Provider Radials

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.

I purchased these tires for our fifth wheel RV. We now have 1200 miles on the tires and I am very pleased in the way they handle the trailer and the road. I put the required amount of air stated on the RV which is less than the maximum rate on the tires. I also had the tires balanced when they were mounted on the wheel which I think helped give the trailer a smoother ride. The trailer came with Goodyear Endurance trailer tires in 2017 and with only 15,000 miles the tread wear was less than minimum for use. Needless to say we were very disappointed in the Goodyear tires. My wife and I like to travel and see this great country of ours so good equipment is a must have. I delayed this first review because I wanted to put some miles on the tires. I plan on reviewing again after we put 5,000 + miles. So far we are very satisfied. I do suggest that if you purchased a set of these tires, get them balance as well. It is customary not to balance trailer tires because they only "follow" the tow vehicle, but who knows?

Just recently did a cross country trip traveling through mountains and desert terrain. Tires did quite well and they show very little tire wear if any at all.

I run these on trailer with 2 8K axles. The 4,400 pounds per tire , 81 MPH rated tires are perfect! I can run the 75 and 80 MPH Texas speed limits with a full load and have a margin of safety left. I tow around 30,000 miles a year and have zero complaints from these tires. They wear well, and I've never had a blow out, bulge, tread separation or any type of tire failure.

I ordered 5 of these 14 ply G rated tires for my 28' enclosed autohauler trailer because I had one of my current E rated tires go flat and another on the same side blow out on my last trip. This is the same problem I have had on my 43' Toyhauler where I have had 4 blowouts with extensive damage to the side of my rig. After much research and reading reviews I decided to go with G rated tires instead of the Es that came with my trailer and RV. These support much more weight per tire than the E tires. After researching eTrailer had the best prices, free and very fast shipping, and the reviews for this particular tire when I purchased 7 of them for my RV was 122 out of 122, 5 stars! These tires are flat on top and very heavy duty! Just the difference I can see with the weight and tread are far superior to any E rated rounded tread tire. I highly recommend that anyone purchasing an RV or heavy duty trailer either insist on G rated tires before purchase or change them ASAP after your pruchase. Read the reviews and trust my own experience when I say YOU WILL HAVE A BLOWOUT...it is a matter of time and it WILL NOT be a convienient time, and you WILL most likely encounter damage to your investment! The only thing I forgot to order this time with my 5 new G rated tires is metal valve stems. These tires require 110 psi rather than 80 psi so you MUST HAVE the metal valve stems. It was a pain for me to find them in my local area when I could have just pruchased them from eTrailer like I did the last time for my RV. I am a happy customer of eTrailer and highly recommend thier products...and no they are not paying me to say that! LOL.

These tires have worked for me. They have a higher load rating than most and inflated properly wear well. The outstanding thing was etraile'rs shipping to Alaska in 3 days. I paid the ground shipping, 5-7 business days, which unfortunately adds $100. etrailer bumped it to expedited at no cost, got it out the same day (ordered that morning), and here in three days. That's as good as it gets. Thanks for making it easy.

As for quality these tires they look and feel awesome. Heading out on a long trip next week with the Solitude 5th wheel so I will see how they do. The weight of the Provider tire alone is 8 pounds heavier than my existing tire/wheel combo. As for etrailer they have great service and quick shipping. Will do business with them again!

These tires are brutes. My 5th whl rv weighs a little over 16k. Rides on 2 axles. In my opinion there really should have been 3 axles. Having said all that, I have refitted it with a new disk brake setup, oil bath wheel bearings and these tires. All from etrailer...thank you. These are the highest weight rated tires I have ever seen for this size. After a year (spring through fall) of use they are winners. When I stop for a break while traveling I usually shoot the tires and bearings with a temp gun. These tires are rated above the weight they carry and that’s saying something. My concern of blowing a tire on a hot summer day due to overloading are gone now. Couldn’t be more pleased!!

Troy, the service rep that I dealt with on my most recent order from etrailer.com, did a fantastic job helping me identify the exact parts I needed to replace the wheel bearings and brake assemblies on my 40 foot Big Horn 5th Wheel. I believe the prices were very reasonable and the service was faster than I expected. Thanks Troy, and I'll definitely recommend etrailer.com as a super place to get your trailer repair parts and accessories.

