    Ok, if i get them will i still be able to use the trailer if i needed a flat deck?

    also how do you think fastening boards around the tires will work?

    IF you needed to take them off, it's not that hard if you have a cordless drill. the boards thing would work but you still have the issue you're concerned about needing a flat deck... my advice on the fastraps. chunk the screws they send, go to a hardware stop and get you some lag bolts with HEX heads on them. WHat they send is a phillips head screw. my drill actually stripped some of them. With a hex headed lag bolt I could have used my impact to run them in a LOT easier.

    I use ratchet tie down straps and secure them nice and tight. Works well for me!
