The mirrors attach per the instructions, but the part of the mirror housing that goes over the existing mirror does not fit securely to the housing of the existing mirror. I have nylon tie-wraps squeezing my extended mirror frames to make them catch the existing mirror housing to maintain the clamp effect for the tightening mechanism.

What model and year Dodge are you using them on?

Patrick B.


Those were used on a 2002 Dodge Dakota.


I purchased both right and left mirrors from, along with a hitch. I was surprised that the shipment arrived a day earlier than the the expedited arrival date I was quoted - for no additional fee! I installed the mirrors-using all included parts-and took the truck for a test drive. There was some vibration in the add-on mirrors, but not anything like what I was lead to expect. Maybe some of the other users didn't apply the sticky backed cloth, or didn't align the slot in the brace with the tab in the mirror case properly. I took the time to look at it closely and I'm very pleased, except for the minor vibration. I did screw the retainer screws all the way down to the bottom-with no cracking or splitting of anything-and the add-on mirrors seem to work just fine. Thank you etrailer for your service and CIPA for a well engineered, inexpensive set of mirrors.


Great service – shipped fast – good tracking – good price. Seem to fit very well with no vibration on a test drive. They have to be better than the ones with the rubber straps I have been using. Will know more after first long trip.


Product works great. It's just what I need. Easy to put on and take off. I recommend it to to anyone needing extended pickup truck mirrors.


Good - mirrors don't really fit the stock Dodge Durango mirror, but stay on. Hard to adjust to get best view and vibrate some - but they do extend the visual range and help with the bind spots.


very happy with your mirror. am saving up forother side mirror. be back on road by spring!!


I have 1999 Dodge Ram 1500.. The mirrors fit great and look good and they also fold in real nice .The plastic screw the plastic screw hole should be steel or aluminum so they don't strip or strip out.Also it would make the mirrors sturdier for clapping.


The best design yetEasy to install and use. Increases field of vision greatly. Well worth purchasing.


Good product, excellent service. Thank you!

Gretchen B.


The mirrors have been fine, thank you.


Fit like a glove, works great for the wide trailer. Easy to install and remove when not pulling trailer.


They fit just as stated and arrived intact and fast! Like the fact that they don't hurt or damage your existing mirrors.

  • Will BMW Steel Wheel Fit on a 2010 Chevrolet Equinox
    The BMW wheel has a 5 bolt with a 120mm (4.72 inches) pattern and the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox has a 5 bolt with a 115mm (4.53 inches) pattern. The BMW wheels will not work on the Chevrolet Equinox. I would recommend to check on the wheel itself, sometimes on a steel wheel it could have the maximum load listed on the wheel. On an alloy wheel it is in the casting on the back of the wheel. If the maximum load is not on the wheel you will need to check your owners manual or with the Chevrolet...

  • Reasons Trailer Tires Fail and Will Increasing Load Capacity/Size Help Prevent It
    Tire failure is usually caused by a few things. It can be from overloading the trailer, improper tire inflation, and/or exceeding the speed rating for the tire. You should verify that the tire capacity you have for you trailer is adequate for how much your trailer weighs. The pressure run in the tires makes a big difference in longevity too. ST tires should be ran with the full pressure rating stated on the side of the tire (like you said you have done), for full load capacity and longevity...

  • Comparing ST235/80R16 and ST235/85R16 Trailer Tires
    There are a couple of differences between ST235/80R16 load range E and ST235/85R16 load range G tires. An ST235/80-16 will have a capacity of 3,500 pounds for a load range E. It will be 30.9 inches tall (diameter) and it will be 9.4 inches wide. An ST235/85-16 will have a capacity of 3,960 pounds for a load range F (we do not carry a G). It will be 31.6 inches tall and also 9.4 inches wide. Both sizes will fit on 6 to 7-1/2 inch wide wheels. I have included a link to all of our 16 inch...

  • Speed Rating of Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501
    Trailer tires are rated for speeds up to 65 mph. Speeds in excess of this rating are not recommended as this can lead to heat build-up and premature failure. If a tire is rated to run at a higher speed, this information should be listed on the tire's sidewall. The linked article on trailer tires covers this and many other common concerns.

  • What Causes Trailer Tires to Fail Typically
    While we don't carry trailer tires in the size you need the big reasons for trailer tire fail are overloading, under-inflation, exceeding the speed rating, suspension or alignment issues, and even sometimes if the trailer is not level. Most of these issues end up generating quite a bit of heat in the tires which makes them much more likely to fail. When the tires get hot they get softer which then makes it easier for things to puncture the tire.

