Trailer tires, skinny vs fat.

Recommended Posts

I have a small utilty trailer that I use around the yard. It currently has the skinny 4.8x8 tires on it but I would like to get something wider like 16x6.50x8. Will I be able to mount the larger tires on the original rims?

Going a 3" wider tread is a big difference than a 1½" wider I would say you would need a wider rim. pulling a side wall in ¾' is not as bad as pulling it in 1½" especialy on a small tire.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
