C22 trailer wheel roller system

Postby Malcareels » Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:43 pm

Is there an optimum tyre pressure for the C22 roller system?
I recently replaced all of my tyres and tubes and inflated them to max recommended pressure but boat clearly ended up too high for the rest of the rollers on the trailer. Mal

I would inflate to maximum pressure because those wheels take a lot of load. Adjust the height of the others if needs be.

With the wheelbarrow wheels? Yes. I think that was a standard setup for C22s. The difference is that on my trailer the previous owner had them filled with foam so there's no need to inflate them. You should be able to get that done at some tyre places. It makes the tyre really tough.
