I read it as tho the hubs are the same,but finding matching 5 stud wheels is the issue.
I’m sure someone has some sitting around somewhere. Or may have one to match yours,maybe post up a picture of them, never know

You have interpreted correctly Mickkk. :) the 2 rims I had on the trailer when purchased have matching stud patterns, its just they are different widths.

Wouldn't be too concerned about rim widths captain but definalty spending the coin on brand new rims and tyres would give you peace of mind, just check the tyre dates if you get 2nd hand anything over 5 years and you might get into trouble

goodluck the punts lookin close to ready
Everydays a good day when your fishing

Roget that B-Rad. Looking like new rims may be on the cards if the wreckers can't produce tomorrow or on the weekend. Cheers :)

Timbers level, new u-bolts in for side-timbers. Next is up on the ramps for a quick grind n paint at the back-end. Then time to sand and oil the timbers..;)

Keep going down to the ramp and hoy it of the pontoon. Keep it out of sun display fades altogether when it heats right up. Well priced at zero dollars.

And with sealed bearings, axles intact, should be easy to come up with a nice easy design for easy removal, and storage whilst on the fish.
