    Lower my trailer ?

    How could i get my trailer to be a few inches lower ?
    The only way for me to launch my new SHO is on the beach but the water is shallow and it would be a lot easier if my railer was lower in the water.
    New wheels maybe but what size ? i'll ry to post a pic of the trailer later.
    thanks

    if you have 12-13 inch wheels, swap them out to 8" wheels and tires, just remember to get a higher load rating as in "C"

    check the ratings on the tires you choose. look at your trailer weight rating and go from there...

    rim width. if the wheels are to wide they will be very close to the frame rails.
    and they possibly won`t fit under the fenders.

    if you have 12 or 13 inch tires, they are about 20-21 in diameter.
    5.70X8 are about 18-19inches, the smaller you go the more load rating you need... check that site i gave you for tire heights...

    post a picture of your trailer, you may be able to flip the axle if you have the clearance...B4 we can give you any other advice...

    Keep in mind,a smaller tire/wheel combo will spin faster on the HWY.

    NO highway where i live just a normal 5 mins drive to launch it on a flat beach so i need a trailer to handle the weight and not speed.
    I
    dont have a pic of the trailer but i looked at the tires on it , 4.80 by 12 for 745lbs.
    Now instead of 4.80's by 8' can i put 5.70's by 8' on it so i could get a better lbs rating ?
    Do 4.80 by 8 gonna look stupid on a regular trailer ?
