Wheels / Tires for 1986 Scamp 16'

Hi all,

I just bought a 1986 Scamp 16' trailer that is 700 miles away from me. I plan to make a two day trip to go and get it, but would feel much better if I left home with two good tires mounted on wheels to replace the ones that are currently on it. The only trouble is, I don't know what size of tire to get, and what the lug pattern of the wheels are. Does anybody know what size and lug pattern these are? Any suggestions on a good place to get them?

Thanks,
Doug

Doug - I had a simular situation. I bought the trailer and pulled it directly to tire store and had new tires installed along with valve stems and had the tires balanced.The man I bought it from had the wheel bearings repacked. Just my 2 cents.

I just put new ST175/80-13 tires on my '86 16 ft Scamp. Trailer came with 4 lug rims.

If you are buying new rims it would be prudent to confirm lug pattern with seller. If possible get a picture from him. Assume nothing.

I would've thought the 16' had larger tires/wheels but perhaps not. My '84 Scamp 13 had on it when I bought it last year, 175/30D-13 tires with 4 lug on 4" bolt pattern. It was the original axle which I've since replaced with 5 on 4.5" hubs, same size tires.

Would depend on the year of trailer and whether the axle has been replaced. I run ST205/75 R15 tires that are five on 4.5 lugs.
