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.


Corrosion-Resistant Finish

The steel wheel goes through a 3-step finishing process that makes it both attractive and corrosion resistant. The wheel is first submerged in a zinc phosphate bath to ensure good paint adhesion. It is then e-coated with an acrylic primer base and the outboard side is finished with baked-on DuPont powder paint. The light e-coat on the inboard side of the wheel reduces friction between the wheel and your hub and eliminates the flaking that can occur with a heavily applied paint finish.


Improved Torque Retention Technology

Beveled Stud Holes Front and Back

The automotive-rated center disc is raised and the stud holes are beveled and uncoated for better clamp force retention. This technology helps the wheel stay tight against your hub without the need for constant retightening.


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 - TA76VR

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at these, this Contender ST235 80R16 radial trailer tire in a load range E. Mounted on this 16 inch white modular steel wheel with the 6 on 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now, this tire wheel assembly is ideal for stock trailers, utility trailers, and even campers. The wheel they use as a steel wheel.

It has the modular design to it. And when I say modular design, that's the design that has the round holes all the way around the wheel. This wheel is very sturdy and rust resistant. And the wheel does go through a three-step finishing process which include a zinc phosphate bath, e-coat primer, and then a nice white powder coat on the outside of the wheel. And if we spin it around to the back or the inside of the wheel, you can see it's lightly e-coated to reduce friction and provide rust resistance.

Now, this wheel also uses the ITR technology which stands for improved torque retention. That's designed to help keep the wheel securely in place on your trailer. And they do that by, let me just zoom in, I'll show you the stud holes here. They're uncoated stud holes. And they are beveled to give you better clamp force retention when you install your lug nuts and tighten them down.

Now, the tire that's used on this assembly 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 also use a nylon tread-firming belt overlay to help prevent tread separation. And the tire is bake tested to ensure that the rubber will hold up over time.

This is an ST tire which means it's a special trailer tire design. It 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 any other vehicles. This whole assembly does come with a two-year Platinum Plus warranty which will include emergency tire change service and other benefits. And the assembly does meet the DOT or Department of Transportation specifications, and will exceed Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Few specs on this, the diameter on the wheel, 16 inches. The width on just the wheel itself is six inches wide. Bolt pattern on this wheel is a 6 on 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern. And if you wanna measure that on a wheel that's an even number of lugs, like in this case, six, it's pretty easy cause the lug holes are directly across from each other. So, when you go to measure your bolt pattern, you just measure from this. Pick any hole, let's say this one. Measure from the center of that hole to the center of the hole of the lug right across from it. So on this, it'll measure 5 1/2 inches. So, that means it's a 6 on 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This will use a wheel lug size of a half inch by 20 or 9/16 by 18. Weight capacity of just the wheel is 3,500 pounds. And the pilot hole diameter which is the large hole here in the center of the wheel, goes over the hub on your trailer. Diameter of this opening is 4.25 inches. Tire size will be stamped on the sidewall. ST for special trailer, 235 80R16. The R means that it is a radial tire. Section width 9.3 inches. Overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 30.8. And the tire is a load range E which means it's a 10 ply rated tire. Has a maximum load capacity of 3,520 pounds at 80 PSI. And then, the last thing I do wanna mention is most all your trailer tires now are coming through with a speed rating stamped on them. And they stamp it by a letter designation. And where you'll find that is if you just go down by the wheel and see where the tire size is right here. Right after, you'll see two numbers for the load index and then the letter M. Speed rating M will mean this has an 81 mile per hour speed rating. But that should do it for the review on this Contender ST235 80R16 radial trailer tire in a load range E. Mounted on this 16 inch white modular steel wheel with the 6 on 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern..

delivery was prompt. tire / wheels are substantial, haven't rolled them yet but stands tall on my diy 30ft rv trailer. I suspect they will do the job wonderfully, I don't see any squatting in these tires compared to the under rated load c tires they put on those old FEMA trailers.

The first wheel and tire we bought was intended as a spare... once received, we knew it had to go on the road and we immediately purchased a second, to complete the set. As advertised, nothing cheap about this product. Thank you.

  • Looking for Trailer Tires With 3500 lb Load Rating
    Unfortunately, we don't carry any tires 14.5 inch wheels that would have that kind of load rating. The highest rated tire we offer for a 14.5 wheel size are # AM10333 with a 2835 lb rating. If you have sufficient clearance to go up to a 235/85-16 tire for a 16 inch wheel, we do offer some tires with a 3500+ lb load rating, but the proper wheel/tire combo for you would depend on the wheel bolt pattern used by your hubs. For an 8 lug wheel with a 6-1/2 inch bolt circle, I'd recommend...
