Trailer Wheel Replacement
« on: June 20, 2007, 10:37:48 am »
We are looking to buy a new set of wheels for the Wriedt and I have no idea what lug pattern my trailer is.....

Every time I have ever purchased wheels, I used that websites sizing chart based on year/make/model of the vehicle I am buying the wheels for....

what about offset?

5 on 4 1/2 Ford pattern, I've seen stock Ford wheels with stock offsets and stock "reversed" wheels on trailers, your Rogers trailer has "reversed" wheels. Hope this helped.

I thot it was 5 on 5, but i dunno. "reversed" means just that.....back in the olden days it was really racey to cut the center out of your wheel and flip the hoop over so they hung out ferther...or looked more "deep dish". I had reversed wheels on my Whitchcraft trailer and they hung out to far, the lip of the fender would contact the tread on the tire.

I have 6 boat trailers in my backyard, they all use the same bolt pattern wheels. I also have a spare for my trailers, which is a factory Ford Mustang wheel complete with the Mustang logo center cap. I did a google search (Oh NO, am I wrong AGAIN????), no I am not. 5 on 4 1/2".   ;D

... "reversed" means just that.....back in the olden days it was really racey to cut the center out of your wheel and flip the hoop over so they hung out ferther...or looked more "deep dish". I had reversed wheels on my Whitchcraft trailer and they hung out to far, the lip of the fender would contact the tread on the tire.

So I was curious and just took a good look at my 6 boat trailers and 3 of them had reversed rims and 3 did not have reversed rims. The stock wheel size for a older boat trailer is 14" X 6". The stock offset has about 2 1/2" backspacing and the reversed wheels have about 3 1/2" backspacing. 3 1/2" + 2 1/2" = 6". Back spacing is measured from part of the wheel where it butts up against the brake drum or spindle (depending on whether or not the trailer has brakes) when it is mounted to the inside side of the wheel when the wheel is mounted on the trailer. Reversed rims make each tire stick out about an inch more than the stock back-spaced or non-reversed wheel. With these measurements you can determine which type of backspacing you want on your trailer by measuring your trailers spindles/brakes compared to the center of the fenders of the trailer.   ;)

Waiting for the replies...   :D

Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."