  • Tires for a 18,500 Pound Raptor Last About 3 Years and then the Tread Separates
    If you do a lot of towing on dirt and gravel roads and not on pavement then the best tire type to use would be a bias ply tire and not a radial. Depending on your tire size though there may or may not be a bias ply tire available. The other option is to go with a tire in the same size but at a higher load range. It would have a higher ply rating and be stronger. You would still need to keep the tires inflated to the maximum psi. If you could tell me the tire size you have and the load...

  • Can the Same Size Tire be Installed on a Trailer as a Spare if it has Different Pressure Rating
    If the tire is the same size and has a weight rating high enough for the weight of your trailer it would work fine as a spare for the time being. It sounds like it may have a lighter Load Range due to the pressure rating difference. Ideally you would put the exact same tire back on your trailer, but we realize that's not always possible like in your situation. I would just be a bit more cautious for the time being, but you should be just fine.

  • Can I Use Two Different Size Tires on my 5th Wheel Trailer
    So I'll start this off by saying that your tires have 0.9" difference between the two, and while it might not seem like a huge difference it may cause some issues. I would also think that since the front axle normally carries a bit more of the load, that putting the larger 235/85r16 tire in front would be the way to go with this. It's generally not recommended that tires of different sizes are used in these types of applications. Usually the biggest concern comes with the difference in...

  • Can Kenda ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire, Part # AM10501, Replace Light Truck Tires on 5th Wheel
    The Kenda ST235/85R16 Radial Special Trailer Tire, part # AM10501, will fit your 16 x 6 inch rims. Special Trailer tires (ST type) have a stiffer sidewall than light truck (LT) tires and so will not provide quite as soft a ride. Special Trailer tires also usually carry a speed rating of up to 65 mph maximum. I reviewed a number of different NuWa 5th wheels on their website. The manufacturer specifies both LT and ST type tires depending on the series and model. For example, the 8 models...

  • Using Passenger Car Tires on Trailers
    With a few possible exceptions (large fifth wheels that use LT or Light Truck Tires), we recommended that only trailer tires be used on trailers because they have stiffer sidewalls which do a better job dealing with the vertical load tires experience when installed on a trailer. Also, trailers don't have steering axles, which means the cornering forces trailer tires experience are different than those passenger car tires would. For a tire to blow out at the sidewall like you described,...

  • Difference in Size Between 235/85-16 and 225/90-16 Trailer Tires
    A 235/85R16 trailer tire such as the Karrier # AM10501 will be 31.7" in diameter and 9.3" wide while a 225/90-16 trailer tire - which is a size we do not carry - measures 31.9" in diameter and 8.9" wide. I have added a link to a video review of this tire for you to check out.

  • Max Tire Pressure and Load Rating for Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501
    The weight capacity for the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire, part # AM10501, is 3,960 lbs, and the max tire pressure is 95 psi, which is also the tire pressure recommended to run to maximize performance. You should also note that this is a slightly taller tire than the tires you currently have on your 5th wheel trailer. Your current tire is 30.8 inches tall and this tire is 31.7 inches tall. This added tire height may cause clearance issues, especially if you have fenders with...

  • Can 2 Different Load Range Tires of the Same Size be Used at the Same Time on a Trailer
    Ideally you will want the tires to match in construction, size, and load range. What can happen is reduced tracking quality and one set will wear out at a different rate than the other set. I advise going with all of the same load range. If you had a flat it would be fine to use a different load range, provided it was the proper size, temporarily until you can get a proper matching tire put on.

  • Can 235/80-16 Tires on 5th Wheel Be Swapped Out for 235/85-16 Tires
    The 235/80-16 and 235/85-16 tires are very close dimensionally. The 235/80-16 is about 31 inches in diameter by 9.4 inches wide while the 235/85-16 tire is 31.6 inches in diameter by 9.37 inches wide. Both tires will fit on a 6, 6-1/2, 7 or 7-1/2 inch wide wheel. If your 5th wheel has at least 4 inches of clearance between the top of the tire and the underside of the wheel well when it's under load, you'll be fine going with the slightly taller tire.

