Provider Radials

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.


Close up of prg80235 tread

The standard tread on this tire has solid, continuous ribs, and there are very few sipes (or thin grooves) cut into the rubber. This tire is designed for use on trailers, so it doesn't require the level of traction that would be needed on a vehicle that is braking or steering.


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.

I have been using these on a dump trailer for a couple of years. Although very durable, they are horrible to try and balance. One of them took 8 ounces. I just had another have a belt issue where the tire came completely out of round so badly that the shake transferred to the truck and I thought I had a front end issue. Not sure I will buy any more of these. 845782

After multiple blowouts using E range tires I decided to try these G range tires out. Have not installed them yet, but these are beefy tires and look much better than anything I’ve bought before. Went ahead and bought the metal valve stems with the tires. Can’t wait to get on the road with these. 573409


Comments
The primary cause of premature tire failure is excessive heat build-up. The main causes of excess heat are overloading the tire, exceeding the tires speed rating and improperly inflating the tire. Each tire has a 4,080 lbs capacity if used as a single or 3,640 lbs if used as a dual. The tire carries an M speed rating, good for up to 81 mph and the tire should always be kept to its maximum

i haven't traveled with these yet, but expectations are totally positive. These are among only a couple of models with a speed rating (M- 81MPH) that will give me peace making use of the 75 MPH limits here. I am surprised these are not available locally, but dealing with etrailer was so straightforward it doesn't really matter. etrailer promptly shipped all 5 tires as a group of individual boxes, and the parcel service's processes didn't keep them all together. I received three tires on Friday, and due to the holiday weekend, didn't see the other two until the following Tuesday! The carrier's tracking system statused them as 'Delivered' on Friday. I don't know how frequently that happens. Anyway, etrailer answered all my questions in detail prior to purchase. I'm pleased with the responsiveness and efficient business operation, and I will be back. 270964

Tires arrived fast. These tires are an upgrate to my previous load range C tires. I like the 81 M.P.H. speed rating for long hauls on the interstate. These tires will be used on a carhauler. I have used these tires for a year and they have held up well. 478834

Review from a similar Provider Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I ordered 5 of these 14 ply G rated tires for my 28' enclosed autohauler trailer because I had one of my current E rated tires go flat and another on the same side blow out on my last trip. This is the same problem I have had on my 43' Toyhauler where I have had 4 blowouts with extensive damage to the side of my rig. After much research and reading reviews I decided to go with G rated tires instead of the Es that came with my trailer and RV. These support much more weight per tire than the E tires. After researching eTrailer had the best prices, free and very fast shipping, and the reviews for this particular tire when I purchased 7 of them for my RV was 122 out of 122, 5 stars! These tires are flat on top and very heavy duty! Just the difference I can see with the weight and tread are far superior to any E rated rounded tread tire. I highly recommend that anyone purchasing an RV or heavy duty trailer either insist on G rated tires before purchase or change them ASAP after your pruchase. Read the reviews and trust my own experience when I say YOU WILL HAVE A BLOWOUT...it is a matter of time and it WILL NOT be a convienient time, and you WILL most likely encounter damage to your investment! The only thing I forgot to order this time with my 5 new G rated tires is metal valve stems. These tires require 110 psi rather than 80 psi so you MUST HAVE the metal valve stems. It was a pain for me to find them in my local area when I could have just pruchased them from eTrailer like I did the last time for my RV. I am a happy customer of eTrailer and highly recommend thier products...and no they are not paying me to say that! LOL. 560881

Review from a similar Provider Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I chose the Taskmaster ST radial tire for its speed rating, ride quality and highway handling. The ratings I read placed it a close second to the Maxxis ST radial which I consider the best ST radial. The Taskmaster is priced so attractively I couldn't pass it up. Along with the tires I purchased new Dexstar wheels which were a direct replacement for the wheels on my trailer. The old wheels had weathered from the Az sun and had many miles on them. The great price e-trailer offers these wheels for made my decision an easy one. I chose the Provider tire and silver mod wheel combination for my spare setup. The provider tire is nearly identical to the Taskmaster and the mod wheel it came mounted on is also very similar to the Dexstar wheel I purchased. This is a quality setup at a great price. My overall experience at e-trailer was exceptional. Great prices, rapid, properly packaged shipping with outstanding follow up and customer service. I highly recommend this company! 172335


Comments
The Taskmaster tires are the best trailer tires Ive ever used. The ride quality as far better than any bias ply trailer tire and the traction is better due to tire design. I also feel a lot better about running 65 MPH on these tires. Ill buy them again!

