We can help you select new 5.30-12 tires or this size tire pre-mounted on a 4-lug wheel if you prefer.

All the 5.30-12 tires we offer are bias ply types; no radial tires are offered in this size. I suggest you use a Load Range D tire, part # AM10068 rated for 1,250-lbs at 105-psi pressure, since this will give you some safety margin. Tires that are operated conservatively - below their maximum capacity - will tend to run cooler and last longer. Heat is the enemy for any trailer tire. Radials do tend to run cooler than bias ply types and they provide better ground contact and more flex which tend to improve ride quality.

If you prefer a pre-mounted tire/wheel you can review the linked page to see Load Range C tire/wheel items; we do not have load range D tires already mounted on a 4-on-4 wheel. These C-rated tire/wheels like # AM30780 are rated for 1,045-lbs at 80-psi pressure.

Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum pressure as noted on the tire sidewall; it is never appropriate to run a trailer tire with lower or higher cold tire pressure than what is indicated on the tire itself.
