What’s the difference between steer, drive, trailer, biased, and radial tires?

I think you are confusing some on the trailer of a semi. The biggest difference between the three tires are the tread design. Often, the same tread design is used for the drive tires and trailer tire. In fact, often times in the industry, partially worn drive tires are replaced and the old drive tires are mounted on a trailer.Biased tires are a softer tire designed more for off road. These tires offer low impact, low signature, low dust signature, quiet and with low surface distortion. Hopefully, people that do off road will catch on to these tires and protect their off roading area so they can continue to use themRadial tires are designed for over the road and highway use. These tires are much harder and designed for longer lasting, and more highway miles for the $. Radial Steer, Drives and Trailer tires can terms here.Steer tires are the front two ‘steer’ the truck.Drive tires (another semi term) are the eight (or four in the case of rear of the truck. These tires are attached to tires on a semi and a single axle truck) tires that are in the the motor/tranny and ‘drive’ the truck.Trailer tires are obviously the tires be, and are purchased.

I find that backing straight back, it is easy to keep the unit in line by watching in the mirror on one side with just a glance to the other every once in a while(the perspective changes between the mirrors time in the unit, try to get some practice up. put your hand on the. then move your hand in in the yard backing it bottom of the steering wheel the direction that you want) Reference: driving big rigs for 25 years
