View Full Version : Spare tire for SBT trailer

07-09-2009, 02:41 AM
I need a 14" rim for spare with the same size tires that I have on the trailer now (225/75/r14). I was thinking about going to the junk yard and trying to find a 14" rim and just throwing a trailer rated tire on that rim. Since it's going to sit under the trailer (trailer mount bar for spare under starboard side), I didn't realy care what the rim looked like, but have concerns.

I'm not sure how to match lug pattern or if there is anything that I should be aware of when just picking up a spare tire and slapping a new tire on it that is trailer rated. Does the rim need to be special in some way??

I looked around online but didn't see a website for SportBoatTrailers (SBT). They go out of business or just no e-commerce action?

This is basically what my spare is...
