If it's only 500lbs would skids maybe be an answer?

Otherwise there's a way of doing it using an inner tube rather than a tyre, more of an art than a science but essentially you partially inflate the tube around the time, then tie it with loops of rope around the thing then inflate it some more...

Though if it's a small boat trailer it could be tricky finding car rim sized tubes - forklift etc. tyres may have tubes that'd work. But on say 14" or 15" normal rims I'm not sure how much odds doing it would really make.

Alternatively trick a bunch of people in to lifting it for you every time you go boating...
