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"

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (5971 Customer Reviews)

I run these load stars on my 2 ultralight aircraft trailers.


Received the order today and I must say the ordering, shipping and customer service is outstanding. Now about the product. The galvanized finish on both wheels leaves a lot to be desired. The single tire appears to be slightly deformed but I think that is just from packaging. One of the rims also has a slight bend near the tire bead. The dot code shows that all three tires are at least a year old. I will mount the tires on my trailer next weekend and attempt to have the single tire mounted on my spare wheel. I will give a rating after I see how they work. I'm not trying to be picky but I expected a little better considering they are new.


got exactly what was ordered and the rims had metal valve stems too - a necessary item if your boat trailer has to go through deep sand. Rims came in two in a box with appropriate packaging. Would definately order again


Great tire/wheel combo. Wheels have metal valve stems. Lowest price in the Web!



1-year and still look brand new. Heavy duty tires. The galvanized Rims have no rust whatsoever.


I love the tire. I also like the metal valve stems that you use.


The tires on my Drift Boat trailer were getting checked. Needed new tires and wheels so looked around at the local discount stores and found some that were
OK but load range B. Saw these tires and wheels at Kenda and bought them. They are a load range D with a heavy hot dip galvanized wheel. Perfect for what I needed. The wheels actually look quite nice. New tires on the trailer and off to go fishing. Thanks Kenda.


A while back I purchased a used 5 x 8 trailer. The wheels were starting to rust and the tires were shot! The "tire store" down town wanted a little over $50. to mount a new tire on my rusty wheels....

I happened to find Etrailer on line. I got brand new tires mounted on galvanized wheels for about the same price! They are so easy to deal with! I ended up replacing everything on the trailer (bearings, lights, springs, tires, wheels etc.) from etrailer!

Better sit down for this one: They even called me at home to see how the project was going, and if there was anything else they could do to help....When was the last time someone did that! Certainly not in my lifetime (and I'm over 70!).

It doesn't get any better than this! Go on their website (or call them), get what you need, and be done with it......

Thanks etrailer!



Perfect! Couldnt be better!


Wish they had the aluminum wheels my size but the galvanized wheels look nice and were a perfect fit for my snow bear utility trailer. Ordered over the phone with Ed, very polite and knowledgeable.


Look great and super fast delivery



These are great wheels and tires. Look great and work well for my double wave runner trailer. I highly recommend them.


My first impressions of the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range D - AM30861 are good, everything delivered as expected. Removed old wheels and bolted these on, noticed there is a label recommending to check and re-tighten lug nuts at the first 10-25-50-100 miles. I chose this wheel/tire because it was the highest load rating for my 4'x10' Utility/ATV trailer. I hope the galvanized finish lasts better than paint and I personally think it looks better than painted wheels. I purchased 3 total to have a spare on the trailer and mounted it with a MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier for 3" x 5" Trailer Frames - 4-Lug and 5-Lug Wheels - MT70214. I also purchased a Master Lock Spare Tire Carrier Lock - 262DAT, but unfortunately the bolts were too long on the spare tire carrier and the lock would not fit. Next time I am at the hardware store I will get a shorter bolt so it will fit.


I use my trailer for handyman work, So some days it carries a few sheets of plywood and others 600lbs of roofing. I needed a high load capacity tire package and they look better then my old boat trailer like wheels. I am going to rewire my trailer and guess were I'm shopping for lights you guessed right eetrailer.


The bolt holes were partially blocked by galvanizing material. I had to use a round file to clean them out. That's the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.


5 lug on 4-1/2” bolt pattern worked w/ new 1” thick aluminum adaptor plates that converted obsolete 5 on 5-1/2 to modern 5 on 4-1/2. The new wheels and tires completed my restoration of a 1958 Tee Née boat trailer. Great service high quality product. Your video presentation, of the wheels and tires, was good assurance that we were on the same page before ordering. Thank you etrailer.


The 3.19 center hole was as close as I could find to the 3.25 I needed. Some sanding solved the problem and this will make a great spare for my old Johnson Marine trailer.


