I've got a question, and this seems like a good place to ask, since most everyone here has added aftermarket rims.
I thought I had read somewhere that trailer rims were different? Like they were hub centered and not lug centered, or something like that
How or what are you all looking for that tells you that these (or any) aftermarket rims will be suitable? I mean, beyond that they are the diameter you want and the number of lugs you want? What happens if one runs the "wrong" rims (even if they do physically fit)?
To answer a couple of your questions from both actual towing exprience and working in a shop
that specialized in aftermarket wheels.
Hub or stud mounted wheels,, only difference is weather they may move a slight amount
up and down and a radial tire will remove most of that when moving, no matter what wheel
you have no your trailer now jack it up and spin it , will probably run out somewhat.
Offset,, may work your bearings a little harder if they are negative offset bet on my Boler
won't fit with too much offset.
My wheel,tire combo is featured in this post and we just got back from 39 days and 19,000
km's with 0 problems.
