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"

Bought these tires for my double axle pontoon trailer. They have been great! As well, the service, and customer support , from etrailer has been wonderful. I will do business with etrailer in the future.

A year later, and still loving these tires and rims.
Robert A - 07/26/2022


Great tire/rim replacement for my basstracker trailer. Great support and customer service. George was there to answer all my question.

After a year of no problems and about 1000 miles I would recommend this company and product.
Bert - 06/01/2022


I've ordered from etrailer at least once in the past and the hard-core RV people I work with swear by your company. I omitted my e-mail address on my online order and got nervous when I hadn't heard anything, called etrailer after 5 pm and they promptly located my order (it had shipped!) and updated it to include my e-mail address. Can't wait to install the load range D tires and enjoy a worry free 200 mile trek to Inks Lake State Park.


Excellant service, Delivered before estimated date, tires and wheels look great on my rebuilt trailer.
Will do business with again.


etrailer did an excellent job - easy to place the order, delivery was better than expected, and the right product got delivered. Oh yeah, the product was good too! This transaction could not have gone better.

This isnt rocket science but even a year later these tires and rims have totally performed as advertised. Meeting expectations isnt something to be taken for granted - good job!
Mark T - 05/21/2022


Product is good...but had to purchase bias ply because no radials were available in 12" 145x5x4.5 for 6months...
So I settled on a narrower basis so I can use boat this fall


Great service, got my order within a week.
service helped me with options on what tires to choose from, very convenient.
Second time ordering product thru Etrailer.


i received my order and had a defective tire. i contact customer service on a Saturday and the replacement tire shipped out on sunday. it doesnt get any better than that


Bought two of the 12" Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire & White Wheel for my Pontoon Boat Trailer. Came on time and was perfect. I've put a lot of miles on it taking my pontoon to different finger lakes in NW PA and they perform perfectly and I travel 70 mph. Definitely recommend this tire and wheel and company as it came exactly as they said it would. Will not hesitate to buy from them again.


Tire was great and had the correct tire pressure so i did not need to fill it up. Shipping time average, price a little high but great that you had this tire while other places did not.


So far so good after a year. Use them on my 5x8 trailer to haul my large 4x4 quad then I hook the trailer to the quad and haul people in the trails for fun hay rides. I Even use it to haul ice fishing gear on to the ice. No flats or issues yet.


I like the tire and rim. I matches the tires on my trailer. The only thing troubling is that it took months to get it.


Website easy to navigate. Product specifications make comparisons simple.
Delivered exactly what was ordered. D-rated 8ply utility trailer tires mounted on white spoke rims. Theses come with reinforced stems with locknuts.
8 ply for same price others advertise for 4 & 6 ply.
Packaging and handling - no issues
Delivery - Paid to have order expedited and it was. Great job great follow up.

One year review kenda d-rated trailer tires. No issues to report with these tires and rims. D-rating put to the test on several gravel pit runs. etrailer is still a five star company provide prompt service, knowledgable staff and reliable products.
Ben - 05/05/2021


As always etrailer got me the tires I needed faster then I expected


The tire is very excellent, which is by far stronger than the last tire i had.

The tires are still going strong and durable too.

Seller provided product tracking information. Product was as advertised, and arrived in excellent condition.


A well built tire. Good construction and rolls smoothly.


Great product, feet perfect, I glad have a business with you. Thank you. Igor Blagikh

this tires is perfect,using whole year after I bought this - I like them so much.Thank you. Igor
Igor B - 07/08/2016


excellent service ! quick delievery


I received these tires in a timely fashion. I have not had the opportunity to put them on my trailer yet but I feel that they will be a great tire. The rating was just what I needed to see as I will be hauling my Indian full-dressed motorcycle on this trailer at times. I didn't want to trust the old tires that came on the trailer.

Great price and fast shipping! is a great place to do business.

The tires and wheels have done well.
Brent - 03/30/2019




The tires have served well well. If I had to do it over again I would order the same tires. Thank u and your company for a great experience and hope to go business with u again someday
LHARRY W - 01/17/2015


Arrived in great shape, when expected.


