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.

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"

Kenda KR25 Radial Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum HWT Black Wheel - 4 on 4 - Load Range D - AM31208HWTB

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (536 Customer Reviews)

Radial tire has a ply rating of 8 and a 1,220-lb maximum load at 65 psi. The 12" diameter x 4" wide aluminum trailer wheel with black interior features a 4 on 4 bolt pattern and is corrosion resistant.

- AM31208HWTB

Upgraded my Ultra-Tow aluminum utility trailer. Excellent wheel/tire combo and great improvement from the white stock steel powder coated wheels. Can also now fit my 3/8" Pewag security chains through the wheel cut-outs. Shipped in expected time frame and packaged in a manner that prevented any damage. Only complaint is the oval label stuck on the face of the wheel. It warns you to only use soap & water and not chemicals on the wheel but the adhesive used for the label is so strong I had to use the chemical Goo Gone to remove the residue, talk about irony. They could have stuck this label on the back side of the wheel or use a less aggressive adhesive.

- AM31208HWTB

The wheels look great and fit perfectly. Can’t wait to try them on the open road. Thought they were easy to order and shipping was pretty quick. I think the price was good as well.

- AM31208HWTB

The rims and tires is 5 stars, I am disappointed with the ship time. It shouldn’t take 2 weeks to ship something, if you have these items on stock.

- AM31208HWTB

Awesome informative website, provided everything that I needed to make the right decision. I just came back from a 2700+ mile trip to fish the Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship and my kayak trailer tracked perfectly. At times I would forget it was back there. My order was confirmed and shipped within a short time and received in just a few days. I will be a return customer.

- AM31208HWTB

Tires and rims look great on my little boat trailer. The tires are larger than my old ones that were in really bad shape and fit great. It really updates the look of a 20 year old trailer and sail boat!

- AM31208HWTB

Exactly what I needed

- AM31208HWTB

Finished product with wheels and tires purchased from etrailer. Extremely pleased with your products and service. Thank you.

- AM31208HWTB

These tires were the perfect replacement for my old outdated cracked tires. The money I spent has eliminated my fear of a blow-out that was always on my mind with the old ones. Great service and rapid shipping; no complaints here!

- AM31208HWTB

Looks great, handles even better than they look...

- AM31208HWTB

After an number of blowouts with Bias Ply load range C tires on our Pop Up, we switched to these Radials rated at load range D - and have zero issues over 10k miles towing. They hold air pressure longer, ride/tow better, and show little wear after a busy season of towing in all conditions - from 100deg in the desert to -15deg @11,000'+ elevation. 6500 mile cross country trip with no issues, and no loss of air pressure over the trip...

Great - Tires now have about 15k with zero issues.

Very happy to find a radial tire to replace the 5.3x12 bias ply tires that were on my 4x6 cargo trailer. Weight and speed ratings will be perfect for hwy travel. Should work great for a cross country move.

- AM31208HWTB

The wheels and tires are perfect! Got them very quickly and they look great on the trailer.

- AM31208HWTB

The tires and wheels look way more appealing than I anticipated. I haven't had a chance to put them on the road yet other than to make sur they fit. They are going on a Dutchmen tent trailer that is getting renovations. I will send pictures of the finished trailer in the near future. (The tie and wheel look so good, that I will be ordering another soon for the spare.) Extremely pleased!!!

- AM31208HWTB

These were the perfect solutions for me, they look awesome and have had no issues

- AM31208HWTB

These wheels and tires are great looking and with a D rating, I couldn't pass them up. Now I need to get wheel locks!! Great value and great customer service. Thanks

- AM31208HWTB

Excellent tire rim combo.We bought to replace old bias type trailer tires on a small motorcycle cargo trailer.They were used from 50 to 90 degree temps,light to heavy rain and some very bumpy roads up to 75 MPH speeds. would recommend

We have these mounted on a small motorcycle trailer which only weighs about 250 lbs. fully loaded.We have used them quite a bit,over 3000 miles on a single trip with no issues at all.I try to keep my speeds down when using the trailer but some times passing trucks and slower vehicles we have run up to 75 mph with no issues.I dont see any heat build up because the trailer is so light.It holds the road under all conditions with these tires.ETRAILER is a great company to work with as usual!

Very quick delivery. They seem like good quality and look very good. Here are before and after photos.

To dress up my pull-behind motorcycle trailer, I purchased these wheels, tires and lugnuts. The trailer looks awesome and tows perfectly. I would definitely purchase these again.

- AM31208HWTB

Not yet on trailer, but great looking and reasonable pricing.

This tires are great. I did a little over 7000 miles last year still look new. track great.

  • Should Factory Bias-Ply Tires Be Replaced With Kenda # KR25 Radial Tires
    Yes, replacing your bias ply tires for Kenda KR25 # AM31208HWTB is a good move with regard to the safety of your cargo trailer and you on your motorcycle. As long as your radial tires are properly inflated, the radial tires will have improved traction and better tread wear which in turn will give you a more stable ride. The main difference between bias ply and radial tires is the construction of the tire and the usage applications. Bias ply tires have stiffer sidewalls and might be used...

    The Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut, # 12CLN, will work well with the # AM32108HWTB that you purchased. This lug nut is 1/2 inch-20 threads per inch. These lug nuts are chrome to give a nice aesthetic look with your wheels and to help resist rust.

  • Trailer Tires Keep Blowing Out on a Boat Trailer
    Part # AM31208HWTB is our part number for the Kenda KR25 tire mounted on the HWT Aluminum wheel. There are several reasons why a trailer tire could fail. Since you mentioned the trailer is not overloaded we can rule that out. You also mentioned high speed trips. Few if any 12 inch trailer tires are rated for higher speeds than 65 miles per hour. The faster you go, the more heat is generated. Heat is the number one enemy of the tire. Trailer tires are also made with a thicker sidewall...

  • 12 inch Trailer Wheel and Tire with over 80 MPH Speed Rating
    The speed rating of the tire on the part # AM31208HWTB is 65 mph. In the 12 inch wheel diameter there are only tires rated for 65. If you can go up a size then you can get into the higher speed ratings unless you want to go bias with a Taskmaster part # TTWAS53012WS45HP which has an 81 mph speed rating.

  • Adding Off Road Tires to a Trailer That Has Standard Tires
    With the standard 4.80-12 tire having a section width of 4.7 inches and the Arisun LHAWG125JL12MB having a section width of 10 1/2 inches, it would exceed the space you have on the trailer. That being said, if you wanted to go with this tire and wheel combo, there is a solution to get the added room. The Timbren Axle-Less Suspension set up # ASR1200S01 is specifically designed to be used with larger, beefier off road style tires. As this would replace your current axle, you should check...

  • Can I Upgrade My Trailer Wheels From 8 Inch To 12 Inch?
    There are a couple factors that play a part in if you are able to swap your tires from 8 inches to 12 inch. If you're running an 8 inch wheel odds are that you have a single axle trailer so that shouldn't be an issue. If you have fenders on your trailer you may need to remove them. If that isn't a problem then you have two bolt pattern options. 5 on 4-1/2 or 4 on 4. Both bolt pattern options will have an overall diameter of 21.3 inches so you can use that to see how much height you...