Over the years I’ve had many blow outs on standard E rated 10 ply tires on my trailers (regardless of brands ) With all the problems I decided to upgrade to “G” rated tires on my next 5th wheel. So in 2016 I purchased a new Keystone Avalanche (15K GVW) and upgraded to the “G” rated wheels and tires (please note that the “G’ rated tires require special wheels as the tire pressure is 110# and are speed rated to 80 MPH. I live in Arizona and hi speed and hot weather can destroy a standard trailer tire. The upgraded tries from Keystone are the same Provider tires available thru etrailer. So last year I replaced 2 of the original tires with well over 40K miles on them. (My bad as I didn’t rotate them as often as I should so they developed some edge wear). The other 2 are getting replaced this month and still have about 3/32 rubber (11/32 new) on them. Bottom line: No blowouts…And even wear now that they are being properly rotated. The piece of mind of having confidence in these tires takes a lot of stress out of our travels.

Tires are so clearly superior to anything available at local tire stores. These tires are so much heavier, thicker, etc. put 1200 hundred miles on them so far. Monitoring them with tireminder. So far they have been great. Not any old tire shop can mount these. Discount Tire was able to do so. Knowledge and service of etrailer rep was awesome. You can't get this service or product anywhere else in retail locations. So for a high quality trailer tire with fast delivery and great service then etrailer.com is the place.

So far so good no issues. These are on 38' 5th wheel toyhauler 21,000 lbs fully loaded.The trailer pulls good with these tires seems to have less swaying over the last set of tires i had.There a year old and still look great probably have 3000 miles on them now.

I have only put 1K miles on them but what a improvement with the tracking of the 5th wheel. The extra heavy sidewall and high air pressure (110psi) allows for NO tire roll. Our 5th wheel weighs in at 13.5K lbs 30 ft long.

After 2 1/2 years of painful experience with a prominent brand of tires on our fifth wheel, torn up sides and skirts and having to change tires on Interstate Highways... If you have a 2012-2013 Keystone Montana or similar, you no doubt know which piece of garbage I am talking about. (Does Marathon ring any bell?) Having gone through 5 of 8 tires in 2 years, I bought 4 of these G rated Taskmaster Providers for our fifth wheel. In my case I had 6 inch wheels, so we also went to 6.5 inch wheels as specified by the tire specs. Had them balanced and there are now 5,000+ miles on them, performing flawlessly and tread looks like new. This is the solution, folks!

I replaced some load range E tires that were on my 40' fifth wheel. I was nervous every time I pulled it with the originals. The Providers are a far superior tire to my original tires and have shown no signs of wear. I have pulled the RV up and down many dirt and gravel roads, some much worse than others, and I can say they will give you peace of mind if you're thinking of replacing yours. The guys at the local tire shop were super impressed when they swapped them out, asking where I purchased and what not. When my RV is loaded its 20,000# with just two axles and these tires hardly squat at all. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Just got the tires mounted yesterday and was shocked as to how much weight it took to balance these tires. 2 took 15.5 ounces and 2 took 13 ounces. Almost a pound! I have had 37" monster murders that only took 5 ounces. It leads me to believe the quality control during manufacture is very marginal. I hope they stand up to the use they are needed for but am not optimistic. I am glad I had them balanced as they would have damaged the trailer with the vibration they would have induced. We will see how they perform.


Comments
Russell,Thank you for your review. Trailer tires do not have to be perfectly balanced like passenger car tires do because trailers do not have steering capabilities. Most people do not feel a difference in the ride between balanced or unbalanced tires. Our wheel and tire combos come from the manufacturer with the heavy side of the tire matched with the light side of a wheel to sort of balance them. Although, if you are purchasing a tire and having a shop put it on your own existing wheel then it would not hurt to ask the shop to balance them.

Good morning 10-24-2017 I was having second thoughts before buying these tires since I would go through trailer tires. I own a 14 foot PJ dump trailer that always loaded I own a concrete company in Ca. since I seen all the good reviews I bought them and ( REALLY ) put them to the test before I would give a review. I bought them end of april 2017, 6 months later of punishment on the tires I'am a firm believer these tires are 10 Stars. Highly Recommend Provider Tires. THANK YOU Yahweh Concrete.

I apologise for taking so long to write a review. Haven't had tires put on the 5th wheel yet. They seem to be really nice tires, but not to impressed that they are from China. I do however like all the reviews I've read on them and looking forward to having them mounted after my new axles are installed. Also impressed with the weight load of these tires. Have to give it just 3 stars for now. Will update review once I get on the road

  • Will Bias or Radial Tires Provide Smoother Ride for Stock Trailer
    Since radial tires are more for highway use and bias tires have sidewalls that are more stiff for off-road use the Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # TTWPRG235R16 is going to give you a much smoother ride quality than the Kenda Light Truck Tire K391M # AM10430.

  • 2014 Heartland Torque 325 Toy Hauler Tire Recommendation ST235/80R16
    The tire I would recommend for you is the part # TTWPRG235R16 that you referenced. The reason is because this tire has more than enouch capacity as it is a Load Range G and because unlike other trailer tires this once has a speed rating of 81 mph. Most trailer tires are only rated for 65 which if you exceed the rating you end up causing the tire to heat up and potentially fail. This is a big reason for tire failure. Your wheels have the same psi rating as this tire at 110 psi so you...

