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 Review of Kenda Trailer Tires and Wheels - Karrier ST235/80R16 LR G Radial Aluminum Wheel - KE83JR

Hi everybody, Andy here with Let's take a brief look at this Kenda Carrier ST235/80R16 Load Range G Radial Trailer Tire with a 16" aluminum wheel with an 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern. This tire and wheel assembly is gonna be great for your boat trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers and campers. This special trailer tire or ST tire has sturdy sidewalls so that it can handle heavy loads. It is created specifically for trailers and not intended for use on other vehicles. As you know, radial ply tires are designed for trailers that are towed on the highway and this radial tire is constructed with double steel belts and full nylon ply that combine for superior function and long life.

The computer generated tread design and premium rubber compound materials are gonna give you superior traction in wet or dry conditions. Now as I mentioned, this tire, as we see stamped here is an ST235/80R16, and the section width is 9.2" and the outer diameter is 30.7". This is a load range G tire, meaning it has a 14 ply rating. The maximum load is 4,080 pounds at 110 PSI. And this has a speed rating of L, indicating a maximum speed of 75 miles per hour.

The gun metal gray aluminum wheel is durable. It's lightweight and rust proof. It features this open spoke design that's unique and appealing and the clear coat finish on the front and on the back of this wheel is gonna protect it from scuffs and scratches. And something else that I wanted to point out is that inside of the lug wells, there are steel inserts. It's gonna help keep this wheel securely in place on your trailer hub, preventing the holes from wearing down and eliminating the need for the constant re-tightening of the lug nuts.

Now the dimensions of this wheel, looking at the diameter first, measuring from bead seat to bead seat is 16" and the width of this wheel is 6". And as we stated, the bolt pattern is 8 on 6-1/2", and in case you don't know, the first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes and the second number is the diameter in inches of the circle on which the bolt holes sit. So to determine the bolt circle diameter on wheels with an even number of bolt holes as we have here, you're just going to measure from the center of one bolt hole to the bolt hole directly across and that will give you that measurement. The the capacity of this wheel is 4,400 pounds. The wheel stud size is 1/2" by 20, the center cap is sold separately, but if you decide to pick one up, you just need to make sure that it fits the pilot diameter of 4.90".

Now this tire and wheel assembly does meet the Department of Transportation specifications and I think that's gonna wrap up our brief lift today. I do hope that our time together has been helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy, thank you for joining me.

Karrier ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16" Aluminum Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 - Load Range G - KE83JR

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (1075 Customer Reviews)

Radial tire has a ply rating of 14 and a 4,080-lb maximum load at 110 psi. The 16" diameter x 6" wide aluminum trailer wheel features a 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern and is corrosion resistant.


Swapped out the steelies and low speed tires the trailer came with for the lighter aluminum wheels with higher speed tires. They tow great behind the sidecar and look a treat.


Very good customer service. The tires and mounting was spot on. Only small complaint would be the center cup insert does not lock in place. It will flop around a small amount. Easy solution is to put a small amount of clear silicone adhesive around the the cup and press the cup in place. Otherwise so far zero issues and the tires appear to be wearing well and have good side traction for our heavy 5th wheel in the rain. Highly recommend this combo. They look great on an older trailer.


Really happy with my tire/wheel package upgrade. Replaced the factory grey spokes and tires from 2007 when the original tires finally failed. The wheels were covered in rust from the salt up here. Only towed the trailer about 100 miles since the install but it tows soooooo smooth and looks pretty dang good.
I inadvertently stepped up an inch in tire size when I got the 15” wheels up from the factory 14” because “I know what I’m doing” but the clearance doesn’t seem to be an issue thankfully.
I thought it was just a bigger wheel. Lol


Wheels/tires set are as advertised and shipped in reasonable time. Good quality.


Just received 2 of them today and they look great especially for the price. They should be a nice upgrade to the factory rims and tires on my double jetski trailer


I upgraded my 15’ jon boat trailer wheels to these radial load range D, replacing the bias ply load range B. I couldn’t be more pleased, not only do they look great, but with the extra weight I put in the boat I have peace of mind knowing it’s rolling on better rubber. I also ordered a spare tire mount and now have.a spare using one of the original tires.


