5.20 x 10 Tyres +/- Wheels - suggestions for cheap sources?

Anyone got any suggestions on where to go for cheap 5.20 x 10 Tyres.

Got a small box trailer that the tyres are looking decidedly ropey on and I figure I should do something about them.

Is there a good tyre dealer who does good prices? Hard to tell online as they don't let you search for odd tyres like this...

Or should I just be looking at a trailer place and probably get em with new wheels since my old wheels at the very least need a coat of paint too?

60 trailer off of ebay is starting to look like it may be expensive to tart up...

5 1/2pcd?
I'm in Durham. So not a million miles away from you but probably further than the fuel justifies?

I've found some on wheels for 40 a pop from trident-uk the dinghy people...

Look at Towsure - normally pretty cheap for standard stuff.

Indespension is very reasonable for parts incl rims and tyres. Good quality stuff too.

I'm guessing I'm not standard then! Cant see an 5.20 x 10. Could be that it has another name and I just don't know what I'm looking at...

Indespension and very reasonable were never words I thought I'd read together! But again they don't seem to list a 5.20

I'm assuming I can't just pop 5.00 x 10s on?

Thought I better work out what was going on with PCD being mentioned everywhere. I'm on 4 holes, and the distance between the holes is roughly 10cm.

So if yours are 5 1/2 then they wont fit.

Bit of digging and I found a towing site that seems to say 5.20 x 10 are discontinued. So to use 5.00 x 10.

There appear to be plenty of 5.00 x 10 wheels about with a PCD of 101.6mm which I guess could be what mine are. I'd assume mine are imperial measurement as they look like they probably came off a 1966 Mini!

Firstly welcome to Ribnet!

Two things

1- NEVER mix pcds - even if they "just" fit. The studs won't survive long when you start driving.

2 - if they are ex mini wheels most trailer places do parts. They certainly used to be a popular donor. Can kget dedicated hubs / axles for then.
