On hard, flat surfaces these work fine. If there is a slope and you are going at it from an angle, the rubber has a tendency to "roll" off the hub.
Tried to pull the boat up on a beach and the wheels basically dug in. This was not a soft sand beach at a park, it was a coastal beach where the sand is packed.
The mounting brackets and arms are plenty strong. Wish they would have used a wider, stronger, and possibly solid surface tire so it would work equally well on softer surfaces. (Posted on 7/16/16)