Got these to replace the cheap pizza cutter tires that came with my Sea Doos. So much better and look great! Feel much safer towing with these tires compared to the other ones. Super fast shipping and excellent packaging. Got new lug nuts and center caps as well. Love etrailer!


I built my" tool shed" on a Triton aluminum trailer. I wanted doors on three sides. I do a lot of volunteer work at a Bible camp and it involves hauling my tools to the job. The trailer had 12x 4 inch wheels and I wanted something I more substantial to carry the load. I ordered the wheels and tires from etrailer. They came on time and we're exactly what I wanted. I have purchased other items from etrailer, and highly recommend this company


Ordering from etrailer was quick and easy as always. Shipping was fast and prices are the best. I replaced my six year old galvanized rims and bias tires for these aluminum rims and radial higher quality tires. They look great on the Jon boat trailer. Now I can use the old ones that still look new for spares. I went up two tire sizes from the original painted rims and tires which makes the trailer ride much better. The only reason I did not give it five stars is the tires were 18 months old off the shelf.


These wheels look great! Big improvement over stock rims. Quick receipt and everything was as advertised.


This is such a great upgrade from the small bias tire. It travels so nice on the freeway. The aluminum rim looks so much better. I definitely recommend to buy the extended Lugnuts. The standard Lugnuts do not have enough grip on them to tighten.


6/15, thus far it's been a great experience. Fast free shipping, delivery and competitive pricing. Tires and rims look as pictured. We're heading from Orlando to Florida Keys and back, we'll give update on tire quality once we get back(approximately 30 days).


the tires on the rims I received are already 2 years old, tires have a life cycle of 10 years i would prefer new stock not old stock, you should tell customers this in advance. Rims were nice though


My 1st Jon Boat, transformed it from a dingy Ugly Green to what you see now, custom 3 phase paint and custom built decking and carpeting, added Garmin ECHOMAP UHD, painted the trailer and needed the get rid of the worn out Bias-Ply Tires that originally came with the boat when I purchased it. Decided to purchase the 12 inch Kenda tire and 12 inch aluminum HWT Wheel from etrailer I had a very good experience with the live rep over the phone while processing my order. My tires and wheels arrived in a timely manner and none of the aluminum wheels were damaged upon delivery. Will definitely make future purchases from etrailer! The tires rode well at 75 mph on the highway for fishing trip. Thanks etrailer!


Very nice tire and wheel combo. Used to replace and upgraded on my Jayco Qwest Pop-up. Only compliant and VERY minor one, I spent more time removing stickers and labels from the wheels & tires than it took time to mount them :-) but overall highly recommended !!!


I was in need of tires for my double jet ski trailer. This trailer gets a lot of miles out on it so I was interested in switching to radial tires and while I was at it, I figured I’d upgrade the wheels as well. This wheel/tire combo fit the trailer perfectly and is a nice cosmetic upgrade from the original white wheels it came with.


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!


Customer service was very good. This is the second trailer I have purchased wheels for and had no issues with at all.


A little disappointed with the delivery as the tires were delivered by USPS 1 day late but not the end of the world. Overall very pleased with the initial look of the wheels however very disappointed with the age of the tires from week 25 of 2022 versus it currently being June of 2024 meaning of the 5 year manufacturer warranty advertised on e-trailer I only get 3 years as the manufacturer warranty as the date goes from the DOT date stamped on the tire. Only 64 percent of the warranty is still left... I understand the tires being 6 months or even as much as a year old but nearly 2 years old is excessive.


Arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. A great upgrade from the steel wheels that were rusting. No more hubcaps!


5 stars!
Super happy with how they look
on my horse trailer! Shipping was quick once the items were in stock. etrailer was super helpful and responsive with emails and tracking info. Great fitment and great looking wheels and tires


William B was fantastic. He had the wheels delivered in just a few days. The wheels came individually boxed and were received in perfect condition. Wow, how refreshing to get customer service of this caliber.
Could not be happier.


This set of tires and wheels are a perfect replacement or upgrade for your camper or boat trailer. They look and preform great. The service at etrailer is exceptional.


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.


Nice rims/tires for the price. Really gave a fresh look to the old galvanized trailer. Had them at my doorstep in 2 days as promised.
