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.


Built-In Offset for Dual Applications

This wheel is designed to be used in dual-wheel setups. The 5.35" offset allows the wheel to be positioned closer to the trailer frame when used as the inner wheel of the setup. And if you use this wheel in the outer position, the offset ensures that it will sit closer to the outside of your trailer. This hub-piloted wheel centers on the hub, not the lugs, and it requires the use of flange nuts (sold separately) for installation.


Durable Acrylic Enamel Finish

Maxion Wheels Vesper Acrylic Enamel Finish

This wheel has a durable acrylic enamel finish on the front. The finish is applied after the wheel goes through an environmentally safe zinc phosphate pre-treatment and is coated with an e-coat primer layer. Compared to powder coat finishes, this finish resists getting chipped from flying road debris or scraped from hitting a curb for a longer period of time. These acrylic enamel wheels performed for more than 1,000 hours in salt spray tests.


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"

Video Transcript for Review of Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - TA35FR

Jeff: Hello, everybody! This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Contender ST235ADR16 radial trailer tire in a load range E on this 16 inch Vesper silver dual wheel, with the eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern. This tire wheel assembly's designed for dually trailers. The wheel offset on this allows the assembly to be used as either an inner or outer wheel of a dual wheel setup.This one is a sturdy steel wheel. It has the four hand hole design. Right here you can see.

It is a silver acrylic enamel finish, which resists chipping and other damage better than the powder-coat finishes. The finish on this is applied after a zinc phosphate pretreatment, and then it covers an e-coat primer layer. Gives you excellent corrosion resistance with a salt spray rating of more than 1000 hours. The center disc on this wheel, right here, is spun form from fine-grain steel. And then, as you can see, it's welded all the way around the wheel into place for strength and durability.This is hub piloted wheel.

It is designed to center onto a 4.88 inch diameter hub. When you install it, it does require the use of five-eighths inch by 18 size flange nuts. Those we do sell separate in our website. They're part number 95188, and they do list them on this product page as a related product.The tire on this is a radial tire. It is constructed with double steel belts, double polyester cords for a nice long life.

It's great for highway use, and they do use a nylon tread firming belt overlay around the tire to help prevent tread separation. And they do offer the tread depth bars like you'll see in passenger car tires. That gives you a quick visual indication of how your tire's wearing.This is a special trailer tire design. That's why it's an ST tire. The design couples the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire, and it is created specifically for trailers.

It's not intended for use on other vehicles.This does come with a two year platinum plus warranty that includes emergency tire change service and other benefits. The assembly does meet the DOT, Department of Transportation, specifications, and exceeds Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.A few dimensions on this. We're going to start with the wheel. The diameter is 16 inches in diameter. The width on just the wheel is six inches wide. Bolt pattern on this wheel is eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern. We mentioned it does use the flange nut size of five-eighths inch by 18. The wheel capacity or weight capacity on this wheel by itself is 3860 pounds, and the pilot hole diameter is 4.88 inches in diameter.You can see on this wheel, it does have an offset. A large offset. The offset is always measured from the center of the wheel to where it mounts onto the hub. So, on this one it will have either a positive or negative, depending on how you use the wheel. Either an inner or an outer wheel. So, we'll just go to measure 5.35 inches, either positive or negative.The tire size on this will be stamped on the sidewall. It is ST, for special trailer, 235ADR16. The R stands for radial designed tire.Section width, 9.3 inches. Overall diameter, from the bottom to the very top, is 30.8 inches. And this is a load range E, which means it's a 10 ply rated tire. So, the maximum load capacity, if it's used as a single-tire application, is 3520 pounds at 80 psi. If it's used in a dual-tire application, it would be 3080 pounds at 80 psi.The last thing I do want to mention, it does have a speed rating on it, and the speed rating is always stamped on the tire by a letter designation. Where that's at is if we just go around the rim of the tire. Right here you'll see there's your size again, 235AD16. Right after the size, there'll be two numbers for the load index, and then the letter M. Speed rating M will mean that it's an 81 mile per hour rated tire.But that should do it for the review on the Contender ST235ADR16 radial trailer tire in a load range E on this 16 inch Vesper silver dual wheel with the eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern.

The transaction was smooth and fast. I received the tires and wheels in 2 days and they were exactly what I ordered. I purchased a used utility trailer and will put the tires on the trailer after I grease the bearings. That will essentially result in a nice "new" trailer.
