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.

Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Very nice tire and wheel. . .will be the spare on the new camper trailer we're building, so it may never come off the spare tire mount and go to work. . .but it will be there if we need it. Price was very competitive and the quality seems excellent. What's not to like in a spare tire full of air?

Again E Trailer exceeds expectations. Product delivered ahead of time and fit perfect. These tires and rims makes the trailer look great. E Trailer is always my place to shop if I need something for my trailers. Thank you E Trailer again you have exceeded all expectations.

Using this as a spare for my 4x8 trailer. Can't really speak to the long term quality of it, but from the looks of it on my spare holder, it will likely do the job.

- AM30740

THE PRODUCTS PURCHASED ARE GREAT !! I have already used them and they work just fine. Possibly better then the originals. The ordering and the delivery were exceptional and actually better then I expected. I believe the pricing was a fair price for the quality. Based on my experience I would (and have already) recommended ETRAILER.COM to anyone.

The tires and wheels arrived quickly and mounted perfectly. No issues. A quality product.

Review from a similar Loadstar Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I know, it is just a spare. But necessary for my trailer to have, since it has but 1 wheel. This review is based exclusively on the amazing performance and customer service of etrailer. I recently purchased a 2” receiver for my Prius, and that was noted by etrailer, and they expedited the shipment of this spare because I was a return customer, and someone there took the time to not only write an email saying so, they responded to my note of surprise and gratitude. I see no reason to shop elsewhere.

Working like a charm.

Review from a similar Loadstar Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

The reservoir I fish at has a questionable ramp. I removed the 12 inch tires and replaced them with the 8 inch. This puts it a little closer to the water and I don't have to back in as far. Retrieval will also be better. Fast, accurate service with a very reasonable price. Thanks for everything.

Working great.

Review from a similar Loadstar Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Nice new tires and wheels for my 50 year old boat trailer that has been off the road for 22 years! Thank you for having what I needed in stock.

I havent had these on the road yet. So far I have only moved the trailer around my property. I expect to start road trips this summer. Thanks again for having what I needed.

Review from a similar Loadstar Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Having a small popup camper with 8" tires at first seemed to be an issue as I always read not to go faster than 55 MPH with them. As the song says I can't drive 55. lol A few years ago I decided to buy brand new tires for the camper as we were leaving Florida and going to Montana I thought new was best and so off we went. I did 55, then 60, got brave and got up to 65 MPH. By day three I was doing a little over 70 MPH for about 20 minutes then going back down to the mid to lower 60's. By the end of our three week trip 72 MPH was then norm. The tires handled perfectly. At the beginning of the trip I was worried about the tires and by the end of the trip not so much. The next year as we planned or vacation I thought new tires was a good idea. Second vacation was another cross country trip and the tires held up fine. I never had a worry about them but I did watch my speed. Just over 70 MPH for a while and then slower in case they were getting hot. Passing other cars from time to time I got pretty darn near 80 MPH but only for a very short time. Vacation three came and again new tires were to call of the day. Florida to Colorado. Same as before but this time I had a blowout in Texas. Good thing I had a spare, my tires from last year. I don't know why the tire blew out as we were heading back from Colorado cuz the tread was back up the highway. lol The spare brought us home. Covid 19 ruined our vacation this year but hopefully next year, 2021 we will be back on the road again. And yes I will buy another set of these Kenda 5.70-8 Bias Trailer Tire with 8" White Wheel - 4 on 4 - Load Range D. Around $100 for a little piece of mind is worth it. I'm not telling others to drive above the rated speed for these tires, I'm just saying what I did. Three very long trips and just one blowout. I'm very happy. My word of advise is buy a new set every year and keep the two you just replaced as spares. I actually have three spares cuz ya never know. I highly recommend these tires and wheels. Our Popup is light too, only just shy of 1,000 pounds. If I had to guess why the tire exploded I would guess it was over inflated.

We used 8 Kenda tire for 3 vacations cross country and they worked great but this year we we did an over under axel swap and did 12 inch rims and tires and whoa what an improvement.

Review from a similar Loadstar Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Recently got me a used Jon Boat trailer and noticed the 8 inch tires were dry rotted. While looking for shackle bushings found these bigger 12 inch for cheaper than local prices. My friend said going to a bigger tire puts less stress on the bearings so I got me a couple. Fit was perfect and it actually set the trailer and boat higher so I can see it in the rearview mirror better. Havent had them on the road yet but expect they should be ok.

