Wheels

Transport wheels for SIB sorry bet this has been asked many times before, I have a set that are the 6" inflatable type are these ok or should I replace them with a set of bigger bit fatter wheel barrow wheels which I also have from when I tried kayaking,

The bracket ali box section that holds the wheels is held in place with blot/wingnut but I am a bit concerned that the bolt/wingnut might come loose,
any suggestion`s

6" diameter is tiny and would be useless where I launch on pebbles/sand etc - they just dig in or stick on large pebbles. I tried 8" and they were no good - I have found the solid really wide large slick tread type work much better, like this:

Sand hopper wheel 10" Launch trolley wheel | eBay

But they are heavy, I've just bought a pair of these below to try as they were the widest and largest practical size (10" with an 85mm tread width) I could find:

2 X 260MM.(10") INFLATABLE PNEUMATIC WHEELS - Sack Truck/Trolley, Garden Trailer | eBay

Your 6" might be OK on a concrete slipway with a lightweight outfit though.

Not wishing to tread on your toes Max but the link you sent for the inflatable sack barrow wheels are the same wheel/ tyre combo I was plagued with punctures with.
I actually created a thread on here about them!
Six punctures last season and one puncture in three outings already this year!
I got shot of them last week.
Good when they are not punctured!
I would avoid them like the plague!

Again a bit narrow - issue with these is they sink in on wet sand, depends on your typical launch terrain though of course.
