I just ordered a set a couple days ago, I will upload some pics when I get them mounted next week. They are going under a Supra, Black, Tan and Fossil color. Replacing the stock chrome modular steel wheels.

Nice color BTW

Newty,

Those wheels look great, what a perfect match for your boat. I just ordered my wheels, should be in by end of week. Hopefully next week I can get them mounted. I will send some pics, here is a before shot. Currently I have the chrome modular 14" wheels.

I chose to go the custom wheel route. I order polished aluminum wheels from Centerline. I replaced the 15" with 18" wheels and tires. I also change the fenders from the narrow stainless fenders to the 10" wide stainless fenders.

As you can see it made a big difference in the way the trailer looked.

Hangar,
I take you old fenders. My boatmates are just painted and the stainless fenders look nice.

Bryan,

Nice wheels, they look great....18's are real nice, unfortunately I would not be able to fit my boat in my side garage if I went any higher, I only have about 1/4" clearance when putting her away.

Travis you can get bigger wheels and smaller tires! Overall height can go down or stay the same! The only disadvantage is you lose some of the shock absorbion of the tires,if these trailer had any real weight on them the Lo-Profile setups would be very detrimental too ride quality and total load capacity. IMO Todd

I am so close to hitting I did not want to take any chances, although I do like the 16-17" wheels, for now the 14's are gonna have to do. With my luck I would be notching out my garage.

The prob with bigger wheels is you are limited in selection because most wheels aren't narrow enough to fit in these applications.
Trust me I spent hours researching this before I settled on the ones I have. And I was not willing to modify the fenders or the trailer to make them fit. I am really happy with my wheels and I dont have to worry too much about curbing them in tight areas.
Plus I didn't have to spend extra cheese on new tires!!!
