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.

Tires on my camper have been good. I did have one blow out, but I thought the service I got to have it replaced was great. Of course I have no way of knowing what caused the blowout, but it was replaced no problem and I appreciate that. Thank you


I haven’t mounted them on my trailer but I’m concerned about quality control . Two are identical . The third seems to be narrower along the inside wall and won’t stand on its own like the other two .

Hi Gene, Thanks for your feedback! Sometimes tires will look skinnier after being stacked up in the warehouse. Once they are mounted and set at the correct air pressure it will perform as it should.


Need a tire for my boat trailer what I can't find around, but sure enough I found it 1000 miles away. Came 1 day earlier, very happy with there service.A ++++


These tires are great. I replaced the car tires that were on my utility trailer when I bought it and the trailer seems to tow much better and can now handle the weight of a load of wood much easier with the stiffer sidewalls.
Had them mounted and balanced at a local tire shop which is most likely why the trailer tows better.
I would definitely go with these again.


AWESOME Tires, the only tires I use on all my personal vintage trailers as well as Client Restorations that come through our shop! Whether it is a fully restored museum piece or a trailer we are rescuing from cross country, these are the tires of our choice!!

This tire is just what I needed, I purchased my car trailer several years earlier and it did not come with a spare tire & wheel. Worried me some early on about being on the road having a vehicle on the trailer and having tire trouble especially since the tire size could be difficult to find at a lot of tire stores. I feel a lot safer now having a spare for my car trailer. Having a spare tire and wheel for my trailer, takes the worry out of being on the road miles from anyplace I could have found what I needed.


Tires weren’t stored very well. Looks like they had something very heavy on them for some time and deformed them. They will be very difficult to mount or might not mount at all. Getting the bead to set will be very difficult.


Quick and easy order, fast delivery


I was disappointed in the condition of the tire when it arrived. The tire was squashed down and so out of shape I had a hard time getting air in it. It was like something very heavy had sat on top for it for a long time. I hope it holds the air.


ordered online with no problems. delivered promptly. Good product


Easy transaction


This is an excellent company and product. The tires were shipped ASAP and came as ordered in a couple of days. They look "outstanding" on my 1972 camper, priced very well and with great service!!

Thank you,



Good Price Great Service!





top notch product.


Good tire for the price point. I put them on a 20 yr old trailer. The rim was really nice for the price. I blew out a tire towing my ATV back from a hunting trip, which was why I ordered the tires and rim. Rim fits my old trailer good will be ordering another.

Fast shipping. I have ordered from E trailer in the past and they are very good. I got a 20K reese 5th wheel hitch and bed rails last time. I highly recommend them . My buddy uses them also for his boat trailer parts Ed


This tire came with my new trailer. It has outlasted all other brands of tires I have had on my trailers.



These tires last longer than other trailer tires I have put on my trailer. But still why do any of them have to wear out? :


Good product and delivered quickly.


Tires i needed were in stock. Good price. Confirmation email came immediately. Tires shipped quickly and were packaged well

by: by far has the best customer service I have ever dealt with! As always my tires arrived just two days after I placed the order. Absolutely amazing! The value is incredible too. Best price I found and free shipping to boot! I will continue to make etrailer the first and only stop for all of my trailer needs.


Good piece of mind to have these heavy duty tires on my car carrying tandem. I overload it to haul my little dozer and these tires are mighty.


Ordered five trailer tires in load range D. I was excited to receive them promptly from etrailer through UPS and glad to report that etrailer was the only source that I could find to carry the desired quality of tire I was looking for. Thanks again to


High quality tire. Had it mounted to the new wheel. I now have a good spare for my trailer again. Great service from etrailer as usual. Thanks!


Your service doesn't let down. Product is good


I bought a wheel and tire for a spare for my car trailer, could not ask for a better price or service and really fast shipping. Thanks etrailer.


Fast shipping as always. Haven’t pulled the trailer yet with them, but all reviews on here suggested these tires are a dream

  • At What Age Should Trailer Tires be Replaced
    Trailer tires really shouldn't be used after 6 years of age. The materials of the tire just breaks down to the point they become compromised and will eventually fail. In nearly every situation the treads will still be seemingly good and it's age that wears them out before the tread is gone. Tire covers to protect them from the sun like what you can see at the attached link is a great way to help keep them in good shape.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Tire Tread Wear on the Outside of the Tire
    It sounds like you need to replace the tire on your trailer that has become rounded. If the shape of a tire becomes distorted or warped like you described it could fail at any moment and needs to be replaced. If what you are describing is just the tread wear then you have different problem most likely. Under inflated tires would show wear on the inside and outside treads. You should note that trailer tires should always be inflated to the max psi rating that is listed on the sidewall...

