Snowmobile Trailer Tires and Wheels

Winter is coming! With winter comes snow, and with snow comes snowmobiles. It's important to know all the facts about snowmobile trailers, tires, and rims so that you're ready for the season when the season is ready for you.  Preventative maintenance today could be the difference between a great journey and never getting to start one.

Many snowmobile trailers are stored for a good portion of the year since they are only used for a short period of time. Unfortunately this can cause the tires and wheels to experience the following:snowmobile.jpg

  • Flat Spots-Fault in the wheel shape
  • Dry Rotting-Cracks in the sidewall
  • Rust / corrosion on wheels-Can lead to leaking
  • Flat Tires-Tire with on air pressure
  • Out of Round Tires-The tread of the tire does not rotate in true circle

Before heading out to the trails, it's important to check all aspects of your trailer tires and wheels. Ensuring they are properly installed, torqued, and holding their max PSI will save future headaches. All of this will mean a safe and smooth ride, and prevent any damage ahead of time that may occur to the trailer, tires, rims, or even your snowmobiles!

RecStuff.com recommends using a Galvanized wheel for all snowmobile trailers. Galvanized rims are great for any trailer that will deal with a lot of salt, such as in winter or saltwater. Hot dipped galvanizing protects the rim against the elements, engulfing the steel wheel into molten zinc for it's anti-corrosion power.

Typically snowmobile trailers use smaller trailer tires such as 8 Inch and 10 Inch.
