Tire and Wheel Combination Rated for 12K for Use on a Boat Trailer


Looking for a tandem wheel kit including wheels and tires for a boat trailer. 12000 lb or better capacity.

Although we do not have tandem wheel kits, we do offer a variety of tire/wheel combinations that you can use for your boat trailer.

We do have some tire and wheel combinations that meet your criteria of working for a boat trailer and meeting or exceeding a 12,000 lbs weight capacity, but you will need to make sure that they are compatible with your hubs and any fenders that you might have on your trailer.

For 4 tires and wheels that have at least a 12,000 lbs capacity you will need to have tires rated for at least a Load Range of G. In that category we have the tires size 235/85-16 Radial tires with a 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. I recommend the Taskmaster Provider # A16RGBML as it has an aluminum construction that helps it to resist corrosion that would happen from the water.

If there is any difference in this tire and what you currently have and you are unsure if it will work or not just let me know what your current tire size is and what the bolt pattern is on your current tires and wheels and I can let you know. I have attached some helpful articles on tire sizes and bolt patterns for you to check out.

Please keep in mind that your boat trailer (or any trailer for that matter) is limited by the component with the least weight capacity. If your boat trailer or other components cannot handle at least 12,000 lbs then your weight capacity will be restricted to the least rated component.
