Tracker Trailer Wheel Question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I was hoping someone could help me out with some information regarding wheels and tires for a Tracker trailer.  I recently purchased a 2007 Pro Team 175TXW on the stock trailer and am looking to buy new wheels and tires.  I have not picked the boat up from the dealer yet, they are holding it until the weather finally breaks (if that ever happens!) so I can bring it home.  My question is does anyone know what the bolt pattern is for that trailer?  Everything I've found online points to 5 on 4.5" but nothing that specifically mentions this model of boat or trailer.  Also is there a particular place online that you would recommend for purchasing wheels and tires that is a decent price and good service?  A follow up question is there is no spare carrier currently on the trailer and I am looking to add one to it, do you have any particular models that you would recommend that are good quality and safe but still bolt on style?

We picked up our spare carrier at a tractor supply. it was meant for going on horse trailers I believe but it mounts safely right beside where the winch pole is on our boat trailer. I cant remember the name I can remember it was in a red and grey box though, sorry if not specific enough. it is a bolt on though I can attach pictures once I get home to show what it looks like.

No, that is helpful thank you.  We have a couple of tractor supply stores here in town as well as a Rural King.  I hadn't thought to check there yet but I can see what they have.  I would prefer to find something like that that I can see before I buy since you never know what you are getting when you look online.

It's odd that a dealer is selling a boat without putting new boots on the trailer.  That's the first thing every tire kicker looks at on a used rig.  Not sure why you're replacing the rims, but if you are, then there's your spare.  Just get a spare hanger that clamps on to the trailer.  For tires and rims, any decent, local tire shop will be your best bet.  Tractor Supply can be pretty pricey.

I saw the tire condition when I went down to check it out but I figured I could buy the wheels and tires cheaper than they would sell them to me for.  Plus I had them rebuild the carbs and put a new battery in so I figured anything else would end up jacking up the price more that I wanted to.  You are dead on though about the spare wheels, my intent is to install the new ones before I bring it home and mount two new tires on the old rims for spares.  My original question still stands though, does anyone know the bolt spacing?  I know it is 5 lug but am unsure if it's 4.5" spacing or different.

It's most likely a 5 on 4.5", but you might just want to measure yourself.  Here's how:

I don't know the spacing.

There are a number of places on line in addition to Walmart that sell tire/wheel combos with free shipping. I ordered 3 from etrailer and they were delivered in thick boxes to my garage door and were partially inflated. Okay, mostly inflated. I bought 12 x 5.30 on white wheels for about $55 each, but here's an example of 13" load range D.

 

"Loadstar ST185/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire with 13" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range D

Item # AM3S331"  -  $92.69 each.  Free shipping if you spend $99.
