Hey guys - I am picking up a cheap little trailer to tow behind the Jeep. I want to grab some used tires to put on it before I tow it home from Riverside. The guy I am buying it from says that he thinks that LT245R16's will work... I know very little about tire sizes...I was going to look on Craigslist and ask around to see if anyone has tires I could grab / buy that I can take with me. What different sizes do you think will work if I don't find exactly LT245R16's?
Also, I have my original wheels from the Jeep - so I was thinking of using those and mounting tires on them and then driving up for the trailer. Would those wheels work do you think? The ones on there look pretty thin...and not a lot of extra room but I can't tell. The stock spares I have are these:
* 15x8 aluminum
* 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern
* Backspacing = 5.25"
* Optional wheel with 30" tire package
* Offset = +19 mm
Third thing is that the tail lights need rewired it seems...so I would need those magnetic mounted tail lights for the drive down - but I'd rather not buy a set for just one short trip...does anyone have a set I could borrow?
Here is the trailer - pretty, isn't it? hehe:
