Tire size

Congrats on the gift and welcome to the forum! Many people will be envious of you with that Bambi II!

The tire size from the brochure is 7:50 x 14, 4 ply.

Here is a photo of our Bambi II wheels which should give you an idea of the wheel lug pattern.

Wheel and tire capacity need to be watched carefully -- not just lug pattern. Many whells don't have the load capacity for trailering. I'd suggest re-using the wheels, getting ST tires. Many links in Forums....

Wow, congrats on the free Bambi. Be careful, those vintage trailers may give you aluminitis.