Placed my order hoping I would get it in a couple of weeks before I left for Maine.
Instead I got it in a "WEEK", how good is that for customer service! I also ordered the spare tire carrier FSTC1000301which came in the same shipment. I mounted it as you can see and it worked out great. Thanks George


Very good products -service and shipping times. The tire date codes showed recent manufacturing. I never had a problem with their products. Pricing is very good - considering they have professional staff.


great to do business with, great produc ts


Just got these yesterday......dropped off at the gate as requested. Picked them up today. Will put them on my boat trailer in a bit. Might even send a picture as they look good. Price and promptness of delivery was excellent on both counts. Etrailer has yet to fail me and I'm not up to date with reviewing my purchases, but I find no fault with them. Good outfit!


Great wheel and tire combo. After 3,000 miles of use they have held up great with minimal signs of treadwear. Shipping did take a while since they were backordered but aside from that they are great.


OUTSTANDING customer service, communication and EXCELLENT pricing...
Won't shop for trailer tires anywhere else...EVER!
geo and tami


I got the 5.30 X 12 inch tire/wheel combo, load range D, for a small utility trailer, so they are fine for the intended use. The tires are nice but the wheels are chinese made and the galvanized coating is not as nice appearing as other wheels in my garage that are 20+ years old. Like I said, they are going to be fine for the "Old Reliable" trailer on which they are mounted, but I just hope that the galvanized finish stands the test of time. The price was good, with no shipping cost, and was fast on the order and the wheels got here pretty quick....



How did your galvanized coating hold up over time. Do you think the white wheel would have been better?

Rachael H.


Thanks for your feedback Lamar, overall we have received better feedback on the traditional steel wheels that are painted. The galvanized coated wheels have not been as highly rated as the wheels that are likely like your 20 year old wheels in your garage.


Great value,shipping information to keep you informed
Of order @ follow up on my order. 5 star!!!!!!!!!! Thanks



Working out great! I would give five stars rating !!!!!


Prompt service and quality products make it a pleasure to do business with trailer.


Tires work very good. Made trailer pull much better than before. Great quality.


Fast delivery, had tires installed 30 minutes after arrival.... look good... Thanks!!!

  • Recommended PSI Rating for Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire
    You will want to fill the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire # AM30861 to 105 psi since that's what Kenda has the tire rated for. Some people will run tires at a lower psi rating but since Kenda hasn't come out with a listed weight rating per psi rating you'll need to stick with the posted psi on the tire sidewall.

  • Is Kenda 5.30-12 Trailer Tire and Wheel Combo AM30861 Ready To be Bolted On To Trailer?
    You are correct that the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range D # AM30861 you were looking at are indeed ready to be bolted on to your trailer and will not need anything to make them ready to use. Trailer tires do not need to be balanced like vehicle tires due to difference in design and you not being close enough to them to feel any ride quality difference. The only thing you need to do before purchasing this kit is making sure your trailer...

  • Replacement Wheel/Tire for 2006 Fleetwood Yuma Pop Up
    For the wheels and tires you have on your 2006 Fleetwood Yuma the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30861 would bolt right up and be exact size and everything so it would work great. We will have all of the parts needed for your Dexter hub. I attached a video that covers removing everything and inspecting to determine if anything needs to be replaced. This would probably be a good idea considering age of trailer etc.

  • What PSI Should Kenda Trailer Tire and Wheel # AM30861 be Inflated to
    With trailer tires like what comes on the Kenda 5.30-12 part # AM30861 you want to inflate them to the max psi rating of the tire when cold which in this case is 105 psi. This ensures you get the full weight capacity of the tire as well as prevents heat build up which is what causes tire failure.

  • How Long Do Trailer Tires Typically Last
    Trailer tires rarely actually wear out due to mileage. Typically they get old enough that they start to dry rot which turns into leaking and then also can turn into the tire failing on the highway. Right around 6 years is the standard recommended trailer tire life. I attached a help article on trailer tires for you to check out as well.

  • What Pressure Should Trailer Tires be Kept At
    We always recommend to run the maximum air pressure stated on the sidewall of the trailer tire. That is the safest thing to do because then you have the maximum weight capacity covered for any type of load you will be hauling. This prevents heat build up and diminished capacity as well as provides best ride quality for the trailer.

  • What Types of Tires Should be Used on Trailers
    P rated tires are not to be used on a trailer at all. You really need to swap them out for an LT or ST tire size like you mentioned. P mean passenger vehicle, ST means special trailer, and LT means light truck which can be used in trailer applications although generally ST is preferred. I do not know your tire size currently but email me back and I'll recommend you the best option we have.

