The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 - Off-Road Tires part # A12WS545 can be fully submerged in fresh water to launch your boat. They are designed with a corrosion resistant black powder coat and a lot of our customers use them on their boat trailers. I have attached a video for your reference and the dimensions of the system.

I recommend Loadstar Kenda ST175/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire with 13" Aluminum Wheel part # AM31245 with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. These wheels fit the Timbren Axle-less suspension. The Aluminum construction stands up a little bit longer to corrosion than a galvanized wheel does. Since you like to take the trailer off-road The Loadstar tire on the Aluminum wheel is a bias ply tire. Bias ply tires have a stiffer sidewall so they are better on rough terrain compared to a radial tire that is designed to flex for less heat build up for highway use.
