    Where are you guys getting your rims?

    I have a Triton single trailer. 12” x 4” rims. If I want to get alloys what size can I go with? Where are you guys shopping?

    WeterDR,

    try RecStuff.com

    I used them recently, but I have 13” on my single & double Triton.

    Got my wheels/tires off ebay a few years ago. I *think* they were about $90 each.

    I just replaced the tires; got them from a local dealer.

    The original set came with Load B rated tires, new set is Load C.

    I got my wheels and tires already mounted and balanced with center caps from KingofWheels.com. ST175/80R13. 290.00 shipped. Pretty happy with the deal and looks. Then used one of the original tires as a spare.

    You can, but of course, you'd have to pay someone to mount/balance them.

    But, how old are they and is there sign of cracking on the sidewalls?

    Most recommend replacing them every 3-5 years regardless of mileage.

    I replaced mine after 3 years because they had more cracks than I was comfortable with as I was getting ready for a 600 mile tow.

    ...
    Absolute maximum is seven years from the DOT manufacture date on the tire sidewall.

    This includes the spare tire. In fact the spare tire typically ages faster than the tires touching the road.

    Trailer tires that are often rolling down the road generally remain more flexible as they age and the tread wears. The frequent rubber flexing of tread and sidewalls while the tire is rolling along massages the oils through the rubber layers, helping maintain the rubber flexibility.

    Trailer tires that are rarely used and often sitting still for long time periods tend to harden over time as the oils that make the rubber flexible evaporate from the surface layers of the rubber. Which eventually leads towards visible cracking of the now fragile outer rubber layer.

    But
    , an old trailer tire that is not exhibiting visible cracks does not mean it is ‘still good’.

    Taking a spare tire that has not been used for years and one day moving it to the axle is risking a sudden failure as the now fragile and aged rubber layers are forced to flex as the tire rolls along with weight on it.

    Yes Sir...Totally agree ! I have been looking for some cool aluminum 13 in auto rims but cant find anything cool. I can re drill the bolt pattern + or _ 8mm with hardened inserts and/or weld up the holes and drill a 5x 4.5 pattern but all the nice auto wheels are in 15 and up sizes.

    Bought these from my local Triton dealer, paid $200 each with E rated tires:
