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.


Beveled Stud Holes

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.


Standard Trailer Tire Tread

Contender Tire Tread

The standard tread on these tires has solid, continuous ribs, and it has very few sipes (or thin grooves) cut into the rubber. These tires are designed for use on trailers, so they don't require the level of traction that would be needed on a vehicle that is braking or steering.


Contender radials have double polyester cords and double steel belts. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation.


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"

The tire and wheel and mounting bracket came quick, it was exactly as advertised and very reasonably priced. It was in great shape, had air in it and the bracket mounted quick and easy on my trailer. Zero complaints and will definitely order through these guys again. Highly recommend. 490287

Ordered 2) AC15R45WM on Monday, they were delivered on Thursday as promised. I had a few question so ordered via phone. Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Kudos, top notch customer service experience. I will be back (we have 2 horse, 2 landscape and 1 car trailers). The trailer I purchased these tires/wheels for ID taking a 860mile on Saturday. No better test. Buy from etrailer, IMHO, you can't go wrong....... 317848


Comments
Tires have approx 2000 miles on them since installation. They appear to be in great shape. The wheel finish has held up. Overall, very happy and highly recommend.

I love ordering from etrailer! It’s so easy and always the cheapest around! Choosing the right size was super easy too. I tried to convince the wife it was a gift for her but she wasn’t buying it. So etrailer, maybe offer gift wrapping in the future!! 592250

Review from a similar Contender White Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Because I am facing a 3500 mile cross the US trip with my boat and trailer I purchased new hubs, new wheels and tires. The hubs went on with no issues. Unfortunately etrailer does not dynamically balance the wheel/tire after assembled. They do the simple heavy wheel spot opposite the heavy tire spot. I took them to my regular tire supplier and, using the correct fixture, had them balanced. They needed typical weights; and I needed to pay $38! Disappointing that I saw no note telling me of their balancing policy. 616707


Comments
None of the whee/ltire manufacturers we deal with balance the wheel tire combo at the factory. You can certainly balance them if you wish, but because trailers dont have steer axles, its not as important that trailer tires be perfectly balanced as it would be for a passenger car tire.

Review from a similar Contender White Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


On my older trailer I couldn't find a replacement interior lamp. But, did purchase clearance and an outdoor light. In addition I purchased a spare tire with rim, hard to find sink repair, and some smaller items. I am very pleased with all these products: price, quality, and service. The proof that I'm pleased with etrailer is that just this week I have made additional purchases. Return customers the crown of a good business. 787193

A quality tire and wheel. Better wheel then whats on the trailer now. Had a great selection of wheels. I bought one locally because it was well...local. So glad they sold me the wrong 4.5on5 instead of 5on5 because etrailer had the same exact wheel then what they had in stock. etrailer has a great selection of trailer parts. Well use them again. 720418

Review from a similar Contender White Mod in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Wheels and tires were exactly as advertised. I purchased 4 new wheels and tires as replacements for aging units already on travel trailer. It was cheaper to buy 4 new tires and wheels and ship them from etrailer than buy 4 tires from local shop. I can use the 4 old wheels as Spares. I have ordered from etrailer before and they communicate very well on shipping status and delivery dates have always been on or before dates they commit to. 719301

I bought these tires last year for one of my trailers. I have had no issues with them and have since bought a replacement for one of my other trailers. The best thing about getting these tires was etrailer customer service. The order was easy to make and they arrived very fast. Thanks!!! 665104

    In that tire size you would want the part # AC16R6WM for if you need a 6 lug wheel or the part # AC16R8WMQ for if you have an 8 lug wheel as those are the two common bolt patterns for 16 inch trailer wheels. Both of the tire setups have speed ratings of 81 mph which is higher than most trailer tires so that is why we prefer them. The outer diameter is 30.79 inches which will be right at 2 inches taller than what you have. That means you would gain an inch of additional height. You will...

  • Recommended Axle-Less Suspension System And Electric Brakes For New Build Trailer
    Since you are building your trailer I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less system. This eliminates the need to add shackles and leaf springs and also need a specific length axle to fit your trailer. An axle-less system bolts right to the trailer frame. We do not carry a 5,500-axle but you may want to go with a 7,000-lb system like part # TASR7KS01. This system comes with a brake flange and will work great with a hub and drum assembly like part # 42866UC3-EZ. This hub and drum is designed...

Based on our decoder year D is 1983. There wasn't any standardized VIN format until 1981, so this is at least of some assistance.
