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"

Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" White Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 - Load Range E - AM32739

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (2812 Customer Reviews)

Radial tire has a ply rating of 10 and a 3,640-lb maximum load at 95 psi. The 16" diameter x 6" wide steel trailer wheel features an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern and a corrosion-resistant powder coat finish.

I received the order on time. The tires were not damaged. I took the tires to get them balanced and things balanced out well. The tires were as described. My first impression was that the tread wasn’t very deep. The old tires I removed had deeper tread. The old tires were light truck tires and the new tires were trailer tires so that may explain why there is a difference. The trailer has been on a couple trips and we haven’t had any problems yet. I put them on my fifth wheel and it is around 12k dry and loaded around 14k. From what I can tell, these are an affordable replacement if you have old tires and rims and need a replacement.

Everything is still working out great! No troubles to speak of...

excellent trailer tires and wheels

Excellent service, rapid delivery!

- AM32739

Fifth wheel trailers seem to be a mystery to the people that sell them. I had a lot of questions about the tires that are on my trailer and I never got an answer until I found etrailer. The tire and wheel I bought from etrailer is a spare that I hope to never have to use, but the information I have gleaned from their website has been invaluable. My product was easy to order , was delivered quickly and at a fair price. "I'll be back" thank you

- AM32739

I’m very happy with the quality of this product. Fit and finish are exceptional. etrailer delivers again with quality and price.

- AM32739

As ordered. Received with some scuffs oh the wheel from shipping. Not a big issue as this is a spare. Tire itself appears to be good quality. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase and the service I received. I'm sure I will be back in the future.

Great service products that I purchased are good quality and installation was easy

Awesome Service on this one! The product got here in time and wrapped! The price was great! I strongly recommend this company! Rhody the Roofer

tires and wheels are satisfactory. The only problem i did have was they do not come balanced.

Most trailer tires arent balanced!If that was your only problem...you could of been decent enough to give these folks more stars!And, for the 100bucks a wheel you saved....you could of taken them to a tire shop or service station and, had em balanced for 5-10bucks ea.!

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I ordered these to place on my boat trailer. I used them on my 2012 Trailstar trailer which carries my Tracker bass boat. It had load range C tires. I wanted to upgrade my tires and this item was exactly what I wanted. These fit perfectly. The tires were “fresh”....meaning that they were made only a months ago. The finish on the rims was much better than I was expecting. The welds on the back side of the rims looks to me to be quality work.

It’s been a year and I have absolutely no complaints. I would definitely purchase these again.

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

The tire and wheel assemblies look good. I haven’t pulled the trailer yet so this isn’t an in-use review. I couldn’t give them 5 stars because one of the assemblies needed 4 1/2 ounces of wheel weights to balance. To those of you that would argue they don’t require balancing I say this...if it rotates, if it spins it needs to be balanced! Great prices, excellent shipping services. You can’t go wrong.

Have 6000 miles on these tires now and they are wearing and riding well. I tow at 70 MPH so I balanced the tire and wheel assemblies when new.

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Have only put a few hundred miles on them so far, but they seem like quality tires and rims. Order fulfillment and shipping was super quick -- faster than what was estimated when I ordered. I appreciated the quick delivery so I could put them on before a trip.

Its been a year, and theyre in great condition. Was surprised this spring that after sitting in storage all winter, the tire pressure was still right on. Must have a darn good seal.

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I purchased Loadstar 5.30 12 Bias Trailer Tire 5 on 4 1/2 Load Range C . I failed to notice that it was a Bias Ply which only has a Load Range C at 65 mph. I got back with etrailer for a refund and replace them with a 175 13 Radial that has a Load Range D at 81 mph . It was a hassle free Exchange. Of course they deducted shipping on my refund. Make sure that's the item you want it will save you on shipping cost on your return. Overall I'm very happy with the Tires and rims and they fit perfectly. Very good customer service. I received them in three days. I would recommend this company. 5

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Great products and very good prices on quality tire. Quick shipment and boxed very nicely. Fit on trailer hub perfectly. Videos really helped me measure hub lugs and explain ply difference and load range differences. I have a better product which will haul more. I will be buying a hitch and wiring for another car and the videos show me how easy it is to install. Companies around here want up to $400.00 to install. Thanks for the service will be back

The tires are perfect on my trailer. Hardly ever lose air and so trilled to have good rubber when I go across town. Really easy process on buying tires with a rim. No waiting at store installer and helped me learn to change my own tire. I tell people even lately about this business and how wonderful the experience has been. I used to have a raggedy $150.00 yard trailer someone built and neighbors would borrow until last neighbor called and told me he arrived with only the hitch clasp. Bought me a good trailer later and updated the wheels and tires and don’t worry about accidents so much when pulling a load. Thanks for helping me improve my responsibilities towards others on the road

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

I needed a spare tire for my yacht club trailer, it was an odd size and you guys had it right in line as I browsed down the wheel sizes on your site, including shipping I got it cheaper than going to the local Marine dealer. Now I need summer to get here.

