Big-Rig Tires: Boar Wheel Rancher

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

A leading supplier of wheels for heavy-duty towing, Boar Wheel Company has recently reengineered its entry-level Rancher steel wheel for use on fifth-wheels and travel trailers. The Rancher wheel-and-tire package comes with load range G commercial-grade truck tires. Upgrading to the 19.5-inch wheel assemblies can reduce sidewall flex seen in 16-inch tires when cornering or maneuvering into tight campsites, and that, in turn, can reduce the chance of tire failure, according to the company. The low-profile wheels are designed for trailers that run on 235/80R16 or 235/85R16 tires and have an eight-lug, 6.5-inch bolt pattern. The 32-inch outer diameter fits most trailers, but make sure to check the dimensions of all wheel wells before purchasing. Changing the diameter of the wheels and tires will require readjusting your hitch height and may require suspension modification to increase wheel-well clearance, thus increasing overall trailer height.

MSRP: $187.95/wheel only; $389.95/wheel and tire
