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.

Thank you for having Kenda brand trailer tires. I shopped around for a replacement set, only to find frightening prices, or zero stock. This is the second set I ordered from you with speedy service. The second set was even in a bigger box (no squishing).



Great I like Kendas! Always consistent quality and sizes. I see questions concerning PSI. I vary my PSI depending if Im trailering full, or empty. Empty, 80 PSI will have it traveling on the center of the tire on a light motorcycle trailer with lots of bouncing around. I bring the pressure down to 40 PSI and watch the contact pattern on that particular trailer, and adjust as necessary.

@Terri That works just fine, but don't forget to air them back up when the trailer's full...


Although the tires are excellent, squishing two of them into an undersized box is now going to require wooden block spacers and a couple of days in the sun to get all the warpage out of them so the beads can seat. Not very pleased about that. Use a bigger box next time, or two boxes. Free shipping can't be costing you that much.



After a sit in the sun, the tires finally regained their shape, and have been working great!! I love Kendas, even on my vehicles.


Replaced my 35+ years-old 4.80-12 trailer tires, thank God I never had a blowout at speed, but the sidewalls were dry-rotted bad enough to get new ones for safety.
I switched to the Kenda K353 5.30-12 LR C tires so I don't need to worry about weight limit on my trailer.
Haven't towed it more than a few miles, but it feels great w/ the newbies on the axle.


Have towed about 500 miles with no problems.
5 stars do to not knowing longevity yet. Installed on my boat trailer with 16’ fiberglass center console boat as load. Tires run smooth and quiet.


Mounted easily to my trailer rims. Look and feel like good quality. As always Etrailer customer service can't be beat.


So far so good, not the best, but this size is hard to find, where I live. Trailer came from TSC, now they don't carry this size. So have to order online, from CHINA!

Awesome products with great service and delivery. I will be ordering again soon. Thank you etrailer!!!


The tires were perfect and have lasted just fine and the 1/2" rod for the stabilizers was exactly what was needed.


Order came in quickly & product looks way better than the flimsy tires we order for our trailer from another company. The last tires both blew out on our first trip in our camper. Will post more after we travel in a few weeks on these.


These tires didn’t even make it a year before I had to replace them. They were weather-checked all the way around. They’ll work in a pinch but don’t consider them a permanent solution. Junk.

Weather cracking on tires can have several causes. If a tire is under or over inflated, if it is overloaded, or driven hard over rough terrain can leas to cracking in the tread of the tire. You will want to adjust the pressure or the load if needed. Keep an eye on how the tread is wearing on the tire. We have a good FAQ about tires that can help. The tire does have a 5 year warranty against manufacturer defect.


My tires are brand new, so I can't really tell you about longevity, but my transaction with etrailer was nice and shipping was faster than stated.


What I needed for my camper



tread wearing great on tire


ease of ordering. excellent shipping. tires were installed on camper and we are ready to go when the heat spell ends.


The product arrived on time and it will be installed this evening.


Just put tires on and one of them blue out within 20 minutes of my drive.

Thank you for reaching out! I have sent your information to our customer service team and they will be getting in touch with you about the warranty that these tires come with.


Great service and received order within two days. Placed it around 3 o’clock one day and got confirmation that they had already shipped by 5!


The tire shop had a hard time mounting the tires due to they were smashed


Just bought the Kendra tires for my lawn trailer, have them mounted but haven't had chance to use them yet. I will say however that I have never had a more pleasant sales transaction.
It was easy, efficient, the price was very good and I was kept informed of my order status throughout the process. I.placed my order on Wednesday and had my tires the following Monday . I will use e-trailer again and would recommend them to my friends.



very well, no issues at all


Needed 3 tires for my boat trailer to match a new one from last year. Etrailer had the best price for the exact tires I needed. One was backordered but they all arrived when promised. Very good service and follow up.


The tires are great.


Tires work great! Went cross country with them from California to Michigan. Had a loaded up utility trailer being pulled by a loaded up Ford Ranger. The tires did just as well in the desert as they did in the mountains and in rain. They sat outside on the trailer through a Michigan winter then worked like new in the spring on a trip down to North Carolina. Expected wear, with no dry rotting or anything. Highly recommend these tires.