Item arrived quickly and in perfect condition! Love the excellent quality of the trailer wheels. My husband is excited to get his utility trailer back into working order using these wheels!

Wheels are still working GREAT!
Gwen G - 12/30/2016


Fit just like the old ones in every way. These have the good metal valve steams that seem to last longer for me then the rubber cased ones. Etrailer has the best price I could find, and load range D that I could not find local. These also came in a box (well 2 boxes, 2 units per box) which I was somewhat surprised on, I have ordered wheels and tires before from other vendors and they were just tied together with cardboard on the wheel, it was nice to see these actually in a box. Will come back to etrailer when I need to replace these again, its somewhat of an odd ball size as well so I was glad to find them somewhere in stock.

  • What is the Load Carrying Capacity of a Load Range D 5.30-12 Trailer Tire
    On a single axle using 2 of the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12 Inch White Wheels, # AM30859, the combined weight carrying capacity of the tires would be 2,500 pounds. You would need to add in the weight of the boat, trailer, and anything on them for the gross trailer weight. If it is under 2,500 pounds, then these tires and wheels have enough capacity. You will need to make sure that you inflate the tires to the max psi listed on the tires (105 psi for these tires) in order to...

  • What is the Offset and Backspacing of Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire and Wheel
    The Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire and Wheel, # AM30859, has a zero offset. But it sounds like you are talking about backspacing. The backspacing is 2-1/2 inches. I calculated this by taking the wheel width, 4 inches from bead to bead, then adding 1 inch to account for both lips of the wheel. Take that 5 inches and divide it by 2 to get the backspacing. The width of the tire as mounted on the wheel is 5-1/2 inches and it is 22 inches tall. Offset would be where the mounting and pilot...

  • Speed Rating for a Kenda Wheel and Tire part # AM30859
    Unless otherwise stated, all trailer tires are rated at 65 mph. The Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire # AM30859 is no exception. Trailer tires should always be inflated to their maximum psi rating. With maximum air pressure, the tires will perform and wear better, and will get better gas mileage. If a tire is inflated to a lower air pressure it will reduce the amount of weight that the tire can carry. If a heavier load is put on the trailer tire than what is recommended for that air pressure...

  • How to Pick Out a Replacement Wheel and Tire for an Old Boat Trailer
    To pick out a new wheel and tire for your trailer you will need to know a couple pieces of information. First you will need to know the bolt pattern of your current rims so that you can find a wheel that will bolt right up to your trailer. I attached a help article that details how to find this info. Next you will need the tire size. That should be stamped on the sidewall of the tire. With those two pieces of information you can email me back and I will help you figure out what you would...

  • Replacement Wheel for Starcraft Starmaster XLT 1906 w/ 5.30-12 Tires and 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
    There are two different types of trailer hubs, hub-centric and lug-centric. Hub-centric, which uses wheel bolts to secure the wheel to the hub, requires the center/pilot hole to be exact because that is how the wheel centers on the hub. Where as a lug-centric wheel is centered on the axle using lug nuts therefore the pilot hole isn't as big of a concern. It just has to be large enough to fit on the hub. I have attached a link to all of our 12 inch rims with the 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern...

  • Can Tire Air Pressure in a Trailer Tire be 5 psi Lower than What it is Rated For
    You should always try to inflate a trailer tire to the maximum psi as indicated on the tire. But a difference of just 5 psi is not going to cause any trouble. The issue is that trailer tires are designed with a thicker sidewall than passenger vehicle tires. When under inflated they generate excessive heat and can fail. But this is not an issue at 5 psi under what it is supposed to be. I have included a link to a helpful article on trailer tires for you.

  • Steps to Ensure Maximum Trailer Tire Tread Life
    With any trailer tire, including the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12 inch White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range D, # AM30859, the best way to get the maximum tread life is to keep the tire inflated properly, do not overload the trailer, make sure the tire and wheel are installed correctly, and make sure your bearings are in good shape and properly greased. Any misstep in this list could reduce the life of the tire. I would not recommend using any of the flat fixers as it could...