  • When to Follow Dual Tire Maximum Load on Trailer Tire
    It sounds like you are asking when exactly you need to adhere to the dual tire maximum load (3,520 pounds at 110 psi) and the single tire load (3,960 pounds at 110 psi) with the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10501. "Dual tire" refers to having two tires on each side of a single axle (your scenario number 1). This is when you will need to follow the 3,520 pound maximum load. Your scenario number 2 of a tandem axle setup would call for the single tire load capacity of...

  • Should I Run Maximum PSI Rating on Trailer Tires Even When Carrying Lighter Load
    Yes, you always want to have the tires on the trailer at maximum PSI rating of that tire, in your case, 95 PSI. Anytime you run a lower PSI, it significantly reduces the load carrying capacity of the tire. If you were to run a lower PSI, the thicker sidewall of trailer tires would cause the tires to heat up quicker and will reduce the life of the tires. I have linked and FAQ on tires that you may find as a good reference.

  • How to Determine the Weight Capacity of a Boat Trailer
    The weight capacity of your boat trailer is always going to be limited by the weakest component which could be the axle, tires, or frame. I would also keep in mind that not all tires with an F load range have the same weight capacity, it will vary by tire size. For example, a 235/85-16 tire with F load range has a 3,960 lb weight capacity whereas a 7.50-16 tire has a 3,197 lb weight capacity. If you look on the axle tag of your trailer axle it should list the capacity but if not you can...

  • Cant ST235/85R16 Tires be Used in Place of LT235/85-16 Tires
    LT does indicate light truck which are sometimes found on trailers and RVs. You can switch to an ST235/85R16, # AM10501, which is rated for 3,960 pounds at 110 psi. As an ST (special trailer) tire, you will always need to inflate them to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. This is because trailer tires have a thicker sidewall than passenger vehicle tires to handle more vertical load. And if they are under inflated, due to the thicker sidewall they will generate excessive heat which...

  • Can ST235/80R16 Trailer Tires be Replaced with ST235/85R16
    You shouldn't have any problems switching to the slightly larger ST235/85R16 tire but you would need to replace all of the tires at once. Having different sized tires on a trailer (even if the size difference is small) will drastically speed up tread wear and may lead to damage. The new tire will be just about an inch larger in diameter/height and will have the same width as your existing ST235/80R16. They will fit your existing wheels without an issue. You will just want to make sure...

  • Single Tire Versus Dual Tire Maximum Load on Tires for Kenda # AM10501 and 15,000lbs Tandem Trailer
    Don't worry, I can help explain. The single tire notation of weight would be for your trailer's application. You are correct that the dual tire does mean two tires on each side of the axle like Dually trucks for a total of 4 tires per axle. The tire will also rated individually, so each # AM10501 tire will be able to carry 3,960lbs at 95psi so for an axle total of 7,920lbs at 95psi. This will mean that your tandem axle trailer with the # AM10501 tire will be rated at 15,840lbs at 95...

  • Is the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire a Dependable Trailer Tire
    Most tires, whether they are passenger vehicle tires or trailer tires, will stand up to the test of time provided they are properly maintained. The tires we carry are the same. Trailer tires must be inflated to the maximum psi as indicated on the tire sidewall. This is because trailer tires are constructed with a thicker sidewall. Because of the thicker sidewall they can generate more heat and if under inflated they will generate excess heat and cause the tire to fail prematurely. This...

  • Can I Upgrade ST225/75R15 Tires to ST235/80R16
    You can replace a ST225/75R15 trailer tire with a ST235/80R16 trailer tire as long as you have enough room to accommodate the larger tire. The ST235/80R16 tire will be 1/2 inch wider and 2-1/2 inches larger in diameter than the ST225/75R15 tire. This will put the inner wall of the tire 1/4 of an inch closer to your frame or trailer wall and it will put the tread 1-1/4 inches closer to the underside of the fender/wheel well. You want at least 2 inches of clearance between the inner side...

    As long as you don't overload the tires, keep them inflated to their max PSI, and do not exceed the speed rating that is on the side of the tire (nearly all trailer tires are rated at 65 MPH for their max speed), you should be just fine!

    A couple things I should mention first...Trailer tires should always be inflated to their max psi. Failure to do so will decrease the capacity of the tire and will cause heat to build up. Also, for MOST rim applications the PSI rating is based on the valve stem used and not the actual rim. As long as you go with a high enough rated tire for the total weight of your trailer and keep them inflated to their max PSI you would be just fine. For a tandem axle trailer that weighs 15,000 lbs...
