Trailer Tires from Fleet Farm???

Question

MntkaFishin

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."

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.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