  • 12 inch Trailer Wheel and Tire Recommendation with 5 on 4-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern that is Galvanized
    We have the part # AM30861 which is a 12 inch trailer wheel that is galvanized that has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and a tire size of 5.30-12. The pilot diameter is 3.19 inches which is larger than the 2.75 inch you mentioned but that should not be an issue as long as your current wheel are held on with lug nuts and not a wheel bolt that threads into the hub. The lug nut setup is way more common so that is most likely what you'd have.

  • Will Kenda Wheel and Tire AM30861 Work Well on Pontoon Boat Trailer
    The Kenda 5.30-12 Wheel and Tire part # AM30861 would be a great option most likely but you need to make sure the tire size and weight capacity match. The tire size is 5.30-12. You would need to check the sidewall of your current tire to determine if that is what you have and what you would need as a replacement. The weight capacity of the tire is 1,250 lbs so you would need to make sure you trailer loaded weighs less than 2,500 lbs.

  • Can Americana Wheel/Tire # AM31215 Be Substituted for Kenda Wheel/Tire # AM30861
    Thank you for your purchases from etrailer! We do not recommend mixing tire sizes, types or load ranges. In the case of the two tire/wheel items you referenced, Kenda # AM30861 D-range bias tire and Americana E-range radial tire # AM31215, you would be mixing two factors, type and load range. The slight difference in overall diameter between the two will not be the primary concern but as this would be a third variable (!) I do not suggest this practice. It is a better idea to replace...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire on a Small Boat Trailer
    You can go either way on this. That being said, if you wanted to go with something bigger, like the Kenda 5.30-12 # AM30861, you will need to measure the spacing you have on the trailer to make sure it will fit. This will have a width of 5.5 inches and a diameter of 21.9 inches. You will need a minimum of 3 inches from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender, and then at least 1.5 inches from the back of the tire to the wall of the fender or the frame. As long as you have the space...

  • 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...

This Kenda bias tire features a Load Range D (maximum 1,250 pounds at 105 psi) and is mounted onto a 12" galvanized steel wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern.

  • 5.30-12 Trailer Wheel and Tire Recommendation for 2,000 lb Boat Trailer
    Going with a higher rated tire capacity than needed doesn't really gain you anything, but since you would be right near the capacity of a Load Range C I would go ahead and go with a Load Range D. 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.

  • Will a 10 Inch Brake Drum Fit Behind 12 Inch Wheels
    A 12 inch wheel like the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30861 that you are looking at is compatible with 7 inch brake drum assemblies. A 10 inch assembly will likely be too large to fit with this 12 inch wheel. If you want to go up to a 13 inch tire and wheel combo I recommend taking a look at the Kenda Karrier ST175/80R13 Radial Tire with 13" Galvanized Wheel # AM31994.

    I suggest going with the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Tire w/ 12" Galvanized Spoke Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - LR D # AM31202 as it has a speed rating of 81 mph and a weight capacity of 1,220 pounds at 65 psi. The galvanized wheel will be corrosion resistant, and the radial tire will stay cooler while driving on the road, so will extend the life of the tire.

    As long as you have at least 2-3 inches from the sidewall to the trailer and at least 4 inches from the tread to the underside of the fender, you will have enough clearance to go with a larger tire and wheel setup. The Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Galvanized Wheel # AM30861 that you mentioned has an of load capacity of 1,250, an outer diameter when inflated of 21.9" and the section width is 5.5".

  • Can ST145R12 Radial Tires Replace 5.30-12 Bias Tires on Boat Trailer
    The difference between the # AM31206HWTB and your current tires is going to be negligible. A Kenda 5.30-12 like the # AM30861 has an outer diameter of 21.9" and section width of 5.5". The Kenda ST145R12 Radial Trailer Tire actually has a smaller outer diameter of 21.3" and a section width of 5.7". This means you will gain 0.3" of clearance on the top and lose 0.1" of clearance on the inside of the tire which won't make a difference. Upgrading to radial tires is definitely a good idea...

  • Product Differences Between Wheel and Tire Package AM30850 and AM30861
    The Difference in these two packages is the tires that are on them. The load ratings are different and thus will each respond different when driving. I suggest going with the tire that your trailer is specified to use. # AM30850 Utilizes a Load Range C tire that has a wheel capacity of 1,045lbs. Max inflation pressure is 80psi, which gives this tire more absorption when driving which will equal a smoother ride. # AM30861 Utilizes a Load Range D tire that has a wheel capacity of 1,250lbs....
