I am going to re-build the trailer for my 91 Pro Star over the next few weeks.

My father in law has a body shop and will be sand-blasting the trailer and then throwing new paint on it.

I am going to use 3m compound to rub out the fenders. It will receive new carpeted bunks and a new EZ load system.

I would like to put new wheels and tires on it. Can you tell me what size the stock wheels are on a 1991 PS190 trailer? What is the luc pattern? I saw some cool aluminum wheels that Shep put on his 1990 rebuild - this is the style that I am looking for.

Any help is appreciated - I'll keep you posted with photos of before / in process and after.

thanks!

Please do post pics of the restore---I know there are some others on here as well, but I'm about to do the same thing on an 87 trailer after I move the boat to it's new lift, and I enjoy watching how others tackle this project.

For the wheels, I'd do a quick search for "trailer wheel" or something similar---I don't know the answer off the top of my head, but I know Harold has posted the info a few times.

I'm going back and forth between restoring mine, or just getting a new one. I'll see how bad the rust is and go from there. I hope to just restore it though. Post pics for sure.

Should be 14" X 6", 5 lugs on 4.5" bolt pattern. You can go to a 15" wheel, but keep the overall tire diameter near stock, somewhere around 26 1/4" IIRC

How about on a real oldy - I want to go with something that looks retro but runs like newer/better tires.

I don't know where the PO got these, but they have to go.

IIRC, those wheels at one time were more or less std. on the older MC and aftermarket trailers and had a baby moon hubcap in the middle with a hole in it to service the bearing buddy w/o removing the hubcap. It was a sweet setup on the older boats with the whitewall trailer tire that was used back then.

Slinkeyredfoot, Ski King or somebody on here, has them on a early S/S trailer! They looks nice!

I don't know if anyone needs this but I plan on using it just to make sure on my wheels. It's a bolt pattern in pdf format. Print it out and put it over your bolts to see which pattern you have.

Chris, when you find some tires, post it up with a link... I need some too my new old boat came with some cracked tires and if I stand a chance of getting it home from grandmas I am going to need some new tread.
