Expert Answers about Trailer Tires and Wheels


  • Difference Between Dexstar Dual Wheel Part # AM20783 and Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel Part # LHHA420
  • The Dexstar Dual Wheel part # AM20783 and the Lionshead Steel Dual Wheel part # LHHA420 are two very similar wheels with a few key differences. They are both 16" diameter x 6" wide wheels with a 8 on 6-1/2" lug pattern. However, the Lionshead wheel has a 3,500 lb weight capacity whereas the Dexstar wheel only has a 3,100 lb weight capacity. Another noticeable difference is that the Dexstar wheel is made in the U.S.A. and the Lionshead wheel is not. In order to install either wheel you will...

  • Can An Upgrade from Load Range E Tires to Load Range G Tires Work Without Changing the Wheels?
  • The answer is not a simple yes or no. The Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # PRG80235 has a load rating of 4,080 lbs at 110 psi. The similar load range E tires # TTWTRTM2358016E are load rated for 3,520 lbs at 80 psi. They are compatible with the same size wheels but they will have a different load capacity and will require a different valve stem for that increased psi. So if you were running the load range E tires on the Taskmaster Steel Modular Trailer Wheel...

  • Comparing Goodyear, Westlake, and Taskmaster/Provider Tires for Size ST2358R16
  • The three tire brands are all great in their own ways but the best all-around will be the USA made Goodyear part # 724860519 for the tire size of 235/85R16. It will be the most reliable, has the highest speed rating at 87 mph and like I mentioned it's the only one made in the USA. It is a Load Range of E. Westlake is the best non-USA tire part # LHWL410. This is actually a Load Range G (the Goodyear is only available in F) so if you need the higher capacity 4,080-lb max load at 110 psi...

  • Recommended Taskmaster G-Rated Special Trailer Tire in Size ST235/85-16
  • I am sorry about your 'white-knuckle' tire blowout on the interstate. I can help you select new tires that can help avoid a repeat of this awful experience. Your tire size ST235/80-16 has an overall diameter of just under 31-inches. The slightly larger size ST235/85-16 will fit on your same rims but in this size you have the options of a Load Range F tire, which offers nearly 500-lbs more capacity (more safety margin) per tire than the E-rated size ST235/80-16, and even a G-rated tire...

  • Securing Aluminum Wheels Correctly on Camper with 1/2 Inch Lugs
  • For your 5th wheel camper, the wheels will have holes that will fit the 1/2 inch and leave space for easy installation. The lug nut are coned to help center the wheel on the hub so there won't be any slop or issue. Wheels like the Aluminum HWT Hi-Spec Series 03 Mod Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 # AM22646 will have steel inserts to ensure the lugs will hold tight as you travel and allow you to tighten the lugs appropriately. You don't need to have any special lug nut as the...

  • What Does JJ Mean for a Trailer Wheel
  • Your trailer wheels' JJ designation just refers to the shape of the bead seat, which is where the inside edge of the tire contacts the rim. You never really need to worry about this though since the correct 205/75-15 size tires you buy for these rims will automatically have that bead seat profile. If you buy new 15 x 5 rims they again will have this bead profile. The photos of your trailer's sticker shows us that your wheels are 15 x 5-inch size and you noted that you believe they are...

  • Best Trailer Tire for Rockwood Camper with Tire Size 185/80-13
  • If your 2016 Rockwood Aframe camper A192HW has a tire size of 185/80-13 then the best tire we have as a replacement would be the Kenda part # AM10208 which is the size you need but it's a radial and the one you referenced is a bias ply. The main difference between a radial ply and a bias ply tire is how the tire is constructed. The cords inside a bias ply tire run at a 32 degree angle to the direction of travel, and the cords on a radial tire run at a 90 degree angle to the direction...

  • What is More Concerning With RV Tires- Tire Pressure or Tire Temperature?
  • I can understand how you might be alarmed at the increase in pressure, but the increase in pressure is to be expected and there isn't a danger zone in pressure as much as there should be concern about the heat buildup on the tires. Excessive heat is the worst enemy of tires and heat buildup can be caused by overloading of your RV or under-inflation of the tires. Westlake tires with a load range rating of G, like the # LHWL410 are designed to be inflated to 110 PSI when cold (you'll want...

  • Best 205/75-15 Tire for 7K Enclosed Motorcycle Trailer
  • I really like the Goodyear Endurance ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire # 724861519. It has a lead range of D (2,150 lbs at 65 psi), a max speed rating of 87 mph, plus it comes with a limited lifetime warranty with free tire replacement on workmanship defects. Obviously you'll need to remain under the load and speed ratings as well as practice good driving habits and keep it filled to the recommended psi rating for the best performance of the tire. We have this mounted on a white spoke...

