How to Choose the Right Trailer: Trailer Axle and Wheels Spotlight

Tractor Tyres

Trailers come in all manner of shapes and sizes, and that includes the trailer axle and wheels. Naturally the type of trailer you choose will depend on what you’re going to use it for. There’s little point opting for a lightweight version if you’re transporting large quantities of stone, for example. A trailer can be a big investment, so there are a number of things to consider.

Established since the 1980s, here at Fieldens OTR we’re specialists in the supply of wheels and tyres. We understand that trailer axle and wheels are the most important element of any trailer. No matter what type you choose, you can relax in the knowledge that we can keep it running for you. Our bespoke options allow us to supply wheels and tyres for every requirement. So read on if you’d like to know more about choosing the right trailer.

What’s your trailer for?

There are many number of reasons why you might require a trailer. Luckily, there are trailer tyres and wheels available for every need, from agriculture and industry to domestic camping use. The important thing is to choose your trailer according to its intended purpose.

For tough daily use in agriculture or building, the construction of your trailer will be critical. Look for something with a strong frame that will give support to the entire trailer. Also consider the trailer axle and wheels, as suspension could be important if you’re planning to carry livestock, for example.

It’s also important to know the towing capacity of your vehicle. If you’re using a tractor or industrial vehicle that shouldn’t be a problem. For smaller domestic vehicles, your handbook should tell you what weight you’re limited to. This is essential if you want to avoid expensive damage to your vehicle.

Maintaining your trailer

If you’re going to make that investment in a trailer, you need to know it’s going to last. The trailer axle and wheels will be doing the bulk of the hard work. That means they’ll be exposed to a lot of the wear and tear. No matter how good your wheels and tyres are, keep in mind that they won’t last forever.

If your trailer is used regularly, at some point the tyres and wheels may need to be replaced. But you don’t have to let this affect your choice of trailer. No matter what the make or model, we can offer peace of mind about keeping your trailer working efficiently.