Review from a similar Provider Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


After 2 1/2 years of painful experience with a prominent brand of tires on our fifth wheel, torn up sides and skirts and having to change tires on Interstate Highways... If you have a 2012-2013 Keystone Montana or similar, you no doubt know which piece of garbage I am talking about. (Does Marathon ring any bell?) Having gone through 5 of 8 tires in 2 years, I bought 4 of these G rated Taskmaster Providers for our fifth wheel. In my case I had 6 inch wheels, so we also went to 6.5 inch wheels as specified by the tire specs. Had them balanced and there are now 5,000+ miles on them, performing flawlessly and tread looks like new. This is the solution, folks! 414368

After wearing out two sets of light duty tires I decided to go with the 14 ply Providers. We got 6 & 7000 miles out of the first two sets, stock and a set of Goodyear Endurance. The Providers have got over 4000 miles and you can’t see any wear at all. Plus the stiffer sidewall let it sway much less. We really like them. Recommend them to anyone wanting better load capacity and handling. 717803

These have performed flawlessly. I have blown many a tire on my trailers, some new and only a few months old. These are Currently on Forest River Wildcat MAXX 5th wheel. I have used these a year and no problem. Here in the West the Temps are above 100 degrees and speed limits of 75 mph. I you have repeatedly blown tires think about speed rating. My old tires would come apart at highway speeds. These are rated at 81 mph. Easy math, speed limit 70 mph pass a truck and you will exceed 80 mph easy. I recommend these to anyone who is driving on highways with speeds above 65 mph. 707797

Have yet to put any significant miles on them, but overall am very pleased with my purchase. They are a very sturdy, well made tire with a great tread pattern.

Review from a similar Provider Radial in Trailer Tires and Wheels


I mounted and (static mode) balanced 4 of these for my RV. The sidewalls and the beads are very thick. I put 105 psi in them. I was worried about a rough ride but they actually pulled very smooth. Not on thing shook loose over 2200 miles. The tires stayed cool. When I set my breaks up I dropped my gain back 7.5 to 7.0. These tires slid slightly at about 5 mph with 12000# on them. The OEM tires seemed softer @ 80 psi and I figured this is what prompted the adjustment. If you plan to dynamically balance them,be ready to part with some weights. Like any big heavy duty tire, the side walls tend to have heavier heavy spots. I’ve learned that good balancing on highway tires saves interior,suspension components,light bulbs,welds,bearings and tires. I’ll report back in a few thousand miles. We will see how they do in this Louisiana heat. 619888

We have put over 7000 miles on the tires. Very little wear. It is pretty amazing how well they hold air. The temps run very low on the road. So far, so good.

Very pleased with my purchase. This tire is perfect for my boat trailer, since I have a 20 ft. Deep V double haul boat that came with a single axle trailer. I have had two blow outs on my other 6 ply tires. I received them last night, I even received a email from George at etrailer telling me that my tires had been delivered. I had them installed today and plan on taking the boat out for a run. With a single axle trailer, I'm so happy with the D load rating. I will purchase more soon for my RV Trailer. Thanks, George and Tori B 275152

    The difference between a 235/80R16 trailer tire and 235/85R16 trailer tire is a very slight increase in capacity and about one inch in diameter when inflated. Both tires are 9.3" wide, but a 235/80R16 is 30.8" in diameter and a 235/85R16 is 31.7" in diameter. The general rule is you want at least 3" of clearance from the top of the tire to your fender, so you can take a measurement to see if you have that space, and you can go to larger tires if you like.

  • Replacing Underrated Tires on a 42 Foot Montana 5th Wheel Trailer
    Fifth wheel trailer manufacturers assume that some of the weight of the trailer is carried by the tow vehicle. So it often seems like the tires on them are underrated for the gross trailer weight. And that is true. However they also assume that the trailer is going to be towed perfectly level which isn't always true. So if you were towing the trailer nose high for example there would be more weight on the trailer axles and that could overload the tires. It would not hurt to go to 235/85-16...
