I searched but couldn't find any relevant threads - aside from the recent Trillium
13-14 conversion thread.
My issue is with my '80 Boler
I need to replace the tires
....and at least one rim as the spare wheel is rusted badly at the bead from sitting deflated and wet. All I can find are the white spoke rims. I'd like to avoid that look.
Now would be a good time to shop for nicer rims - styled wheels etc - but I'm concerned about the size as I seem to have clearance issues. On there now are 165 80 13's. I have about an inch or inch and a half of clearance to the front lip of the wheel well.
165's do not seem to be available any longer. 175's are. They stand about 1/2" taller than the 165 - should work but will be tight. The only commonly available 14" trailer tire is the 205 which stands 26" tall...a non starter.
All this is theory and specification. Has anybody in the real world been down this road?
Any advice appreciated!