I recently received my order from e-trailer. I ordered a Dexstar wheel, a pair of Kenda tires, a chrome when center cap, lug nuts and screw in studs. I read all the pertinent info supplied as well as check exactly the brands, sizes etc of the parts I was replacing. I was notified by email (from Phyllis) the day following the order placement that their was a shipment delay of the tires, I was supplied with equivalent tire replacements which could have been supplied to keep the order on time or wait a week and get exactly what I originally ordered. I waited and received everything faster then I thought it would have taken. Phyllis kept me updated every couple days on the order progress- so nice! I was a little unsure if the screw in studs would fit but ordered what seemed to be the best match (had to start somewhere & figured I could return if no fit) and studs and lugs fit as stock- exact matches. This was my 2nd order in two years and have had great customer service and better then stock replacement parts, certainly all for a cheaper price then I could ever find in NW Montana! Thank You all at e-trailer!

by: has again done an excellent job. I needed three trailer tires and they had them for a good price and delivered them promptly. I've gone to three times now for different things and received just what I wanted each time. Keep up the good work!

The tires are still rolling along just fine a year after purchase and I continue to like


Tires are now working very well on my pontoon boat trailer. Have never been partial to radial tires for trailers, so these are not as bouncy/mushy, especially for a heavier pontoon boat. The stiffer construction works much better than radials. The valve stems were also very easily installed and also work very well. Overall, very satisfied with the quality of the tires and the valve stems. Would definitely recommend these products to a friend.


The moment this tire arrived I couldn't help but admire how round it was. Additionally noted how crisp and clean each groove of tread was. It was like this tire was hand carved by a Japanese craftsman. A true work of art. As I gazed upon it I immediately realized I could never put it into service on my trailer and instead hung it in my living room as a centerpiece. It has hung in my living room for 11 months now stunning passers by daily. Of course there is the opposite end of the spectrum - those who criticize my decoration strategy. Obviously... the latter individuals are banned from my home forever. Upon deep reflection it is surprising how many relationships this tire has cost me. What do they know? Who do they think they are? Of course the real issue here is that my trailer is still not operational and I still need a tire. Quite the conundrum I face. What would you do?

  • Can a 4.80x12 Trailer Tire be Used as a Spare on a Trailer with 5.30x12 Tires
    As a short term solution should you get a flat or blowout you could use a 4.80x12 in place of a 5.30x12. But you will want to get the 5.30x12 fixed or replaced as soon as possible. Having a different size on the trailer can affect capacity, tracking, tire wear, and overall ride quality. I recommend sticking with the 5.30x12 size as a spare to avoid any possible issues. We have numerous tire and wheel combos in this size which I have linked for you. You will want to match the load range...

  • How Much Taller is a 5.30-12 Trailer Tire Compared to a 4.80-12 Trailer Tire
    For a 4.80-12 trailer tire, the overall diameter or height is 20.5 inches. For a 5.30-12 it is 21.9 inches. That is a difference of 1.4 inches but you will only see half of that, 0.7 inches, in added height. Please keep in mind that going to a taller tire will raise the center of gravity of the trailer and can lead to the increased likelihood of sway. Going up 0.7 inches may not be much of a factor but you will just need to be aware of the possibility. Also, the 5.30 tire will be 1/2...

  • Should Trailer Tires Be Inflated To Max PSI During Colder Weather
    When airing up the Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire # AM10066, the tire is designed to be inflated to the 80 psi when the weather is colder. The tire can handle the increased pressure that comes with they heat up during driving. The only way it would get to hot is if you exceed the speed rating for the tire. The Kenda Tire # AM10066 has a speed rating of 65 MPH. It has a load range C with a ply rating of 6 and has a maximum load capacity of 1,045 pounds at 80 psi. I attached a review video...

