    This x10! A person shopping for a Max imo is looking for a lower cost of entry, why jack that up $2k for some aftermarket wheels/tires. People have been pulling trailers with 14" wheels/tires for many years/millions of miles without issues. And how sure are you that the Max comes with 14's? The two I have seen come with the same wheels that my trailer has, so I assumed they were the base wheels.

    IMHO that's $2000 I'd rather spend on boards, ballast, stereo etc.

    It's going to be the promo Max for my local shop, It's not a huge deal just would feel better towing.

    Talking with the shop when putting in the build we went and checked their current Max and it had 14's on it. I owned a boat with 14's and it took 4 years before I had problems. Now I did follow the max speed suggestion, not crazy tight corners, and off the ground when not in use. I personally think the larger wheels will look much better with such a big boat. Odds are getting larger wheels on a Max isn't going to happen.

    Promo boat then go for it. They would look really good. The bigger wheels change the cool factor for sure.

    And since promo check every box. Show people what they could have!!

    I don't know if your theory that 18's are better is valid. There's a lot of debate out there about using LT (light truck) tires instead of ST (special trailer) tires.

    The ST's are going to have higher and likely stiffer sidewalls. I think they'll do better for the sideways dragging that happens when you do tight turns with your double axle trailer. The ST's are rated to 65mph. The LT's are probably rated for higher speeds. You'll have to really look and see what the load ratings are on each version.

    the #1 reason why you'd go to 18" wheels on a trailer is for ASTHETICS. it's all about the looks. Also, the 18's are wider so boatmate needs to add 2" to the fender width.

    Trying to get the side bins for the MAX, you can't pick them online so Marine Products is helping since my order is already in. I have to say the above the engine tray is damn awesome but I don't know how the hell you get it out, LOL.

    Pop off one of the engine hatch struts on the lower end and you can then work the tray out and get it out. Pry the little cap off and then you can pull the lower strut mount off.

    I went the route of cutting access holes in the side divider panels so Incan nice the latches from the locker side and remove the side panel.

    Ya I didn't want to bend and break it so I just left it alone. I will have to figure out and easy take out since I check my oil before and after running the boat during the break in.
