Bias Tires vs. Radial Tires

Bias vs. radial tire graphic

Bias ply tires are designed for off-road or agricultural applications. They are built with thick, durable nylon cords that are positioned at a 30- to 45-degree angle to the direction of travel. The layers alternate in a crisscross pattern, making the sidewalls stiffer so that the entire tire is able to flex easily. As a result, the tire provides a smooth ride and improved handling when trailering on uneven surfaces.

Beveled Stud Holes

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

The stud holes on this steel wheel are beveled to ensure that the wheel stays tight against your trailer hub. This also eliminates the need to constantly retorque the lug nuts.

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"

Chinese crap, will see how long it will last before blowing up. The price was affordable for what I was going for. The foot print is narrower than a GoodYear Endurance 205/75/14.


Great wheel and tire combo. Looks great and has nice tread, it's perfect for my trailer. Looks so much better tgan the factory 1986 wheel and tire combo.


I mistakenly ordered the wrong wheel for my trailer and the return fee was way to much. I am stuck with a tire and wheel I can’t use. Should have ordered from someplace that would have accepted a return at no cost!!


Item was great but had to return because trailer purchase didn’t happen. Cost to return was $60 for a $170 item. Ended up selling locally at a significant loss. Make sure there isn’t a possibility you’ll need to return or etrailer will make you pay dearly.


Exactly what I was looking for and it was exactly as shown and described on the website. Product arrived on time and the price was very competitive. I will definitely order from etrailer in the future for my trailer needs.

I bought this rim and tire as a spare for my trailer. I havent had to use it yet thankfully so I cant rate it as far as how its holding up under use. I can say that the quality looks as good as what came on the trailer.

This purchase extended the life of our cargo trailer which has made several long haul trips for us without any issues. The eTrailer experience has been great!


As always great product and communications with etrailer! Have bought many times through them. Fast shipping with fair prices!!


It's a spare trailer tire, so it hasn't been used, but the tire and rim are of good quality and are what I ordered. Competitive prices and quick shipping. would order from them again.


As usual you are telling me my order has been delivered when in fact I have received 4 out of the 6 tires I have paid for. This has happened before and had to wait weeks before I got my complete order.

I am sorry to hear this! Customer Service will be in contact with you.

I'm updating a 16' utility trailer I purchased in 1991. I placed an ordered for five AM3S862 tires and wheels. They arrived in two days and were just perfect to finish the project. I've had the trailer on two short runs for material and it handles great. I will be ordering from again.


Always a good purchasing experience. Good prices and fast delivery.


Delivery was faster then promised
came in time to be used on a trip with no issues
Quality I’ll buy again


This company is the best online retailer that i have ever dealt with. I have made several purchases from them and all have been an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.


#1 This site is dynamite! I needed 6 tires for my Boat Trailer, and I must tell you the information given to my son & I was outstanding. We were able to go to the Boat Dealer handling our "very used trailer" and He was able to give us the useful measurements we needed to get the most accurate tire size.

The Customer Service is OUT of THIS WORLD!!!!!

I wish every Company I encounter would be 1/2 as great as these people!

We got the Tires immediately UPS! I was amazed!

I have already told so many guys about your site and for anyone needing any items associated with TRAILERS, YOU ARE THE FOLKS!!!!

Your site was a fabulous find!

Thank YOU !!!!!!


I would go and get your tires spin balanced. All 5 of mine were out of balance as expected and 60 dollars cured all of that. It will provide for a better ride for your RV and certainly help to eliminate any vibration.

As advertised.


I put these tires on a 1960 utility trailer. It was a former U hall trailer before they went to all metal trailers. It is 5'X 8' with 30" high sides. It's great to move heavy furniture, mulch, and dirt. I needed new tires and rims. I found this website to be informative, easy to order, excellent prices and very fast delivery. I love the look of the new set on the trailer and the ride and tracking is much better. I highly recommend this web site


Great product fast delivery


Easy ordering and fast delivery!!


