Steve,

Did you have to choose one of their "pre-paired" wheel/tire combos, or will tire rack allow you to choose the wheels and tires you'd like and then mount/balance that combo?

Thanks,

Ben

Actually I was in desperate need of tires when I bought my 5er last summer while I was up in Washington. I looked hi and low for wheels that I liked but couldn't come up with any. I bought my tires at Discount tire and had them mounted on the gross wheels that were on the trailer when I bought it. When I got home to vegas I looked again for wheels and found the ones I bought at e-trailer.com. I only bought wheels (delivered free) but Discount was nice enough to remount my tires on the new wheels for the cost of metal valve stems. While I was shopping for wheels I noticed that e-trailer had the wheels I liked with tires mounted, balanced, and shipped for cheaper than I could have bought them anywhere else. I wish I had went there first as it would have saved me a lot of money.

I like etrailer, I've had a few issues with parts (not their fault), and they were good to deal with on it.

Mine are ultra nomad wheels. Just by pure luck, while searching for trailer wheels, I found they made trailer wheels that matched the ones I put on my truck. I took it as a sign. There were only two left in the country at the time.

The 15x6 wheels fit perfectly.

Not sure if you could call them after market, since they are only available from the manufacture. The picture is from TrilliumRV.com, so I hope this is not a problem.

I think it's cool how the wheel matches the logo.

I can't find any whitewall trailer tires- any suggestions?

I am going to repaint (black or red) my old rusty '79 Scamp rims and add chrome baby moons. White walls would compliment them

So are you guys running regular car tires on your trailers? I have a 96 scamp 16' and was wondering if I could run car tires on it. Sorry I need to do an intro but at work and on my phone lol don't tell the boss!
