Just wanting to find out if others have experienced getting punctures on their transom launch wheels.
I have been plagued with repeated puncturing.
Six last season and one already this season and I'm only on my third launch!!!!
I have been using 3 inch wide inflatable tyres on mine.
I launch on sandy beaches mostly, with an occasional launch on shingle.
My Sib is trailered so I reverse my 4x4 to the waters edge, flip the wheels down slide the sib off the trailer, push the Sib the remaining 3ft into the water and voila!
It might be the salt water that is perishing the tyres / tubes making them more susceptible to puncturing??
I have used three different brand of wheels - all with the same result - bang hisssssssssss!
I have now purchased a set of puncture proof wheels / tyres.
They fit right onto my current rig and are slightly wider with a slightly lower profile.
They are from Indespension and are filled with a composite foam.
My local dealer assures me I can't puncture these
Going fishing tomorrow so I will post pics of new set up with some feedback on their performance.
