Tire wrench?

I have a 2012 low profile trailer with 18" rims. Just wondering if they are supposed to come with a jack or wrenches to change a tire?

I never got one anything with mine, not even the Allen key required to get at my lug nuts.

Didn't get any accessories with any trailer that I have ever owned.

Floor jack and a 4-way lug wrench. Don't leave home without them...

Yep, you are going to have to source the jack and wrench. Most likely even a spare tire if you don't have one.

If you got a tandem then one of these may be handy http://www.rvpartsmarket.com/Camco-T...21_p_2601.html to change a tire. Still need a jack in case both tires get taken out by road debris.

Consider going to Harbor Freight and building an "oh crap" trailer toolbox. I bought a bottle jack, some inexpensive tools, gloves, ratchet tie downs, headlamp and anything else I could think of. Then I went and got a spare set of bearings, seals, oil/grease, some anti-seize, brake fluid and a few 4x4 blocks. This toolkit is about the only thing I never tow without. I've yet to use it, but I guarantee that the first time I leave it at home, I will need it. It's just science!

I have basically the same thing. When I winterize or do other work on the boat/trailer those tools come out of and go into the "basic" boat tool box. That box goes where the boat goes.

Another aspect of this is to actually go through the motions of changing a tire in your driveway to make sure everything works out. Any of the high end or aftermarket wheels won't accept a cross-type lug wrench and may only accept a thin wall socket. Also knowing proper jack placement ahead of time is well worth knowing.

My brother had a spare tire for a trailer for several years without needing it. One day I took a close look at it and the wheel turned out to be a Ford Expedition 6 lug wheel (6x135) which sure as heck isn't going to fit on his 6 lug trailer (6x5.5). Imagine the potential gasket-blowing fit I helped him avoid by catching this before he had a flat on the road.

thanks for the input. I do carry the tools to change it. Just wondering if anyone had tools come with the trailer. Again, thanks.
