thanks for the tire measurement.

I also called Mark at boatmate and found out that the 14" wheel package sits 1" lower than the 18". This is good for me, 14" are cheaper and they provide more sidewall cusion and the optional 14" look pretty good and will fit under the garage height clearance better

Sounds like somebody is doing some serious planning. Any news on your blue baby?

that 1" made a difference in my garage in NY. I had to take the light cover off the tower light on my boat to leave the tower up during winter.. ha..

Mine are gear alloy 711mb but gear alloy has discontinued that so not sure what they are using on 12s and 13s

Here's a pic of the wheels for 2012 however I can't find any brand name on them so I'm not sure. Very similar to the wheels on brads trailer but personally I like his a little better.
