Wheel Material Options
When choosing a trailer wheel, your first consideration should be picking the right size and bolt pattern. Beyond that, however, there are typically several choices at a variety of different price points, with options for different budgets and tastes.
Material is often the determining factor in how much a trailer wheel costs. Here’s an overview of the three most popular choices:
- Steel: Steel is the most economical option when buying trailer wheels. However, just because steel is affordable doesn’t mean it’s a bad choice — steel is strong, durable and ideal for long-term use in rough conditions. Steel’s main disadvantage is that it’s heavier, which can impact acceleration.
- Aluminum: Aluminum is lighter than steel but also softer, which makes it more prone to dents and scratches. However, many premium trailer wheels feature special coatings which improve their durability. Aluminum also has a shinier appearance that many prefer to steel.
- Chrome: Chrome wheels offer a great compromise between the quality of steel and the premium look and feel of aluminum. Chrome plating improves a wheel’s strength and durability while giving it that characteristic shine that will make your trailer stand out.

Tire Replacement and Service
Trailer wheels don’t typically wear out, but they can incur damage that requires replacement. Sometimes the damage will be readily apparent, while other times it will only be evident with testing and close inspection.
Some signs you may need to buy a new trailer wheel include vibration and shakiness, poor handling, and excessive heat or noise. If your tire keeps puncturing with no other cause, that could also be a sign of damage, too.
