Hi guys
One of my Trailer tires is cupping really bad.
The tires are stock cheap'os and I will be getting Radials
of some sort, balanced too.

Does anyone know of a place that can align the right side of my axle
( Align = Bend it straight) :eek:
It has to be putting a strain on my wheel bearing and gas milage.

Thanks
Tony

You may be better off/cheaper just to order a brand new axle and replace it.

You may have a bad spring, but when I think of cupping i think of little worn spots or dents in tire that is caused by worn spring or shock. Alignment being bad or spring would cause tire to wear out on one side or edge. Overloading boat on long trip can damage spring leading to wear on one side of tire.

How often do you pull the drain plug in your boat? You might have a whole lot of water in the bottom and dont know it... That extra weight will definitely cause your axle to bend..
