Taskmaster Radials

Taskmaster radials have 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. Taskmaster radials are bake tested - a process usually reserved for automotive tires - to ensure that the rubber holds up over time.

Radial tire vs bias tire graphic

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.

Radial tire has a ply rating of 6 and a 990-lb max load at 90 psi. Constructed of double steel belts and double polyester cords with a nylon overlay. Great for highway use. Fits 12" wheels.


I bought this tire due to it being one of the most expensive tires on the market. I want my jet ski safe and not on crap tires. I have a triton trailer. I used a ceramic coating on them to hopefully extend their life.


Bought a year ago, have not driven with them a lot, but my purpose was to provide margin for highway travel over the stock tires on my Malone kayak trailer (nothing wrong with the stock tires but 65 mph max rating and bias ply construction). The new tires track nice and show no signs of abnormal wear. While the loaded trailer is about 400 lbs, I run the tires at side wall max of 90 psi. From what I have read to date, it seems trailer tires recommendations cluster around the position to run side wall max, 90 psi for these. Delivery was fast as it has always has been with etrailer. Very happy customer.


Galvanized rim for trailer spare. We live near salt water, and I only buy galvanized rims. Had to buy the tire, valve stem, and rim separately as this size radial tire is not sold as a combo-package, only sell bias ply tires on painteNd rims as combo package. If there was an option to have etrailer mount the tire, I didn’t see it. Fortunately, some of us old guys still know how to put a tire on a rim. The tire, rim & high pressure valve stem are all excellent quality (you always have to smooth the galvanized “barnacles” on a new rim in the seal area). Shipping & delivery was fast, and the tire mounted and inflated easily.

This spare tire fits my trailer mounted manlift, and my son’s 30’ RV trailer. Used it for a short period while I got a new replacement tire. No problems, it’s cheap insurance against getting stranded.
Clifford - 03/21/2022


The finish on this wheel was pretty rough. It appeared to have curb rash on the circumference and there were paint flakes in the lug nut/ valve stem holes. It’s hard to tell if this was a brand new wheel with a horrible paint job that also dripped down all on one side or if it was welded and refurbished and then sold as new. The tire mounted OK, with no apparent leaks so far. I guess it will be OK for my Harbor Freight light utility trailer, unless it starts leaking or it comes apart some how.


This tire does not fit standard wheel 12-4J. It is narrow. This China made tire is good but marked for 12-3.75 wheel. It is on the side wall of the tire. etrailer did not specified required wheel size. I would go with different options if I would know this.


Radials with a top speed rating of 81 mph.

only tires I could find with a high speed rating.

Works great, the only trailer tire for speeds up to 81 mph on the market.

Replacement tires for my Aluma MCTXL trailer. Pull behind motorcycle.


The tires were delivered to my front door very quickly and the quality looks great. Can't wait to get them mounted.


Replaced bias ply tires on jet ski trailer (Triton aluminum) with these radials. Went on 3700 mile trip across 9 states, 7 lakes. Rotated mid-trip. Slight wear but overall held up really well. Jet ski is 768lbs dry weight. Previous 800 mile trip ruined bias ply tires, especially low side. Very pleased!


I have previously ran these tires for 4 seasons (one set)on my boat trailer with excellent results.This will be my second set,so hopefully they are as good as the first.They are worlds better than the bias ply tires.I would go thru a set of bias ply tires in a season these last much longer.


Tire was deformed and useless.

Thank you for your review about your experience with etrailer. We recently sent you a new tire and were wondering if you had any feedback about the product for other shoppers?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 09/23/2022


Seem to be of good quality. Willing to trust in their usage for !y trailer loads.


Great great great - drive fast and feel secure. I have 5,000 miles on them mostly over 70 mph.


I like radials but I am not happy with this tire. That said, I did purchase two more as they are the only radial tires in this size that I can find. Before, I was using a 4 ply tire on my trailer that lasted about 2 years. After losing the entire outer tread, I decided to go with this more expensive radial believing it would last longer. IT DID NOT. I got less than 5,000 miles out of it on a 500 pound trailer before the center belt shredded on the left wheel. Perhaps this tire was defective. I’ll try another to find out. Tried loading a picture to show but it say unsuccessful. Guess bad reviews are not shown.

Since trailer tires are built with a thicker side wall they are designed to take a heavier load so they dont really have a mileage rating. Most trailer tires last 5-6 years before they should be replaced. However, there a few reasons for failure. Heat buildup is the leading reason for blow outs so it is a good idea to keep your trailer under the weight capacity of the tires. Overloaded tires allow for heat build up which leads to blow outs. These tires also require max PSI at all times. If they are underinflated tires also leads to heat buildup.

Great tires that took me on a 3200 mile ride pulling two bikes. Came home and the tires look new.


