And not sure what size tire to go with.i will run them on my 18 foot boat trailer but will keep them and switch  them to the 21 foot boat when i buy one. For now this is the  look i want.

Oh no!  You're doing it all wrong.  V-drive rims won't work on a jet boat, the engine is backwards.

Sorry, bad joke.

I dig that slammed look.  Are the (will your) fenders (be) attached to the axles to prevent the tires from rubbing?

Be aware of the back spacing on these rims.  I bought similar wheels for my 26 foot nordic trailer & found out the wheels rub on the trailer frame.  Wasted time & money on my part.....

Easy fix...  I bought a set of 18" Momo's for my 1st boat trailer...  Had to special order hubs in the correct bolt pattern and then had to use 2" wheel spacers so they wouldn't rub the frame rails...  Ride like shit because of the low profile tire but damn did it look bitchin!!
