Custom wheels size for new Boatmate TA trailer?


Recommended Posts

A tandem will run 14" stock. (205-75-14 typical) I believe the pattern is 5 on 4.5.

When we up the wheel size we jump to 16". They fit really nice, although we do typically go to a wider 10" fender for more of a CA look.

There are trailers out there with 18' and 20" wheels on them - I think there are some posted in this forum over the years of TA's and Triple Boatmates with dubs on them.

As a point of reference:

Tire size formula: "add 10, subtract 10, add 1" for sizing tires

to match the original rolling size when you add larger wheels.

For instance, (and maybe you know all this),

We use 205/75-14 tires.

If we go to a 16" wheel, then we need to run the formula twice, which gives

us a new tire size of 225/55-16.
