    I just picked the trailer that I will be using for my new ShadowCast. It is used and the tires have some dry rot so I was planning to put new rubber on it. It has 13" tires with 5 lug rims. Is it possible to put a regular car tire and rim on this? Just wondering if I could dress it up a little with some chevy or ford aluminum or something.

    Is the lug radius the same? Will the rim offset fit the fenders?
    Or will the rim cause the tire to rub on the trailer or fender?
