Re: Need a spare Trailer Tire

Rudi wrote:So my suggestion would be to buy the spare that will be the same as what you have now, but will also match the tires you will get when you replace the other 4. That way no questions, you will know what you have and what the ratings are. Safety first.

OK, I think I have a consenus, and will track down a rim over the next few days, then check out whether I will stick with the same type I have now for a (near-) future purchase, or go with something else. Thanks for the input.

The good news is that I don't have a long distance trip planned till DSCF (assuming I take a tractor), and there is always Christmas and I have 3 sisters!!!!! :D

Dale, bolt pattern and offset of the rim is important, this link should help you narrow things down:

(it also has a link to common applications for reference)

Good luck,

The subject title is a bit confusing. Do you need a spare tire for your trailer or a tire for your spare trailer? :mrgreen:

You know, Barnyard, everytime I clicked on this post, the title tweaked me! Now I know why!!! My mother, who was an English major and constantly corrected my English, would have cringed!

Of course, either way you read it, I still need a tire! :D

You can buy a new wheel and tire from most any trailer dealer, Look to pay in the $150 and up range.
Or I will sell you a used one for $75 , I would buy a new one
