    Well this trailer project is put on hold due to not being able to find axles.

    So I bought another trailer and just need to replace tires on it. Trying to decide between 10” wide tires or the standard skinny 12”s I prefer the wide tires.

    If you are thinking of going with the wider tires, you would need to replace the wheels and fenders, too. At that point, I would consider just getting 13 inch diameter wheels and ST175/80R13 tires, provided there is enough clearance between the tire and fender.

    I have to replace fenders anyway since the one left is broken.

    If I have the width clearance I want to get this wheel/tire

    i like the width and it will lower trailer a little.

    The new used Triton needs a little refurbishing so we started removing some crusty hardware

    Get new bearings and got some of the crusty washers replaced.



    found out the fender skirt rubs my 8” tires. So now I’m trying to find wide fenders so I can run the 10” tires.

    I am going to check with a family friend that works at a metal shop to see if he can make me something. If not I will try to find a set of wide enough and just fab some brackets to get them to bolt to what I have. I really want to run the wider tire.

    also I plan to document the bearings and races I used because it took me 2 days and 6 stops to try and find what I needed. The old bearings did not have part numbers on them and my bearings were 1 1/16” on the out side and inner one was 1 3/8” and of course the first set I got the race was to small so after searching for another 30 mins found what I needed. Finally got it all together and greased up and the bunk bolted back on. Planning to go riding tomorrow so I’ll report back how that goes.

    anyone know of a wide fender to use?

    I found these that list as 9” wide. I will measure my support bars to see if it will rest on them and then I can use brackets to attach to fender then attach to my trailer. If it will go deep enough to not rub tire on the fender skirt.