    I have a great solution for you. The Taskmaster ST175/80R13 Radial Trailer Tire, part # TTWTRTM1758013C is rated for up to 87 mph as it has an M speed rating. Most trailer tires are only rated for 65 mph so this is a great option for you. Be sure to keep the tire inflated to it's 50 psi max so that you don't cause heat to build up which is a common cause for tire failure.

    If you want Load Range G tires on your trailer with 16 inch diameter wheels you need to go to the size 235/85R16 like the part # TTWPRG235R16 which is the Load Range you want and has a weight capacity of 4,080 lbs at 110 psi and a speed rating of 81 mph. In the size ST235/80 R16 we do not have anything rated high enough. I also recommend highly that you match all of your tires to the size you need.

  • Lug Nut Torque for a Trailer Wheel
    90-120 ft lbs of torque is probably about right for your trailer rims. If you check out the lug nut torque chart that I attached you will see that nearly all of the torque specs are that and higher.

  • Understanding Trailer Wheel Bolt Patterns and Trailer Tire Weight and Speed Ratings
    We can help you sort out trailer wheel bolt patterns and tire load ranges for your 26-foot travel trailer that weighs between 5200- and 6200-lbs. I linked our main page for trailer wheels and tires as well as a couple of related articles that you'll find helpful. The wheel/tire page has filters you can click on to sort the displayed products. There are many trailer wheel bolt patterns (we offer wheels in more than 10 wheel bolt patterns!) but it is easy to confirm which you have. Just...

  • Why Do Different Tires Have Different PSI Ratings And How Does This Impact Wheels/Rims
    The wheels/rims are somewhat impacted by PSI ratings but are mostly limited by maximum weight capacity and are designed to fit particular bolt patterns. For example, the Aluminum Split Spoke Wheel by HWT, Item # AM22658HWT, is designed for 16 inch tires, has a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern, and a maximum capacity of 3,580-lbs. Where a rim is impacted by PSI ratings is by the maximum PSI rating of a rim's valve stem. If you need a higher PSI rating then you can upgrade to a higher...

  • 16 inch Trailer Wheel that Can Handle Weight and PSI Capacity of Load Range G Tire
    Yes, we have 16 inch by 6 inch trailer wheels that have weight and psi capacity for a Load Range G trailer tire like the part # TTWPRG235R16 which is rated for 110 psi and 4,400 lbs with the wheel part # F2513166044. This has the same 4,400 lb weight capacity and can easily handle 110 psi as well. We don't typically list the psi rating for the wheels as normally it's just the valve stem that limits the psi as the wheels are normally capable of much more than needed.

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a 2015 Voltage 3805 Toy Hauler
    ST rated trailer tires typically end up being too old before they are worn out. Typically around 5 years is when people need to replace them. The mileage for trailer tires is usually around 5-12,000 miles, but what usually get the tire is the age before wear. Here is why an ST rated tire is better than an LT for trailer use: "ST" tires feature materials and construction to meet the higher load requirements and demands of trailering. The polyester cords are bigger than they would...

  • Is it Okay for PSI Rating of Tire to Increase from 110 to 130 During Travel
    I spoke to our tire guy here at etrailer and he said that as long as you are staying within the limits of the tire then the psi increasing by 22 isn't a big deal. For example, the Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # TTWPRG235R16 has a load range of G (4,400 lbs at 110 psi for singles or 3,860 lbs at 110 psi for duals) and a speed rating of 81 mph. When calculating the max tire weight capacity you simply add the weight capacity of each tire together so if you are using 4 of these...

  • How to Find the Load Range or Weight Capacity for Wheels and Tires
    On the back side of your aluminum wheels, either on one of the spokes or near the bolt pattern, there will be a weight rating for your wheel stamped somewhere. You might have to clean it really well to be able to see it, but it will be on the reverse side of the wheel. One thing you might want to look out for is that once in a while an aluminum wheel might be stamped for two different bolt patterns, for instance, it might have a rating stamped for a 5 bolt pattern AND a different rating...

  • Best ST235/80R16 Sized Tires for Highway Speeds
    I recommend the Taskmaster Provider # TTWPRG235R16. This is a ST235/80R16 sized tire with a speed rating M which is a maximum of 81 mph. It has a load range G with a max load of 4,080 pounds at 110 psi. Using a monitoring system is a great practice since you always want to inflate your trailer tires to their maximum psi when the tires are cold. You'll also need metal valve stems if you don't already have them. The Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 is rated for over 100 psi.
