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.

Solid tires. Have about 800 miles on them and doing great.

Only just put tires on, so can't yet report on them. They look/feel well made. etrailer made good on their 110% price guarantee when I proved a lower price elsewhere. When it appeared there was going to be a delay in shipping they called and offered an alternative tire which I chose to decline and waited for these. They arrived earlier than anticipated however. Easy transaction, hope the tires are as good as other reviews. A word of warning; the shop took 8 hours yesterday to do a laser alignment on my Correct Track equipped 5th wheel and to mount these 4 tires. Adding insult to injury, they billed a half hour apiece to mount them, or $270! I almost blew a gasket after they had told me that it would only be a couple of hours and that I'd be fine waiting. The sign on the wall for $29 (each) mounting was if you bought their tires (very fine print). Needless to say I didn't let them get away with that. I at least give them credit for honoring the $29 sign on the wall after arguing it. Next time I'll be getting them mounted elsewhere....

The tire I ordered was of excellent price and quality, I received it right on time.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Unfortunately these only lasted 2 years and less than 8,000 miles before the belts "slipped" and the tires ballooned and got tall and round. I pull a 10k GVWR two-axle toy hauler weighed at 7800 lbs on the axles. These survived two 2600 mile trips and a few shorter trips at up to 65 mph. 3 of 4 tires ballooned and I replaced them before they blew. I filed a Kenda warranty claim and they denied that they could see anything wrong in the pictures. etrailer said Kenda handles warranty claims for these.


Comments
Kenda does indeed hold a 5-year limited warranty on these tires. It seems that our customer service department is in the process of getting that warranty claim issued for you.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Tire was back ordered, I waited, not needed right away. New tire has a date code of 5/21, 14 months old already. Also ordered a halogen light. The box was 2.5 times too big. Halogen light was unwrapped and unprotected in the box. I hope it works. Big fail on this one!


Comments
I am so sorry that this happened to you! Was your light damaged in any way?
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 07/15/2022
Light was scratched, and cover had rubber marks on it from the tire. I was replacing an identical light. My old cover was fine, so I used what I had. I made it work.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Tire order was delivered on time with all accessories. I put 75psi in the Kenda Kendra ST205 75R Class D tires and installed on my McClain tandem axel trailer. Perfect match for the trailer. Perhaps i will write a review after a year of fishing. I normally travel 5k miles a year fishing from Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Florida.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Ordered 5/26 with a promise of delivery 6/3 .. tires were delivered 5/28 .. $10 less than my local dealer if he could even get this model .. he is a Kenda dealer, he did relate Kenda trailer tires are the best out there. etrailer is the best.


Comments
Been on over a year still looking like new. Tread wear is excellent, no indications of any stress on sidewalls, no cupping or any othe indication of uneven wear. Thoroughly satisfied. Would buy again, but given how they are wearing it may be a few years.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Delivery was fast and wheels were individually boxed in heavy shipping cartons. Rims and tires were perfectly mounted and were blemish free.

The styling and quality of the rims are outstanding, as are the 8 ply tires. Huge improvement in appearance and load handling over the galvanized rims and 6 ply tires.

The customer service at etrailer is the best I've experienced in a long time. You can buy from etrailer with confidence.

Great fit. Was just what I wanted. Was time to get rid of the old bias ply tires. Used them for a couple of hundred miles and over some rough mountain roads. Held up well. Looks like a winner!

  • Speed Rating for Trailer Tires
    Unless otherwise stated all trailer tires are rated at only 65 miles per hour. I know there are a few manufacturers out there with trailer tires that are rated for more than 65 miles per hour, but we do not carry any of them. If you exceed 65 mph, heat could build up in the tire and cause it to break down and fail. If a tire is rated to run at a higher speed, this information should be listed on the tire's sidewall.

  • Information About Trailer Tire with a Load Range E ST235/80R16
    We have a Load Range E trailer tire with a ST235/80R16 size, part # AM10248. What I can tell you about this tire is that it has a section width of 9.4 inches, has an outer diameter of 30.9 inches, has a 3,500 lbs at 90 psi capacity when used on a single axle trailer, and has a 3,197 lbs at 90 psi when used on a tandem axle trailer. I attached a review video for this tire for you to check out as well.

