I have HF 12" wheels/tires on one of their 4'x8' utility trailers and they are holding out just fine after 14 years and 10k? miles. I routinely tow it at 75-80 mph... I DO have a spare "just in case" mounted underneath at the rear of the trailer.

They say property of Uhaul.
That's funny right there........I answered an add in the Farm Market Bulletin here in La. for a tow dolly on the cheap.

Calling I asked if it was in need of repair for the price he was asking. To my total surprise he said that the dolly was stolen from Uhaul. Really? Your going to tell someone outright that your selling stolen property?

You can guess where my next call was made to. He made the Rayne paper.

I absolutely hate a thief.

My 2 foot flatbed trailer uses 16 inch tires,i always run LT tires (light truck),they last pretty good.
A few years ago i needed 2 new tires,and the tire store talked me into trailer tires,i knew better...
Both of them have blown out,one taking a fender with it,the other did no damage.
So,early this week i go buy 2 new LT tires,i took the spare off and put both new ones on,the spare had a date code of 2001! YIKES!
But,it was better than the 2 trailer tires..

Here in Ontario, anything other than a designated trailer tire will fetch you a fine these days. Looking forward to more freedom the next few years.

Time for a new signature line!!
