I recently built a 5x10 utility trailer w/15" wheels. It is great, but it is also very heavy for my Camry and Tacoma 4cyls. I have a set of 12"wheels/tires/springs and a axle that I am thinking about using to build a lighter trailer with. I also put on Buddy Bearing dust caps on the 12s when I was using it a lot. Everybody says that 12" tires suck, but I used it for a year before and didn't really notice anything different than my 15" tires on my new trailer. What gives? What is so bad about 12" tires besides the rinky dink appearance?
