So, I have been tinkering with the boat as of late as it is in the garage. I noticed that my spare is (5) lug while my wheels are (6). I can assure you this is the spare that came with the trailer as it is brand new and the guy I bought the boat from rarely used it (40) hours upon purchase. So... anyone wanna trade??? 5 lug for 6?

The not funny part is the money I am going to be out buying a new wheel and tire. :(

I think someone swaped spares LOL.

Why are you out Tire money. Just go buy a new rim and transfer the tire.

I do find it interesting your trailer is a 6 lug axle. I think i have need a 6 lug axle on a Moomba. Not that i look at them all the time LOL.

I actually have a spare 5 lug rim from my boat. I just havnt got around to selling it. I really need to go threw my shed,,i got a lot of chit i dont need for the boat in there.

Correct me if I'm wrong but a lot of the single axle trailers are 6 lug and tandem's are 5 lug.

If you have any used tire shops around town you may be able to do a trade. We have several around here and most are willing to wheel and deal a little on stuff like that.

Good thing you haven't needed it yet Casey! Could you imagine how pissed you'd be sitting on the side of the road on the way to the lake and finding that out... :mad:

Berg, that's how I understood as well.

Single = 6
Dual = 5

sounds like the dealer grabed a wheel and tire sitting in the corner and bolted it on as the spare

guys above are correct-6 bolt 15"wheel for single axle, 5 bolt 14" wheel for tandem axle trailer

That's what I was thinking as well. Tempted to call Dallas Ski and see if they would do the right thing and swap it out. If indeed that is the right thing.

I don't even know what these things are worth David. It's the chrome rim... brand new tire.

Casey,

I say start with the dealer and go from there. Glad you didn't find this out on the side of the road!

Well, I am the second owner though. Wouldn't think I would qualify.

Scared me. I went out and checked mine just to be sure. I bought my spare online on ebay or something from a guy in AR or MI or someplace. It checks out -- 6 lug for my single axle. Whew! Relief. Can't believe I would have bought the wrong one but wanted to be sure. It was a while ago.
