A rusty aluminum trailer wheels can be replaced with a new, shiny aluminum wheel that can reduce your maintenance costs, according to the American aluminum trailer repair company Aluminum Trailer Wheels.
The company said that after a trailer’s tires are replaced, they need to be cleaned and the wheels and frame replaced, which can take up to three days.
A rusty axle is another issue, as it is not always possible to replace the axle itself.
A damaged trailer wheels will need to get replaced once or twice a year, according with a spokesman for the company.
A trailer’s wheels and tires can cost anywhere from about $5,000 to about $20,000.
If you’re not sure whether you should replace the wheels or the frame, you can consult a licensed professional who can advise you, the spokesman said.
