It would seem the hardest part right now is finding 2 matching 14-inch 5-stud rims for the trailer. Both mine are unmatching....

:lolpoint:

If you dont have matching stud pattern hubs which sounds highly unusual???

I'd just replace one of them and go to Arnos or another tyre shop to get brand newwies on rims and spend the coin to minimise future issues ..

Missing the tide on a prime set and ruining a trip and your chance at a million dollar baz isn't worth the potential savings IMO ( just my 2c worth matey ) BOAT stands for bring out another thousand (or more often these days sometimes a fair bit more) so just bite the bullet and cash up for good gear and be done with it for years of reliable performance.

Unless u plan on carrying 2 different size spares when u do a tyre ...which I'm sure will happen one day on old 2nd hand cr.p.:banghead: Even just on small trips to the spots mentioned around the city and for certain if you took it anywhere like 4 mile on the Wildman if you did eventually put a decent motor on it too.

But this is up to yourself to weigh up the potential risk vs rewards vs a few bucks out of pocket at the end of the day. :?

Writing your entire rig off with a good blowout at 100 plus on a sweeping bend isn't worth the couple hundred in savings .... but like I said thats up to you.

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

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..;)

A nice lady gave me this Furuno LS-6100 sounder the other day, for free. Missing cords, so I might take it into In n Out n see if they can plug n play test it.

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.
