Taylor Made Dock Pro Inflatable Dock Wheels make it easier to guide your boat into a slip. Wind, chop, currents and other hazards can make docking maneuvers tricky. Wheels provide substantial cushioning for your boat to make docking stress-free. Heavy duty, super strong inflatable wheels feature molded valves that let you adjust the level of firmness.
Taylor's smooth rolling wheels are available in 9, 12, and 18 inch diameters. Heavy duty hot-dipped galvanized hardware mounts securely to the dock. 12" and 18" wheels use a large 2" diameter axle housing for maximum strength.
Replacement wheels are available. Sold separately.

I have 18" corner-mounted wheels for my 36' sailboat but the slip is very narrow so I'm considering 12" wheels. Three questions: 1) Are 12" wheels appropriate for a 36' sailboat? 2) Can I simply change out the wheels without changing anything else? 3) What is the best way to keep the wheels clean? They are REALLY hard to keep clean and make a mess of my white hull. Thanks.
The 18" wheels are recommended for a 36' boat. The Taylor Made catalog says bracket and wheel sizes are not interchangeable. Once clean I find that a coating of 303 Aerospace Protectant helps and is easier to clean.

What size are the holes on the bracket? Diameter.
Sorry that information isn't listed in the Taylor Mate information and the box is sealed so I can't measure it.

I've read the responses. However, I need clarification. Does the 18" wheel come with the mounting hardware bracket? I am purchasing new and need it all.
Yes and it works great
Yes it does come with the mounting bracket. I do agree with one of the comments, you may need longer mounting bolts depending on how the corner of the dock you are mounting the wheel on was built. One face of our dock was built flat. The other had an overhang due to the top decking. I had to add a filler piece to make that face flat and had to use longer bolts to go the filler piece and bite into the dock structure.
Yes it does but not the anchor bolts or screws.
does the dock roller incude the metal mounting bracket?
No, this was a replacement for one already installed.
Yes - the one I bought included everything but the nuts and bolts needed to mount it.
I want to know if 12" and 9" sheel use the same bracket, we want replace the 9" wheel to 12",do we need to buy a new bracket?Thanks!
yes-the mounting post is not long enough
Can these dock wheels be installed upside down? My application does not deliver the right heighth for standard mounting, I would need to mount lower or inverted. Thanks, David.
Yes. Just make sure you put some grease on the mounting shaaft
David, I think they would work. They would be placed on the botton of the wood dock. However, if the bottom of the wood dock is in the water, I don't think it would work.
Have no experience mounting upside down. From looking at the design I would think they could be. Biggest issue might be placement of angle iron bracket upside down. However, that would also really position the wheel much lower than normal.
Cqn you buy the wheel only without the mountings?
Use the drop down menu near the price to select the wheel..< a href="http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=4586" target="_blank">http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=4586< /a>
18" wheel was installed on the downwind side of a floating dock. The bolts that come with the unit are too short (I think they were 2") for a good secure installation. I used 4" lags to get thru the two layers of 2" timbers which are on the perimeter of the dock.

Go with the bigger wheel. It will save wear and tear on your boat.
