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"

So far I’m happy with etrailer. Ordered wheel and tires beginning of may and they didn’t have all of them in stock so after waiting till last Monday I rechecked to see what they had and they had these in stock. Changed my order last Monday which was a holiday and still received them on Friday same week. So far trailer pulls great but will know better when I get a good 5-6 tons on them to really know for sure.

- AM32743B

I bought this tire and wheel to be used as a spare for a new trailer. Arrived a day earlier than expected. I love a company that is driven by great price and service. Step up and help this company thrive

The Kenda tire was installed on my equipment trailer and has endured over 10,600 miles flawlessly and no signs of wear from the heat of AZ sun. I’m usually moving 10-12K machine on a daily basis. When it comes time to replace I’ll be looking for a set of these tires again.

Fast shipping!!! I didn't have a single issue with my order. Everything arrived on time. Customer service is also fantastic. I have been looking for a while now for wheels that I could put on my 1955 chevy 3600 and these fit great.

- AM32743B

Product is great, but service is better! My original order for a set of wheels and tires was back-ordered. So, I called in to see if I could swap the product and get something available now. When I called in, I was told that the replacement set would be shipped out the next day. The issue was that I was going to be out of town the rest of the week. She offered to put the order on hold, reserve the product and ship out first thing monday morning. Well, I received the wheels and tires today, couldn't be more satisfied with both the wheels and tires, but the service especially.

- AM32743B

I ordered this on a Wednesday and got it by Friday that was awesome. The only thing I wish was that I could have found this tire and rim combo with a ST235/80R16 with Black Mod 8 lug

- AM32743B

This was my first experience with etrailer and I have to say it was a pleasant one. I ordered six tires on rims and the delivery was fast. Rims and tires were exactly as described and fit perfectly on my Dexter torsion axles. I have always had good luck with Kenda tires and have never had any blowouts or abnormal ride/wear issues in the past. I am very satisfied so far.

- AM32743B

Purchased a used 1101 military trailer and needed new tires and wheels to replace the 8 lug military tires and wheels. The new wheels worked perfectly and looked great. The tires lowered the overall height of the trailer in order to make it easier to tow on my truck.

- AM32743B

Great customer service and shipping.

- AM32743B

Wheels and tires arrived very fast and look great with no flaws. The weight rating for each wheel and tire is 3650 at 95 psi.

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

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...

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

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.

    You are 100% correct! The closest match and best option to upgrade your 7.50-16 LT bias ply tires (like # AM10423), is going to be an ST235/85-16 radial tire, like the Kenda Karrier # AM32743B you were checking out.

  • Upgrading Trailer Wheels to a Bigger Size than Stock
    When upgrading your wheels to a bigger size it is crucial to make sure the bolt pattern in the same on the new wheels compared to the old wheels. To measure the lug pattern measure between the lug nuts and count how many lug nuts you have to make sure you order the correct wheels. Kenda Karrier # AM32743B is one of the most common 16x6 inch wheel and tire combos. Another common problem when going with a bigger wheel and tire is going to be lack of clearance in the wheel wells.

  • Does the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Wheel Come Mounted and Balanced
    Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel # AM32743B undergoes a type of balancing by the manufacturer. Before the tires are mounted on the wheels the manufacturer lines up the light spot on the wheel with the heavy spot on the tire. After mounting the tires are not balanced beyond this. If you want the tire balanced further a tire shop would have to put the tires on a balancing machine and add weights as needed.

  • Looking For 235/60-16 Tire Mounted on Dual Trailer Wheel
    The Kenda Karrier 235/80-16 wheel/tire combo you specified, part # AM32743B would have a zero offset, like most trailer wheels do. The only wheel/tire combo we offer in the 235/80-16 tire size on a dual wheel we offer is part # TTWA16RG488 from Taskmaster. The silver wheel has a 5.35 inch offset with an 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The tire is a load range G with the equivalent of a 14 ply rating, good for up to 3860 lbs at 110 psi. Unfortunately, we don't offer a black painted or powder...

  • Can I Upgrade Trailer Axle From 3,500 lb to 7,000 lb Axle and Keep 14 Wheels
    You can add a heavier axle to the trailer but the rest of the components of your trailer may not be rated for a higher weight capacity such as the suspension components and wheels. If you go from a 3,500 lb axle to a 7,000 lb axle like part # 8327834 you are not going to be able to keep your wheels because more than likely the bearings in the hubs that fit your wheels will not fit the spindle of the new axle. Also the wheels are more than likely not rated for the 7,000 lb trailer weight....

  • What are the Tire Pressure Ratings for ST235/85-16 Trailer Tires?
    The ST235/85-16 tires that we provide all have maximum psi ratings of 80, 95 or 110 dependent on the load rating. For example, the load-range G Provider Radial Trailer Tire, # TTWPRG235R16, has a maximum load rating of 4,080 lbs at 110 psi while the load-range E Kenda Karrier Radial Trailer Tire, # AM32743B, has a max load rating of 3,640 lbs at 80 psi. You should go with the maximum psi that your tire's manufacturer felt was appropriate for your tire.

    I can tell you how to determine if the Kenda Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Black Mod Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 # AM32743B will fit your trailer, but we wouldn't have any way of knowing as tires and wheels aren't specific to trailer brands.
