    I have a ATV trailer that is the right size and HD for hauling wood but with the wet weather I am having trouble with the narrow tires in the woods, anybody know where I can get a 5 lug rim for a ATV like tire? I need something that is much wider than a trailer tire for the woods. I went to Tractor supply and they have all kinds of tires like what I want but no rims for a 5 lug axle.

    Thanks

    It all depends on what the bolt pattern is on your 5 lug trailer. Should be able to go to the auto salvage yard to find rims.

    I was told a 5 lug trailer rim is a 5 lug, I have found some rims but they are all too narrow to take anything but a regular trailer tire.

    try 5 x 4.5 lug ( 5 lug ) rims from Jeep and also the Ford bronco II , and other small Ford 5 lug rims. The older Full size Fords were/are 5 x 5.5 lug ( 5 lug ) as well as Dodge full size . You need to figure the lug pattern of the 5 lug before you can narrow down rims.

    "ATV trailer" could be anything and any axle and lug system could of been used .

    I got some great tires for my golf cart at www.nebraskatire.com not sure if they have what you are looking for, but it's worth a shot.

    What size tires wre you hoping to get 13", 14", or 15" and how much room do you have claerance from the face of the hub to the trailer frame.
