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"

Video Transcript for Kenda Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - AM32742 Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number Am32742. This is the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Aluminum Wheel. It's going to have the 8 on 6-1/2 pattern. What that means is we're going to have 8 bolt holes here on the aluminum wheel. They're going to measure 6 1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of the other going straight across from one another. This is a special trailer radial tire with a nice special trailer tire design. It's going to couples the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire.

It is created specifically for trailers and not intended for use on other vehicles. It's going to feature double steel belts and full nylon plies that combine for superior function and long life. It's also going to feature a computer-generated tread design and premium rubber-compound materials, that are going to offer superior traction in wet or dry conditions. The aluminum wheel is by Americana, it's going to be very durable and rustproof. It also has that attractive "star" spoke pattern. That's a really nice feature to have as well, it gives that a really nice look. It's going to feature a positive offset that's going to ensures that the wheel is positioned closer to the trailer frame.

The tire-and-wheel assembly meets the Department of Transportation specifications. The rim dimensions are going to measure 16" x 7". Again, it's going to have the bolt pattern of 8 on 6-1/2". The wheels going to have a capacity of 3,200 lbs at 110 psi. With a wheel log size of 1/2" and/or 9/16"-18. The pilot diameter which is the center hole, this portion here, measuring from inside edge to inside edge is going to measure a 5.15".

It's going to give us +5 mm offset. That's going to be the mounting surface of the wheel. It's going to sit outside of the rim center line. Again that's going to be 5 mm. The actual tire is going to have a tire size of ST235/85R16. With the section width measuring from outer edge to outer edge of 9.37".

Now, the outer diameter of the tire measuring from the bottom to the top or from edge to edge when fully inflated, is going to measure 31.61". The tire capacity is going to have a load range of E with a 10 ply rating. It's going to have a maximum load of 3,640 lbs at 95 psi. It's going to have all the indicators here listed on the outer wall of the tire. That way you can always use that as a quick reference guide if you ever need any of that information. That's going to do it for today's review of part number Am32742. This is the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Aluminum Wheel. .

The wheel and tire combo arrived quickly and the quality looks excellent. The finish on the wheel was smooth and had no scratches. It SHOULD be mentioned in the description of wheel that a very long lug nut is required. I had ordered the AM90054 nut not knowing the rim would need the AM90070 nut. Now paying extra for the purchase and shipping of the longer nut. 46978

First off what can i say, Kudos to George and staff. The tires and rims that i order are not like the photo. They look a lot BETTER. They ride great on my boat trailer. I have a 2010 avalanche with the 5 spoke polished aluminium rims, almost a perfect match. I received them in an expeditious manner. I Also purchased the matching chrome lugs nuts. I am also going to get the chrome Bearings Buddy Bearing Protectors. Received a lot of complement from friends and neighbors who saw the old white rims, and they really like the new ones. First thing they say is that they match the truck rims (Ya) (Boat is white with gray silver metallic trim) Perfect match. ENOUGH SAID ....... 471440

They are aluminum wheels and seem to be well-made. Here is a hint, though. The holes are too small for the two automotive lug wrenches I tried. I tried a 13/16" Spark Plug socket but it was too weak and deformed (if you try that and don't deform it you may not be putting enough torque on it). I bought a 13/16", 6-Point, 3/8" Drive Socket from Sears which works fine. 220327

I purchased the Karrier Aluminum wheel & Kenda tire package as a spare for my Trillium 1300. It appears to be of good quality, the price was competitive and the wheel and tire arrived promptly. I fortunately have not had to use the spare yet, but if and when I do, I am sure that it will perform as required. 442773


Comments
This spare tire and wheel is a great product at a competitive price and although I have not had a chance to use it, I am sure that it will fit the purpose just fine.

Great tire and rims look good too. Use them for mostly short local fishing trips but used them a 1,000 mile round trip to Canada this past summer. Much better and smoother ride than the factory bias ply tires. Looking for something reliable give these a shot. Spend a little extra money you won't be disappointed.

