    Triton trailer wheel upgrades

    Looking for ideas/pics of what tire and wheels you guys are using on your Triton single trailers. Mainly interested in a 13" aluminum wheel and a good tire for them. These look sort of odd with the 12" tires as it has so much room between the tire and fender. Looked through the previous threads, but still looking for suggestions.

    Here is a very good source:

    Galvanized, aluminum, lots of choices just depends on your budget.

    I just purchased a 2015 Triton WC2-2 with 13" galvanized wheels. I was going to replace with Aluminum but they look just fine as is.

    Just to give you ideas...

    I bought the alloy wheels as soon as I bought my Triton and with the salt usage, they hold up great. If you go alloy and ride salt, make sure you never chip the clear coat because it will get ugly quick.

    Nothing wrong with galvanized wheels, but they quickly turn dull gray when used in salt.

    Those are not original Triton wheels (but I did use same tires since it was all new). If you prefer original Triton wheels (I don't) you can find them on ebay...as with everything else.

    Also, it came with stainless steel center caps with openings on the ends for the grease fitting.

    I agree with Sanfish, the aluminum Triton wheels are real expensive and I don't like how they look either. The ones Sanfish has look real sharp and there are 2-3 real nice sets from etrailer.com.

    I think you are smart to get 13" wheels and tires and you will feel a big difference on the road.

    Make sure you get the wheels and spare balanced. I got all 5 done at NTB for $40.

    I paid $3,150 for my WC2-2, galvanized wheels, spare and spare tire carrier from the Regional Dealer in Houston TX.

    I got a 46.5"x19" rectangular box from Tractor Supply (DeeZee box) and put it on myself with square U-Bolts for $170. It is not flimsy and is mounted rock solid!

    I'll take a picture of the whole rig today.

    I upgraded the wheels on my single place Triton from the 12" to 13". I did have to reposition my fenders to make the bigger tire fit. I don't know if it did anything for the ride. I do know my trailer floats at the boat ramp without the ski on it which can be a pain in the butt.
    Below is a link to where I bought mine.
