    The other night my mowing guys arrived at the shop after they said our Pace Summit 16' enclosed tailer had some loud noises coming from the passenger side axles. So as I'm impacting the lugnuts off today I noticed that 4 of them had been worn down and loose around the rim because of vibration. I impacted them on this spring and check them often but they've never been worn down like this. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow because it's kinda hard to explain but basically I think it's a bad design because on pace trailers, the stock rims don't even seat snug around the hubs. All the weight sits on the lugs. Anyone else experience this with their Pace enclosed trailers or are all enclosed trailers like this? I'm probably gonna have to replace all the lugs and nuts on both axles for safety.
