Trailer Tires from Fleet Farm???

7 posts in this topic

Have any of you guys ever bought the off the shelf trailer tires from Fleet Farm? I was wondering if anyone has a personal opinion or an experience since they seem to be much cheaper than buying from a boat dealer. I suppose its a case of "you get what you pay for."

No problems here! Just make sure you get the right size! And bearing buddies help as does a properly inflated tire. Have fun and drive safe!~ grin.gif oh I forgot to mention this is for 14 footers I have owned Im not sure how theyd be on bigger rigs confused.gif

On my large rig I went with Goodyear Marathons. On my smaller boat I buy the hub and wheel assembly from Northern. On the bias ply tires the right inflation is critical for good treadwear and is dependent on the load in the boat. Use the chalk method to make sure the whole tread and not just the center (too much air) or just the sides (too little air) are touching.

The tires are name brand (Carlile) and are just fine. I have two on my 4 wheeler trailer.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