  • Recommended Air Compressor for a Small 90 Psi Trailer Tire
  • The best portable air compressor we have to fill a small trailer tire like part # AM10062 to 90 psi is the Bulldog Winch Portable Air Compressor part # BDW41003. This compressor is actually rated to 150 psi and attaches to the battery via alligator clamps. The reason you will want at least a 150 psi compressor is because it would take ages to fill the tire to 90 psi with a 100 psi air compressor which is the next most common size. The alligator clamps will also allow the compressor to run...

  • Are Provider Trailer Tires Made in the USA?
  • So far the only Radial trailer tire made in the USA is the Goodyear Endurance tire. The Provider tires are made overseas, but I definitely don't consider these tires to be "China Bombs" that some people talk about. I'm personally a big fan of the Provider line and I replaced all of the 10 ply Goodyear Marathon tires on our 16,000-lb gooseneck trailer with the 14 ply Provider tires - ST235/80R16, # PRG80235, over 3 years ago and I couldn't be happier with them.

  • 110 PSI Valve Stems for Trailer Tires
  • In almost all cases the limiting factor for tire pressure on a wheel setup is the valve stem. If you upgrade the valve stem in your wheels to ones that can handle 110 psi like what the part # AM10501 calls for you'd be fine. Usually valve stems that are rated for 110 psi will be metal such as # AM20906.

  • Dimensions and Capacity of Provider ST235/85R16 Load Range G Tires
  • The Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # PRG80235 are rated for 4,080 lbs at 110 psi and speeds up to 81 mph. You will see that we have 16 inch wheels that are rated for up to 4,400 lbs but when combined with this tire, you will be limited by the lesser weight capacity. For instance the Provider ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 16" White Mod Wheel - 8 on 6-1/2 - Load Range G # A16R80GWM has a steel wheel rated for 4,400 lbs but the tire is only rated for 4,080,...

  • Trailer Wheel and Tire Recommendation for Size 4.80-12 with Higher Speed Rating
  • Whenever available I always recommend going with trailer tires that are rated for higher than 65 mph. It's too easy to accidentally go faster than 65 on the highway even when pulling a trailer so it's always a good idea to have some cushion there. So for your tire size of 4.8R12 I recommend the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire w/ 12" Silver Mod Wheel # AT12R45SM. This has the 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you need as well as has a Load Range C tire that has an 81 mph speed rating....

  • Can a Load Range C Tire Replace a Load Range B Tire
  • The Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire # AM30660 that has the 12" white wheel will work just fine for your boat trailer needs. This combination does have the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt hole pattern and comes in a load range C (990 lbs at 90 psi). You can use a tire with a lower weight rating as long as you are not overloading the tire. This is one of the bigger reasons for blowouts. Although it does cost more, I recommend going with the Kenda Karrier S-Trail ST145/R12 Radial Tire # AM31202 instead....

  • Does Goodyear Endurance 225/75R15 Trailer Tire 724857519 Require Dynamic Balancing
  • Trailer tires such as the Goodyear Endurance ST225/75R15 Radial # 724857519 do not absolutely have to be dynamically machine balanced the way passenger car tires do but you certainly can do this if you want to. A full-service tire shop will probably have the necessary equipment to do this. In most instances the benefit of dynamically balancing trailer tires will not be nearly as noticeable as it is on passenger vehicle tires since any vibration from the trailer tires is isolated from...

  • Comparing the Castle Rock and Westlake ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire

In short, Lionshead is the brand and Westlake/Castle Rock is the model. The main difference between these two is that the Castle Rock tire has a load range D (2,540 lbs) and the Westlake tire has a load range E (2,830 lbs) rating. The Westlake tire would give you more of a cushion for your 10,000 lb trailer so that...

  • Can Westlake 235/80R16 Trailer Tires be Replaced with Westlake 235/85R16 Tires
  • The 235/85R16 size Westlakes, part # LHWL410, are an inch larger in diameter compared to the 235/80R16s part # LHWL401. So you need to make sure there's an extra half inch of clearance between the tire and the underside of the fender. You want a total of at least 3 to 4 inches of clearance. Another thing to consider is the larger tires have a maximum psi of 110 pounds and trailer tires should always be inflated to their max. This is important because the valve stems on your wheels...

The weight capacity of the tire is 1,710 lbs at 65 psi. I attached a review video for this tire for you to check out for more info as well.

