12" on mine although I like the looks of the larger wheels better.
Since mine are tucked up under the body they don't look too bad.

I was just trying to fill out the fender. Gave up on 16" and settled on 15" with big tires.

....I am firmly in the "big" wheel camp...15's on ours...keep in mind that the different designations(75,70,65,60,etc) will have significant differences in height for the same size tire(15,16,17,etc)

p.s. here is a tire size calculator to play/see the difference in different tires...MJ

Is there one trailer (HF, Red, TSC) that is easily changed to 15"?
(I'm dreaming of a 5' x 8')

Otherwise what would I have to do, to modify the wheels?

...In all cases but 2, I feel it is not worth the expense of buying/modifying most of these trailers for 15" wheels since it would require a hub and most usually, an axle change to accomplish...the larger HF(1800#) trailer has 5 bolt hubs as does the 5x10 from RedTrailer...in these cases, the hubs are right on for a wheel swap, however with all of the bolted trailers, there are clearance problems between the tires/body, when you goto a bigger tire...it can certainly be done BUT...........

I guess that depends on how much tequila he has.

...hey, I have gone in circles all my life...now if that isn't a definition of a "big" wheel, I just don't know what would qualify... :D :lol: ;)

There actually is a Big Wheel for adults. We need a few of these at the next gathering -- and lots of booze. Oh, the memories we could make. :lol:
