Default ATV trailer re-build

Bought this trailer for next to nothing this past weekend. I have some ideas but would really like to see what everyone is pulling.
The trailer deck area is 4X4.

Show me some pics

They make four bolt atv wheel that will match up to your trailer. Also they have adapters on amazon.

The black one with the ATV tires you posted above is mine. BEST build I ever did when it comes to helping on the lease and around the place. The ATV tires really help with weight. I can put 800 pounds of corn on it and haul it up the side of a mountain out west like its not even there. Go all-out now and it will last you forever.

I have an identical trailer that I had a 65 gallon water tank on but the tank fell off last month and split. I like your idea and may do the same.

This is the trailer I use right now, but Im out west as well so it eats up those little street tires, breaks tail lights and its just not very heavy duty.
I need a tough little trailer ! Yours is the goal!
