Re: trailor wheels?

If I could make a suggestion why don't you get a new set of rims and tires that are a larger size. Had them 8 inchers on my trailer and couldn't keep them on they wore out to quick. Went to a larger size and ran all of last year with the larger tires without a problem. The smaller tires I was replacing them every 2 or 3 months. The treads are not good and with presures running in the 60 psi range the smaller tires wear out fast. I think wally world is selling the 8 inch tires for around 45+/- dollars. The 12 in. ones are like $10 or $12 more.

The best bet would probably be Tractor Supply. I find it wasier to just buy tires that are already mounted on the wheel.

I got mine at Robbins Marine a few years back when they had them on sale for 20 bucks. I got 3 so I had a good spare too.

I agree, bigger wheels do make a difference, they will run cooler and last longer because they are not making as many rotations. I put bigger wheels on every trailer I owned.

Re: trailor wheels?

You can't always put on bigger wheels. My trailer wouldn't alow it because the fenders would rub. I wish I could have put on bigger wheels.

Re: trailor wheels?

thanks for the suggestions i was just looking at what wheels were on it. im pulling a small 16 foot fishing nymph with a 20hp motor. not a huge load at all. i dont typically travel very far, slippery rock to moraine is my main trip but still i guess better tires once is better than many tires later. as long as they wont rub the fender will they still mount on the hub?

Re: trailor wheels?

Just measure the distance between the wheel studs. Most are the same, but it pays to check.

Pull the fenders off and make new brackets or drill new holes. This is a case of the bigger the better.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
