good place for trailer tire replacement?

I have a spare thats shredded. One place i went wanted to just sell me the whole wheel and tire for top $$$. Is there someplace out there that will sell/replace just the tire for a reasonable price? I am a cheap ass so....

I haven't heard of a place that would only do it with a wheel.

Try Costco, Schwab, Precision, or any others.

I am not a big fan of Les Schwab but they have been great for Trailer Tires. I have shredded tires on the road and they got me going in no time. Nice thing about them is they are everywhere.

trailer!,,boy, you nailed that one down!

standard ford or chevy or honda or yugo wheel and lug spacing?
Wooden spoked wheels from the oregon trail days,??
sure,,everybody has a few of those,,hope the color matches,,does yours look like this one?
-----------------------------------









------------------------------------
the blue ones won't work in the red holes,,,

or is there a tire size plainly marked on the frikken sidewall of the tire?

,,that might help as a starting point, trailers were made from two long sticks hooked loosely together and dragged along behind yer horse,,,Oh no,, that was the marks they made,,,they were easy to follow,,"Can ye find 'em Dan'l Boone?",,"no problem,,we'll just follow the trailers, since they haven't invented tire sizes yet."

Oh,, and, how do you like that bumper my naybor built and put on his Jeep?

"So,,,are you walking to work or bringing your lunch?" llv

"If I had a tire,,I'd tire in the morning,,
I'd tie her in the evening!,,,just tightly enuff that there's no real struggle!

trailer tires are junk. I've used pre-enjoyed car tires with no issues. VERY cheap. Assuming you have a car sized trailer tire.

The big difference between trailer and car tires is trailer tires have more of the waxes that keep them from cracking. Trailers sit a lot. They don't get heated up, which spreads the waxes or components that keeps them from cracking. So trailer tires last longer, but wear faster than car tires. If you use your trailer a lot then car tires would work well. You shouldn't mix them because of the difference in construction may affect handling.

Not arguing but just my experience of having blown properly maintained trailer tires. A friend also lost 4 out of 6 on his 3 axle toy hauler (so far) but he drives like the trailer isn't there so that may be a contributing factor. I agree don't mix tires.

Trailer tires on only rated for 65 mph. You see a lot of guys going faster than that.

Here's where I bought my last 2 tires for my car trailer: www.onlinetires.com

If your a cheap ass you can save yourself some more $ and mount them up at home with a couple pry bars and soap

My experience with Costco was they had to order tires. I got mine from American Tire...problem was they were about 2X what I thought they'd cost ~$100ea

Les Schwab has been my place of choice for the last several sets of trailer tires. The last time i used the Ellensburg store after shredding two on the Vantage Grade. If they are true trailer tires, Wally World also stocks some sizes already mounted on rims.

Light truck tires with a higher ply count work well. Keep pressure on the higher end to reduce side wall roll.

For some smaller motorsicle & boat trailers, it worked out cheaper for me to go to Coastal or Bi-Mart & buy the tire on the rim, than going to a mates tire shop & ordering just a new tire.

Check on CL maybe.

So,,the original poster asks a question with limited evaluational information, then fails to respond to the many replies that may be of use or some assistance to his quest,,,was this all a ruse by north core ian hacker evangelist preppers?,,,I for one shall not willfully divulge my source for trailer tires!
You'll have to pry my dead trailer tires from their cold rims,,blah, blah, CharltonHeston,blah!
