Will it fit on a 5' by 8' trailer?

Wide turf Tires, or the narrower aggs or turfs?

side rails on trailer or Flat deck?

Narrow tires and no rails it should fit.

Yes, it will fit, even with the wide tires. The wide turf tires are not as wide as a Woods 59 mower, obviously, around 60-inches or 5-feet wide. If you do not have the mower deck on it, the turf tires are only about 50-inches wide. Lenghth should be right at 8-feet, as I know I've hauled two lo-boys on a 16-foot trailer.

If you do have the mower deck on it, it will not fit between the rails on a 5-foot trailer. The mower deck cut is 59-inches, but the actual deck is more like 63-inches.

GitTractorMan is right on.
My 184 with the wide tires, chains, and wheel spacers rub both siderails on a 5 x 8 trailer.
The 3160a mower deck will not fit on the trailer while mounted because of the trailer siderails.

My opinion (from experience) is that a 5 x 8 is not really a "big enough" trailer as there is no room to adjust the load or to bring along attachments. With the front tires kissing the front of the trailer, the 3-point hitch sticks out behind the trailer loading ramps.
