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.

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
