NA! you have to get the right wheel, the wheel stud sizes all differ,
Measure the wheel studs from the centers of each stud. then go looking!!

and don't forget to check the layout of the centre of the rim - if you have a greasy nipple you need a wheel with a cutout for it!

Yep! too true he's right.
Do you know what trailer it is? perhaps some one on here will have a spare, if we can have more info, perhaps we can help you.

had the same problem before I picked up my searider Sunday.
Asked the guy at the trailer shop if he had a suitable wheel, but the Indespension Roller Coaster 1 could have 10", 12" or 13" wheels apparently. The RC 4 could be the same.

In the end, I trusted the seller in telling me the bearings etc were good and knew the tyres were, so went with the if anything happens I'll call the recovery guys approach. Will be getting new spare and spare hubs now I have her down here. I only had a 2 hr drive though, not sure I'd be so happy coming much further than that withoug a spare.

All i can suggest is ask the guy for the chassis number of the trailer, call the manufacturers and ask what size and type you need.

You'd have to be very unlucky to get a puncture. Bearing collapse or binding brakes would be more my concern with a 'new to you' boat.
Phoning Hallmark might do it, but when I rang them they said that it could be one of several hub types used.

Thats what I thought... ...second time I took my new trailer out it came home on the back of a recovery truck! I had a can of tyre foam stuff with me... ...but puncture was way to big for it! Next time out car got a puncture!

Blimey Alice you're very knowledgable for a girlie!

It makes a lot of sense to give the bearings the once over before the Journey, Also bear in mind that trailer tyres is special and not really car tyres so steer clear of the scrappy.

If you can get matey vendor to measure the PCD for you then you could buy a proper job at Towsure which is less than a mile from the red funnel terminal and more or less on your way out of town
