Trailer Rims, Where to buy?
I have the bargin trailer that "came" with my ski rolling on some massive 12" steelies. Just for cosmetic reasons, I need help finding some rather inexpensive decent looking wheels.
Anyone selling any?

Are you looking for wheels plus tires?
Most Marine supply places sell them already mounted.
Buy radial ST trailer tires, and be sure to get a tire with a load rating high enough to handle your trailer at maximum trailer gross weight (per the trailer's weight ratings plate).
For easy towing and a smoother ride, many PWC owners have upgraded to 12 or 13 inch tires. I use 13 inch Goodyear Marathon tires (Bias ply, not radial) on my Triton Elite WC-2.
Be sure to check that your trailer frame is level when all hooked and ready to go. If it is not level, you will need to change your drawbar to change the ball height to match your trailer height.
My personal bias, I don't like Carlisle brand tires.

I would suggest getting bigger then what it prob came with. These are what we have and they are much wider then most of the trailers around here. If you are going to be on the highway then go big.

Menards had the trailer tire/wheel mounted together for about 50% of what Boater's World was charging.... for both of my 12" wheels/tires I believe I paid under $80 (it was last year so I dont remember for sure)
