Trailer Wheel Measurements

In this video we are going to describe how to measure a trailer steel wheel. I have two examples here one is a 14 X 5-1/2, 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern steel wheel. This other one is a 16 X 6, 6 lug on 5 steel wheel, and the way to measure to know what size it is, on the diameter of the wheel, in other words what size tire will fit on this wheel is you want to measure from the inside to the inside where the bead seats and protrudes 60 inches. In other words thats the bead seat to the bead seat. You do not want to measure over all length from edge to edge, okay and to measure the width of the wheel. Again you will not want to measure, do not measure overall because it will show 7 inches incorrect.


How to Inspect a Trailer Wheel FAQ

When it comes to owning a trailer, there's some little things that you can do the properly maintenance your trailer. Today we're going to be looking at wheel inspection. When doing a wheel inspection, it's really important to check for weak points on your wheels. To begin our inspection, were going to to start here with our lug nuts. We're going to look around the lug nut holes and inspect to see if we see any cracks. The next thing we're going to do is we're going to go around the edge of our wheel and we're simply keeping an eye out for any chips or dents or damage that may have happened to the outer perimeter. Now keep in mind that over the life of the wheel, small chips will appear on the edge of the rim.


How to Torque Trailer Lug Nuts FAQ

When it comes to owning a trailer, proper maintenance is a necessity. Today, we're going to be showing you how to take care of your lug nuts and how to torque them down correctly. We're going to begin by reinstalling our wheel. We're going to take our lug nuts and thread them on hand tight. The nuts are going to have a flat side and a tapered side. We want to make sure that the taper side faces the wheel. Now with our lug nuts installed hand tight, we can go ahead and torque them down to specifications from the trailer manufacturer.

Tires and Wheels Questions and Answers

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range C and D ST175/80D13 Trailer Tires
  • The difference between an load range C and load range D tire in the same size is the capacity and psi rating. The two tires will still have the same dimensions and fit on the same wheel. The D rated tire has a higher capacity. For a ST175/80D13 like # AM1ST77, the capacity is 1,610 pounds at 65 psi. For a C load range in the same size, like # AM1ST76 , the capacity is 1,360 pounds at 50 psi. Adding the D load range tires of the same size will fit your trailer, but they will not allow...

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Tires for a 5th Wheel Trailer with 235/85-16 Tires
  • I recommend using an ST (special trailer) tire, like # AM10501. This is a load range F tire with a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 95 psi for a total capacity for 4 of 15,840 pounds. Another option that is a little less expensive is a load range E tire, # AM10295 that you referenced rated for 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. Four of these tires on a tandem axle trailer will provide a total capacity of 14,560 pounds. These are radial tires which will give you the best ride and longest life. Special...

  • Recommended ST225/75R15 Trailer Tires for 31-Ft 5th Wheel to Avoid Tire Blowouts
  • A trailer tire's worst enemy is heat. Excessive heat will weaken a tire and lead to its premature failure. The most common causes for a trailer tire to overheat are overloading it beyond its rated weight capacity and incorrect inflation pressure. If you replace Load Range E tires with F- or G-rated tires their higher weight capacity will tend to mean reduced operating temperatures, all other things being equal. And of course, all trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum...

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range B and C Trailer Tires of the Same Size
  • Trailer tires that are the same size but with different load ratings will have different capacities. A load range C tire will have a higher capacity than a load range B tire of the same size. The Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12 Inch White Wheel, # AM30660, that you have referenced has a capacity of 990 pounds at 90 psi and it is a load range C. The Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12 Inch White Wheel, # AM30580, has a capacity of 785 pounds at 60 psi and is a load range B.

  • ST205/75r14 Trailer Tire Vs. a ST205/75D14
  • Long story short, yes you can. But going with the ST205/75R14 would be a better replacement than a ST205/75D14 because the R in the first size means it is a radial tire whereas the D in the second size means it 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 of travel,...

  • Factors to Consider When Adding Larger Tires and Wheels to a Trailer
  • You can add larger wheels and tires to a trailer as long as you have enough room for the larger size. The main clearance issues we find when putting larger tires and wheels on a trailer is from the top of the tire to the fender and from the inside wall of the tire to the trailer wall/frame. The next factor that you will want to consider is the bolt pattern of the wheel. If your current wheels have a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern, then the new wheels must have a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern as...

  • Recommendation for the Best Trailer Wheel and Tire Size for Highway Towing
  • You are correct that many deck over trailers have lower height wheels and tires. The reason for this is to reduce the height of the deck for ease of loading and unloading and to reduce the propensity for the trailer to be top heavy which can be a factor that contributes to trailer sway. Trailer tires are not rated for high speed towing. As a general rule most trailer trailer tires and wheels are rated for 65 miles per hour depending on the manufacturer. The best way to select the...

  • What is the Difference Between Load Range E and F Trailer Tires in the Same Size
  • The difference between a load range E and load range F tire of the same size, 235/85-16, is the weight capacity and pressure. The Karrier Radial Tire, Load Range E, # AM10295, has a capacity of 3,640 pounds at 95 psi. The Load Range F Tire, # AM10501, has a capacity of 3,960 pounds at 95 psi. Trailer tires should always be inflated to the maximum psi rating indicated on the tire. If a tire is under inflated, it will cause the side wall to build up more heat faster and cause the tire...

