Tires for my Boler

Help !!! I need to replace the tires on my Boler 1300. The numbers on the side say 145 R13 74s, I think. The dry rot is pretty bad, so it might be 748. Anyway, Does anyone know what sizes will fit on my rims? Hopefully I won't have to replace the rims too. I will be in northern VT so I could go to Canada to get tires if someone knows where they are stocked. Otherwise I will order them. Thanks.

145- R-413 is no longer available. Looks like the smallest 13 inch tire available today is a 155-80-13. it would be a little wider and taller. Do you have room for a larger tire. The 155 tire is 10MM wider and 14MM larger in diameter. 1" = 25.4MM . The 155 may only be available in Bias ply. If you have enough room in the wheel wells a 175-80-13 would be best. It's readily available.

Your rims should work with the 155 or 175 tire.

I have to take the rims off the trailer to get the new tires mounted. How will I know if the tires will fit in the wheel well?

There are quite a few Boler owners on the forum. Hopefully one or more will come along and tell you what they are running. Other than that, can look at the tire when it's on the trailer and measure the clearance ?

I got Ironman 6ply ST185-80 R13 on my 80 13 ft Boler. I have done two trips for a total of about 800 miles and they ride very well and fit very well Just my opinion.

Since 185-80-13 will fit, then the smaller175-80-13 would also work. I would go with the size that is more readily available in your area.

Any tire dealer, worth their 'salt', should be able to replace your tires with a suitable 'trailer' type tire. I just had mine replaced on our 1973 Boler at the local CTC shop.

You could measure your tires and compare them to this table:

Hi Roger, Lisa, and Jack;
The NEW tires I had installed by CTC (Canadian Tire Corp.) on my 13 ft. 1973 Boler, are 'Carlisle Sport Trail' trailer tires. They are ST175/80D13-SCTSF. I paid $80 CDN., plus taxes and installation for each of 2 tires.
It is my understanding, these are warranted, and are specifically 'RV Trailer' tires.
Hope this helps.

Hi all, I ended up with 175 80 R13 at Tire Warehouse. They fit in the wheel well nicely and have a good load ability.
