trailer tires and fenders
« on: April 11, 2017, 11:33:10 AM »
Looking to replace tires and fenders for a Performance brand trailer for our Sun Cat    Tires are 2.0x8.00-10 low profile and can be found  Fenders (wide) are another matter.  Any help would be appreciated.

I have a place near me in Delaware called "Eastern Marine" that has lots of tires and trailer parts.  Been going there for years.  They do a lot of web based business too.  They call themselves the "Trailer Parts Superstore".  Walking through the place, it seems very true.

I also used eastern marine for replacement tires. I bought the tires mounted on galv. rims. In addition I used Load range "E". The factory tires were right on the edge for the weight of the boat and trailer. Load range "E" gives some added safety factor.

If you order tires only make sure you have a local shop that can handle the really small wheel.
