As the summer season winds down to a close, it's time to think about winterizing your boat. While you are winterizing your boat, boating accessories such as your trailer should also be inspected. Of particular importance is the wear on your tires. If your tires are showing signs of wear, it may be time to have them replaced. Replacing tires is simple, if you know where to get them.
A good place to find replacement parts for your boat is a boating dealership that specializes in your boat's brand. A dealership can order parts, including the tires for the boat's trailer, directly from the manufacturer. Although you will pay the full factory price for these parts, you can be assured of their quality. If you are not inclined to replace your tires yourself, a dealership is a good option because it may also be able to replace the tires for you.
Sporting Goods Outlet
Another good place to buy replacement parts such as new tires for a boat trailer is a sporting good outlet such as Bass Pro or Cabela's sporting goods. Like a boating dealership, these outlets have the ability to order parts directly from a dealership. Additionally, some parts are available through these companies online. These companies even have a service center to help replace your tires. However, these major outlets are typically only located in major urban areas, necessitating the customer to travel great distances to get there.
Online Part Store
Some businesses sell parts directly online, either through their own website or a third party outlet such as eBay. These businesses are an ideal way for the do-it- yourself boater to find the parts they need, including replacement tires or rims. These items can generally be shipped to the purchaser's home. There is also generally some degree of customer service, although this is often lower when compared with boat dealerships or sporting goods outlets.
