Wheels complete for trailers
Replacing a complete wheel is often cheaper than replacing a single tyre.
Wheels complete for trailers and caravans
The biggest advantage of buying a complete is wheel is that you can easily replace it yourself (Assuming you have a spanner ). By replacing the wheel yourself, you don't need to hire a mechanic.
Inch size trailer wheel
We have divided the complete wheels into Inch sizes. On this basis, you will know in which subcategory to look. You know which inch size you need by looking at the tyre designation. If it says 4.00-8 on the tyre, it is an 8-inch tyre. If it says 195/50R13, it is a 13-inch tyre. So last number, often behind an R of Radial tyre is the inch size listed.
Rim pitch sizes
Firstly, it is important to know what pitch size you need. These can be the following:
|57 mm (60 mm from 12 inch Rims)
|Rim with grease nipple cut-out

You can determine the hub diameter based on the pitch, this also works the other way round. A 60 mm diameter hub is an Opel pitch, 85 mm is a French pitch & a 67 mm diameter hub is a Rim with grease nipple cut-out.
Most importantly, the hub diameter should be wide enough. The weight of the Trailer should rest on the fixing bolts and not on the hub. So even if there is some play around the hub, this is fine.
What does PR/PLY mean?
The 8 and 10 Inch trailer wheels are often indicated by a PR value in the title. PR (formerly PLY), is the number of layers of rubber incorporated in the tyre, the higher the PR value is the more layers of rubber the tyre has. This greatly affects the tyre's strength. The load-bearing capacity is also indicated in a PR value. It comes in a 4PR or 6PR version. The 4PR variant has a load capacity of 265 kg and the 6PR 335 kg. Both variants are available from different manufacturers.
The DOT coding stands for the production date of the tyre. The DOT coding of 13-inch trailer wheels consists of four digits, the first two digits represent the week and the last two digits represent the year the wheels were produced. In most countries in Europe, the production date of the wheels is not looked at, what matters is the condition of the tyre and whether it has enough tread.
In Austria, they do look at the DOT coding and there your tyre must not be older than eight years.
Is the wheel to be replaced? Then we recommend buying the same size and dimensions. This is because a trailer is made for those dimensions of the wheel. The Trailer will be best behind the car if the original size wheels are fixed under the trailer.
