Too right JW.
I can't believe we spend £1000+ on a trailer, which is totally galvanised, apart from the wheels, which are painted! Seems bonkers to me, as these are usually first to hit the brine.
If you're looking for wheel loading data, the Avonride website lists the load capacities of virtually all wheels and tyres used in the trailer industry. along with every dimension you could ask for.
