|Getting ready to upgrade to an aluminum wheel on my trailer, if anyone has these style wheels on there trailer please send a pic. These are 14" wheels. |
Thanks... would like to see what they look like mounted on a trailer.
|No, but I would like to see that second set on a trailer also.|
|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.|
|I bought a set of the transformers for my trailer. I love them. they seem like a quality rim and the customer service was awesome. |
Nice color BTW

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.
I take you old fenders. My boatmates are just painted and the stainless fenders look nice.
I'm sorry but they are already gone. But you can order them from Boatmate. 865-273-1100 www.boatmatetrailers.com
|Got my wheels mounted..... |
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.
|Looks great fman!|
|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!!!