The tires arrived sooner than promised, and were every bit as good as I was expecting. The quality of the wheels are very good. It has a really nice finish, and complements the boat trailer very well. The tires give a nice smooth ride and track good behind the vehicle. 696478

I had a flat on my boat trailer returning home from a Minnesota walleye fishing trip. A few of the guys I was fishing with told me about E Trailer and how great they were so I called them to order this new tire & rim combo. The product shipped the day I ordered it and arrived the next morning via UPS. I was able to mount the new tire & rim, seems to fit well only problem is that I don't have correct lug bolts which I ordered and those shipped same day and are delivering next day. Overall I would highly recommend this company, the people are really friendly, helpful if you aren't 100% sure of exactly what you need. Heidi, Judy and Kevin all helped me with my orders and they were really great folks. I'm ordering rest of my boat trailer tires from this company from now on. 567327

I recently ordered this wheel/tire combo to spruce up my Coleman Fleetwood Mesa popup camper. They look great and the fitment is superb. I ordered 10 AM90070 lug nuts (which are needed) and some center caps LHCS102 to help complete the look and finish. Unfortunately the center caps didn't have the snap-in plugs which are supposed to be included, but I've contacted etrailer and I'm sure they'll get me some. 718067

After asking all local tire shops about Load D 13" tires and being told they don't have and can't get. I looked them up online and found them here and purchased them. Etrailer.com upgraded my shipping for free and I had them at my door in 2 days! I got them installed and they look and ride great! And the price was way better than I thought it was going to be, Thanks Etrailer.com I will reccomend your site to everyone! Chris W. 43324

I recently replace galvanized rims and tires on my boat trailer with the Karrier radial tires and aluminum 5 spoke wheel. I also purchased the stainless lugs and stainless center hub to complete the look! The items were shipped in sturdy protective boxes that held 2 tires each, and the products were flawless and very good quality. The other reason for the change, is when launching a boat in salt water, this product will protect your studs, hubs and resist the rust that occurs very quickly in this environment, it also protects barren cap lubrication area. I would highly recommend etrailer.com. great website and very knowledgeable staff. 562199

Wanted to let you know the tires arrived today. They look great. The only issue is that the holes around the lug nuts are not large enough to allow a 13/16 impact socket to pass through. Standard lug nuts are too shallow. I suggest you suggest to buyers they purchase a set of chrome lug nuts that are long enough to protrude 3/4 inches past the hole so a socket can easily be connected. Attached is a photo of the lug nuts as well as a shot of my finished Acme Tow Dolly trailer. Thanks again for the speedy shipment. 485295

I wanted to upgrade the wheels on my RV trailer. I did my research on the internet and I found these good-looking wheels that were matching all the dimensional numbers and had an improved load range (upgrade from C to D). As soon as I placed the order, George kept me informed about the status, all the way until they were delivered to my home. The same evening I put them on my SCAMP trailer and they look awesome. Even my wife was impressed once she saw them installed. 241277

I am very happy with the quality and look of my new tires and rims. Although there were some problems with receiving the correct rim, which had to be shipped back. The new rim and tire was shipped very quickly and I received it in less than a week. I have purchased other product from Etrailer and haven't had any problems. I would certainly recommend Etrailer and would go back to them when needed 247847

Delivery was prompt. I also bought stainless steel hub covers and SS lug nuts to match. I mounted a pair on my camper for a 1500 mile mountain trip. Every time I stopped, they were barely warm. The trailer tracked well and rode smoothly, which minimized trailer induced motion in my tow vehicle. etrailer weight matches the tires and wheels, and my local tire shop only had to balance one of the three (I ordered a spare). I have no complaints and would order again. 45603

I give it 5 stars based of off the ease of working with etrailer and the look of these wheels. I have had to replace tires every time I have made a coast to coast run. This is with the trailer at 80 % of its max load. I am hoping that these load D tires will carry the load. I will update my review when I return. 516463

    The Karrier ST235/85R16 tire and wheel combination, # AM32742, is received from our supplier with the tire mounted on the wheel, the supplier does not balance the combination, but when the tire is installed on the wheel they will line the high (heavy) spot on the tire with the low (light) spot on the wheel.

  • 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.
