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.

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....

Excellent radial trailer tire. Purchased set of six wheel/tire combo from etrailer 2015. Used this Karrier as replacement tires in June 2022. Very happy with this, and all, purchases from etrailer.

Great service and fast shipping (free too) I bought a set of these mounted and bought this one for a spare. Chose these mostly for the load and speed rating as I use my trailer primarily on the hiway.

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for Size 235/80R16
    I am pretty sure the tire size you are looking for is 235/80R16 which for a great tire in that size the Kenda part # AM10248 that you referenced would be a really great option that has a higher speed rating of 81 mph, an automotive style tread pattern for great traction, and a higher weight rating of 3,197 lb.

  • Can Karrier ST235/80R16 # AM10248 Replace Kenda KR35
    Yes, the Kenda ST235/80R16 Load Range E part # AM10248 will work great with what you have now. The only real difference between it and the KR35 is the tread pattern.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Trailer Tire Replacement Recommendation for a Trailer with LT215/85R16 Tires
    The tire size we offer that is closest to the 215/85R16 that you said you have on your trailer is the ST235/80R16 part # AM10248. These are very close in size so they should work well for you. Also, these are ST rated tires that are specially rated for a trailer application so they should work better than your LT tires you currently have. The price is available at the provided product page link.

  • Which Tires for 8500 lb 5th Wheel to Replace Existing ST245/75R-16
    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. Any of the tires we offer for 16 inch wheels should have plenty of capacity for your needs,...

  • Will a ST235/80R16 Work as a Spare Tire on a Trailer With ST235/85R16 Tires?
    There are 2 concerns with using a ST235/80R16 # AM10248 in place of the ST235/85R16 # AM10295 as a spare on your trailer. First is you may have a possible weight capacity issues since there is a weight capacity difference even with both tires both being load range E. The 235/80 is rated for up to 3,500lbs while the 235/85 is rated up to 3,640lbs. The next issues is since the tires are different heights 30.9" versus 31.6 this can alter how the weight is distributed on the suspension depending...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Trailer Tire Recommendation for a Komfort Travel Trailer with 235/80-16 Tires
    If you need a 235/80-16 tire then you will need # AM10248. This is a load range E tire rated for 3,197 pounds at 90 psi. The tire you have referenced, # AM10295, is a 235/85-16. 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. The trailer tires we carry are good tires and we have not had any significant issues with them. The important thing to remember is to always inflate a trailer tire to the...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Tires that Are not Inflated to Their Max PSI Rating
    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. I would recommend you not exceed the capacity of the lowest rated component in your setup. In this case you...

  • Will Going to a Higher Load Range Tire Prevent Blowouts on a 5th Wheel Trailer
    First, regarding inflation, trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum pressure as indicated on the tire. If you do this when they are cold (always inflate tires cold) there is no need to let any air out after they have warmed up. The slight pressure increase will not cause any problems, even in the desert. If the tires are inflated to the max and they are blowing out it could mean the trailer is overloaded. But based on what you have said the trailer was going to and from...

  • Minimum Safe Distance Between Tandem Trailer Tires on 2011 Palomino Sabre 31CKTS
    At a bare minimum you want 1" of clearance between the tires on your tandem axle trailer, more is better. You are correct, the tire can expand when it heats up which would definitely be a safety concern if your tires are rubbing together which could cause some serious issues. You will want to switch back to the original tire size which should give you the clearance you need to be safe.