  • Recommended Wheel for ST225/75R15 Goodyear Endurance Tire on a 6,000 lb Travel Trailer

This has a load range of E (2,830 lbs at 80 psi) and a max speed of 87 mph just like what you currently have. For a wheel I recommend the Dexstar Steel Mini Mod Trailer Wheel # AM20539 which is a silver color, has the same weight rating, comes with a limited 2-year warranty, and is made here in the USA. According to the attached psi chart from Goodyear the max amount of pressure that this...

Because that size of pilot diameter is only available on 8-lug wheels and not the 5-lug wheel you need, there is the option of getting a...

  • How to Determine Correct Load Rating for Spare ST205/75-14 Trailer Tire and Wheel
  • The way you determine the correct load rating for your tires is to ensure their capacity exceeds the GVWR of your trailer. The reason for this is the GVWR is the maximum load your trailer and its cargo (in your case a boat) will be. The highest capacity ST205/75-14 tire and wheel combos are from Westlake, which are load range D and have a 2,040 lb capacity when inflated to their maximum psi, which is 65. These Westlake tires and wheels are designed for use on boat trailers and are...

I recommend using the Phoenix USA QuickTrim Hub Cover for Trailer Wheels # PXQT545BHS which is a matching black color and will fit the 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern of this wheel. I have added a photo that a customer sent in showing this cover being used on a black wheel so you can see how it would...

  • Can 185/80-13 Trailer Tires Replace 175/80-13 Tires on Camper
  • With trailer tires, the rule of thumb is that you want to have at least 3 inches of clearance from the top of the tire to your fender and at least 1 inch of clearance from the inside of the tire to the frame rail. So with that in mind you can switch to a larger tire if you still have that much clearance. Your current ST175/80R13 trailer tire, such as the Provider # TTWTRTM1758013C measures 24 inches in diameter when fully inflated and is 7 inches wide. A ST185/80R13 trailer tire, such...

Most tires in this size have a much lower capacity so I would not be shocked if the reason your current tires are junk is that you are overloading them. The...

  • The modern equivalent to the 20.5x8.0-10 size tires on your pontoon trailer is the 205/65-10 size, which would fit your existing wheels without issue. The highest rated trailer tire we have available in this size is the Kenda Loadstar K399 Bias # AM1HP56, which features a maximum load of 1,650 pounds at 90 psi. This would give you a combined load of 3,300 for a nice safety margin with your trailer that weighs under 3,000 pounds when loaded. This particular tire does also have an excellent...

  • Recommendation for Smallest Tire to Create Lower Deck Height on 7 Ton Trailer
  • The best trailer tire for your setup is going to depend on the amount of axles that are on the trailer. This info is needed to ensure that the combined load capacity of all the tires will meet or exceed the 7 ton loaded weight of the trailer. For example a tandem axle setup would give you 4 tires so each tire by itself would need a load capacity of at least 3,500 pounds. For this type of capacity you are going to need at least a 16 inch tire and wheel. The smallest 16 inch tire we have...

Based on your question, where it seems like you regularly dip into the 80's on the highway on the way to the ocean, this superior speed rating alone does push me towards the Goodyear Endurance Tire.

With that being said, it is never good to run tires faster than their speed rating because then you run the risk of overheating and possible tire failure so I can't really recommend going faster than 81 mph with this tire. The only option for a faster speed rating is to upgrade to something like the Goodyear Endurance # 724864519 (speed rating of 87...

  • Aluminum Wheel PSI Fit with Tires Requiring 110 PSI

Many wheel assemblies come with a valve stem rated for 65 psi or 80 psi at most. However, when a wheel like the one you asked the question from mentions a high pressure metal valve stem is included, this means that wheel will have a stem similar to # AM20906. This will hold the 110 lbs you referenced. For your compatible tires, I recommend the...

  • Can a Radial 225/75-15 Size Tire be Used as a Replacement with Other Bias Tires of Same Size
  • Although radial tires are better for highway use if you are currently using bias tires and you are only replacing one then you need to get a bias. Even if the radial and bias tires you are using are rated for trailers they track and wear slightly differently. To replace your bias tire I recommend the Kenda Loadstar ST225/75D15 # AM1ST96 which has a load range D ( 2,540 lbs at 65 psi) and a speed rating of 81 mph.

  • Yes, as long as the actual tire size is the same, a radial ply tire like the Kenda ST185/80R13 # AM10208 will fit onto the wheel just the same as the bias alternative # AM1ST79 it's replacing. Radial trailer tires differ from bias models due to the 90 degree angle the cords run to the direction of travel (compared to a 32 degree angle on bias). This allows radials to flex a bit more for better ground contact and stability. The physical fit onto an existing wheel and trailer suspension...
