    My wesco trailer has 8" tires and I want to change to 12"

    So I bought a pair of used jet skis on a wesco double trailer. The trailer has 8" tires on it right now. They look absurdly small (plus the trailer rides low) and they're really really worn out, so I'm going to replace them. The hubs are 4 lug (4/4), and I want to put 12" wheels on instead, but is there anything I need to be concerned about, or as long as I get 12" wheels with a 4x4 pattern I'm fine? I've heard that maybe the center hole in the wheel has to be the same size as the hub and other things like that. There is *plenty* of clearance underneath the fender at this point so i don't think that will be an issue. Please advise, thanks!

    I'm in Greenville, SC, but these 8's are pretty rough. I mostly just want to know if any 12's with the same bolt pattern will work (assuming fender clearance and all that). Maybe I'll go to academy sports today and buy a set of 12's and if they don't fit I can take them back.

    i would rather have the 8's cause my truck is lowered and the trailer sit high in the ass, as for the wheel bolt patern, if its 5 lug, its the standard ford 5 on 4 1/2 and the 12's should bolt right on good luck, i'm going to be in greenville in a few weeks, but i'll be on the bike, no jet ski that weekend......

    It's 4 lug - is this a standard size also?
