15 inch aluminum rim and ST225/75R15 tire conversion. Easy bolt on mod. Looks good and rides great! Before and after pictures. I will post a picture of all the tires changed out when I remember to take a picture of everything completed. lol IMG_1239.jpg IMG_1241.jpg

Can you give me some details on where you purchased those rims? I have a 212X so I assume we have the same trailer and those rims should fit mine. Thanks.

Got around to a completed shot of the rims and tires. Stolz roller installed. Winch post moved aft a bit. Fulton XLT Sharkskin trailer jack on the way. Keelguard and seadek to go. Then we are ready for the season. IMG_1270.jpg

Looks Great!

I swapped out the stock wheels on my trailer last year but stayed with the stock 14" size. I also installed Goodyear Endurance Radials on the new rims. I liked these tires as they are load range D over the stock C. I also ordered my wheels online and they were about $75 each. I then sold all 5 of the stock wheels and tires locally on CraigsList for $300. Since I was upgrading to radial tires regardless, by the time I was done with the wheel upgrade and selling the originals, it only cost me the price of one wheel to upgrade all.

My recommendation is upgrade those wheels...you will only like the overall look. Here's a picture of my rig on the day I picked her up last summer: IMG_4182.jpg

Agreed...those stock rims are **yawn**.

Funny thing is I took my stock rims off with less than 10 miles on the trailer. There were NO weights on them and there was already rust on those stock wheels.

Same thing here. Took off within first week to upgrade, and the chrome plastic coating was chipping off and there were rust spots everywhere.
