Transeagle Tire Reviews

As one of the fastest growing companies in the industry, Transamerica Tire Co. Ltd manufactures a variety of tires, especially for heavy vehicles. 

Specifically, it has three brands – Freedom, Hauler and Transeagle – that are known across the US and foreign markets like Canada, Brazil, and Europe. 

All Transeagle tires are specially designed and manufactured to be used in high speed conditions such as highways and motorways. Tailored to support heavier vehicles such as trucks and trailers, these tires have immense road grip, responsive handling and many features that give you more control of your vehicle.

Why Buy Transeagle Tires?

Standard And Safety

Driving large vehicles in difficult weather conditions and terrain with substandard tires is extremely risky. 

To address this concern, Transeagle manufactures all weather tires that come with features like:

  • Wide center rib
  • Steel construction in both sidewalls
  • Wide grooves
  • Upgraded load durability, etc.

Combined, these ensure increased driver safety on highways and motorways along with a comfortable driving experience.

Design Features


Since Transeagle tires are specifically designed for heavier vehicles, they are extremely durable. 

Delivery trucks and trailers are usually loaded with heavy materials and have to cover hundreds of miles to make deliveries, resulting in wear and tear. The situation becomes worse if the tires are of low quality or are not sturdy enough to handle excessive or continuous use. 

This is why it’s important to opt for a trusted brand like Transeagle; these tires are high on durability and easy on the pocket. 

Transeagle tires also come with low rolling resistance that increases efficiency and decreases fuel expense. In the long term, these are also great for the economy as they reduce environmental damage. 

Long Tread Life

Tread wear is still one of the most important factors that you should consider when looking for new – or used – tires. 

Tires by this brand are specially designed with a symmetric ribbed pattern tread that keeps close contact with the road at all times, while decreasing wear and tear in the long run. 

Wide Centre Rib For Road Control

Simply put, wide center ribs make it easier for drivers to steer and drive in muddy or rough terrains.

This is also an essential feature for safety purposes as well; large vehicles can easily get stuck or even topple in muddy areas because of their weight. That’s why owners are advised to choose tires with wide center rib to ensure a smooth and hassle free journey.

Transeagle Best-Sellers

Transeagle ST Radial All Steel Premium Trailer Tire – ST235/85R16 132/127M G (14 Ply)

A favorite amongst owners of large vehicles, ST Radial All Steel Premium Trailer Tires have steel construction on both side of the walls. This provides immense support to vehicles carrying heavy loads such as machinery and other equipment, and prevents undue wear and tear.

The symmetric ribbed pattern and all-season tire compound combined with multi-sipes on these tires improve traction in wet and muddy terrains, and dispel heat properly to increase tread life. 

Wide grooves, on the other hand, decrease rolling resistance which in turn improves driving efficiency. This also stops the vehicle from slipping on wet highways and motorways; something known as hydroplaning.  

Here are some other features of this model:

  • Full nylon and ply construction
  • Symmetric tread design

Transeagle ST Radial All Steel Heavy Duty Premium Trailer Tire – ST225/75R15 121/117M F (12 Ply)

  1. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS TIRE. I had a set of TransEagles plus a spare put on at a Goodyear tire shop in the New Orleans area. Made it to my work location 70 miles away. On the return trip one tire split and started coming apart. I pull over and replace that new tire with the New spare tire. Half of the tire threads came off all the way down to the metal. on my return trip Six miles from my shop a second tire on the same side started to come apart sending tire chunks in the air and hitting cars behind me. I have been pulling trailers for over 12 years now and I have used over 10 or more different brands of tires. I have never saw 14 ply do this. these tires came apart like a used tire with a recap on it. This experience cost me dearly on the side of the road in the dark and out of spare tires because I had two tire failures. Do not purchased this tire.

  2. I’ve been looking at the Transeagle 14ply for 15 inch rims to go on my 5th wheel camper. Does anyone have any experience with the Transeagle 225x75x15 14 ply?

  3. I put 8 Transeagle ST235/85/R16 on my gooseneck trailer, less than 200 miles, one blowed out running 70lbs of air. The folks out of Charlotte, NC, wouldn’t make the tire good, claimed I hit something. The tire split from the bead to the edge of the tread. Tire exploded under a light load at 65 mph on the I77. I want be buying anymore for my use. I’ve always used Michelin tires, I’ve never had a blowout with them. Most of them were used ones from off of my dually.. BTS, tire & wheel distributor is where my tires come from. Becareful dealing with these folks. I’ll most likely be visiting them after the next tire blows. I hope I don’t have another blowout, BKLundy, York, SC

    1. That tire is a 110psi tire. Running less than the recommended air pressure can and will destroy tires. There is a recommended air pressure for a reason. In order to achieve the 3860 lbs. load capacity you must have the 110psi. Anything less and you do not get the load carrying capacity and overload the tires. You destroyed your tire by under inflating. It’s not the tire, it’s the uneducated people who cause the issues!

  4. Shane…you stated the only trailer tire made in US is Goodyear….
    I just read that Carlisle Tires have a plant in Tennessee….and mfg. there along with one in China….is this not true?

  5. I just read that the plant that makes them is in Tennessee, according to google.. Not sure if it may just be a warehousing type setup for the tires once they come in from being made elsewhere?

    1. The only trailer tires made in USA are Goodyear. Even the highly regarded Maxxis are China derived. It is the build quality and not the origin that should be the main concern.

      1. We own a 36 foot fifth wheel camper that weighs about 13,000 pounds. When we bought it, it had BCT 14 ply trailer tires that were about 1 1/2 years old. I had checked tire pressure shortly before starting on our camping trip. After driving about 25 minutes, I had a catastrophic tire failure that tore out wiring to taillights, broke the handle off that dumps the gray tank, and damaged the side panels on the side and slideout. I was running about 72 mph. Put spare on and went and had another tire put on…and put spare back under the camper. About 3 hours later and about 30 miles down the road, another BCT tire blew out. Fortunately this time I was only running about 50 mph so no damage done. Put spare on and went on to campground. When we got home, I researched different tires, and had a set of Sailun S637 14 ply tires put on. They have been on for 6 years now. Yes they are a China made tire but they have held up very well. We are looking at putting new tires on due to the age of the tires…not because of wear or damage (no dryrot visible either). It will be another set of 14 ply. I am researching the Transeagle 14 ply but will also check other brands. The Goodyear 14 ply are really expensive at about $300 each. The Sailun tires are about $160 each. We have pulled our camper a lot and on very hot (90° plus) days at 75+ mph without any problems. They have a max inflation of 120 psi but I always run them at 90 psi.

  6. I’ve recently read in the RV magazine I subscribe to that many RV owners are having problems with tire failures on the highways, such as blowouts, tread separation, etc. The one comment is the tires were made in China, (aka “China Bombs). I’m about to buy new tires for my 37′ fifth wheel weighing 13,500 lbs and want to make the right tire decision. Your thoughts please.

    1. Sitting on the side of I-95 with a blown trailer king tire! Inflated properly and less than a year old! Second blowout since June! Never buy these tires!But what else is there?

    1. This manufacturer uses plants in South America or one of several plants in Asian countries. There is no way to tell where these specific tires come from.

      It has proven difficult to get information on the TransEagle tires. However, Load Range F tires usually have a max inflation of 95 psi which is the inflation pressure needed to reach max load for a single axle configuration.