  • What is Correct Tire Pressure for a 4.80-12 Size Americana Trailer Tire on a Viking Pop Up Camper
  • The amount of tire pressure you need in your 4.80-12 Americana tires depends on the load range of the tire. If it is a load range B, it will need to be at 65 psi like # AM10060. If it is a load range C, it will need to be at 90 psi like # AM10062. The trailer tire should state what load range it is on the side wall. Trailer tires should be inflated to their max psi rating listed on the tire sidewall for best performance and longevity. I have linked an article on trailer tire...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation for a 15 Inch Tire Size 7.00 x 15
  • The only 7.00 x 15 tire we carry is a light truck tire, # AM10414, that you referenced. The closest size to a 7.00x15 tire would be a 225/75-15. These tires can fit on a 6 to 7 inch wide rim. But they are a little taller at 28.1 inches versus 27.88 for a 7.00x15. Make sure to use ST trailer tires. The ST in front of the tire sizes indicates Special Trailer. Trailer tires are designed with a thicker side wall to handle more vertical load. An LT is a light truck tire and light truck tires...

  • Comparing Radial Trailer Tires and Bias Ply Trailer Tires
  • We actually have an FAQ article on trailer tires, part of which covers bias ply tires versus radial tires. I have posted the section below and I have also included a link to the whole FAQ article for you. The main difference between a radial ply and bias ply tire is how the tire is constructed. The cords underneath the tire are run in different directions. On a bias tire, the cords run at a 32 degree angle from the direction of travel and on a radial tire, the cords will run at 90 degrees...

  • What Size Trailer Tires Will Replace B78-13 Trailer Tires
  • A trailer tire size 175/80-13 will replace either an A78-13 or B78-13 trailer tire. A 175/80-13 is going to have 3 load ratings: B at 1,100 pounds at 35 psi, C at 1,360 pounds at 50 psi, and D at 1,610 pounds at 65 psi. This size will have a diameter of 24.1 inches. This tire size will fit on a 4-1/2, 5, or 5-1/2 inch wide wheel. If you choose tires rated higher than your axle, you still have to go by the axle weight capacity. If you choose tires rated lower than the axle capacity,...

  • How to Determine the Right Air Pressure to Fill a Trailer Tire
  • I can end this debate for you real fast! Trailer tires, which will have an ST in front of the size, should always be inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire. Trailer tires usually do not have a recommended and maximum psi indication so I am curious if the tries on the camper are ST tires or regular passenger vehicle tires. On a regular trailer tire you would inflate it to the max psi indicated on the tire because trailer tires are built with a thicker sidewall to handle more vertical...

  • Trailer Tire Recommendation in ST235/80R16 Load Range E
  • A lot people use the Goodyear tires. We also hear a lot of problems with them but that usually is a result of under inflation which is a problem for any trailer tire. Carlisle makes a good tire too. And Taskmaster, # TTWTRTM2358016E, which we do carry is a solid performer as well. There are some trailer manufacturers that use Taskmaster as their OEM tires. Taskmaster tire # TTWTRTM2358016E is a 235/80-16 load range E tire rated for 3,520 pounds at 80 psi. It also has an M speed rating...

  • What is the Difference Between Taskmaster Provider and Contender Trailer Tires
  • There is a quality difference between the Taskmaster Provider tire # TTWTRTM2358016E and the Taskmaster Contender, # C23516E. The biggest difference is in the tread. The Provider just has better tread. The Contender was meant as a less expensive radial alternative to a bias ply tire. If it were me I would go with the Provider # TTWTRTM2358016E because of the higher quality and tread difference. I have also included a link to a video review of the Provider as well as a link to our help...

  • What Do The Letters Mean in the ST205/75D15 C Tire Size on My Camping Trailer
  • On a trailer tire labeled ST205/75D15 C, the ST stands for Special Trailer which means it is designed for use on boat and utility trailers. The 205 is the section width of the tire in millimeters. The 75 is the aspect ratio (or section height). It means the section height of the tire is 75% of the 205 mm section width. The D is the designation for the internal construction of the tire. The D stands for diagonal or bias ply construction. That means the tire body plies inside the tire...

  • What does the D15 Mean in Tire Size ST205/75-D15
  • I think you are confusing the tire size numbers with load range. This size tire is available as a ST205/75-D15 or as a ST205/75-R15. The D indicates that the tire is a diagonal bias ply construction and the R indicates that the tire is a radial tire construction. Beyond the size and type, there are load ranges for tires. Most trailer tires are load range B, C or D. This number indicates how much weight the tire can bear at a certain inflation pressure. The tire and wheel combo you...

  • What is the Difference Between ST175/80D13 Tires and ST175/80R13 Trailer Tires
  • The D in 175/80D-13 indicates that it is a bias ply tire where as the R in 175/80r-13 indicates that it is a radial tire. The difference is how the steel belts inside are oriented. Bias ply tires are generally better in off road types of situations. Radial tires track better and run cooler. You do not want to mix the different construction types because that can lead to uneven wear and decreased ride quality. Each type of tire will have a load range such as # AM10210 which is a radial...

  • Tire and Wheel Recommendation To Replace 20.5x8x10 Trailer Tires and Wheels
  • For the 20.5x8x10, the new size is a 205/65-10. This would be the better tire for the long drives you plan on because it is a wider tire that will offer more stability. You can also get higher load capacities with the wider tire in this case if needed. I recommend the Loadstar K399 Bias Trailer Tire, # AM1HP56, for just a tire. This tire has a load capacity of 1,650 pounds at 90 psi. It is designed to fit on 10 by 6 inch rims. Trailer tires should be inflated to their maximum psi rating...

  • Recommendation for 4.80 x 12 Trailer Tire and Wheel Combo for Highway Speeds

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,...
