Bias Tires vs. Radial Tires

Bias vs. radial tire graphic

Bias ply tires are designed for off-road or agricultural applications. They are built with thick, durable nylon cords that are positioned at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the direction of travel. The layers alternate in a crisscross pattern, making the sidewalls stiffer so that the entire tire is able to flex easily. As a result, the tire provides a smooth ride and improved handling when trailering on uneven surfaces.

Perfect match for an old 1960's era Montgomery-Ward utility trailer I found buried in a junk pile and restored for use on the farm behind ATV and golf cart.



by:

Awful - The problem isn't the quality of the tires, it's the condition I received them in. The tires came squashed so flat they couldn't be seated tubelessly. I had to put tubes in. I didn't want tubes. Sure, now that they're stretched I could maybe take them off and mount them without tubes but who's going to do that? I could tell by eye these weren't squashed flat in shipping, they are stored that way in the warehouse and probably came that way packed from the manufacturer. Very disappointing experience. Wouldn't order again.

This is some thing that we do hear about these tires. When the manufacturer ships the tires. they are tied together and shipped on large pallets. Since they are compressed together to save spacTye, they look a bit out of shape or smooshed when they are delivered. Typically it will mount on the rim just fine however if they are troublesome then I recommend setting out the tire in the sun to make the tire more pliable. Or by a fire place when the temperatures are cold outside.



by:

Great tire! A little tough for me to wrestle onto the rim, but my buddy Charlie did it easily with tire spoons. It is tubeless, it sealed really well, it's DOT approved for highway use, and it is a perfect fit for my heavy duty 7/8 axle utility trailer. For my off road use it will live forever! Thank you.



by:

My wheelbarrow got a flat...again. So I tried a different route. It's a trailer tire but I noticed it is 8in, the same as my wheelbarrow. This is a much more robust tire than the ribbed [tire] that typically lives there. I think the load rating is like 750lbs, way more than I will ever put in there. Anyway if you want to put a truly heavy duty tire on you wheelbarrow, this is it. etrailer had the best price and it got here fast.



by:

Identical tire to my 18 year old log splitter tire that finally wore out. Wasn't easy to find but of course Etrailer had it and got it to me in Montana in a couple of days. Great tire from a great company!!



by:

Great tire, put on a bayliner



by:

Tires were what I was looking for



by:

Just as I expected. This was a direct replacement for tire that had a punctured sidewall.



by:

Perfect fit for my boat trailer- FAST s hipping!



by:

These tires are perfect in every way. What I received was exactly what I was expecting. I would absolutely recommend etrailer for tire needs.



by:

Excellant choice for my project. Very happy with the price and delivery from E Trailer. They are my go to source. Thank you



by:

Great tire for the wood splitter. Fast shipping, definitely will use again in the future!



by:

The tire looks good I have not had a chance to mount it yet



by:

Great tire ,easy to install. The trailer rides smoothly.



by:

Fast delivery, and exactly as advertised. Cut old tires off after breaking bead, and then slipped new tires on with some lubricant. Will purchase again, as needed.



by:

I received the items as ordered, etrailer upgraded the shipping so I would get the items sooner. I would recommend using etrailer to anyone.



by:

Still working great after one year on my boat trailer, they've kept pressure and seem to be holding up well. They were very easy to mount with regular tire bars. Service from etrailer was great as well, they were quick to ship and I received the tires well before I was expecting. Also hard to beat the price!



by:

Good tire.



by:

I haven't installed these yet but they look fine, looks like a good tire for the price



by:

The tires are a perfect fit on my Rubbermaid yard trailer. I couldn't be happier!



by:

The tired arrived on schedule and they are great replacements for the tires on my Hobiecat trailer



by:

Very good tire. Very hard to install. No issues with them



by:

Good product and price.



by:

Service was great. Tires look great. I will get them installed on Monday and complete your survey after I can check them out



by:

I have an old wheelbarrow that takes this size tire. This trailer tire is much higher quality and carries much more weight than an ordinary wheelbarrow tire. Installation was simple using the old tube. I am very happy with this product and the service.

  • Is the Trailer Tire part # AM10002 a Tubeless Tire
    Yes, the part # AM10002 as well as all of the other trailer tires we offer are tubeless.

  • Troubleshooting Center Tire Wear When Tires are Inflated Properly
    Typically when you have wear just in the center tread of a trailer tire it is due to the tire being over-inflated. With that being said it sounds like you are properly inflating them to the maximum 60 psi that is listed on the tire sidewall so this doesn't appear to be the issue. Another factor that might lead to the center wear is heat builtup on the tire from exceeding its speed limit. Unless otherwise indicated on the sidewall, trailer tires will have a maximum speed limit of 65 mph....