Arrived quickly and met all expectations. Took advantage of the free shipping, which wasn't cheap for a tire and wheel combo this size and weight. Best deal going in regards to getting a spare tire and wheel for my trailer. Will purchase my next one here too.


Excellent product. Great packaging.


Delivered quickly and at a great price, thank you!


The etrailer website was easy to use. The tires mounted on rims were delivered in days and were ontime, were well packaged, and were what I expected. I would order from etrailer again and recommend them.


The Tire and Rim were received via UPS on schedule. They look great. FYI, it will be used as a spare for my small utility trailer. Unfortunately the trailer is not here so I am unable to verify it fits OK (it should). I will do this in a couple of weeks. Thank you E-Trailer, I had quotes from local tire dealers for nearly double the price you advertised. This was ridiculous, they obviously didn't want to be bothered or do business with me.


The products are good and at a good price. But the shipping was slow to get the product that i ordered. That's why there isn't 5 stars.


I bought these tires & rims for my husband and he is thrilled with them. The quality of both the tire & rims are excellent and we received them very quickly. Now all we have to do is get in the truck & go boating. Thank you!

  • Safe Distance Between Tire and Floor of Trailer when Upgrading to 15 Inch Tires
    The rule of thumb when building a trailer is that you should allow 1.5 inches deflection at rated capacity of the spring for approximate full load dimension ( the spring can flatten out as much as 1-1/2 inches ). Then add 3 inches above tires beyond that point for maximum clearance.

  • How to Pick Out a Replacement 5 Lug Trailer Rim
    The exact information you are looking for I don't have, but I can help you figure out how to get a replacement rim that would work. All we need is two key pieces of information. The bolt pattern and the diameter of the rim. To determine the bolt pattern of the rim check out the FAQ article I attached to the right. To determine the diameter of the wheel the easiest way is to look at the tire size that is stamped on the sidewall of the trailer. The last two numbers will be the diameter...

  • Increasing Weight Capacity of 2012 Jayco X17Z
    Because your set up will only be as strong as its lowest-rated component. You could go with higher rated leaf springs and larger, higher rated wheels/tires, but you'd still be limited by the axle capacity. Therefore, to increase the capacity of your travel trailer, you'll need to replace the axle, springs, hubs, wheels and tires. You'll probably need to relocate the spring hangers. We offer a few off-the shelf replacement axles in standard sizes. If you'd care to reply with the capacity...

  • Are the Trailer Wheel and Tire Combinations Balanced
    The trailer tire and wheel combination # AM3S862 is received from the supplier already with the tire mounted on the wheel. The supplier does not balance the combination, but when the tire is installed to 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. I would recommend to balance the tire and wheel combination at...

  • Increasing Rim/Tire Size From 8 to 12 or 13
    As long as the larger wheel you choose has a compatible bolt pattern with your hub, you have sufficient clearance between the tire and the fender, and you do not exceed the weight capacity of the hub you can switch up to a larger wheel with no problem. If you wanted to go from a hub with a 5 on 4-1/2 to a 5 on 5 bolt pattern I can check for something compatible, if you would provide me with the inner and outer bearing and grease seal reference numbers.

  • Can a Trailer Wheel with Larger Diameter Pilot Hole be Used on the Same Hub
    The pilot hole diameter only matters in one of two scenarios: First, if the wheel secures to the hub using bolts instead of lug nuts then the pilot hole has to be exact because that is how it centers on the hub. Second, if the wheel secures to the hub using lug nuts but the wheel pilot hole is too small, it just will not fit on the hub. Having a larger pilot diameter on a wheel that secures with lug nuts is fine.

