    Utility Trailer Tire Size

    Indeed you won't get a 13 or 14 on there and if it does fit it will rub the fenders once you put a load in it

    Utility Trailer Tire Size

    I believe it was on etrailer there was a question about going from the 4.80 to the 5.30 and the response was that because the 5.30 is a wider/larger tire it would generate more heat then a 4.80 i would imagine that would only come into play in highway speeds above 55 mph. oh hey a quick...

    Fill oil filter at every oil change

    If its feasible I will occasionally prefill the oil filter but in some cases depending on how the filter is mounted and what it takes to get the filter up in where its suppose to be (some aren't located in an easy spot or angle), I'd end up dumping all the oil out that I just put in. even if it...