  • Is LoadStar ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire a Tubeless Tire
    Good question; the Loadstar ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire - Load Range D # AM1ST96 is a tubeless tire, and that is the norm for trailer tires now. Bias tires don't require a tube, and even though some people still use them, we do not recommend it because it can cause the tire to overheat if towed at any type of speed. You've made a smart choice with the Loadstar, which are highly rated tired by our customers, as you can see by the outstanding rating in the customer reviews section on...

  • Explanation for Trailer Tire Tread that is Convex Rather Than Flat
    I consulted with our resident tire expert, and we're both at a loss. Heat build-up caused by over or under inflation, overloading the tire or failing to observe the speed rating of the tire (65mph in most cases) are the typical causes of premature tire failure. When you describe the tires as being 'rounded', I'm assuming that you mean that the tread portion of the tire is convex, rather than being flat so it makes full contact with the pavement. Over-inflation usually causes this, but...

  • Should Trailer Tires be Inflated Over Maximum psi
    No you should not inflate your trailer tires to over the maximum psi; if your tires have a max of 35 that should be what they are inflated to as going over could also cause the tire to wear in the center of the tire quicker than it should. Underinflated tires is a potential cause for your tires wearing on the outside but it might also be an issue that the weight on your trailer is not enough to straighten the axle when under load. Trailer axles have a slight bow to them that straightens...

  • What Might Cause Outside of Trailer Tires to Wear Out Quickly
    It's not uncommon for what you are experiencing to be related to axle alignment issues or even a bent axle. I'd recommend having a shop who can do trailer alignments check out the trailer to see if they can find an issue before replacing the tires. Since the outside of the tires are wearing out I would guess the axle may be bent forward.

  • How Many Plies are in an 8 Ply Rated Bias Trailer Tire 225/75D15 # AM1ST96
    Sometimes the number of plies is indicated on the tire sidewall. in this case, the only ply information that is on this tire is that it has an 8 ply rating and that they are nylon. because of the strength of today's materials, there may not be 8 plies. This is because the materials used today can carry more weight and less plies are needed. The ply count does not actually matter. You want to go by the load capacity of a tire. For # AM1ST96 the capacity is 2,540 pounds at 65 psi. Trailer...

  • Causes of Trailer Tires Wearing In Center On My Triple Dexter Axle Car Hauler
    If any of the components were bent or damaged there is a chance that the bent parts could be causing the irregular tire wear that you are seeing. If a component was bent you would usually see tire wear on the inside or the outside of the tire depending on which way the part is bent. More than likely the tire wear is being caused by the amount of air in the tires. If the tires are over inflated, then typically you would see more wear in the center of the tires. If the tires are under inflated,...

  • How Do Trailer Tire Weight Capacities Work
    Tires like the part # AM1ST96 that have a 2,540 lbs at 65 psi are rated per tire. So if you had a tandem axle trailer you would multiply 2,540 by 4 to get the total trailer tire capacity that you would have. You should note that to get the full capacity of the tire it will need to be inflated to it's max psi rating.

  • How to Determine the Date a Trailer Tire was Manufactured
    To determine the date any trailer tire was made, including the Loadstar ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire # AM1ST96 you only need to find the date code. There will be a four-digit code on the sidewall of the tire and the first two numbers are the week of the year it was made and the last two will be the year. For example if you see a code that reads 2918 that means the tire was made in the 29th week of 2018. That said, tires do not wear out from age for anywhere from five to seven years...

  • Where is the psi Rating Located on a Trailer Tire
    It may not be on both sides of the tire. You may need to check the other sidewall for the inflation information. It is pretty small on there too and may show other units of measure in addition to the psi rating. For an ST225/75-15 radial tire a load range C tire will be rated at 50 psi. A load range D will be rated at 65 psi. And a load range E will be rated at 80 psi.

  • Can 235/80-16 Size Tire with 80 psi on Sidewall be Run at 70 psi Instead
    When it comes to trailer tires you always need to have them filled to the psi rating found on the sidewall. Your 235/80-16 size tire, like part # LHWL401 on our site, has been tested for the specific weight capacity and speed rating at 80 psi and anything that is higher or lower will mean that the weight capacity and speed ratings are unknown. This can result in blowouts and premature wear on your tires. Unless Les Schwab has a special reason, and they have verified from the manufacturer...

