1.  Can I put Boar Wheels as a direct replacement for my 16” trailer tire/wheels?

Yes. If your trailer has 8 on 6.5” lug pattern and is lug-centric (conical seat lug nuts) with ½” or 9/16” lug nuts then the Boar Evron 67 single wheel or the Muret 67 Aluminum wheel will be a direct bolt on replacement. With single wheel, 5/8" studs, the Evron 673T or the Muret 67 & 75 will be the best hub centric (centers on the center bore) replacement option for you. If your trailer has 16" dual wheels with an 8 on 6.5" lug pattern, hub centric, and you're currently running 235/85R16s then the Hooper Dual wheel will be a perfect direct bolt on replacement. You can always call us with your trailer specifications (axle size, GVWR, current tires size & stud size) and we can help you determine the correct application.

6,005 lbs. is the maximum load at 125 psi for a Load Range J.

4.  Do you offer dually wheels?

Yes.  The Hooper Dual is a 19.5”x6.75” dually wheel application.

5.  Do you offer an aluminum alloy wheel?

Yes, we offer the Muret Aluminum line. The Muret 67 is available in either a lug centric design for 1/2" & 9/16" studs or a hub centric design for 5/8" lug studs. The Muret 75 is available in the hub centric design for 5/8" studs only.

6. Will I be able to find replacement tires easily?

Yes. The 225/70R19.5 is in the top 5 commercial tires sold in North America. They are on many pick up and delivery vehicles (FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.) and are on many medium duty trucks (F450, F550, 4400 & 5500 models). Because of this replacement tires are readily available through most tire dealers and online. You can also find high tread used tires in most areas.

7.  Why not just go 17.5” on my trailer?

Below are the three main reasons why 17.5" tire/wheel combos may not be right on your trailer:

  • Limited availability:  
Since 17.5" tires are not widely used as Original Equipment outside the trailer world, it can be difficult to find a replacement.
  • Lower test standard: 17.5" tires and smaller are tested to a different standard than larger commercial tires. According the to the NHTSA the test standard for inch pounds of breaking strength for a 17.5" tire or smaller is 6,300/in.lbs. with a 3/4" plunger. For 19.5 and larger commercial tires that goes up to 15,000/in.lbs. with a 1.25" plunger. The construction standard is not equivalent to the larger rim diameter commercial tires.
  • Lower speed ratings
:  Tires rated for higher weights often have strict limits on speed – even as low as 62 MPH for Load Range J 235/75R17.5.
