Great prices on wheel/tire combos...
I know this may be more appropriate for the trailer section, but there's not much traffic there. Mods, feel free to move this if need be.
I found a website with great prices on 12" and 13" radial tire/rim combos for our trailers - check it out:
13" fenders are a ripoff, but you'll need 'em if you upgrade:
I just had a flat today on the way to a ride, which prompted me to calculate in my head how much I've spent on bias ply tire/rim combos in the last 7 years - I've probably spent over $800. So I'm converting over to a 13" radial rim/tire combo with fenders over the winter.
Hope this helps.

I've used this site a bunch of times. They can be expensive but they have the parts you need. I'm puting together a double I just picked up and they had a decent deal on bunk brackets w/ swivel mounts.

xsock, how's the customer service and speed of shipping? Their prices on 13" radial tire/rim combos is about $20-30 cheaper than anything else I've found, so I'm considering buying from them.

David, here is another:
this place has fast shipping, and they call you if there is any issues, and they will upgrade the tire if they are out of stock on certain load rated tires...
Eastermarine is a good place, I`ve noticed that their prices have gone up a bit, and some prices are just rediculous, but there shipping is quick and i haven`t had any hassles buying from them...

I have a aluminum rim 13 inch and I'm using car tires. Its the same size as mini coopers in europe. 185/60/13 works perfect on my Triton Elite double trailer. I only had to shave a little off the fender edge for the width. Tires were like 40 bucks each.

Car tires are not made to deal with the same forces as trailer tires. There is a good post on this over in the trailer section, so I won't attempt to butcher it up.

I've done several hours of internet searching, and the link I posted above is still the cheapest price I've found on galvaninzed rims and radial tires - Goodyear, no less! Only $92 each. If I don't get a new trailer in the off season, I'm going to buy a pair of those.