  • What is the Speed Rating of Kenda ST225/75-15 Trailer Tires and are Radials Rated for Higher Speeds
    The trailer tires that we carry including # AM1ST96 are rated for up to 65 miles per hour. Bias ply tires and radials are rated the same. If anything a radial would have a higher speed rating because they track better and run cooler than bias ply tires. But it doesn't matter in this case because both types are rated for a maximum of 65 miles per hour.

  • What Tire Pressure Should Trailer Tires be Kept At
    Always go by what's on the sidewall of the trailer as the amount of tire pressure to use when the tire is cold. This will ensure you get the full capacity of the tires and prevent heat build up. The other thing you need to consider is the max speed rating for the tire. You need to stay under what the speed rating is too as that will cause excess heat too. It's normal to see some pressure increases on the highway but as long as you are under the weight capacity for the tire, at the max pressure,...

  • What is Correct PSI Inflation Pressure for Special Trailer Tires
    All special trailer tires regardless of size should always be inflated to the maximum psi pressure rating that is noted on the tire sidewall. It is never appropriate to under- or over-inflate a trailer tire since only when inflated to their rated pressure can tires deliver their specified weight capacity. It sounds like your trailer may have had a different size, type or weight rating tire originally specified by the manufacturer and this could be why the trailer itself lists a recommended...

  • Can 6-Ply Tires Be Used On Travel Trailer With 8-Ply Tires
    You will always want to use tires that have a capacity that is best suited for your trailer. It is always recommended to use tires that are the same size, have the same load range and construction on a trailer. If tires that are not matched, you could have problems like overheating and overloading which can lead to tire failure. You always want to make sure you inflate the tires when cold to the maximum psi for the best performance. I have attached a helpful article about tires and...

  • How Much PSI to Put in the Loadstar ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire Part # AM1ST96
    If you are referring to the Loadstar ST225/75D15 Bias Trailer Tire part # AM1ST96 then you will want to fill them to 65 psi which is the max psi for this tire and what we recommend filling them to. If you did not fill them to the max psi then you would not receive the full load carrying capacity of the tire which is 2,540 lbs. If you are referring to another tire then the max psi will be listed on the sidewall.

  • What Does the 117/112L Mean on a Light Truck LT Tire
    The 117/112L that you are seeing on your tire is in reference to the load range and speed rating. There is tire load index chart for light truck (LT) tires and the 117 corresponds to 2,833 lbs for single tires and the 112 corresponds to 2,469 lbs for dual tires. The L corresponds to speed rating L which has a max of 75 mph like you mentioned. Therefore, the above load range would be suitable for a tandem axle trailer with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 8,495 lbs. If you can let...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Tire Wear on Outer Tread
    The first and easiest thing to check is to make sure the tire is inflated properly. If the tire is under-inflated, the sides of the tire tread will wear quickly. The recommended psi should be listed on the sidewall of the tire. It is odd that your tire is wearing on the outer portion of the tread. When abnormal tire wear is a problem, it is more common on the center tread or inner tread caused by over inflation and overloading. If your tires are inflated properly or you continue to have...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Tires Wearing Out on the Outside Treads
    The wear is going to be the same with a bias tire or with a radial tire so changing out the style will not help with what is causing the wear. If the tires were over inflated, the center treads would wear. Under inflated tires would show wear on the inside and outside treads. If the wear is just on the outside then the tire is riding at a slight angle with the bottom pointed more in toward the trailer than the top. You will need to check the suspension components, axles, spindles, to make...

  • Proper PSI for Trailer Tire
    On any trailer tire you always want to inflate the tire to the maximum cold psi, which you said on your tire was 80 psi. Doing this will give you the best performance, allowing the tire to wear more slowly and give you optimum gas mileage.

  • Recommended Tire Pressure for ST225/75-15 Trailer Tires
    Trailer tires should be kept inflated to the maximum pressure listed on the tire sidewall, as opposed to passenger vehicle tires that will have a certain acceptable range. If a trailer tire is inflated to a lower air pressure than the recommended maximum, the amount of weight that the tire can carry will be lowered. If a heavier load is put on the trailer tire than what is recommended for that air pressure, the sidewall of the tire could heat up and cause the tire to fail. I'll link you...

  • Size Difference Between Tire Sizes 215/75-15 and 225/75-15
    The difference between those two sizes is the 215/75-15 is 10 mm narrower and .6 of an inch shorter than the 225/75R15 size. Typically the larger sizes will have higher weight capacities as well.
