Better Looking Wheels for Harbor Freight Trailer with 12 inch White Wheels


So I purchased a Harbor Freight Trailer and I cannot stand the white wheels. Current wheel/tire on my trailer are the 12x4... its a 4 lug. Can I just buy these black/chrome wheels and just have the tires I currently have mounted on these wheels? Will these wheels fit on the original harbor freight hubs? Not concerned about weight that much as Im only pulling 3 kayaks and some gear. Probably around 350lbs plus the trailer weight 250lbs. I believe trailer weight max 1195 lbs per manual. Also any suggestions on a wider wheel / tire that would fit and maybe provide more stability on the roadway if needed that would be chromed or shiney besides the the normal white wheels you see everywhere?


Expert Reply:

The 12 inch trailer wheel part # AM22318HWTB will fit your trailer and current tires as all 12 inch trailer tire sizes are designed for a 4 inch wide rim like this one. It will attach directly to the hubs you have and easily allow your tires to be installed on them as well.

The next size up in rim/tire size is going to be a pretty big jump in width and diameter which I believe would cause clearance issues so your best option is the part # AM22318HWTB. The widest tire size that fits this wheel would be the ST145R12 like the part # AM10140 which is 5.7 inches wide. If you have a different size going to this would give you more width and stability.
