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.

Video Transcript for Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Tire Only - C20515C Review

Today, we're going to look at the Taskmaster Contender ST205/75R15 radial trailer tire in a load range C. Now, this radial tire that's constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords. It's great for highway use, also uses a nylon tread forming belt overlay to help prevent tread separation. This also has tread bars like you'll see in passenger car tires, basically what they are is if you look at the groove of the tread, you'll see a little raised area, looks like a speed bump and that's a 2/32 tread depth so it can you give you a quick visual indication of how your tread is wearing because when it wears down to that tread re-up 00:00:38 bars at 2/32, so when it gets down to there, that bar would be straight across so you can sort of watch your tread and as it goes down, you can get a good idea of how much is remaining. Now, this is a special trailer tire design which will couple the strength of a biased tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire. Now it is created specifically for trailers, it's not intended for use of any other vehicles. I am going to zoom in here just you can see a close up of the tread itself. Give you a good idea of what it looks like.

I'll go ahead and zoom back out. Now this tire does meet the DOT, Department of Transportation specifications and does exceed your Federal Motor Vehicle safety standards. Few specs on this: the wheels of this will fit on is a 15 inch by 5, 15 inch by 5 1/2, 15 inch by 6 and 15 inch by 6 1/2 rims. Now the tire size, which is stamped on the side wall, ST for Special Trailer, 205/75R15. The R does an 8th 00:01:35 so it is a radial design tire. Section width on this tire is 8 inches.

Overall diameter from the very bottom to the top when it's inflated is 27.1. Now this tire is a load range C which means it's a 6-ply rated tire. The maximum load capacity on this if it's used in a single tire configuration is 1,820 pounds at 50psi. If it's used in a dual tire application, it's 1,610 pounds at 50psi, but that should do it for the Taskmaster Contender ST205/75R15 radial trailer tire in a load range C.

The tires arrived in their own boxes, one box was crushed a little but no damage to tire, this was the carrier not etrailer. All tires have new dates And have been installed should work well for the trailer their on. They were a good price and a higher speed rating, just for a comfort Cushing. They all were a great help in answering questions and helping out with My purchase. Thanks 423336

I ordered tires for my RV using the Website, the tires were not available from the distribution centre at that time, Ricky ( e-Trailer Rep) called and gave me some options in a timely manner. Got the tires in my garage a week later than the original delivery date, I liked that they were individually boxed. Great job and thanks for being on top of my order. Exactly what I ordered - no issues. 549827


Comments
Tires were an excellent replacement from my original tires - no comparison. My trailer is 10,500 lbs and the wear rate looks good so far.

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Tires and Wheels

  • Can Different Load Range Tires Be Used Together On a 5th Wheel Trailer
    The tires on a trailer must all have the same load range rating as each load range requires a different psi rating. If you were to fill them all to the same psi then the weight capacity of said tire would be compromised. Therefore, you are going to need to choose a new tires that matches the load range of all other tires on the trailer. If you were to go against this then you would be at risk of a blowout due to increased heat buildup. If you can let me know what size tires you have...

  • What PSI Should Contender ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire C20515C Be Inflated to
    With trailer tires like the part # C20515C that you referenced you always have to run them at their maximum PSI to get their full capacity and prevent over-heating and failure. This tire needs to be inflated to 50 psi so that you get the full 1,820 psi rating.

  • Substituting Special Trailer Tire Size ST205/75-15 for ST205/65-15 on Single Axle Trailer
    Both trailer tire sizes you reference, ST205/65-15 and ST205/75-15 share the same width (8-inches) but have different overall diameters. So you will want to insure that your trailer wheel wells/fenders have enough clearance for the larger tire. At least 3-inches of available space above the tire surface is recommended to allow for normal suspension travel. The ST205/65-15 has a diameter of 25-1/2-inches; the ST205/75-15 has an overall diameter of just over 27-inches. So long as you have...

