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.


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.


Match Mounted and Balanced Trailer Tire Assembly

In an ideal world, tire-and-wheel assemblies would be perfectly round and even throughout. Unfortunately tires and wheels have imperfections that often cause vibrations, resulting in a rough ride and wear and tear on the assemblies, as well as on the rest of your trailer's running gear. Taskmaster helps to solve this problem by match mounting and balancing their assemblies so they're ready to roll when they reach your door.


To do this, Taskmaster uses a laser-guided machine to locate the heavy and light spots of each assembly. They then align the assembly so that lightest part of the tire is near the heaviest part of the wheel. The assembly is then rotated at high speeds to pinpoint the optimal place to apply weights to further balance the tire.


Don't delay your adventures by having to take your trailer to the shop for new tires. Start rolling as soon as possible with easy-to-install, fully balanced tire-and-wheel assemblies from Taskmaster.


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 - Balanced Tire with Wheel - TA49VR

Hello, everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Taskmaster Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire in a Load Range E, and it's mounted on this 16 inch Vesper white modular steel trailer wheel with the 8 on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now, this tire and wheel assembly, it is ideal for stock trailers, utility trailers, and even campers. What's unique on this assembly, this assembly is match-mounted and balanced to the wheel for ride comfort and durability. And match-mounting basically of tires and wheels is a process in which the tire's installed onto the wheel in a specifically selected spot to minimize final force of imbalance. And the method of match-mounting is they align the tire's lightest spot with the wheel's heaviest spot and eliminates most of the radial force that can cause tire and suspension wear, and then they do the final balancing, it's done by applying weights to specific spots on the front and the back of the wheel to eliminate any chance of uneven wear or vibration.

And just to show you the weight, you'll notice, don't have any on the front, but if you look on the back, you'll see one right here. So with this weight on there, that makes this assembly all balanced. Now, this is a steel wheel with a modular design, it's very sturdy and corrosion resistant. The wheel has a white acrylic enamel finish on it to resist chipping and other damage better than the powder coat finishes. The finish is applied after a zinc phosphate pre-treatment, and then it covers an E-coat primer layer, gives you an excellent corrosion resistance with a salt spray rating of more than 1,000 hours.

Few specs on the wheel, the diameter, it's measured 16 inches, the width on just the wheel is six inches wide. This wheel has a bolt pattern of 8 on 6 1/2 inches, and if you wanna measure that on a wheel like this that's an even number of lugs, in this case, 8, it's pretty easy, 'cause the lug holes you can see are directly across from each other, so you just pick one of the holes, measure from the center of that directly across to the center of the one right across from it, on this it'll measure 6 1/2 inches, so that means it's an eight lug, 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This will use a wheel lug size, 1/2 inch by 20 or 9/16 by 18, and the weight capacity on just the wheel by itself is 3,750 pounds. If you noticed, this does not come with the center cap, if you do want one, we do sell those separately. You do wanna make sure to get one that'll match the pilot hole diameter here of 5.12 inches, and the reason is your center cap will install through this hole when it goes onto the wheel.

The tire on this is a radial tire, it is constructed with double steel belts, double polyester cords for a nice long life, it is great for highway use, and they do use a nylon tread firming belt overlay around the tire to help prevent tread separation. The tire itself is an ST tire, which stands for special trailer tire, has the sturdy sidewall, so it can handle heavy loads, and it is created specifically for trailers, it's not intended for use on any other vehicles. Tire size, which will be stamped on the sidewall, ST for special trailer, 235/80R16, the R means radial. The section width on this tire, 9.3 inches, overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 30.8 inches. We mentioned it's a Load Range E, which means it's a 10-ply rated tire, so this does have a maximum load capacity of 3,520 pounds at 80 psi.

Another thing I do wanna add is the speed rating. All the new trailer tires are coming through with a speed rating stamped on them, and it's stamped on the sidewall with a letter designation, and where to find that is right after the size we just went over, you'll see two numbers for the load index, and then the letter M. Speed rating M means that it's an 81 mile per hour speed rating. Now, this does come with a two-year platinum plus warranty, which includes emergency tire change service and other benefits, and this assembly does meet the DOT, Department of Transportation specifications, and it will exceed your Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. But that's gonna do it for the review on this Taskmaster Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire in a Load Range E, mounted on this 16 inch Vesper white modular steel trailer wheel with the 8 on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern.

Very good tire/wheel combination package made it a convenient and timely purchase. Would like to have had the option to upgrade the valve stems to the 100psi metal version to possibly prevent UV from degrading the rubber stems after a few years. I would purchase again. Sure glad to have them delivered to doorstep.

The tire came in relatively unscathed but was not packaged. I previously ordered a 14" trailer tire that came in a box that was large enough to hold this one. I expected this one to arrive packaged as well.

Items arrive broken because they put them loose in the same box with spring hangers!

Good looking tire and rim used as a spare for my 2018 Cougar 333MKS which had 16" rim and tires. Still have tire and rim but traded trailer for new Cougar 23MLE which has 15-inch tires, so tire and rim won't fit new trailer. Looking to sell tire and rim so I can get one the right size for new trailer.

  • What Replacement 235/80-16 Tires/Wheels do I Need for My Trailer?
    When you mention that you have an 8-lug pattern, I assume you mean the more common 8 on 6-1/2" pattern. It is possible that you have a 8 on 275mm. In order to know for sure, I recommend measuring for your bolt pattern. I went ahead and attached a FAQ article that guides you through the process. If you indeed have an 8 on 6-1/2" pattern on your ST235/80-R16, I recommend the Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 16" White Mod Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 # TA49VR (load range E) or the Provider...

  • Hub and Drum, Brakes, and Tire and Wheel Combos for Timbren 7K Axle-Less Suspension
    Since your trailer weighs 4,800 pounds dry, when loaded it will weigh more. But if its final weight when loaded and ready to tow is far enough from the 7,000 pound capacity of the Timbren Axle-Less system # TASR7KS01 it could have a stiff ride. Other than that there isn't a reason why it could not be used. The recommended hub and drum assembly for this system is # 42866UC3-EZ. And for trailer brakes I recommend # 23-106 for the right and # 23-105 for the left. I have included a couple...
