Looking for best prices on trailer tires and batteries

12 posts in this topic

Looks like I need 2 new tires and 2 new batteries:

Tires - 175/80/R13 for a single axle trailer with a 2700 or so LB load. I wish I could go with a bigger rim but I would have to get bigger sheel wells.

Batteries - Need 2 new series 27 batteries for a 24 volt system. I only get 2-3 years on my batteries even though I charge them up once a month in the winter.

Anyone have any recommendations on stores?

Batteries Plus has some really good batteries and have been referred there from the tech at our local marine dealer. We brought four of ours back to the dealer in the past year and they keep exchanging for the same brand. JUNK! They referred us to Batteries Plus and said those are the best ones they have used but don't sell them at the marine dealer. For tires, check out Fleet Farm.

I found a good deal on some boat trailer tires at Menards. Not sure if they'd have your size or not but might be worth a try.

If you just need new skins, look to Discount Tires, they were the best I found. I buy the everstarts from Wallytown, I find they are compareable to others.

I've had good luck with Batteries Plus as well. If you choose to buy from somewhere else, make sure it is a place that does a decent amount of volume so you don't end up with one that has sat on the shelf for some time.

Check out your local fleet supply like Mills or L and M for trailer tires.

Menards for tires fleet farm for the batteries.

We pull a lot of werker (batteries plus brand) batteries out of cars that are junk, maybe there marine batteries are better but I wouldn't even think of using a cranking battery from them.

I wanted to get tire and wheel combos. Menards was about 20 dollars cheaper than anywhere else.

Menards, they just cant quite figure out what kind of store they want to be. Lumber, tires, groceries, whats next clothes? I didnt even know they had tires. Id go to Fleet and/or Farm for tires, and sounds like walmart is the place to be for batteries. I have a werker brand (from batt. plus) that has "werked" quite weel. Its 2 years old.

Walmarts brand is everstart, we call them "Never" start! There deep cycles are really bad! If you get a summer out of them you got lucky!

I bought a dual marine battery (starting/deep cycle) at Fleet Farm and it is still going strong after 7 years. Paid around $90 for it.

Interesting how opinions on batteries can be totally opposite from person to person. I've use Wal-Mart batteries mostly, but I think the two best things I've done is get an onboard charger and use a battery maintainer for winter storage. Check out Northern Tool for the battery maintainer and tires. I'd guess they have batteries too, but never shopped for them there.

I have a 3 year old dual purpose from Fleet farm that needs to be replaced, my question is do I replace it with a dual purpose or a deep cycle. I start my motor with it, but the biggest drain is the gps, fish finder and the lights when I fish at night. can I get by with a regular deep cycle? My motor is a 1989 40hp evinrude. starts pretty easy, but when ever I fish at night, the batter seems to drain pretty good or maybe my battery gauge is bad, but I don't think it is......do they make LED boat lights? If so, those would have a lower draw right? either way I need a new battery for starting the boat and running those minimal electronics. The old one is 3 years old....

Are the Menards wheels radials or bias?

Led lights are about a 1/4 of an amp draw. They make them in many designs, it is all we use on emergency vehicles simply because of the less draw.

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