Tires look good but I can’t review because according to your not appropriate standards your performed terrible.


No problems yet. Handle fine at any spe ed


Tires arrived in good shape, wearing we ll.


Tires are doing great. Did a long trip from Florida to Texas. Smooth riding. I bought tire to permit driving at speed from 72-75 mph. All is well. They are great! Thank you for the thorough information before I purchased.


I had standard non radial tires on my small boat trailer. Had several flats as I typically travel over 60 miles each way to my fishing spots. After research I found that a radial tire is better designed for highway travel. This size tire is hard to find in a radial. Purchased two from Etrailer with quick delivery. Since I have owned the tires, I have had no issues. (knock on wood) Very pleased.


Product arrived on time packaged neatly with all 3 tires in a box. Tires were date coded Dec 2016, so a little old but should give a couple years service I hope. Tires were in great shape. Replacing the bias ply tires on my teardrop trailer to hopefully get better service on the highway. Time will tell, but have had good luck so far using etrailer for parts on the teardrop.

After a year tires are wearing great on the trailer. These are the best tires that have been on the trailer. A couple thousand miles on them so far. Definitely will put another set of them on the tear when these wear out.
Clarence - 06/11/2019


Runs Cool, Rolls Far, looks great.


So far everything we'll done. Ordered on a Sunday evening around 7 est. Tires shipped Monday around 4am cst. No special shipping fees and tires arrived Wednesday. Been paying 60 for a bias tire and getting about 6000 miles. Hope these radials last a year. Also saw complaints around the web of getting old tires. Mfr date 4/21. So relatively new tires.


Great product fast delivery great customer service I will be ordering from you again.

Fantastic, I’m planning on buying the same tire again when it is time to replace them.
Caleb - 05/13/2021


Quick delivery! Tires look good. Getting them on today. Hopeful that they will perform as good as they look.

  • Can Trailer Upgrade From 4.80-12 Tires to 5.30-12 Tires With Less Than 3 Inches of Clearance
    There is a solution for you, but the recommended clearance from the top of your trailer's tires to your fender is at least three inches and since you said you were already just under that I do not recommend going to the 1.4 inch larger 5.30-12 tire; there just won't be enough clearance to allow for suspension travel. Instead, I recommend the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT48012C which has a speed rating of M, which is 81 MPH. Radial tires are superior for use on highways, which...

    You are definitely going to need radial tires for highway speeds and the best option is the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT48012C. Radial trailer tires are constructed in a manner so they have cords which run at 90 degrees to the direction of travel. This ensures it will flex more than a bias tire, which means it has more traction, stability and will run cooler, allowing it to last longer and making it the best option for highway travel.

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for Boat Trailer with Tire Size 4.8-12
    It sounds like either size would fit and work well, but since in the 4.8-12 tire size we have a radial that's the size I would recommend. Radials have higher speed ratings, are a bit more stable, and are better designed for highway use whereas bias ply tires are better for off-road applications. So the tire I recommend is the Taskmaster part # TT48012C which has a weight capacity of 990-lb max load at 90 psi and has a speed rating of 81 mph so it will be a really great option for you.

  • Highest Speed Rating for a 4.80 x 12 Trailer Tire
    The speed rating limitation for a trailer will come down to the tires, it has little to nothing to do with the axle, hub, or wheel size. That said, smaller tires generally do have lower speed ratings but you do not need to upgrade the wheels on your trailer in order to use a tire with a higher speed rating. I recommend the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire part # TT48012C which has radial plies that you will want for highway use and an 81 speed rating which should be plenty. I like...

The psi will need to be adjusted while cold and you must use the max psi in order to retain the full weight capacity of the tire. That said, the 4.80-12 tires we offer like the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire part # TT48012C will need to be filled to 90 psi.

  • Recommended Replacement for 4.80-12 Trailer Tire
    The 4.80-12 trailer tire is still made to this day so if that is what you have and need replaced, I recommend the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire part # TT48012C which is the only 4.80-12 trailer tire we offer with a radial ply. This is important because the radial ply will have cooler temperatures on the highway when compared to a bias ply you have now which translates to them lasting longer and are less likely to experience a blowout. The above also has an 81 mph speed rating unlike...

  • Is Trailer Tire Capacity the Sum of All Tires
    Yes, you do add the load capacity of the trailer tires to get their total weight-bearing capacity. As an example the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # TT48012C has a 990 lb capacity so two of these would have a 1,980 lb capacity in total. I have added a link to a trailer tire help article which I recommend checking out as well as a link to our selection of trailer tires.

It's rated up to 81 mph and has ply rating of 6 so the weight of your trailer shouldn't be an issue at all. It's capacity is 990 pounds at 90 psi.