  • Things to Consider When Changing to a Different Tire Size on a Trailer
    When considering a different size tire for a trailer there are a couple different things to think about. The first thing to consider is clearance. With a smaller tire you might end up with more clearance in the wheel well, but you might end up with the trailer being too low to the ground. You could potentially drag the rear of the trailer while driving through a valley or going up a hill. Another thing to consider is how the height of the tires will affect the sway of the trailer. A taller...

  • Can 5.30-12 Trailer Tires be Used to Replace ST205/65-10 Tires on a Snowmobile Trailer
    The more narrow the tire the less contact with the road it will have which means the ride will be smoother. But I would go with the tires the trailer manufacturer recommends for the trailer. It should indicate the proper size on the tongue or frame somewhere. The ST205/65-10 tires, if they are a load range D or E will have a higher capacity than all sizes for a 5.30-12 tire so you would be limited to the lower capacity if you did make the switch. The 5.30-12 will only be about 1.4 inches...

  • Are Kenda Tires Rated for Highway Use by DOT?
    The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range B # AM10002 are rated for highway use by the DOT and in fact exceeds their requirements. Please take a look at the review video I've linked for more information regarding this fantastic tire.

  • Is 8 inch Trailer Tire part # AM10002 Designed to be Mounted By Hand
    You wouldn't want to try and mount an 8 inch trailer tire like the part # AM10002 to a rim. You would want to take the tire and your rim to a shop and have them use their machine to mount the. No need for a sealant either.

  • Can Taller Trailer Tires be Used to Raise the Height of a Trailer
    You could go to a larger tire size on the trailer as long as there is enough room all around the existing tires for the larger size. Going from a 4.80-8 to a 5.30-12 is a pretty big jump. The 5.30-12 is about 5.8 inches taller and about 0.5 inches wider. The width is probably not an issue but if the trailer has fenders or anything else above them then the larger size would likely not fit. You will also need to use different wheels. I have included a link to the tire and wheel combos in...

  • Replacement Tire For Log Splitter Trailer With 4.80-8, Load Range B Tires
    Yes, you will be able to use the Kenda Loadstar K371 Bias Trailer Tire - 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range B # AM10002 on your log splitter trailer. It does not matter that your wheels slide onto the axles versus being bolted on. You only need to ensure that the wheel is 8" x 3-3/4" where the tire mounts, which you likely have since the tire is the same as your current size.

  • Replacement 4.80/4.00-8 Tire for Log Splitter
    We can help you pick out a tire but we do not have any wheels like that. For your tire size of 4.80/4.00-8 we have the part # AM10002 which would fit and work well. This is a Kenda brand tire just like what you have.

  • Does Kenda K371 Load Range B Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 Require an Inner Tube When Mounted
    The Kenda K371 Load Range B Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 that you referenced does not require an inner tube. It is not recommended to use a tube with a bias-ply trailer tire due to the resulting heat build-up that could cause tire damage. This Kenda trailer tire exceeds DOT specifications, has a maximum load rating of 590-lbs at 60 psi inflation and fits rims that measure 8 x 3-3/4-inches. When fully inflated this tire will have an overall diameter of just over 16-inches. This and all trailer...

  • Okay to Switch from 4.80 x 8 to 175/80-13 Tires on 4 on 4 Bolt Pattern Wheel
    The 4.80x8 tire you mention, part # AM10002 has about a 16.1 inch diameter. A tire for a 13 inch wheel, such as a 175/80-13 will be about 24 inches in diameter. If you have a cargo trailer, you'll probably need to replace your fenders, as the existing ones won't provide the necessary 3+ inches of clearance between the top of the tire and the underside of the fender. I've linked you to our fenders for 13 inch wheels. You'd want to go with a 13 x 4-1/2 inch wheel, if you click the provided...

  • Can 8 inch Trailer Tires Handle Highway Speeds
    Check the sidewall of the tires on the trailer and you should find a speed rating. For this size 4.80-8 like the part # AM10002 the common speed rating is 65 mph which as long as you kept the speed under that you'd be fine.

  • Determining Correct Tires and Wheels to Replace Mobile Home Parts on Motorcycle Trailer
    If your motorcycle trailer is equipped with mobile home tires and wheels, I definitely recommend replacing them, as these types of parts are only intended for one time use. If you are able to tell me what size tires you currently have mounted, along with the bolt pattern on your hubs, I will be happy to make some recommendations that will work. If you do not know what bolt pattern you have, I have attached a great article that explains exactly how to measure this. I have also included...

