Looking for some new tires for my boat. 17’Crestliner. I want some good tires that are durable and can handle trips to Canada and some tourney style abuse.

I have had Dico and they have made several trips up there. Goodyear also make a good trailer tire. It really doesn't matter as long as you get something with a high load rating. I think the ones on my trailer are load range C.

Be sure to go with a raidial type tire if you were running a bias ply in the past. They will run cooler and last longer, plus they pull much easier.

Big Bobber is right on point. The best IMO is the Goodyear Marathon Radial C rated.

If you are running the original tire from your trailer manufacturer you should expect one year at best with moderate to heavy useage. (some of the top of the line trailers are different)The best thing you can do is take that trailer in and get a good set of radial tires. It will be the best investment you can make!!

One thing, beings your in getting new tires have the guys put the loaded trailer up on the alignment rack and have the trailer aligned, this will add many miles on your tires. Paul

From what I've heard if you have bias ply tires on your trailer you should replace them with bias ply tires. Radial tires have too much side to side play and can start the trailer fish tailing at high speeds. This can be a bad thing when the tralier wants to pass the car your towing with...

Good Luck....

As always Chemist your info is golden. Of course I ment the trailer, didn’t mean to confuse you. Ha! If it helps I have a heavy duty shore lander trailer.
About getting the trailer up on the alignment rack and have the trailer aligned how does that work. What do they align? One more question; I have bearing buddies on the trailer, how often do you guys check the grease in them/or replace it? j0078811(t).gif

Alot of boat trailers are assembled in a hurried fashion. Sometimes the axle isnt quite square under the trailer, a simple sliding of the spring mounts will do the trick, camber and caster issues are dealt with by tweeking the axle itself to bring it into specs, I had this done to my trailer a couple years ago, my tires are wearing but in the correct way, before I was cupping on the inside, took it in, no longer a problem, that was 25,000 miles ago. No piece of fishermans equipment gets abused or neglected like a boat trailer..A good tire shop should be able to handle it..Good luck! Paul

    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
    • The curved blades may very well be the "Jet" part that made it different from their other hand augers?
    • It's always nice to have fresh homemade pickles in the winter. Jalapeno peppers will be next.
    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like what I had heard from the guy I met at upper red who was from the area. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
