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"

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Kudos to etrailer for this product's availability and speed of delivery. The rims and tires are the finishing touch on my home-built, cedar-stripped, fiberglass encased square drop camp trailer, finished with the new rims and tires just in time to be a Christmas present to my wife for Christmas. They replaced some two-ply bias tires that would not be safe at highway speeds. After thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours building our camper, I wanted to insure that my investment would safely endure the bumps and bruises of American highways. These tires, I believe, will help do that. They are also of a size that allows our scamper camper to slide under our garage door with an inch or two to spare. Any larger and I would have to let out some air. Speaking of spares, I may need to order another. Not because I'm flat, but because these tires are perfect for my needs.

I purchased this Kenda tire and wheel combo as a spare for my Aspen pop-up camper. It now gives me peace of mind as I’ve traveled many miles without one. It matches the existing wheels and tires on the trailer perfectly. etrailer had the best price for this item. I waited a little while for delivery but it was worth the wait. Thanks again etrailer for coming through with the parts I need!

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I’m very pleased with these wheels and tires. These replaced the cheap Walmart wheels and 5.30-12 bias tires. Those bias tires were junk (at least for my setup). I had to replace them everything 3,000 miles. I am hoping that these will perform as well as they look! Also, the wheels are far better quality than I thought they would be. I will definitely have to touch up some trailer paint to match my purty new wheels…

Outstanding quality at a great price!

EXCELLENT customer service. From order to deliver I was kept informed, on the location of my wheels.

After the delivery, it dawned on me I needed a third wheel for the spare. Well, of course not in stock and on back ordered. I was notified right away on how long it would be, based on an estimate from their supplier and even offered a substitute that would fit. I declined the substitute and chose to wait. Glad I did because like the first order, I was kept aware of the status and it turned out to be only two plus weeks.

Highly recommend etrailer

Great wheels I got two of these to upgrade the tires for a 40x48 trailer.
If you are looking for an update I would suggest to go with this.

I wish they would have put the stickers on the back of the rims as the stickers do not come off clean.




by:

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I installed these on a 40" x 48" utility trailer from N.T. They look much better and the tires have a higher speed rating than what came on the trailer. They fit nicely in the fender wells and have no issues with them. I torqued the lug nuts down to 90ftlbs for now and will monitor them. I think 90-100ftlbs should be adequate. Plus now I have a spare just in case it's needed.

The order did take 6 weeks to deliver but it was expected and the staff at etrailer was in contact. Happy with the purchase.

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.

Excellent service from Paul at etrailer. Was able to answer all my questions, made recommendations, and had the order shipped that day. Paul followed up with tracking as promised. The wheels and tires look great!

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Perfect, exactly what I ordered. Arrived promptly and in new condition as expected. The tires even had the correct sidewall specified pressure on arrival.

I’ve done business with etailer before and experienced a manufacturer defect with a product and the issue was resolved and a new product sent the same day. Your outstanding customer service is what keeps me coming back. Thanks for being a customer service oriented business!

The only negative to these wheels is now I need to paint my trailer to keep it from looking like crap!

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I receive the tire and wheel package from Ups in one box. everything was packaged correctly with no damage. I replace the tires and wheels that came with my ultra tow trailer. This package is awesome the tires are about 2"wide and higher the the China bombs! We will be taking the trailer on a trip of 5000 miles later this summer I was concerned with the old tires and wheels I have no concerns with the new package. Oh they also look awesome !

Great service from etrailer, the wheels & tires look great. The only disappointment was the manufacturer put stickers on the face of the wheels that was hard to clean off.

I have had these tires for one year now. The wheels still look great and the tire wear has been excellent. Tires seem to be real smooth while towing down the highway. Highly recommend them.

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Purchased a tire and wheel package to replace same, on a motorcycle towed trailer. My tires arrived already mounted on the wheels, making for a very simple swap out on the trailer. Thank you e-trailer for a painless shopping experience. I have no doubt that the radial tires will track and wear much better than the old two ply tires.

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Purchased two tire and wheel sets to replace a Load Star bias wheel and tire on my Peterson boat trailer prior to a long trip. The wheels appeared well made and good quality, and after riding a in the rain showed very little to no road dirt. Trip included four hours each way on interstate at 70 mph. The tires worked extremely well – less trailer wobble at speed, smoother trailering, improved handling of pot holes and road bumps, less perceived rolling resistance, less road noise, improved MPG (about 1.5 mph from prior trip), and a better trailering experience. The ordering experience from etrailer.com was excellent. The order shipped immediately. I was well informed during each step. The set was delivered neatly in a well packed box and was ahead of schedule.

Thank you for the prompt delivery of the spare tire/wheel I ordered for my double triton pwc trailer.
I am headed out on a trip next week and wanted to make sure I had a spare tire for the trailer with me just in case.I ordered it a little late and was not sure it would arrive in time. But etrailer.com shipped it immediately and it arrived in a couple days, exactly 1 week before my trip. A perfect fit and look also!
Thank you etrailer.com

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


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.

Outstanding. Ran the same set for the entire year with very little tread wear.

Beautiful wheel for my Aluma TK1 trailer. I need a spare and wanted an aluminum wheel that closely matched my present wheels. Shipping was very fast and wheel/tire combo arrived boxed to prevent damage. Very satisfied.

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Hello, after finishing installing spare tire rack, I end up with a problem, I will need to different size of wrenches. The nuts that came in kit are to small simply because of aluminum rim deep holes!
By the video this is a set up for a flat steel rim,
I was wondering if you could provide longer nuts for the aluminum rim.
I'm send you at least 2 photos to help explaining my problem.
I believe this rack may not be the most proper for this kind of rim, thank you


Comments
Because the vast majority of folks use a steel wheel for their spare tires, neither we nor Dutton-Lainson have a readily available off-the-shelf solution for your issue, but I believe I have a solution for you. Your best bet would be to use a longer carriage bolt, along with a nylon fender washer followed by a steel washer secured by the nut. The nylon fender washer will prevent the steel washer and nut from scratching that nice aluminum rim. Youll want the washers to be larger in diameter than the hole. I ran this by the folks at Dutton-Lainson, and they agreed that it sounded like a good solution.

Review from a similar Karrier Aluminum in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Nice tires and rims!! They came in a timely manner. They were bolt on ready. (minus the dang little warning stickers that leave goop wherever they were stuck) When ordering, I paid attention to the Load Rating. Never even thought that they would be SPEED rated?!?! So, I purchased tires that are rated at 65 MPH! But they have the correct Load Rating!! So, just a heads up, don’t make my mistake. check the Load AND Speed ratings BEFORE you buy!!! etrailers updates and follow up are excellent. Since the Speed Rating was my mistake, I did not check in with Customer Service. But my guess would be, based upon current experience, Customer Service is problem just as good as the rest of the services!

  • Recommended 16 Inch Aluminum Wheel with 3,960 lb Capacity
    The Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Aluminum Wheel with Offset - 8 on 6-1/2 - LR E # AM32742 is restricted to the 3,640 lbs capacity by the tire. The wheel itself is rated higher at 3,960 lbs capacity. Unfortunately we do not carry that wheel by itself. We do have other spoke wheel options, but the closest look # AM22691 is rated for 3,200 lbs capacity. My recommendation for your capacity is the Aluminum Bearcat Trailer Wheel - Silver # 274-000039.

  • 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. The # AM32742, # AM32739, and the # AM32764 tire and wheel combinations will all have the maximum load...

    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. This does not completely balance the tire and wheel combination but it does eliminate any excessive out of balance condition. In most cases this method of lining up the high and low...