  • Can 15 Inch Diameter Wheel be Used on a 1964 Shasta Compact Trailer
    I would love to help but we don't have any fender clearance measurements on a 1964 Shasta Compact Trailer. Therefore, you will need to measure this for yourself. For starters, in order to switch to a 15" diameter trailer wheel you will need to make sure your trailer does not use a 4 on 4" bolt pattern as there are no 15" diameter trailer wheels we carry with this bolt pattern. If you don't know your bolt pattern you can use the attached help article to find this. Assuming the above is...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a Trailer with P215/75R15 Tires Currently
    The tire you have now is designed for passenger vehicle (that's what the P stands for at the beginning of the size), so that is why we don't have an exact match, but we can certainly help get you the correct tire you would need. The closest size in a trailer tire is the 205/75-15. The best priced tire we have in that size is the Contender part # C20515C which will work well for you. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended ST205/75R15 Sized Trailer Tire to Replace P205/65R15
    The Contender ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire with Load Range C # C20515C is a great replacement tire for you. The existing tires on your trailer are designed for use on passenger vehicles, so I highly recommend changing them out for trailer tires. Trailer tires have stiffer sidewalls which do a better job dealing with the vertical loads experienced by a trailer. The only issue you may run into is the clearance since the new tire is 27.1 inches in diameter and your old tire is 25.5...

  • Replacement Special Trailer Tires for 1986 ALJO Alliance Skyline Tandem Axle Travel Trailer
    Trailers often include tire sizing information on their primary VIN sticker or on another safety or warning sticker that could also have axle capacities listed. I checked online specs for various 1986 model year Aljo tandem-axle travel trailers but I could not find a confirmed tire size for any, most likely due to the age of the unit. Since you need to know both your tire size and Load Range (weight) rating to choose correct replacements, you can most easily pull this information from...

  • Why is There Excessive Wear on the Outside of Passenger Side Trailer Tire?
    When just one tire is wearing out, the suspension is often the problem and needs to be examined, the spindles in particular. Another possibility is that if your trailer has brakes, one assembly is locking up. Also remember to always keep your tires inflated to the maximum PSI listed on the tire's sidewall. If you are using bias tires, you may also want to consider switching to radials such as the Contender, # C20515C. Radial tires will offer more flex and ground contact, meaning better...

  • Replacement for 4 Ply 7.75-15 Trailer Tires
    The 7.75-15 tires you have now are a rather uncommon size that is not really used much today. For the sake of selection, it would be best to switch to a more modern size for which the closest available will be a 205/75-15. This new size will be about the same width as the 7.75-15 tires but will lower the trailer around 1/2". For a 205/75-15, I recommend the Contender /ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire part # C20515C which has an 81 mph speed rating and two year warranty.

  • How to Select Trailer Tires for 1964 Tag-a-Long Single Axle Travel Trailer
    Trailer tires, like trailer wheels and trailer brakes, should be selected to match the capacity of the trailer's axle. Axles usually have a sticker or plate on them that indicates their weight capacity. The trailer's main identification plate or sticker will usually indicate its gross weight limit (GVWR) and sometimes its axle capacity. Trailer tires of the appropriate size should be selected based on the amount of weight they need to support. Any given size tire may be offered in several...

  • What Tire Load Rating Is Needed For Tandem Axle Trailer With 7000 lb Capacity?
    For a tandem axle trailer rated for 7000 lbs, you can use either a Load Range C or D tire. Each axle will be rated for 3500 lbs so you need a tire that will carry 1/2 that capacity. That would make your minimum load range before limiting your system or 1750 lbs. The Contender ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 15" White Spoke Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C # AC15R45WSQ are rated for 1820 lbs at 50 psi and have a speed rating of up to 81 mph.

    I can certainly set you up with a 205/75-15 tire and a galvanized 15 x 6 rim with a 6 lug on 5-1/2 inch bolt circle, however our suppliers don't sell this as a combination and we don't have the facilities here to mount the tire to the wheel so we'd have to sell them separately and you would need to have the tires mounted to the wheels locally. You'd also need the # AM20903 valve stems. For a wheel, I'd go with the # AM20534. For a load range C radial tire, ST205/75-15 I'd recommend the...

    You definitely do not want passenger car tires on your car carrier and the proper tires will have a combined load rating that exceeds the GVWR of your 2002 Betterbuilt, which seems to be 8,500 lbs.
