Part #: HPRTWK13
Aluminum wheels and radial tires for your Kendon trailer.
Part #: HPRTWK13
Style: Radial tire
Radial tires are a significant upgrade in every performance category over standard Bias Ply Constructed Tires. They last longer, rider smoother and quieter and track better than Bias Ply Tires.
Aluminum Wheels are not just about the great looks. They are lighter, stronger and since they are cast, they have tighter tolerances than a welded steel wheel. They also run cooler. We’ll go back to “They look great.” We believe that Trailers deserve cool looking wheels too.
Your standard trailer tires will eventually wear out. When you are ready to replace your standard tires, it’s a great time to go to radials. The performance improvement and better wear far outweigh the difference in price in our opinion. You will feel the difference in ride quality between a bias tire to a radial tire.
Key Aluminum Wheel and Radial Tire features and benefits.
Bias tires are constructed through a different manufacturing technique as well as differing in the type of rubber used in the compounding process (as a rule – synthetic rubber for radials – natural rubber for bias. You can equate this to synthetic oil vs. standard oil). Internally, bias tires have the plies (support) of nylon/polyester cords laid at a 30-45 degree angle which typically alternate direction between plies: hence the name bias. Bias tires are sometimes referred to as cross-ply as well. The bias “footprint” of the tire does flex/distort under load which decreases heat dissipation as well as decreasing the life of the tread.
A radial tire is constructed with rubber coated; reinforcing polyester/steel cable belts that are assembled parallel and run from side to side (bead to bead) at an angle of 90 degrees to the circumferential centerline of the tire (hence the name radial). This makes the tire more flexible which reduces rolling resistance to improve fuel economy. Numerous rubber coated steel belts are then constructed into the “crown” of the tire (under the tread) to from a strong two-stage unit which helps in heat dissipation as well as puncture resistance.
IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you are ordering the correct spare tire for your model trailer. Pre-2014 trailers were equipped with bias play tires. Never mix tire styles on your trailer. Always use only radial tires or bias ply tires on all wheels, including the spare, to ensure safe trailer operation. If you have ANY doubts, please Contact Us for assistance with the purchase.
