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.


Durable 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.


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"

Video Transcript for Review of Taskmaster Trailer Tires and Wheels - Tire with Wheel - TA63RR

Hello, every buddy, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Contender ST 175/80/R13 radial trailer tire, in a load range C, mounted on this 13" Vesper, white modular, steel trailer wheel, with the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this tire wheel assembly ideal for stock trailers, utility trailers, and campers. The wheel on this is a steel wheel, has the modular design, which is sturdy and corrosion resistant. And when we say modular design, that's the one that has the round holes that go all the way around the wheel. They do use a nice white acrylic enamel finish on it to resist chipping, and other damage better than the powder coat finishes.

And, this finishes applied after a zinc phosphate pretreatment and then it covers an e-coat primer layer. Does give you excellent corrosion resistance, with the salt spray rating more than a thousand hours. And, this wheel does use the beveled stud holes here, to help keep your wheels securely in place on the trailer hub. Eliminates the need for the constant re-tightening of your lug nuts. The tire on this, that is a radial tire.

It is constructed with double steel belts, double polyester cords, great for highway use. They do use a nylon and tread forming belt overlay to help prevent treads separation. And the tire is a special trailer tire design. So if does couple the strength of a biased tire, with the durability and stability of a radial tire. It is created specifically for trailers.

So, it's not intended for use on other vehicles. And, this whole assembly meets the DOT specifications, and exceeds federal motor vehicle safety standards. This assembly does come with a two year platinum plus warranty, which includes complimentary roadside assistance. And that services is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Now the wheel does not come with a center cap.

If you do want a center cap, we do sell those separately on our website, Your center cap will go right through this pilot hole right here when you install it. So when you do get a center cap, you do wanna make sure has a diameter of 2.99 inches, which is the diameter of the pilot hole, right here. The rim itself, the diameter on the wheel. It's gonna be 13 inches. The width on just the wheel is four and a half inches wide. The bolt pattern on this wheel's a five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. And if you wanna measure that on a wheel that's an odd number of lugs, in this case five. What you'll do is pick any hole. Let's say, if you picked a hole right here and then you'll measure across to either this hole or that hole, but when you measure it's from the center of the starting hole to the furthest edge of the hole that you measure to. So on this room, we'll measure four and a half inches. So that means it's a five lug four and a half inch bolt pattern. This will use a wheel-lug size of a half inch by 20. And the weight capacity on just the wheel is 1,660 pounds. Now the tire size, which will be stamped on the outside here, it'll say, "ST," for special trailer, 175/80/R13. The R means it's a radial tire. The section width on it is seven inches. Overall diameter from the bottom to the top. when it's inflated it's 24 inches, and the tire capacity is a low range C which means it's a six ply rated tire. Does have a maximum load capacity of 1,360 pounds at 50 PSI. And the last thing I did wanna mention is most all the new trailer towers are coming through with speed ratings and they label it on the side wall by a letter designation. So right after the size that we just went over, you'll see two numbers. And then the letter M. Speed rating M means this has an 81 mile per hour speed rating. That should do it for the review on the Contender ST 175/80/R13 radial trailer tire, in a load range C, on a 13 inch Vesper white modular steel trailer wheel with a five on four and a half inch bolt pattern..

  • Tire and Wheel Replacement Recommendation for 2-PK Trailer Tires Rims ST175/80D13 By Eco-Trail ST
    Sorry to hear about your tire - it's never fun dealing with a flat, especially when it's proving difficult to get it fixed. If the wheels are damaged enough that a tire can't be seated properly then I recommend at least getting new wheels if not getting new wheels and tires depending on the shape of your tires (and whether you trust them still since they're the same kind you got from Amazon). For your application I recommend replacing your tire and wheels with the Contender ST175/80R13...

  • Trailer Tire Replacement for Jet Ski Trailer with 155/80R13 Tires/Wheels
    The closest current tire size to what you mentioned would be ST175/80R13 like the Contender part # TA63RR which is mounted on a 5 lug wheel like what you have. This is the best priced wheel and tire in this size but it will do a really great job and be very reliable. Trailer tires tend to start dry rotting and coming apart around 4 to 6 years so most likely that is why your older tires are currently leaking as that's pretty common.
