I am in the city of Calgary. Most of my trailers are in the back yard. No one can see them. Humpty Dumpty, (collapsed roof) did not make it in. It sits on the street in front of my house. It doesn't look so bad with the roof propped up and a tarp over it. The trailer I actually use is stuck in Ontario, with my van.
Worst Vacation Ever

I do get the occasional looky loo. Even though Humpty Dumpty is a wreck, people are curious. Once when I was working in the trailer, some one peeked in. Boy did they look shocked to see me looking back at them.

Check my photos. My rims came from Specialty Tire in Winnipeg

I put some Ford 14" rims and 195/75R14 BFG All Terrain T/A tires available. (ya, sure they're not 'trailer' tires but the load rating is 1710 lbs per tire and 65psi max) I guess I'll get some heat for that but they look pretty bada$$ and work well. I have put quite a few miles on through the Alberta and BC Rockies without a worry.

That looks great. You are probably fine with this tire and wheel combination but wheels also have a maximum pressure allowed. If the wheel Maximum pressure is less than 65 psi you have to use that pressure.

I recently bought a 1994 Ranger, so now my truck and trailer use the same wheels.
