I take 2 in at a time and I rotate once a year using jack stands and I jack it up using an 8 ton bottle jack.

Getting ready to do this soon myself. Have never really taken it to someone yet for tires and I'm not so sure they know the proper way to lift it. So I think I'll do it myself the first time. Like mentioned above, one side at a time.

1) Lift a tire off the ground with the hydraulic jack under the spring perch.
2) Place a safety stand as close as possible to the jack and lower the axle on the stand
3) Repeat on remaining tires
4) Remove all 4 tires, drop 'em at the tire shop on the way to work next day
5) Pick up new tires and wheels at lunch time
6) Install tires and wheels
7) Lower each wheel off the stands
8) Go for 20 mile ride
9) Re-torque lug nuts


Simple and easy!

Do the axles rest directly on the jack stands? I thought I read somewhere that you shouldn't jack your unit off the ground using the axle, but is it OK to rest the unit on a jack stand using the axle?

One thought, if you have Dexter Torflex axles and you take it to a tire shop, make sure they DO NOT jack it up by the axles, which is most likely what they will try to do. Tire shops specialize in car tires. I'm not convinced that they know how to deal with the various types and sizes of consumer level trailers.

All my trailers have had Torflex axles. I've always set my axle mounts on blocks and took the wheels in separate to have tires mounted.

Don't forget to break the lug nuts before you take all the weight off them.

I use 2 20ton bottle Jack's and take the wheels to discount tire. I also use an impact wrench to take them off. I am lucky to have a flat paved parking area large enough to do this type thing. I also have a son-in-law right next door.

I always take mine off two at a time.

Then Check other things like bearings and brakes while they are off.