  • Can Trailer Wheel with Larger Center Pilot Hole be Used on Hub that Uses Wheel Bolts, Not Lug Nuts
    Actually, no, this is not going to work for you. The problem is that on wheels and hubs that use wheel bolts instead of lug nuts to secure the wheel to the hub, the pilot hole has to be exact because that is how it centers on the hub. Even if it looks like it is all lined up properly it could still be off a little bit because of the larger pilot hole. This will cause some wobbling and lead to tracking problems and premature tire and suspension wear. If you can tell me what the pilot...

  • Availability of 15 Inch Trailer Wheel w/ 2.25 Inch Diameter Pilot Hole
    The only time it's important that the wheel's pilot diameter matches with that of the wheels you're replacing is you have hub-centric wheels currently. A hub centric wheel uses the portion of the hub that extends through the pilot hole of the wheel to center and support the wheel on the hub. A wheel of this type would use flat headed wheel bolts. A lug centric wheel uses the lug bolts to center the wheel. If the lug bolts are coned, like part # RG02-020 then you have a lug centric wheel. So,...

    When you are talking about weight capacity you are limited to the least rated component in your setup. You are correct that the weight capacity of the frame needs to be taken into account as well as using tires, axles, leaf springs, and hubs with higher weight capacities. You can typically find the weight capacity of the frame itself stamped into the frame or on a sticker or label on the frame. The reason that trailer manufacturers can rate their trailer weight capacities a little higher...

  • Are Light Truck Tires Okay to Use on Travel Trailer
    Typically, you'll want to use trailer tires only on a travel trailer but the exception would be some of the larger sizes, like 15 or 16 inch. It's fairly common to use Light Truck tires for the larger sizes because they're more readily available than trailer tires in that size are. I'd recommend you find the ID tag on your travel trailer, which will list the recommended tire size. If they recommend 235/75-15LT, then your current size truck tire is just fine.

  • Changing Kenda Load Range C Trailer Tire To Load Range D
    Before switching to a higher load rated tire, like a load range D or E, you will want to check the weight capacity on your trailer wheels. If you have a steel wheel, the capacity should be stamped on the backside lip of the wheel. If you have an alloy wheel, this rating should be stamped on the back side of the wheel spokes. From the information I was able to obtain, a load range D tire will have a capacity of 2,150 lbs at 65 PSI. Another option would be just to upgrade to a wheel and...

The tire will not be able to seat properly on the rim and you will not be able to keep air in it or safely use it.

  • Upgrading Tires and Wheels on Single Axle Travel Trailer

The larger 225/75-15 would be about 1/2 inch wider and around 28 inches in diameter, which would only use 3/4 to 1 inch of the available 3-1/2 inches of clearance you mentioned.. From the clearances you mentioned, it sounds like the # AM3S862 would work well for you.

  • What is the Closest Trailer Tire in Size to a P235/75-15 Car Tire
    As you probably know, car tires should not be used on a trailer. This is because trailer tires are made with a thicker sidewall to handle more vertical load. Car tires are not built this way so it can lead to blow outs. The closest match to a P235/75-15 car tire would be an ST225/75-15 such as # AM3S862 which has the 5 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern. This is a load range D tire rated for 2,540 pounds at 65 psi. The difference in size between these two tire sizes is minimal. The ST225/75-15 will...

  • Recommended Spare Wheel And Tire For Trailer With 7.60-15 Tires
    I was able to find that the 7.60-15 tires you have on your tear trailer cross reference to the 225/75/15 tires. With that said we have quite a few options with the 225/75/15 tire and a 15" wheel with 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. The most important thing is to find if your current tires are bias ply or radials, and make the spare the same type. Mixing radials and bais ply tires causes a very unstable ride.

    Wheel width can only be measured with the tire off of the wheel. You will measure from bead seat to bead seat. That will be from the inside of the inner wheel flange to the inside of the outer wheel flange, not from edge to edge of the wheel. I have linked a video that should help. If you measure and find you actually have an 7 inch wide wheel then you can use tire # AM10256. Any given tire has a certain range of wheel widths that it will fit.
