One of my wheels was damaged this year and the dealer says they are not made anymore. So, I thought I would come here and see if anyone has one of these for sale. It's from a 2008 trailer with the low profile set-up.

Let me know...thanks!

I believe those wheels are made by KMC.

I'd search other means rather than just relying on getting it through your dealer.

Since your location is "at the end of the line", I don't know where you are, but:

If it's just curb rash or the wheel is bent you could have it repaired by a wheel shop, otherwise these wheels on cragslist are local to me I could prolly help you get them, just let me know...

THis is all great info! It is the dealer who is needing to replace the wheel but they are dragging their heels so I thought I would reach out and see how difficult it would be to source on eof these....apparently not too terribly hard!

Thanks for the help and I'll look into both the new and used ones listed here.

The one wheel of mine came off after they did not tighten the bolts...basically elongated all of the mounting holes. :mad:

If they say the wheels are unavailable then I would push the issue that they need to replace all 5 so they match, that should get them motivated to fix your trailer.:D

I'm not sure what size or bolt pattern you need, but the Craigslist wheels are supposed to be a 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern and the eBay wheel is 5 on 5.5 inches. Make sure you know what size you need.

Here is a new 5 on 4.5 -

I think I remember reading that the center opening was larger on the trailer wheels to accommodate the oil bath hubs. I think people were looking into retro fitting these wheels on their trailers to by pass the dealer and this was what they ran into. The center opening would need to be enlarged which would ruin the chrome plating.

What spec wheels actually work on the 08 model year trailer? I was thinking of changing my rims I see you say they are a 5 on 4.5 lug pattern what backspace and offset?

18" x 9" 5 lug on 4.5" center with a +18 mm offset.

Those other sources that where listed in the beginning are probably best

As a dealer I would not ORDER a spare rim just to have hanging around. All tires and rims along with a spare tire would have gone out on a trailer. That is just money sitting on a shelf these days