  • Can You Use a Wheel with a Larger Pilot Hole Diameter on a Trailer
    Most trailer wheels are lug centric and not hub centric meaning that the wheels are centered on the hub with the lug nuts not the pilot hole. This in turn means that the pilot hole of your wheels does not need to match the pilot hole of your hub. However, the pilot hole on the wheels must exceed the pilot hole on the hub. Therefore, you will have no problems using a wheel with a 2.95" or 3.19" pilot hole on your trailer as long as they are lug centric. If you are wanting to upgrade...

  • Difference Between Tire Sizes 4.80-12 and 5.30-12
    A 5.30-12 is a larger version of your 4.80-12. They fit the same wheel size though of 12 inch diameter by 4 inch wide. The 5.30 is 1.5 inches wider and .4 inches taller. The part # AM30859 that you referenced is a 5.30-12.

  • Do Trailer Wheel and Tires Need to be Balanced
    Trailer wheel and tires don't really need to be balanced. Some people go ahead and still do it but the benefits are hard to notice and since trailers suspension is pretty harsh the weights typically end up bouncing off. I wouldn't mess with it honestly. I'd just mount the # AM30859 to your trailer and you'd be good!

  • Should Trailer Tires be Inflated to Max PSI Figure
    Yes, with trailer tires you do need to always keep the tire inflated to it's max PSI rating to ensure you get the full weight capacity of it and minimize heat build up which might cause premature failure. So to ensure you get the full weight capacity of the # AM30859 you'd need to inflate it to 105 PSI when cold.

  • Upgrading from 4.80-12 Trailer Tires
    In order to upgrade from 4.80-12 tires you'll need to determine how much available space you have. The 5.30-12 would be a larger option which is just slightly bigger so there should not be any clearance issues. I recommend the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel part # AM30859.

  • Recommendation of a Bias Trailer Tire with a Speed Rating of 65 MPH
    All the ST trailer tires we currently offer have a speed rating of 65 mph. Special trailer tires are usually rated to operate at a maximum speed of 65 mph. 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 trailer's tires sidewall. The Kenda Bias trailer tire # AM30820 (load range C) and # AM30859 (load range D) are great options and maximum speed rating is 65...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire for a 4x8 Foot Utility Trailer with a Maximum Weight Rating of 1,180 Pounds
    Your trailer should have a placard or sticker on it that will provide the recommended tire size. If it states 4.80/4.00-8 then I recommend Kenda # AM10002 and its maximum load is 590 pounds at 60 psi. Based on your 4x8 utility trailer that has a maximum weight rating of 1,180 pounds you will be just fine hauling your 800 pound motorcycle. Adding bigger tires won't increase the amount of weight you can carry. The overall capacity of this tire-and-wheel assembly is limited to the lowest...

  • Recommended 5.30-12 Tires With Load Rating Of D
    Moving up a higher load range will not only increase your load capacity, but will also increase the sidewall ply strength, so you will be less likely to have a blow out. I recommend the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range D # AM30859 for your application or the galvanized wheel # AM30861. These combinations use the same tire which is rated for 1,250 lb capacity at 105 psi. You want to always run trailer tires at their max psi when inflated while...

  • Changing Boat Tires From Size 5.30-12 to Size 175/80R13
    Provided that you have enough clearance, changing from your Bias 5.30-12 size tire, like part # AM30859, to a Radial 175/80R13, like part # AM31994, could definitely have its advantages and is a good idea. Bias tires are designed for more of an off-road application, like farm use, because they have a much more rigid sidewall. A Radial tire is built so that it has little bit of flex in it to help make the ride a little smoother plus it runs cooler than a Bias. To ensure that the bigger...

  • Will Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire Replace a 5.30x12 Trailer Tire
    First, we do have 5.30x12 tire and wheel combos with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern available. For a load range D it would be # AM30859. This tire and wheel combo is rated for 1,250 pounds at 105 psi. It includes a white steel wheel. The Kenda KR25 ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire, # AM31206, with aluminum wheel is only 0.1 inches wider and 0.6 inches shorter so it will most likely fit. It is rated for 1,220 pounds at 65 psi. I have included links to tire and wheel FAQ articles for you.

Which for that we have two options and they are both Kenda. For a silver wheel (what I would go with) we have the part # AM30861 and for white wheel you would want the part # AM30859.
