Premium Trailer Contender Radials

This radial ply tire from Taskmaster is constructed with double steel belts and double polyester cords for increased durability. A protective layer of nylon is wrapped around the steel belts to help prevent tread separation.


Unlike standard trailer tire tread, which has solid, continuous ribs, the tread on these Premium Trailer Contender radials has ribs with 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. This feature greatly improves traction during wet, snowy, or icy conditions.


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.

Note- 4 star is only because I have no long term experience with them. These tires appear to be built well. They are uniform in structure- no obvious sidewall or tread irregularities. They pull straight and true in the short trip I have run them. They did take quite a bit of weight to balance, but no more than some of my truck tires. Mounted on a 12,000 lb toy hauler that has a 14,000 lb GTW rating. 695299


Comments
1 year and 5000 miles later the tires look great and wear evenly. If it were not for the pandemic it would have twice the miles. The trailer pulls like a dream. I had this set balanced which improves wear and reduces stress. They run the same temp as the old tires- 140* at 70mph in 95* sun drenched asphalt. Over the winter there was no appreciable pressure loss which shows among other things that the liner on these tires is solid.

Tire is overall very solid with good tread and no irregularities in the sidewalls. The M speed rating is better than what came on the trailer but I have no plans to drive 81 mph. Even though I don't have that many miles on it I expect it to hold up well. 881473

  • ST235/85-16 Load Range G Tire Mounted on Lion's Head Jaguar 16 x 6 Rim
    I can get you a Taskmaster Contender load range G 14-ply rated tire in 235/85-16 as part # PTCG235R16, and I can offer you the # 274-000026 wheel separately, as we don't have the equipment at our facility to mount tires. Taskmaster doesn't offer that tire size in a load range G, and Lion's Head is owned by Westlake Tire, so the only way to get that tire mounted on that rim given that we can't do it here would be to purchase the items separately and have them mounted locally. If you'd...
