I am looking at upgrading my trailer rims as I am going to get new tires anyhow before the start of the season.

I have the standard chrome 14" rims on my single axle trailer.

These look pretty sporty and I think should fit, plus free shipping.

Any opinions?

My logic is spend $200 on new tires locally or about $300 for wheels and tires online.

I like 'em.
FYI - The MC wheels in the ebay link are 15" and 6 lug=won't fit.

A member on here is in the wheel/tire business. He has the above 2 styles of wheels in 14" to fit your trailer. Send him a PM with your needs.

I bought some 14" tires and rims from this store that also has the online store. They are really knowledgeable and good to deal with www.trailerandtruckparts.com
Good Luck!

I had these rims on my last trailer as I bought them to replace the chrome pair that pitted really bad that came with the trailer. If you live near brackish water then stay away from them. We boat on a river that leads to the gulf and it is pretty much fresh water at my house and after using the trailer a couple of time i noticed that the clear coat on the rims started peeling. My boat stays on the lift the entire summer so I never use the trailer except for the winter and even then I barely use it. Other than that it trailer stays in a garage. I think I paid about 150 for the rims but still they didnt last that long. Just thought I would make you aware of this.

Even brackish is hard on wheels. The best, and the least attractive, are the galvanized. Painted wheels don't hold up to the salt either.

As with all wheels, just going to the car wash or hosing them off in the driveway isn't enough to clean a wheel thoroughly enough to keep them from oxidizing in one form or another. This isn't enough to allow a warranty claim to be satisfied either. In order to keep your wheels from oxidizing, you need to use a soft brush or sponge to remove the film from the entire wheel (back too if you are serious about no oxidation). Without removing the film, the brake dust and road grime will be able to do it's destructive work.

You need to check out Shadow Trailers... they have just about any kind of wheel you could want. They have great customer service too.

So I am looking for some new wheels for a 96' 205 on a single axle trailer.

How do you know what offset will work with these trailers?

One set I was looking at said not for use with 14mm studs... any ideas there?

$89 with free shipping is a great deal. I'm doing the same thing on my 95 and the local trailer dealer has a nice 5 spoke (15 inch) wheel that I like but they are $115 each plus mounting.
