Trailer Tires and Wheels?

Postby BlewbayouLA » Sun Sep 10, 2017 7:19 pm

I need new tires and I'm moving to a new house that the airboat is a few inches too tall to clear the carport. So I was wondering has anyone used Pontoon Boat Trailer tires on their Air Boat Trailers? I know they are low profile and wider so they may work. My current tires are 24" ImageImageImage

I used them on my last trailer and I use them on a 20 foot seacraft. I like how low they sit and only have trouble with them when they get low on air.

They were often used on airboat trailers back in the 70's-80's.
