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.... 484278

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Tires arrived in good condition in three days, individually boxed. Had them mounted today on my Lance travel trailer and they look great, much better than the Tow-Max tires they are replacing. Only minor surprise was that the DOT date code on the tires indicates the tires were manufactured around mid 2017. Nevertheless, they look great and I am confident my BAD experiences (three) with "Blow-Max" brand tires are over. Concerning etrailer, this is one of many purchases I've made over the past 10 years and I have always been impressed with the EXCELLENT customer service, product information and instructive videos, communications, pricing, and product selection. IMHO etrailer is one of the best retailers on the web and I highly recommend them to all. 653723


Comments
Tires continue to perform well, NO FLATS OR BLOW.OUTS. Tites hold pressure extremely well, rarely do I need to add air between trips. I use TireMinders to monitor the tire while on the road, I am very satisfied with them as well.

I am very happy with my new spare tire. I had converted to Radials for better pothole and nail protection. I had the rims and could not find just the tire. It is going on my Whaler trailer. Yes even off season I have begun to spread the word about your prices. WEST MARINE WOULD ONLY SELL ME ONE ON A RIM AND IT WAS $160.00. I HIGHLY recommend your service people for their help. Since you told me about radial tires in a smaller size I may do 3 on my other trailer. Your packing it was great because it was hard to open! That kept the tire in great condition.

I recieved the trailer tires really fast. They have a good tread design and when mounted look great. I installed them on a very small travel trailer which came out with a load range C. These have a load range D which should be an improvement due to a little more pressure and carring capacity. I am very pleased with the delivery time and looks of the tires. 119820

Comments
Please keep in mind that running a tire with a higher load rating will not necessarily increase the load bearing capacity of your trailer. You will still be limited by the capacity of the lowest rated component.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I just received the tires today and haven't had them mounted yet so all I can is they look great. Summer before last, we took our pop up camper out West through 18 states in about 60 days. All of our camping up that point had been around Florida where we live, so no long road trips. On our out West trip we had 4 blowouts on our little pop up camper and since we were on the road, we would pick up tire/wheel assemblies from Wal-Mart or Harbor Freight. Did not really know what else to do. Experience has taught us better and that's why I ordered these load range E, 65 mph, 10 ply rating tires. The proof is in the pudding as they say, so in the fall, we will find out how good these tires are and I will write a full review then. 616909


Comments
Very happy with these tires. Took another long trip last year, Florida to Maine, back home, then to Alabama, Ga and home. Towed 65 mph. No tire problems at all. What a relief!

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


These tires replaces identical tires I bought in 2008 for my TT. We drove to Alaska from Ontario, Canada, in 2009 and then to New Foundland in 2010 in addition to several other minor trips to the east coast and local camping trips. I always maintained 65PSI , whether the TT was parked or on the road. Never had a problem, and they feel good on the road. While the thread is still good, i prefer to get new ones as we are going a trip to BC this Summer... 6 yrs old including 6 Canadian Winters, I prefer to be safe than sorry on the road. I know they are made in China and I sure hope the new ones will be as good as those they will replace. 132141

the 185 80 13 max psi of 65. New to towing, curious - the max psi is 65...what would you anyone recommend for cold tire pressure. This is for a popup camper, empty weight 2175 lbs. loaded - guessing 2,500 lbs.Car tires have max psi of 36, manufactuer recommends 32 cold.heres where the confusion sets inThanks!

Car tires and trailer tires work a bit differently. The car manufacturer specifies where to air the tires to for the best combination of ride and performance. With trailer tires, their load capacity is in part determined by tire pressure. If the trailer tire has a max of 65 psi, you will need to air to 65 psi cold in order to achieve full weight capacity. If the pressure is less, so is the weight capacity of the tire. Pressures on the side of a tire are always cold figures.

Comments
The tires purchased in 2014 have been good , however I sold the TT earlier this Spring. Having said that , this last Spring, I bought the same make for my utility trailer and my new to me tent trailer. I always have maintained the pressure at the maximum PSI for the maximum load. When on the road, I checked them daily , during the evening, 5 or 6 hrs after we stopped or first thing in the morning, before leaving. So far absolutely great tires.

Review from a similar Karrier Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Just returned from 2nd long road with about 3400 miles each. Also logged a few 300 mile trips. So far, holding up well. Run 50 psi. Tires are D rated. This is my 2nd set of 4(double axle). 1st set didn't quite go as far. Had sidewall failure on two of the four. Maybe bad batch. Would recommend due to steel belts and D rating. Original equip. was C rated and fiber glass belted. 647694


Comments
Trailer tires, unlike those used on passenger vehicles, should be kept at the maximum pressure indicated on the tire sidewall, which is 70 psi in this case. Failure to keep the tires fully inflated can lead to excessive heat build-up, which is the number one cause of premature tire failure.

New tires arrived VERY quickly. Amazingly fast delivery .......5 tires arrived in individual boxes, very impressive delivery system!! Tires appear to be very heavy duty re sidewalls, I did read the reviews before ordering and am hoping for good results. Not exactly happy that the build dates on the tires are over one year old..........and yes I did read the rebuttle to someone elses pointing out the one year old thing. Tires made in China. Hoping for the best based upon many positive reviews. 567758

    In the tire size of 235/80-16 the best tire option we have is the USA made Goodyear part # 724858519 as it has the best tread design for wet and dry traction, has the highest speed rating at 87 mph, a great weight capacity at 3,420 max load at 80 psi and also comes with a great warranty.

  • 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...

We recommend having at least 2 or 3 inches when it comes to fender and trailer frame clearance with your tires. The easiest way to increase that clearance is to use a Dexter Axle Over-Under Conversion Kit to raise the height of your trailer equal to the diameter of your axle plus the height of the leaf spring stack.

  • 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.

    The part # TTWTRTM2358016E is going to be your best option. This has the best price on tires in your size and unlike most trailer tires this one is rated for up to 81 mph. Nearly all trailer tires are rated at 65 mph. The weight rating for the tire is going to be 3,520 lbs at 80 psi. With trailer tires you have to have them inflated to their max psi rating to ensure that you get the full capacity.

  • Choosing Appropriate Tires for 5th Wheel Camper Based On Weight
    You are correct that when choosing a tire, the load capacity of the tires are added together for the total capacity. For a trailer like you mentioned with a total weight of 13,000 pounds, you will want each tire to have at least 3,250 pound weight capacity. There is not a specific percentage of extra capacity that needs to be taken into consideration. You can certainly use a tire with a larger weight capacity to have some breathing room.

    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.

    The answer to this is going to depend entirely on the tires you have because you always want to inflate the tire to the maximum cold psi because it will allow the tire to handle the full capacity it is rated for, and give you the best performance, allowing the tire to wear slower and more evenly. For example, the Karrier ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # AM10248 should be inflated to 90 psi, while the Westlake ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range E # LHWL401 has...

  • 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.

    Fifth wheel trailer manufacturers assume that some of the weight of the trailer is carried by the tow vehicle. So it often seems like the tires on them are underrated for the gross trailer weight. And that is true. However they also assume that the trailer is going to be towed perfectly level which isn't always true.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Can More than One Tire Size be Used on a Trailer
    I cannot recommend you run two different size tires on your trailer. It may not seem like that much of a difference, but the two sizes you mentioned have different overall diameters.

I attached a help article on trailer tires for you to check out as well.

  • 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...
