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 - TA36FR

Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this contender, ST235/80R16 radial trailer tire, in a load range E, mounted on this 16 inch Vesper silver dual wheel with the eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this tire wheel assembly is designed for dually trailers. It has a wheel offset, and this allows the assembly to be used as either the inner or the outer wheel of a dual wheel set up.This one has the four hand hole design wheel and the wheel is a silver acrylic enamel finish, which resists chipping and other damage better than the powder coat finishes. And the finish is applied after a zinc phosphate pre-treatment on the wheel and then the cover is an e-coat primer layer. It gives you excellent corrosion resistance with a nice salt spray rating of more than a thousand hours.

And the center disc on this wheel is spun form, from fine grain steel and then you can see it's welded all the way around the wheel into place for strength and durability.This is a hub piloted wheel, which means it centers onto a 4.77 inch diameter hub and once it centers on the hub, it does require the use of five-eighths inch by 18 size flange nuts for installation. Those flange nuts we do sell separately on our website. They're part number 95188, and they're listed 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 nice long life. It's great for highway use. They do use a nylon tread firming belt overlay around the tire to help prevent tread separation and they also offer tread depth bars like you see in your passenger car tires that give you a quick visual indication of your tread wear.Now, this is an ST tire, which means it's a special trailer tire design.

It will couple the strength of a bias tire with the durability and stability of a radial tire and it is created specifically for trailers, not intended for use on other vehicles. It does come with a two year platinum plus warranty, which includes emergency tire change service and other benefits and this whole assembly does meet the DOT specifications and exceeds the federal motor vehicle safety standards.A few specs on this, starting with the wheel. The wheel is a 16 inch diameter wheel. The width on just the wheel is six inches wide. The bolt pattern is an eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern, we mentioned it uses a flange nut size of five eighths inch by 18.

The wheel capacity on just the wheel is 3,860 pounds. Pilot hole diameter, the large hole here, is 4.77 inches. And as you can see on this dual wheel, it does have a positive or negative offset depending on how you use the wheel and it's 5.35 inches. And the offset is always measured from the center of the wheel to the mounting surface of the wheel, so depending on which, if you use this as an inner or outer wheel, it'll give you a positive or negative 5.35 inch offset.The tire size, which will be stamped on the sidewall.. ST for special trailer, 235/80R16.

The R means it's a radial design tire. Section width on this is 9.3 inches, overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 30.8 inches. This tire is a load range E, which means it's a 10 ply rated tire. And the maximum load on this tire that's used in a single tire application would be 3,520 pounds at 80 PSI. When it's used in a dual tire application, the capacity will be 3080 pounds at 80 PSI.And the last thing I want to mention is it does come with a speed rating and a speed rating is always stamped on the tire by a letter designation, and where you can see that is right down here around the rim. You'll see the size again that we just went through, 235/80R16, and then after it you'll see two numbers for the load index and then the letter M. Speed rating M will mean that it's an 81 mile per hour tire.But that should do it for the review on the Contender ST235/80R16 radial trailer tire, in a load range E on a 16 inch Vesper silver dual wheel with the eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern.

Review from a similar Contender Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


This tire matched my 2021 7’x14’ Pace Enclosed trailer perfectly. The color is slightly off which I originally tried to match 100% but im ok with it as it is a spare but everything else is identical. I priced matched everywhere so etrailer prices are good. They also have guidance on measuring so that was helpful. Shipping was
fast, 4 days maybe. Overall extremely happy with purchase and would recommend etrailer to others.

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.
