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 tire-and-wheel assembly 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 assembly as the outer tire and wheel, 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.


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.


Radial Tires vs. Bias Tires

Radial tire vs bias tire graphic

The cords on this radial ply 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, which leads to a longer tread life and improved steering.


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 - TA96FR

Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Provider 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 Dooley trailers. The wheel offset on this allows the assembly inaudible 00:00:24 an inner our outer wheel of a dual wheel setup.It is a sturdy steel wheel, has the four hand holes in it, and it does use a silver acrylic enamel finish to resist chipping and other damage better than the powder coat finishes. This finish is supplied after a nice zinc phosphate pre-treatment and it covers an e-coat primer layer.

Gives you excellent corrosion resistance with a nice salt spray rating of more than a thousand hours. And the center disc right here is spun formed from fine grain steel. And then, as you can see, it's welded all the way around in place for strength and durability.Now, this is a hub piloted wheel, meaning it requires the use of five-eighths-inch by 18 size flange nuts for installation. Basically, when this goes on the trailer, this will center on the hub, and then you just put your lug nuts on there to tighten it down. Now, those lug nuts, we do sell separately on our website.

They're part number 95188, and we do list them on this product page as a related product.Now, the tire that's on this wheel 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 nylon tread firming belt overlays to help prevent tread separation, and they also offer the tread depth bars, like you'll see in passenger car tires, where it gives you a quick visual indication of how your tread is wearing.This tire is bake tested to ensure that the rubber holds up over time, and they do use an automotive grade tread. Just wanted to zoom in so you can see what we're talking about.

Has the siping. The sipes are those little cuts in the tire, tread blocks here. Those sipes will help channel water away from underneath the tire to improve traction during wet or snowy or icy conditions.Now, this is 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 other vehicles. It 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 specifications and exceeds the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.Few measurements on this, on the rim itself, the diameter again is 16 inches. The width on just the wheel is six-inches wide. The bolt pattern on this wheel is an eight on six-and-a-half inch bolt pattern. And as we've mentioned, it uses the flange nut size of five-eighths-inch by 18 threads per inch. Weight capacity on just the wheel by itself is 3,860 pounds. And the pilot hole diameter, this large hole here, it goes over the hub on your trailer, is 4.77 inches.Now, the offset we mentioned, you can see how the mounting surface will stick out far this way. And if you look at it the other way, it'd be in. So, it does have an offset of a plus or minus 5.35 inches. And basically, the offset is always measured from the center line of the wheel to where the mounting surface is. This one, depending on how it's used, inner or outer, it would have a plus or minus 5.35-inch offset.The tire size, which will be stamped on the tire itself. Right here, it's ST for special trailer, 235/80R16. The R stands for radial tire. Section width on this tire is going to be 9.3 inches. Overall diameter from the bottom to the top when it's inflated is 30.8 inches. The tire capacity, it is a load range E, which means it's a 10 ply rated tire. So, the maximum load if it's just used as a single application, the load will be 3,520 pounds at 80 PSI. And when it's used in the dual tire application, your capacity will be 3,080 pounds at 80 PSI.And the last thing I do want to mention, almost all the new trailer tires are coming through with speed ratings now. And the speed rating will always be designated by a letter designation. And it's usually right after the size we just went over. You'll see two numbers for the load index and then the letter M. The letter M will stand for 81 mile per hour speed rating. But that should do it for the review on this Provider ST235/80R16 radial trailer tire in a load range E on the 16-inch Vesper silver dual wheel with the eight on six-and-a-half inch bolt pattern.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Excellent service! I was immediately notified the wheel I ordered was not available until November but was given another option of a wheel that could ship immediately. etrailer shipped the alternate wheel and I just received it within a few days. The wheel looks just like the original one ordered. I will definitely order from etrailer on all my trailer needs.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Overall the tires were what I expected but out of 4, 3 of them were missing valve stem caps. Just creates more of a pain to go find 3 more so the valves are protected. I was expecting them to be on a pallet but they were loose and had some scuffs and scrapes on the rims. Once again doesn’t affect performance just takes more of my time to get some silver paint to make sure I don’t have rust issues on brand new rims.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I upgraded my travel trailer to slightly larger wheels and after looking around at prices I settled on these from etrailer.com. I have had the trailer out for one trip (about 375 miles) traveling at a variety of speeds. The trailer handles like a champ and these tires met my expectations completely. You might wonder why this isn't a 5 star rating. Well with only one trip with a small number of miles under our belt I don't want to oversell the product

Great communication! Product was exactly as ordered and packaged perfect. Arrived today, as promised. Already mounted on my new trailer and looks great!

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


Had a blowout on the second use


Comments
I dont know how heavy your trailer is but you want to make sure you are not exceeding the weight capacity of the tires to avoid failure. It is also a good idea to run these tires at max PSI to avoid heat build up that leads to blow outs. Tire manufacturers require the tire to be used at max PSI to avoid failure which may have been the issue in the past. If the weight capacity of the tires was not enough for the weight of the trailer and its cargo then this load range upgrade will give you a higher capacity.

Review from a similar Provider Vesper in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I just received these so I can not comment on how good of a tire they are. I bought these to replace 7 year old tires on a cargo trailer that came with it originally.It probably has less than 5000 miles on it. If these last me another 7 years I will be happy. Not sure about having them filled with the nitrogen since this will be the first tires I have ever had it in. Will update review after I have a chance to drive with them on.

  • Should Trailer Wheels Have Washers Between The Wheel and Hub On a Flatbed Gooseneck Trailer?
    It definitely sounds like you should have a dual wheel setup like the Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Tire w/ 16" Vesper Silver Dual Wheel # TA96FR and 4 wheels and tires per axle. Since the highest weight capacity ST235/80R16 Tire # WE76FR is rated for 4,080lbs per tire this is almost a thousand pounds less than the axle capacity. And as they used washers to space out the wheels I also worry about the trailer stability by not having the wider wheel track you get with dually wheels.
