10" Jockey Wheel: Ideal for larger trailers and heavier loads, a 10" jockey wheel provides stability and smooth maneuverability.


8" Jockey Wheel: This size is suitable for medium-sized trailers and offers a good balance of maneuverability and load-bearing capacity.


6" Jockey Wheel: Smaller trailers or those with lighter loads can benefit from a 6" jockey wheel, which provides easy handling and maneuvering.
