81 mph at 90psi. So far its carried a 100 pound box, and a giant sheet of plywood. Done great. Its going to California from Colorado soon so I will get you folks a review after the 1300 miles of interstate. Included is picture of tires from just after I pulled them from the box. Etrailer did an excellent job at packaging these tire assemblies. Will purchase from etrailer again. 498320

Not generally a fan of “cheap” tires and firmly believe you get what you pay for, particularly car and truck tires. Took a gamble as these appear to be decent tires and very good wheels for an excellent price. My fears were affirmed with a sidewall bulge on one tire on the first day of use. Etrailer made it right and quickly got me a replacement. The replacement and the original good tire are holding up fine. Despite my issue, the tires track true and smooth and were a great price. Will change my review to five stars if these tires survive my upcoming Northern GA to Key West trip without issue. As always, five stars for etrailer! 511080

I was looking for smaller radial boat tires and I found etrailer. I ordered this tire/rim combo because they looked nice and for a great price. They shipped quickly and we're actually in a box, which was nice. I installed them immediately. They run down the road great and I have peace of mind while cruising on the freeway. 646699

I am converting a landscape/utility trailer to be a camping trailer for us that has been sitting in my side yard for several years. I didn't want to rely on the old tires driving on the highway with a load, so I ordered these. They are tires, the do tire things. I haven't driven on them yet, but the biggest surprise to me was the color. These are not galvanized wheels. These look to be powder coated or painted a medium grey. Not that the trailer is a beauty contestant, but the grey looks so much better with the rest of the setup than white would have. 3 sets were put in a big box that was securely stapled (no tape!) shut. The packaging held up well in transit (short of the deliverer putting the heavy box against my front glass door which prevented me from opening it). etrailer has always served me well for my towing/trailer needs. 539031

Upsized from an 8" wheel to a 12" wheel for my mini kayak trailer. At the same time upgraded from bias to radial. Trailer rides and seems to track better.

I've had these tires on my boat trailer (14 foot v-hull fishing boat) for about one year and they work great. The trailer tracks and rides very smooth, no issues. They keep pressure pretty well too; I haven't needed to fill them really at all. I would recommend these. 726258

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Tires and Wheels

Do you have a question about this Tires and Wheel?


  • Trailer Wheel and Tire Recommendation for Size 4.80-12 with Higher Speed Rating
  • Whenever available I always recommend going with trailer tires that are rated for higher than 65 mph. It's too easy to accidentally go faster than 65 on the highway even when pulling a trailer so it's always a good idea to have some cushion there. So for your tire size of 4.8R12 I recommend the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 12" Silver Mod Wheel # AT12R45SM. This has the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you need as well as has a Load Range C tire that has an 81 mph speed rating....
    view full answer...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation Taller than Size 5.70-8
  • The most similar size to your 5.70-8 tire size that has the diameter you are looking for would be the 4.80-12 which is 20.5 inches in diameter like the part # AT12R45SM for if you have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern or # AM30630 for if you have a 4 bolt wheel pattern. The section width of these tires is right at 4.9 inches.

  • Increasing Trailer Tire Size for Better Load Capacity & Higher Speed Rating
  • You may simply need to choose new tires in the same size but ones that have a higher weight capacity and/or a higher speed rating. For instance, the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire with Silver Mod Wheel # AT12R45SM has a Load Range C weight rating and a speed rating of M, meaning it is rated for up to 81-mph. Switching to a larger size of trailer tire is sometimes possible. You need to have enough vertical clearance within the fenders/wheel wells and enough lateral clearance between...

  • Is a 4.80 x 12 Wheel and Tire Combo Available?
  • We do carry wheel and tire combinations with 4.80 x 12 tires. For highway use I recommend going with radial tires and for that you have three options in terms of wheel style. Each of these tire and wheels have a load rating of C with a max capacity of 990 lbs at 90 psi, 12" diameter x 4" wide wheel dimensions and a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern (please refer to the linked help article on determining bolt pattern if you are unsure of what you have).

