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 Westlake Tires and Wheels - Tire Only - LHWL097 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Westlake 215/75R17.5 radial trailer tire in a load range H. The radial tire is made of a high quality rubber, reinforced by layers of steel. It's great for highway use. Tread design on it gives excellent traction. It is designed for use on heavy-duty trucks, buses, and trailers. They do offer the tread wear indicators, which are little speed bumps here in the tread grooves that'll give you a quick visual indication of how the tread is wearing on your tire.

This tire also is regroovable. It is stamped on the sidewall "Regroovable for additional mileage." I would recommend to check with your local authorities on that because federal and state laws will apply. This tire is constructed with four steel belts on the tread and a steel ply sidewall for a nice, long life. It does meet the DOT, or Department of Transportation, specifications, and it will exceed your federal motor vehicle safety standards. A few specs on this again: This will fit on a wheel size of 17 1/2" by 6 3/4" wide. The tire's size again, which is stamped on here, 215/75R17.5.

The "R" means it's a radial tire. Section width on it is 8.3". Overall diameter when it's inflated from the bottom to the top, is 30.2". This tire does have a load range H, which means it's a 16-ply rated tire, so the maximum load capacity that's used in a single tire application will be 4,805 pounds at 123 psi, or 4,540 pounds in a dual tire application, also at 123 psi. One last thing is, they do come with a speed rating now, and the speed rating, if you look at where the size was, right after, you'll see two numbers which are the load index and then the letter "J". The speed rating is always listed in a letter designation, so this is a "J", which means it's 62 miles per hour.

That should do it for the review on the Westlake 215/75R17.5 radial trailer tire in a load range H.
