We are thinking about putting new wheels and tire on our V-drive trailer. What are everyones thoughts on using automotive style aluminum wheels on a tandem axle trailer? Our concern is whether they can handle the side loads produced when turning sharply. Same thing with the tires, a salesman told us that you have to use 4 ply tires for the twisting when you turn. The trailer formerly had reverse steel wheels with radial TA's that are obviously auto tires.
We are looking to get by as cheap as possible so we were tempted to just get 2 ply tires for it.