  • Max Highway Speed Rating for 4.80-12 Tires
  • The Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range B # AM30590 have a max speed of 65 mph. When trailer tires are not speed rated with a letter, the default is 65 mph max. I've attached an article to assist. If you want a speed rating higher, then for that tire size I recommend the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 12" Silver Mod Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C # AT12R45SM or # AT12R45WS. These are rated for speeds up to 81 mph. If...

  • Does Larger Size Trailer Tire Need to be Used for Highway Use
  • As long as you there is room inside your fenders the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30850 will work just fine for your trip. It isn't as much about the size of the tire as it is just making sure they aren't overloaded and the max speed rating isn't exceeded. This combo has a load range C (1,045 lbs at 80 psi) and a 65 mph speed rating. The bigger tire (5.30-12) is about 1-1/2" larger in diameter and 1" wider than your current tires. Make sure that you will...

  • How to Select Size, Load Rating and Speed Rating for Special Trailer Tires on Pontoon Boat Trailer
  • 12-inch trailer tires are in much wider use than 10-inch tires but the tire size in itself is not really what matters, apart from them fitting properly inside the fenders or wheel wells. What is most important in selecting trailer wheels/tires is having ones with the appropriate weight load range rating for the actual loaded weight of the trailer with the boat, and having tires that are rated for your typical driving speed. Some trailer tires are rated only to 65-mph but others can be rated...

  • Upgrading the carpeted bunks on your CE Smith Boat Trailer to roller bunks like the CE Smith # CE27710 is a great way to upgrade the trailer.

  • How To Find Out How Much Can Be Loaded On a 4x8 Utility Trailer
  • The only way to determine how much you can load on a trailer is to look for the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), which is usually on a plaque near the tongue. This figure will represent the most the trailer can weigh while fully loaded. Therefore, the weight of the trailer plus the weight of your motorcycle cannot exceed that of the trailer's GVWR. The 8" load range C tires that you have are likely rated between a 745 lbs to 935 lbs (per tire). These tires accompanied with the 2,000...

The Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel - 12" x 4" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Chrome # AM20152 will be lighter at just 9 lbs and will be the lightest wheel we currently carry. For your tire, the Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80-12 - Load Range B # AM10060 weighs just 9 lbs but will only allow speeds up to 65 mph. If you want to go 70 mph, then I recommend bumping up...

  • Does Pilot Hole Size Matter When Replacing 4.8-12 Size Tire and Wheel for Boat Trailer
  • The pilot hole diameter of a wheel is only important when dealing with hub centric wheels, which are more typically found on passenger vehicles. Standard trailer wheels are centered on the lugs, so as long as you match up the bolt pattern, the wheels will fit and operate correctly, regardless of the pilot hole size. To replace the 4.8-12 size tire and wheels on your boat trailer, I recommend going with the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 12 Inch Silver Mod Wheel # AT12R45SM....

  • Axle Solution for Ironton 5x8 Trailer with Higher Speed Rating
  • Ironton does require that their trailers like the 5 by 8 that you have stay under 45 mph. This is most likely related to the hubs that are on the trailer and the tires but it's hard to say for sure since we are not affiliated with them. If you went with the Timbren Axle Less kit part # A20RS545 that you referenced and a set of tires/wheels with a higher speed rating though you would likely have the ability to go faster.

This is a radial tire which is preferred over the other options and it also has a speed rating of 81 mph whereas most trailer tires are only rated for 65 mph. I attached a review video for this wheel and tire combo for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Tire and Wheel Replacement for Trailer with Size 4.80-12
  • You'll want the size 4.80-12 since that is what is listed on your tire sidewall. The other size mentioned basically is another way of stating the same size. For a wheel an tire in this size I recommend the Taskmaster Wheel and Tire # AT12R45SM which is a radial tire in this size with a higher speed rating of 81 mph on a steel wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern (which you most likely have). It has a great weight capacity of 990 lbs at 90 psi as well.