  • Upgrading to Larger Tire on Trailer with 3-1/2 inches of Fender Clearance
    In order to have enough clearance for your trailer to travel over bumps in the road, you will typically want to have at least 3 to 4 inches between the tire tread and the fenders. You will want at least 1 to 2 inches between the side wall and inside of the wheel well. With this in mind, you do not have much room to work with in terms of mounting a larger diameter tire without the risk of having some clearance issues. To move slightly up in size and capacity, I recommend looking at a 5.30-12...

  • Will The Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Tire, # AM10066, Replace A 4.80-12 Tire On A 4 Inch Wide Wheel
    The Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire - 5.30-12 - Load Range C, # AM10066, will fit a 4 inch wide wheel. You will want to check clearances on your trailer to make sure the taller and wider tire will fit. The 5.30-12 tire size will be 1-1/4 inches taller in overall diameter and 3/4 inch wider.

  • Does Load Range of Tire Indicate Speed Rating as Well
    The letter ratings you mentioned are the Load Ranges. These are related to the weight capacity of the tire and do not reflect the speed rating. The tire part # AM10066 that you referenced has a 65 mph speed rating.

  • Are Larger Diameter Trailer Wheel and Tires Easier on Wheel Bearings
    Since a larger diameter wheel and tire would spin slower at the same MPH than a smaller diameter wheel/tire yes, in theory a larger diameter wheel/tire is easier on bearings. That said, we don't see smaller setups wear out at a noticeably faster rate than larger diameter setups. For other reasons larger diameter setups are preferred though. They provide a smoother ride quality and typically have higher weight capacities and speed ratings. I attached a link to a page that has all of the...

  • What Pressure Should Travel Trailer Tires be Inflated to That Have 80 PSI Max on Sidewall
    With trailer tires you need to keep them inflated to the max psi rating you see on the sidewall when cold. So in your case you'd want to inflate them to 80 lbs when cold and you'd be set. Lower psi will diminish the weight capacity of the tire as well as cause heat build up. Vehicle tires will have ranges but trailer tires you have to inflate them just to the max figure and you're set. I attached a help article on trailer tires for you to check out as well.

  • What Pressure Should Trailer Tire Rated at 80 PSI Max be Inflated to
    Trailer tires should be inflated when they are cold and should be inflated to the max psi rating on the sidewall. In your case you would want to run 80 psi. If you don't inflate them to the max psi figure you will lose weight capacity and potentially cause the tires to overheat and fail.

  • Why Does a 12 Inch Trailer Wheel have a 13 Inch Diameter Overall
    Wheel diameters are not measured using the overall diameter. The are measured for diameter where the tire sits so the diameter is less than the overall diameter of the wheel. With 5.30-12 tires you have 12 inch wheels so tire # AM10066 will fit.

  • Recommended 5.30/12 Trailer Tire for Trip From NY to FL
    I recommend using the Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire - 5.30-12 - Load Range D # AM10068, which have the highest capacity of all of the 5.30x12 tires we have available at 1250-lbs. These are bias ply tires, which are ideal for the load bearing required of a trailer since they have stronger sidewalls and will do just fine on your trip from NY to FL as long as you keep the tires properly inflated on your trip. I've linked a short review video of these tires for you to have a look at.

  • Tire Blowout on Starcraft Pop-Up Camper
    Special trailer tires should always be inflated to their maximum air pressure (in this case, 80 psi). Manufacturers test their tires to determine the optimal inflation level, and 80 psi is common for 12” trailer tires, so inflating to 80 psi won't cause a blowout in itself. The most common cause of tire blowout is overheating. Overheating can be caused by several different factors: -Overloading the trailer. If the load range of the tire is exceeded by the weight of the trailer, this...

  • How Much Weight Can Trailer with 4.80-12 Tires Hold
    A trailer will always be limited to the weakest components. I can't speak about your trailer specifically but the 4.80-12 tires can hold up to 990 lbs for class c. This does not account for the carrying capacity but if you subtract the weight of the trailer it can get you close. If you require a higher load rating then I recommend the Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire part # AM10066 which is rated for 1,045 lbs per tires.

