Sankey trailer and wheel spacer?

I fitted 235/85/16 on my sankey narrow (early type) and when loaded one tire touche on bilt head on the side of the frame. My tire has now a rounded strip off. I know they are suppose to wear 6,50x16 narrower tire but, in 235/85/16 I have no need to carry a spare as my 110 has the same shoes.

I'm leaning on the wheel spacer to get rid of my troubles. Are the one from paddock strong enough?

Kurt, as a sankey owner, you know they take about 1 ton. Is this too much for spacer? Do you often load yours like I do mine?

Jeff, this is less than the axle load on my 130!
No worries about these spacers. They are priceless and do what they are designed for.

Hmm, I'm not sure because I cut the extended part of the original caps off.



It might be to get in trouble with this.
But I'm not sure.

Sort of hijacking this thread, but can you run 7.5x16 XZLs on a Sankey with no spacer without an issue?

I have 235's on mine which is a 60's Mark II. It sounds like the issue is your wheel offset. I have the wolf/nato/130 wheels on mine, no rubbing