Needed a spare since purchase of boat, many different tire a d rim sizes on trailers, found the correct one on your site, hole pattern and dimensions were right on.

I'm happy with the Radial Tire and Galvanized Wheel package etrailer helped me with. Between the pictures and video of the product on the website, multiple questions submitted and answers received (even though I interfaced with multiple agents on the phone and email, they're all up to speed on customer information), packaging, product quality, price, ease of purchase, and follow up after receiving the delivery(which was prompt), It's been an excellent experience! I will use etrailer again for future purchases and recommend as first choice!

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Tires & rims arrived the next day after placing the order the night before. I was actually caught off guard as I did not expect them to arrive till Monday. Installed them on the trailer later that day. No surprises and they fit perfectly. Old tires were cracked and the rims were in bad shape. New wheels look great !! Very pleased.

No issues, tires and rims working out very well

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

The tires are a great upgrade to the standard "Carry On" trailer tire. Made a few modifications to the fender well and the results were what I was looking for. We've have taken my homemade square-drop camper out a few times now and rides really well.

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Had a difficult time finding trailer tires with the correct load rating locally. Placed my order on Saturday night and the tires and wheels were in my doorstep the following Tuesday! Very happy with the product, love how the wheels are powder coated and not painted. Look great on the boat trailer!

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

If you're on the fence, just buy them! I got these to replace the bias 4.80-12 tires that came with the trailer. These are light years better. They have a modern automotive style tread, plus they are M speed (81MPH) rated! The gloss black wheels look cool too. They have a much wider and flatter contact pattern with the ground, and while slightly larger diameter, they fit the stock 12" wheel fender perfectly. I've got a lot more peace of mind towing my utility trailer at highway speeds now.

Review from a similar Karrier Steel in Trailer Tires and Wheels

Using as a spare tire for my 21ft travel trailer that did not come with a spare tire. I like the look of the black mod wheel as it goes with the colors of my camper, although I will put a tire cover on it to extend its life. The tire itself is the same brand as what is on my camper now, just a different model, but it's a spare. I did have to touch up some paint though on the lip of the rim as it was scratched on arrival, but not enough that a cue tip and some paint couldn't fix. I would buy again.

Luckily I havent had to use it, but tire and wheel is still in good shape and there if I need it. But I hope not.

  • What is the Correct Inflation for Karrier Trailer Tire # AM32739 and is it Mounted and Balanced
    The tire, # AM32739, should be inflated to 95 psi regardless of load size. The problem is that under inflating a trailer tire will lead to degradation of the tire. On trailer tires, the side walls are thicker than on car tires so they can handle more vertical load. An under inflated tires side walls will heat up more often and quicker and will lead to early wear and possible failure of the tire.

  • Recommended Tires and Wheels to Replace 8.75 x 16.5 Trailer Tires
    To replace the 8.75 x 16.5 tires on your trailer, I recommend going with an ST235/85R16 size, which will be the closest to what you have but on a 16 inch wheel. The lowest load rating we have available for this size is a Load Range E. If the hubs on your trailer have an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern, I recommend the Kenda Karrier Radial Trailer Tire with 16 Inch White Wheel # AM32739. If your hubs instead have a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern, then you will want the Kenda Karrier tire...

  • Tire and Wheel Combinations Weight Capacity and Tire Pressure the Same as Trailer Tire # AM10295
    The # AM10295 tire was designed for an 8 lug wheel, but will also fit a 6 lug wheel. This will change the weight capacity of the tire and wheel combination to the lowest rated item in the setup, but the recommended tire pressure of the tire will remain the same. What you will want to do is to make sure that the valve stem used in the setup is a metal 100+psi valve stem like # AM20906.

    Raising a trailer by increasing the tire and wheel size isn't the most effective method. Your current tires are about 28.3 inches in diameter. Larger ST235/85 R16 size tires have a diameter of about 31.7 inches. Almost 3-1/2 inches difference. However, they aren't going to raise your trailer anymore than maybe an 1-1/2 inches or so at the most.

  • Is There a 12 Inch Brake Drum for a Dexter #84 Spindle Available?
    The #84 spindle from Dexter will limit the diameter of the brake drum to 10 inches, so this will not work with a 12 inch diameter brake, unfortunately. 12 inch brakes are generally fitted to 5,200 to 7,000 pound axles, which will typically have a much larger inner bearing. These will also use the 8 on 6 1/2 bolt pattern for the wheels.