  • Compatibility of Lower Air Pressure in Trailer Tires
    The Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # AM10140 is the same as the tires you referenced changing your tires out to. The psi level in your tires being reduced may reduce the bounce, but it also will likely reduce the life of your tires as they are designed to be run at 80 psi cold. I don't recommend running the tires under the max psi listed on the tire. These specific tires are also only rated for 65 mph max so if your tires are similar will also impact...

  • Are Different Size Trailer Tires Okay
    It could be a problem for you to have tires with different psi ratings because that means it is likely you have different size tires. This will cause them to wear unevenly and for your trailer to potentially track differently and cause possible suspension issues. I very strongly recommend all four tires be the same size with the same load capacity in order to get the best possible performance. It may be something that cost a bit more now but is definitely one of those things that will save...

  • Will Replacing Bias-Ply Tires With Radial Tires On 2003 Snowbear Utility Trailer Solve Bouncing
    I spoke with our tire expert here and they told me that the 12 inch tires you have on your trailer can be balanced, and that perhaps the tire shop you were dealing with may not have the right equipment to handle your tire size. If you are experiencing the bounce when the trailer is unloaded, that can be normal. If it is bouncing when the trailer has a load then there may be problems other than the tires being out of balance. Trailer tires are designed to be run only when inflated to their...

  • Does the Center Pilot Hole of a Trailer Wheel Have to be an Exact Size
    There are two different types of trailer hubs that will determine if the pilot hole on a wheel matters or not. First there are hubs that use wheel bolts to secure the wheel to the hub. These are called hub-centric. For this type, the pilot hole has to be exact because that is how the wheel centers on the hub. Then there are the type that use lug nuts to secure the wheel to the hub. These are called lug-centric. The pilot hole can be larger but obviously not smaller because it wouldn't...

  • Can 4.80-12 Trailer Tires Be Replaced with 5.30-12 Tires
    A 5.30-12 trailer tire like the excellent Kenda K353 # AM10066 will be about 0.7 inch wider and 1.2 inches taller than the existing 4.80-12 size tires you currently have mounted. As long as you have the fender and frame clearance available for this slightly larger tire then you can absolutely make this switch. Keep in mind that only half of each of those differences in size will actually affect these clearances. We recommend having at least 3 inches of clearance between the top of the...

  • Are Radial Trailer Tires Better than Bias Ply Tires for a Pop-Up Camper
    Bias ply and radial tires are good at doing different things. Bias ply tires have a sturdier sidewall and are thus better for off-road and agricultural applications but still work just fine on pavement. Radial tires track better and run cooler than bias ply tires, especially on pavement, but can handle off-road applications as well. If there is an option in the size needed then I would go with radial tires. But as far as a 5.30-12 the only options are going to be bias ply which again is...

  • Tire Blowouts on a 20 Ft. Boat and Trailer with 5.30-12 Load Range C Tires
    Most trailer tire blow-outs are due to heat build up from an under-inflated tire. Trailer tires have a thicker side wall and when under inflated the thicker side wall generates more heat faster and can cause the tire to fail. You should always inflate a trailer tire to the max psi rating indicated on the tire. Always use tires rated for trailer use. They will have an ST in front of the size. I have linked an FAQ on trailer tires.

  • Why are 5.30-12 Sized Trailer Tires Heating Up Excessively on a Short Trip
    If the tires are getting too hot there's a few things to consider. Things like the overloading the tires or trailer, not inflating them to their maximum psi, or exceeding their speed rating will cause the tires to built up too much heat. I also don't recommend having two different tires on the trailer. Even though they're the same size and rating doesn't mean all is created equal. If you need replacement tires we have # AM10066 that are 5.30-12 sized tires with Load Range C. They're...

  • Recommended Upgrade for Pop Up Camper with 5.30x12 Tires
    The Kenda K353 Bias Trailer Tire part # AM10066 for load range c or part # AM10068 for load range d is what I recommend for a 5.30x12 trailer tire. These are excellent options backed by a five year warranty. They are rated for 1,045 lbs and 1,250 lbs respectively so make sure you choose the one that matches what you have now. These will be a much better option than the Hi-Run's you have now.