  • Should Inner Tube Be Used with Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002
    I want to start by thanking you again for your purchase. We truly appreciate your business. The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM10002, that you purchased do not require a tube. This tire is specifically designed for use without a tube and using one would cause too much heat build-up and result in premature failure of the tire. Since our trailer tires are not designed to use the inner tube, we do not carry them.

  • Can Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tires be Used with a Tube
    The Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 does not require a tube. It's also not recommended to use a tube in a tube-less tire. Due to how tube-less tires are constructed it will cause additional heat buildup which is the number one reason tires fail.

  • Is it Recommended to Go to a Smaller Wheel and Tire Size on a Trailer
    The problem with going from a larger wheel size down to a smaller one is primarily that you lose a lot of weigh capacity when you do this and also the tire sizes for each wheel size don't both give you the same overall tire diameter. The 13 inch tires are much smaller than the 15 inch wheel tire sizes. I would recommend you stick with the size you have. I attached a chart that has all of the tire sizes we carry. You can see the overall diameters in the right column and the capacities...

  • Availability of High Speed Tube for Kenda Loadstar K371 4.80/4.00-8 Trailer Tire
    The Kenda Loadstar K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 that you referenced is a tubeless tire so there isn't a tube available that will work with it. This is actually the case with all of our available trailer tires, as tube tires aren't very common anymore and we don't typically recommend them for trailer applications. This Kenda tire has a maximum speed rating of 65 mph, which is the highest speed rating we have for 4.80/4.00-8 size tires. I have attached a short video review that you...

  • Could Trailer Tire Size 4.80-12 Replace a 5.30-12 Tire
    The two tire sizes you mentioned fit the same size wheels so yes, a 4.80-12 would replace a 5.30-12. The difference is the tire will be slightly narrower and right at 1-1/2 shorter in diameter. The part # AM10002 that you referenced could work as long as it would give you enough weight capacity at 590 lbs at 60 psi. I attached a review video for this tire for you to check out as well.

  • Utility Trailer Is Bouncing When Towed - Check Air Pressure
    Tires should be inflated to the maximum air pressure as stamped in the tire. For instance, the Kendra # AM10002 tires (that you page linked) have a maximum air pressure of 60 psi. At that pressure they will support 590 pounds each. If you have a single axle trailer with two tires, then together they will support 1180 pounds. If you have a tandem axle trailer with 4 tires then you have a load limit of 2360 pounds. Trailers tend to bounce some, especially when not loaded. Springs should...

  • Difference Between Tire Sizes 4:80/4.00-8 and 4:80-8
    The tire size 4.80/4.00-8 actually covers two sizes, 4.80 and 4.00-8. So to answer your question; there is not difference at all. The part # AM10002 would work well for you.

    Yes, the Kenda Loadstar K371 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10002 that you referenced is tubeless. This is actually the case with all of the trailer tires we currently have available. This particular tire features a maximum load of 590 pounds at 60 psi. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Is a 4-Lug, 4.80-8 inch Tire and Wheel Adequate for Trailering a 400 lb Ariens Garden Tractor
    It really just depends on the weight capacities of your rim and tire. The tires we sell that are the same size as yours have capacities of 590 lbs and 760 lbs depending on the load range of the tire. One of these tires would be adequate for your setup. You will need to check the weight capacity of your tires and wheels to determine if your setup is adequate. The weight capacity of the tire should be stamped on the sidewall along with the maximum psi recommendation for the tire. You always...

  • Availability of a 4.80/4.00 x 12 Trailer Tire and Wheel Combo
    What you have to remember is that the 1.2 inches taller # AM10002 tire will actually only be 0.6 inches closer to the fender because the extra height is distributed evenly above and below the axle. Take a look at the trailer and see if there is space enough for the extra 0.6 inches (just under 5/8 inches). If so then you can go with a 4.80-12 tire. If there is not space enough then you would either have to go to a smaller tire size (all the way down to an 8 inch) or modify the fender or...

  • What Is Maximum Highway Speed For Kenda K371 Bias Trailer Tire
    The maximum speed rating for trailer tires is 65 MPH. The B rating is the load rating for the tire, which is 590 pounds at 65 PSI. You always want to have the tires of your trailer inflated to the maximum PSI rating at all times. If they are not inflated to maximum PSI, the thick sidewalls can heat up and wear faster than normal. I have linked an FAQ on trailer tires that you may find as a good reference.
