Expert Answers about Trailer Tires and Wheels


  • 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....

  • Which Hubcaps for AM20766 Dexstar 16 Inch Conventional Steel Wheel
  • The # PX1309SS Phoenix USA Baby Moon hub caps are compatible with the # AM20766 Dexstar 16 inch conventional steel wheel you referenced. This being said, we sell these wheels as trailer wheels. They aren't intended for use on a passenger vehicle.

  • 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...

  • Speed Rating of 8 Inch Trailer Tires
  • We have several different tire sizes that fit on 8 inch wheels but they all have the same 65 MPH speed rating. They're all bias Kenda tires and I've linked video reviews of each of them for you. # AM10002 is 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range B # AM10004 is 4.80/4.00-8 - Load Range C # AM40537 is 18x8.50-8 - Load Range B # AM10010 is 5.70-8 - Load Range B # AM10012 is 5.70-8 - Load Range C # AM1HP22 is 165/65-8 - Load Range C # AM1HP28 is 215/60-8 - Load Range D

  • Best ST235/80R16 Load Range G Trailer Tire
  • I do have suggestions, and because there are no American-made ST235/80R16 load range G tires I suggestion going with the best one overall, and I recommend the Premium Trailer Contender ST235/80R16 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range G # PTCG80235. This tire is a superior option to the because of its deep 11/32" tread depth, its tread wear indicator which shows if the tire happens to be wearing so you can stay safe, and the fact it not only meets Dept. of Transportation specifications but...

  • Westlake 235/75-15 Tire on 5 on 4-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • I'm unable to find a Westlake CR875, even on their website so I'm unable to determine what exact wheel that is. Since we only offer that ST235/75-15 tire mounted on a 6-on 5-1/2 inch wheel, you'd need to purchase the wheels and tires separately and have them mounted locally as we don't have the equipment to do so here. We sell the tire individually as part # WST54FR. and we offer the following 15 x 6 wheels with a 5-on 4-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern: -# LHSO320B -# LH44FR -# 274-000031 -#...

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • Tire Pressure and Valve Stem Compatible with Aluminum HWT Series S5 16 Inch Trailer Wheel
  • I went out to our warehouse and physically looked at the Aluminum HWT Series S5 Trailer Wheel - 16" x 6-1/2" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - Black # AM22658HWTB for you. There is no psi rating on the wheel. I reached out to my contact at HWT and they stated the psi will be limited by the valve stem used. So I checked the valve stems and the steel # AM20906 is not compatible due to the washer and nut on the outside. You can use the Americana High Pressure Rubber Snap-In Valve Stem - 1-1/4" Long -...

  • 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...

  • Do Trailer Tires Require Balancing with Weights?
  • Trailer Tires do not require balance weights based on their design and function. They are balanced based on high point and low point of the wheel and tire being used together. The high point is marked on the tire and will be placed in line with the valve stem on the trailer wheel. You can have them balanced using weights but you will need to use a pin plate adapter for the wheel to balance correctly as they are different that vehicle wheels. All of our combinations come ready to...

  • ST205/75R15 Trailer Tire and Black Wheel With 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern and Center Cap

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • High-Speed 4.80R12 Tire Recommendation for Motorcycle Coffin Trailer
  • The best option for your current setup is the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire # TT48012C as you noted due to the 81 mph speed rating. 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...

These all actually considered higher quality radial options but the best one for your application will come down to your particular speed vs load rating needs.

  • 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...

  • Speed rating for Tires that Fit a 14.5" Wheel
  • We do typically recommend using bias tires for off-road applications like farm use, but until the radial tires came out, bias was the standard and so there is no harm in using them on the highway, they just won't perform as well as radials. The speed rating for the Kenda 8-14.5 tires, part # AM10333 (load range F - 2,835 lbs at 100 psi) and # AM10289 (load range G - 3,070 lbs at 116 psi), is 65 mph.

Keep in mind that bias ply tires are for rough terrain, off road, or agricultural work. If you're going to be mostly traveling on the highway, I recommend radial tires. Radial tires have a softer sidewall that helps dissipate heat when driving and is not as stiff as bias ply tires. Heat...

  • Can Jaguar Trailer Wheel Fit a 215/75-14 Size Wheel
  • The reason you see more stylish wheels on 205/75-14 size tires is because most of our better looking wheels are from Lionshead, like the Jaguar # LHJA1455BMF that's the wheel for the # 274-000027 combo you looked at. Lionshead wheels are going to be on Westlake tires and we don't carry a 215/75-14 size Westlake tire. With that being said, the Jaguar wheel I mentioned, part # LHJA1455BMF, can fit on a 215/75-14 tire like the Goodyear # 724865519. The wheel is 5-1/2 inches wide which is...

Instead, take a look at a 5.30-12 or a 4.80-12 size tire. The former is about a half inch larger in diameter and the latter is about an inch smaller. You also didn't specify a wheel type or bolt pattern. The one you asked from was a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. All of our tire and wheel combos of those...

Only other option would be to go with just the wheel part # LHSJ101G and then the tire part # AM1ST79 which is M speed rated for 81 mph.

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. The high speed rating though isn't the only thing that sets the Goodyear...

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...

The similar load range E tires # TTWTRTM2358016E are load rated for 3,520 lbs at 80 psi.

  • Recommended Replacement Wheels for 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern
  • Thank you for the photo of your old wheel. That is extremely helpful in this case.To answer your main question, the measurement of the bolt pattern is going to be the most important factor in replacing the wheels on your trailer. The hub bore dimension won't be an important consideration since most wheels now are lug centric-meaning that they're centered and supported by the lug studs on your wheel. With that being said, it looks like you have an old Dexstar 17-384 wheel that has a...

  • 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.

  • Will the Goodyear Endurance ST205/75R15 Trailer Tire Work On Wheel With 50 PSI Rating

  • Can a Load Range C Tire Replace a Load Range B Tire

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.

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 of travel, or across the tire from wheel lip to wheel lip.