  • Trailer Tire Blow Outs on a 2007 Carriage Cameo 5th Wheel Trailer
    What probably occurred was excessive heat build up like you have said. Trailer tires are made with a thicker side wall. This thicker side wall is made to handle more vertical load associated with trailers. If a tire is under inflated, this will allow for excessive heat to build up and the tire will not be able to cool down like normal. This is when you get blowouts. The solution is easy. Make sure that you inflate the tires to the maximum psi rating as indicated on the tire. For the Karrier...

  • Trailer Tire Country of Origin, Balancing Information, and Switching to a Larger Size
    The Kenda Karrier Radial Tire, # AM10248, is made overseas in China. It seams that most trailer tires are now made overseas. If you were to purchase a tire and wheel assembly, the tires are mounted on the wheel from the manufacturer, but they do not balance them the way that a tire shop would balance a tire. They do not use weights to offset a light side with a heavy side. Instead, they try to match the light side of a tire with the heavy side of a wheel. If you wanted it balanced beyond...

  • What is the Best Tire Pressure to Use in a Trailer Tire
    I would strongly recommend you put in the maximum tire pressure listed on your trailer tires. Any more or less will cause ride and tire wear issues, as well as cause heat build up and lower your tire pressure. Check out the tire and wheel FAQs I attached for you.

  • Shortest Diameter Trailer Tire for a 16 inch Rim
    The shortest tire we carry that is designed to fit a 16 inch rim would be the size 235-80R16 that is 30.9 inches in diameter. For that you would want the part # AM10248. I attached a review video for this tire for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Tire for a Cyclone Toy Hauler 3 Axle 18,000 Pounds
    According to my research, your Cyclone toy hauler came equipped with ST235/80-16 tires (30.9 inch overall diameter) load range E. I recommend the Kenda Karrier radial tire # AM10248 because it's a radial tire and a load range E. It has a load capacity of 3,197 pounds at 90 psi. A radial tire will flex more and as a result providing better ground contact, traction, stability and tread wear. In addition, it runs cooler than a bias ply tire allowing it to last longer. Keep in mind that...

  • 16 inch Diameter Trailer Tire Recommendation, 235/80R16 Size
    We have several trailer tire sizes, but we do not carry the 235/70R16 size that you referenced. The closest size we offer is the 235/80R16 like part # AM10248. This is a radial tire with a 3,500 lbs at 90 psi capacity that should work well for you as long as your rim is 16 inches in diameter and between 6 and 7-1/2 inches wide. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Can a 235/80-16 5th Wheel Trailer Tire be Replaced with a 235/85-16 Trailer Tire
    The 235/85-16 tires will be approximately 3/4 of an inch wider than the 235/80-16 tires. Based on the space you have available (less than hand width) you would not be able to go to the larger size. You would be best off sticking with the size you have. If you want to go to a higher load range the only tire we have for a 235/80-16 is # AM10248. It is a load range E rated for 3,197 pounds at 90 psi. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire.

  • Should Tire Pressure be Inflated to PSI Rating Marked on Tire?
    Inflate your tires to 80 psi cold like is marked on your tires now. The tires that were originally on your fifth wheel are almost certainly different than what you have now, which is why the spec sheet has a different psi. To get the best performance and keep the maximum load capacity you want to follow the psi that is on your tire at the moment, which is 80.

  • What is the Correct Tire Pressure for Trailer Tires
    Trailer tires are designed to be kept inflated to their max PSI that is listed on the sidewall of the tire. You will want to inflate the tires when they are cold. So what you need to do is check the sidewall of your tires and find where it says the max tire pressure rating. That's what you should inflate the tire to when cold and you will be good. This ensures you get the full tire weight capacity as well as speed rating. Lower tire pressure allows the sidewall to flex which causes heat...

