Compatibility of AM22318HWTB Wheels with 4.80-12 Tires on Boat Trailer


Will this rim fit my boat trailer? The hole in center fits and my lugs will work but will the 4.80-12 tires be too wide?


Expert Reply:

If your boat trailer currently uses size 4.80-12 tires, the 12x4 inch # AM22318HWTB rims will work great, because 4.80-12 tires are only recommended for use with 4 inch wide wheels. In other words, the rims shouldn't be any wider than the rims you already have.

If the wheels you have now are less than 4 inches wide for some reason, and you're worried about wider tires because you fear that the tires might rub on the edge of the fender, you'll probably want to raise the fenders up if possible.
