Platinum Plus Warranty with Roadside Assistance

This tire-and-wheel assembly comes with a Platinum Plus warranty that includes complimentary roadside assistance for 2 years. If your trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change out the flat tire with your existing inflated spare tire. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to the roadside assistance, this warranty also includes other benefits and services.


Durable, Corrosion-Resistant PVD Finish Is Environmentally Friendly

PVD Finish

The highly corrosion-resistant finish on this steel wheel is applied through a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating process. This process occurs in a vacuum environment so that the aluminum coating binds to the steel at a molecular level. As a result, the coating is harder, more durable, and more wear resistant than chrome plating.


Compared to hexavalent and trivalent chrome plating methods, the PVD process creates a finish that withstands the effects of water, flying debris, and other elements for a longer period of time. The aluminum-coated wheels performed for more than 168 hours in salt spray tests, up to 500 hours in water immersion tests, and up to 40 lbs in impact-resistance tests. They won't pit or peel like chrome-plated wheels, and they resist the effects of any chemicals that may be on the road, such as magnesium chloride or salt during icy or snowy weather.


In addition, the PVD coating process is an eco-friendly alternative to chrome plating, which is extremely toxic to the environment.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

The automotive-rated center disc is raised and the stud holes are beveled and uncoated for better clamp force retention. This technology helps the wheel stay tight against your hub without the need for constant retightening.


Provider Radials with Automotive-Grade Tread

Provider Tread Vs Standard Tread

Unlike standard trailer tire tread, which has solid, continuous ribs, the automotive-grade tread on these Provider radials has ribs with breaks. These breaks allow water to run off to the sides. The Provider tread also has sipes. Siping is a process in which thin grooves (or sipes) are cut into the rubber of the tire. The grooves channel water away from the tread so that the tire makes better contact with the road. Both of these features greatly improve traction during wet, snowy, or icy conditions.


Provider radials are constructed with double polyester cords and double steel belts for increased durability and endurance. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation. Provider radials are bake tested - a process usually reserved for automotive tires - to ensure that the rubber holds up over time.


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 Taskmaster Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - A16RTK8BMPVD Review

Speaker 2: Today we're going to be taking a look at part number A16RTK8BNPVD, this is the TaskMaster Provider ST235/80R 16 radial tire with the 16-inch steel mod wheel. The tire and wheel assembly is going to be ideal for boat trailers, stock trailers, utility trailers and campers. It's going to have the sturdy steel wheel with a modular design, that's just the holes going around the wheel gives it a really nice look. The coating process on the wheel is physical vapor deposition, that's PVD, that's a wheel coating process that's going to create a sleek, black finish that's harder, tougher and more durable than chrome plating. It's a tough wear-resistant coating that won't pit or peal. It's going to offer excellent corrosion resistance.

It actually features a salt-spray rating of more than 168 hours and that's an environmentally friendly process or technique that's going to bind the coating to the wheel at a molecular level. That's going to be on the front and the back. The only area that doesn't have that coating is this right here. That's because it uses improved torque retention, that's ITR technology that's going to help to keep the wheel securely in place on your trailer. The stud holes are beveled to offer better clamp force retention. The radial tire is going to be constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords which is going to offer a long life.

It's going to have nylon tread-forming belt overlays that's going to help prevent tread separation and going around the perimeter of the tire, we're going to have tread depth bars. That's going to offer a quick visual indicator of tread wear. The assembly does meet the Department of Transportation specifications and it exceeds FMVSS requirements. The dimensions on the rim, this is a 16-inch diameter rim that's going to have a width of 6 inches. The bold pattern on the unit, that's going to be 8 on 6 1/2. It's going to use a wheel lug size of 1/2 inch by 20 or 9/16-inch by 18.

The capacity of the wheel is going to be 3,750 pounds and the pilot hole diameter, that's the diameter of this large hole here in the center, that's going to be 5.12 inches. Again, tire size is sT235/80R 16. It's going to give us a section width of 9.25 inches and a outer diameter from top to bottom when fully inflated of 30.79 inches. When it comes to the tire capacity, we're looking at a load range E, which give it a 10-ply rating. The maximum load on the tire is 3,520 pounds at 80 psi. It does have a speed rating.

If we look after the tire size, we're going to see it say 124-120M. The M is our speed rating, which gives us a maximum speed rating of 81 miles per hour. That's going to do it for today's look at part number A16RTK8BMPVD. .

Review from a similar Provider PVD in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I'll start by saying that I rarely post reviews for products and if I do, I don't usually give a full star rating. That's just me. After one year of purchase of my Provider Radial tires and rims, I can say that so far I'm very pleased at the way they're performing. Keep in mind that these are for my boat trailer and that they don't get the miles put on them like a car or truck. I have them installed on a 2007 Tracker Targa 165 with the stock trailer. I replaced the "original" 07' tires in June of 2020. The tires get about 500 miles a season and maybe 15-20 dunkings in fresh water on my fishing trips. The silver or almost chrome finish is holding up rather well and I haven't seen any rust or oxidation so far. The ride of the tire is equal or better than the OEM tires. Product fit matched my application and the price was an affordable option from etrailer as opposed to buying them at a local boat / marine supply store. I would buy again.