So Ive had these about a year and a half now and havent had any issues with them at all. Wear is great. I check the pressures and have yet to have to add any air. The reservoir I fish is about a hour each way and mostly interstate. I have been about 6 times this season as well as to my local river about 30 minutes numerous times. I have been very happy with these and highly recommend them.

  • Availability of Trailer Wheel and Tire to Replace a 155R12
    A 155/12 tire will be about 6.1 inches wide. The closest match is a 145/12 at 5.7 inches wide. I have included a link to all of the tires and tire/wheel combos we have in this size. A 155 isn't a trailer tire size (unless it has an ST in front of the size). For a wheel and tire in this size on a 5 lug wheel you would want the part # AM31215.

  • Special Trailer Tires to Replace 155R12 Radials on Boat Trailer
    Radial type special trailer tires will tend to run smoother (and cooler) than bias ply tires since they offer more flex and better ground contact, thanks to their softer side walls. However passenger car tires should not be used on any trailer application. Special trailer, or ST tires, are the only type of tire that should be mounted on a boat trailer (with few exceptions) since they are made to handle the vertical loads from trailers. The equivalent tire size to your 155R12 is a 5.30-12....

Kenda # AM10130 is a Load Range D radial trailer tire that offers a load capacity of 1,220-lbs at 65 psi. For a higher-capacity tire Kenda offers a Load range E tire, part # AM10140, that is also a radial but that is rated for 1,520 lbs at 80 psi. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi pressure that is noted on the tire sidewall. It is never appropriate to under-...

  • Can Larger Wheels be Added if They Have the Same Bolt Pattern
    The answer to your question is yes, you can use 14" wheels to replace 12" wheels if they have the same bolt pattern, and since you mentioned both wheels have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern you are fine to replace them, though you will need to replace the tires at the same time. For example if your camper currently had the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM30740, you could replace it with the Westlake ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 14" Silver Mod Wheel...

  • Can 4.8-8 Trailer Tires Be Replaced with a Larger Size on a Boat Trailer
    First, you will need to make sure the tire capacity (combined) meets or exceeds the loaded trailer. Any given trailer tire can come in different load ranges which will vary the capacity of that tire. A load range B in 4.80-8 has a capacity of 590 pounds per tire. Going up to a load range C and the capacity increases to 760 pounds per tire. Avoid overloading the trailer. Make sure you are within the stated capacity (which should be on a sticker or plate somewhere on the trailer frame...

  • Will the 5.30 x 12 Tire Size Fit a Small Camper With a 4.80 x 8 Tire
    The 4.80 x 8 tire size that you have now is 16.1 inches tall and the overall width is 4.6 inches. If you go to the 5.30 x 12 tire size, the overall diameter is 21.9 inches tall and 5.6 inches wide. The first number (4.80 or 5.30) on the tire size designates the width range of your tire in inches. You will want to make sure you will have enough clearance on your camper for the 5.8 inch taller and 1 inch wider tire. I do not list a 5.40 x 12 tire size available. The 4.80 x 8 tire size...

    A 155/12 tire will be about 6.1 inches wide. The closest match is a 145/12 at 5.7 inches wide. I have included a link to all of the tires and tire/wheel combos we have in this size. A 155 isn't a trailer tire size (unless it has an ST in front of the size). It is wider than all other 12 inch trailer tires which leads me to believe that if it is on a 12 inch trailer wheel it could be too wide for the wheel causing it to leak air.

  • Can a 4.80-12 Trailer Tire Replace a 4.80-8
    The 4.80-12 trailer tire size is designed to fit a 12 inch rim and you have 8 inch rims currently so you would have to replace the rims and tires at the same time assuming you have the fender clearance. If you have a 4 bolt pattern you would want the part # AM30620, if you have a 5 bolt pattern you would want the part # AM30660. The tires will be overall about 4-1/2 inches taller than what you currently have.

  • Will 5.30-12 Trailer Tires Fit In Place of 155/80-12 Trailer Tires on a Tent Trailer
    A 155/80-12 is definitely not a common trailer tire sized, though it may have been at one time. It sounds more like a car tire size which should not be used on a trailer. The trailer tongue or frame should have a sticker or plate that indicates the size it requires. If it does say 155/80-12 you will need to go with the closest match since that since is no longer available. The 5.30-12 tires are going to be very, very close. They will be only 1/2 inch more narrower and 0.2 inches taller...