  • Would Load Range E Kenda Tire ST235/80R16 Be Adequate for 13k Trailer
    If you are under the weight capacity and speed rating of the tire plus are running the max air pressure listed on the tire you would be just fine. If you have a # AM10248 on your trailer wheels which has a 3,500 lb capacity per tire you would have a 1,000 lbs of extra capacity when you add up all the tires. So in that regard you would be fine. But this tire does require you to run 90 psi to ensure that you get the full weight capacity.

  • Size Difference Between ST235/80R16 and ST235/85R16 Tires
    Yes, there is a size difference between the Kenda Karrier ST235/80R16 like part # AM10248 and a Goodyear Endurance ST235/85R16 like part # 724860519. The diameter of the ST235/80R16 is 30.9" and the section width is 9.4". The Goodyear Endurance ST235/85R16 has a diameter of 31.73" and a section width of 9.25". The ST235/85R16 is a couple inches larger then the ST235/80R16. They both fit 16" wheels. You can use the larger tire if you have the clearance to do so. We recommend at least 3-4...

  • Recommended PSI for Kenda Karrier ST235/80R16 Load Range E Trailer Tire
    Most trailer tires, including the Kenda Karrier ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire # AM10248 that you referenced, should actually always be inflated to their listed maximum psi regardless of the trailer's load. The maximum load of 3,500 pounds for this Kenda Karrier Tire is dependent on it being inflated to the max 90 psi. Inflating it to below this number will essentially reduce the tire's capacity to an unknown number which can easily lead to you overloading the tire with the trailer's...

  • Dual Wheel 6.5 x 16 Tire Replacement
    I recommend the Kenda Karrier ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire item # AM10248. This is a comparable replacement for your current tires. You will need to measure the space between your current tires to ensure you have enough room for the bigger tires. This tire is rated to fit 16" diameter x 6.5" wide" wheels but each one will be an inch wider and you will need to ensure you have enough space on your dual wheel to mount wider tires.

  • Can Trailer Tires Be Used on Front of Farm Tractor
    According to my research, it is acceptable to use trailer tires on the front wheels of a tractor for the use you described. The # AM10248 tire in ST235/80R16 fits best on a 6, 6-1/2, 7 or 7-1/2 inch wide wheel. The tire has an E load rating, which carries a 3,197 lb capacity per tire, or 6394 lb per axle.

  • Comparing Kenda and Transeagle Tires for 5th Wheel
    I recommend going with the Kenda Karrier ST235/80R16 Load Range E # AM10248 over the Transeagle alternative. I know it might sound like I'm being biased because we carry the Karrier, but when I was comparing the tread on the Kenda compared to the tread on the Transeagle, the Kenda has more grooves and breaks in the tread which means it will be more effective at dissipating water when the road is wet. The Kenda Karrier also comes with a 5 year warranty while I didn't even see a warranty...

You will want to switch back to the original tire size which should give you the clearance you need to be safe.

    Based on the information I read on your Cyclone toy hauler the trailer comes with ST235/80-16 tires Load Range E, like # AM10248. These tires have a capacity of 3,197 pounds. The 3 axles on the trailer would equal at least 6 tires bringing the capacity of the tires to 19,182 pounds. This exceeds the gross trailer weight of 18,000 pounds.

    You will want to choose tires whose individual load rating is greater than 1/4 of the fully loaded and ready to tow trailer weight. For a dual axle 8500 lb trailer (assuming fully loaded weight), you would want each tire rated greater than 2125 lbs. Since the typical capacity of 4 16 inch tires would be so much greater than the weight of your fifth wheel, the load rating is not really important.

    I would recommend you stick with your current size if that is why your trailer manufacturer recommends and just keep the tires inflated to their max psi, keep your speeds below 65 miles per hour and avoid overloading your trailer you should be fine. However, I am concerned because you said you have (2) 10k axles yet you are overloading them when you are hauling between 24k and 26k.

It could potentially fit though it would be about 1/2 inch taller. If you have clearance around the tire for a larger size you could use it.
