by looking at the sidewall, what does the tire industry use to tell between a radial, and bias tire???? the answer im looking for isnt the word radial or bias molded on the sidewall, as some tires do not have that.

yes 79, the bias tires do form flat spots..... it doesnt take a day if you have enough weight on them..... and just on a unloaded vehicle they flat spot...... i havent had any come off the bead on me, but then, i havent run bias tires on any light trucks....

The sidewall tread... Bias plys have side tread that can go as low as the bead. Radials because of the tread cap and the carcass difference the side tread can only go as low as the tread cap.

Yeah that's because the outside beadseat is so crappy they'll roll out.

uh, the tread can give it away, but im looking for a little different answer, due to the fact that some radials and bias tires share tread design.

Yeah some radials share tread design but they don't share sidewall patterns the TSL bp and the TSL radial and the TSL sx and TSL SSR all share tread design but sidewall patterns are all different.

However I guess I don't know what exactly your looking for. I'm interested to learn now...

the answer im hunting for, is actually contained in the size...... for instance..... if a tire say 235/85-16 or 12-15 it is a bias tire..... radial have the 33/12.50R15.... or at least goodyear, michelin, anc bridgestone uses this method.... im not sure about the activity specific tire companies, such as interco...... I always thought the r stood for rim.... but all three companies told me in training, that the R is in fact radial......

Bais ply tires with good side tread and beadlocks because if your side hilling as you call it you weight will shift to the lowest point and the beads and sidewalls will be your standing legs.
