Expert Reply:

We have numerous 4.8-12 tire/wheel combos available depending on the bolt pattern you need. For a 4 on 4 bolt pattern, I recommend Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12 inch White Wheel, # AM30620. This is a load range C tire with a 6 ply rating and 990 pound capacity at 90 psi. It comes with a 12 inch white rim. This tire/wheel combo is rated for a maximum speed of 65 miles per hour.

For a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern, I recommend Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12 inch White Wheel, # AM30660. This is also a load range C tire with a 6 ply rating and 990 pound capacity at 90 psi. It also comes with a 12 inch white rim. This tire/wheel combo is also rated for a maximum speed of 65 miles per hour.

Trailer tires should also be inflated to their maximum psi rating for best performance and longest life. I have included an FAQ article below on determining bolt pattern on a trailer wheel.
