Transom launching wheels

Probably another thread that's been done so apologies before I ask
Can you point me in the direction of a decent pair of all round transom wheels.
The places I have in mind for launching are very different to each other. Gravel beach, sand, grass and concrete ramp.

Worth a search, one of the most asked topics on here. You need to spec for the worst surface ie gravel/sand so need sand hopper wide type wheels.

Bewildering selection available. In truth less of a problem for you with a short SIB and light motor compared with larger heavy outfits that get bogged down on difficult surfaces and have the potential to twist/bend the legs of cheaper less substantial types.

First decision is if you want legs that clip on just for launch/recovery or the flip up type that can stay on.

Then it's about wheel/tyre size to best run over the worse launch surface you might use.

Two threads that might interest...

How far do you move your SIB on transom wheels?

Best wheels/tyres for transom wheels.
