Mine had spring pins for holding the wheels on the stub axles, but drop pins that are 6mm dia. The wheels do wobble a bit which is why I m going to try and utilize the c-tug as a nose dolly.

I ve also got a trolley for the motor, as I intend dragging the sib and motor seperately when launching, which should take some of the strain off the launch wheels....I hope !

I splashed out on one of these, because of the large dia wheels.

With the Honwave wheels..
I found that most of the play was actually on the wheel axle rather than the transom mounts.
I dropped of the R clip, slipped the wheel off, cut some light plastic (pop bottle will do) and sleeved the wheels, greased it all with marine grease, re-fitted the wheel with an extra fibre washer on, then the R clip just finished it a treat.
Very little wobble now and the wheels run beautifully !

No do not loosen the valve as when you get it to the correct pressure when you uncouple the hose the pressure will drop dramatically.
I have the Bravo 12HP pump with similar circular white adaptors. I also have a 3D lightweight tender and an excel tender both with Halkey Roberts valves. You will notice one end of all the adaptors are all the same size, this is the part that you insert into the valve with the valve closed. Select the adaptor with the bar across that when inserted forces the valve open as the pump starts, remember the noise of the bravo pump when it starts is high volume low pressure which is fine for tubes (2.9-3.2psi) and will automatically stop once at the pressure is reached. If you then alter the setting on the pump ready to pump up the air floor (8.9-9.2psi), the pump will start high volume low pressure for a while and then change to low volume high pressure before eventually stopping at the right pressure.
Just had 3 days on Ullswater with my SIB and the Bravo pump worked fine taking about 13 minutes to pump up my 2.9M 3D superlight tender.
Hope this helps.
