Can a Radial 225/75-15 Size Tire be Used as a Replacement with Other Bias Tires of Same Size


I have a dual axle trailer with 225/75/15 bias tires. Only need one replaced - can I choose a radial, which is what you recommend for long hauls?

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.

If you are wanting to change them all to radial then I highly recommend the Goodyear Endurance ST225/75R15 # 724857519 which is the best tire we offer in this size due to the construction of the tire. It has a load rating of E (2,830 lbs at 80 psi) and a speed rating of 87 mph.

Attached are review videos for both tires that you can check out.
