Tire Rim Replacement
 
I have to replace a tire rim on my Parkliner. How are rims sized? In other words, how do I figure out what to order? The tire is 14".

Huck,

Most trailers have an axle and hubs which use what is called a zero-offset rim which centers the wheel over the face of the hub.

Additional to the rim diameter, you will need a width.

Finally, you will also need the correct lug pattern so that the new wheel has the right number of holes at the correct spacing.

It will be something like this: Hub and Bolt Pattern - 5 on 4-1/2" for 1/2" studs.

You could check with Parkliner, wait for answers from other owners here and hope that theirs match yours, look for your (Dexter?) manual for the axle, check on the axle "beam" between the wheels for a label, or take the wheel to a tire shop.

I hope this is helpful.

I have the Parkliner in the shop right now, so I will ask the mechanic for description or part #. I was hoping the answer was they're standard 14" rims!

On white steel wheels, I think the size is stamped on there. Sorry, I don't have a trailer in the driveway to check. :confused:

When I was researching Parkliner for a 2015 model I was told 0 offset but negative .5 offset would fit as well giving a bit more fender well clearance. I wanted to get basic steel wheels that would take baby moons and trim rings... That would look cool. Make sure you get trailer rims that are rated for higher pressure and higher weights than a car rim and high pressure valve stems (all metal) that can handle higher pressure. I found them on Etrailer

5 on 4 1/2 is the hub with 0 offset and 1/2 studs was factory back in late 2014 when I was researching. --- Huck - were you at OBX rally last week? I saw a couple Parkliners there but one I did not get to see out in the nosebleed section...

No, but hopefully I will be in Hatteras (Buxton) by tonight.

I bought my Parkliner in early 2014, so that's likely what is on mine.

Don't forget to check that you still have the right lugs nuts that will seat properly. I went to a mag wheel and the lug nuts didn't stay seated and came off. Tire went into the body and did a LOT of damage. I would think if you are sticking with steel rims they may still work. Sadly (and obviously) I am no expert.

I used my spare tire rim to replace damaged rim and bought a used rim for spare tire. I am on the road and this worked out to be best solution.