I ordered these tire and wheel combo’s and was surprised how quick they were delivered! This was a great upgrade for my trailer, the wheels look great and the tires are a couple sizes larger than the originals. Very happy with this purchase!!

Review from a similar Provider PVD in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Ordered five of these tire/wheel combo online and they were delivered relatively quickly straight to my driveway--overall not a bad process. Replaced all of the wheels on my 40' fifth-wheel (including the spare) after having three separate blowouts on the load range E tires that came with it from the factory (ridiculous). I was worried about fit since these are 235/85R16 and the factory wheels were 235/80R16. Turns out there was nothing to worry about--they look great and fit perfectly. Now I have the peace of mind that comes with a load range G wheel/tire and it didn't break the bank. The first long trip of the season is next week so I'll update this post if anything changes but I suspect things will go great.


Comments
So its been about a year since I bought these tires and I couldnt be happier. Weve been on several trips and the peace of mind that comes with these tires was worth every penny. It is to the point where I dont think twice about it anymore I simply check the pressure and lug nut toques and then get on the road. I highly recommend them.

Review from a similar Provider PVD in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Just picked up a very nice used snowmobile trailer but it needed tires and the rims were pretty rusty. Riding season is very short and I don't want to worry about my trailer tires or the integrity of the rims. The quality of this rim/tire combo is excellent and I'm very confident it will stand up to the punishment of salty roads.

Shawn B was very helpful and knowledgeable on the phone. She followed up on the delivery of my boat trailer tire during and after delivery. I appreciate her polite and professional service and am very happy with my new tire. It is exactly what I expected at a fair price and delivered on time in a card board box clean and brand new condition. I will definitely recommend etrailer to my friends and family in Minnesota!

I looked around at lots of tires. Then I found etrailer.com. I found the predator tire on this great silver Crome rim. The price was great. And when I called for help they were helpful and pleasant to talk with. Fast delivery to. Just got them today and put them on. Can wait to take them out for a spin.

Finish wore off on each of the four wheels after first use. POOR QUALITY!!! Wish I would have stuck with steel wheels that I can paint these aren't worth the money. I would have returned them if I didn't have to pay return shipping on four tires.

Review from a similar Provider PVD in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Hello, This is my one year follow-up after my purchase of a set of Provider ST175/80R13 Radial Tires w/ 13" Steel Mod Wheels in the Silver PVD Finish. The wheels were an excellent purchase that replaced some old mismatched tires on our Tracker PT185 boat trailer. Over last summer, we put well over 1500 miles on our local fishing trips around Wisconsin and the tires were great! Absolutely no problems yet. The silver wheels have held up great and look good as well. This was a good purchase for us.


Comments
Hello - its been another year and here is a follow-up from our purchase of the Provider ST17580R13 Radial Tires w 13 Steel Mod Wheels in the Silver PVD Finish. The tires have been working great on our boat trailer - absolutely no problems. Again, we have put in numerous miles around the state on all types of roads in our fishing trips and the tires have served their purpose. Im so glad we purchased these tires. The peace of mind knowing that I have quality tires and rims makes all the difference.

Review from a similar Provider PVD in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Shipping was timely. I put this package on my trailer and headed out on a 8 hour trip to pick up an antique tractor. The entire trip back was in the rain. I had a close call with a car turning out on the highway in front of a semi truck and the trailer stayed behind me instead of skidding out of control. I have made several trips on my rock road and the tires and wheels still look great.


Comments
After a year, the wheels look great and the tires are wearing very well. I don’t pull it every week, but I am not scared to hook up and go.

Review from a similar Provider PVD in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Recently in need of replacement tires for my Newmar fifth wheel. The existing tires on this Rv was plagued by blowouts. When calling etrailer the individual was very helpful indetermining the best rim and tire the provider st 235 85 r 16 g rated with the polished rim. This tire has had excellent reviews for the heavier Rv. I received the tires on the 3rd day in excellent condition,looks great. The only minor issue the tires were to be shipped in individual boxes with the air pressure at 110 psi, when received only at 90 psi. This is no issue I will inflate to proper psi.


Comments
excellent tire and rim, looks great seeing little to no wear, handles the weight of this fifth wheel excellent, very satisfied

Tires/wheels are as advertised. Wheel is very sharp looking with the black pvd coating. I have put them on my boat trailer and waiting for the next good day of weather to head out. I expect nothing but exceptional wear and performance from the the tire/wheel combination. Update to come

Ask the Experts about this Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels

  • Can 16 Steel Wheel # 660865MBPVD be Used on 5th Wheel Trailer
    Black PVD 16" Steel Mod Wheel # 660865MBPVD is marketed towards marine applications because of the corrosion resistance qualities of the PVD finish on the wheel. But you could absolutely use it on a 5th wheel trailer. Please note that the wheel has an offset meaning the wheel mounting surface is not in the center of the wheel. The mounting surface has a 1/2 inch positive offset which means the mounting surface is more towards the outside of the wheel. This moves the tire 1/2 inch closer...
