Trailer tires

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering where a "go to" place might be around the north/west Metro for boat trailer tires.

I need a pair of P165 80 B 13's. Northern and Fleet Farm don't carry that size.

I will do some calling today but I thought I'd see if someone had that "you gotta go here" suggestion.

Thanks!

Discount tire in Coon Rapids. They carry Maxxis tires in 175/80R13. They are radials.

Thanks Black Bay. I planned to call them but just stopped by instead. 30 minutes later I was leaving with two new 175/80B13. Bias ply not radials. The guy at the counter claims bias ply last longer.

I tried a pair of 175's from Northern but they were too tall and I didn't have much clearance under the fenders. They were about an inch taller than my 165's.

Now the 175's I picked up today are exactly as tall but wider. Now I just have to worry about the outside of the fender rubbing the edge of the tire.

Tire guy says they don't make 165's much anymore. It's an old size style that's hard to come by.

I spent about $90 dollars less though. smile

Discount tire is the only place I go for tires. Awsome costomer service and prices. If its out there they will track it down if you have the time.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
