The new aristocraft's trailer needs something done with the wheels. They ugly :( . I'm either going to paint them or replace them. I'd like to find some aluminum wheels(depending on the cost).What do you guys think??

What size wheels are those Jim, I couldn't tell from the pic? (13", 14", ?) Looks like the standard 5 lug 4 1/2" bolt pattern, same used on older Fords like Mustang, Ranger, etc..

Paint to match boat or trailer would be least expensive, or pick new ones to suit your taste; www.easternmarine.com/mag-aluminum-trailer-wheels

Finally got my tires switched today. I think the wheels add just enough "bling" to the trailer. Still gotta repaint the fenders ,get some new traction tape for the tops and put the carpet step pads on the fender braces on the other side. Don't think I'm going to repaint the whole trailer. Just going to touch it up frame wise. Don't want to lose the pinstripes LOL. I figured the boat's a '75 and the trailer is an '84 so I feel the wheels hopefully don't look too out of place on it. What do you guys think??

They got those wheels in a 4 lug that fits the Funliner trailer,but I think they might look out of place on that one LOL.
