Thanks for the help TG, I will take the spare wheel down to Indespension in Manchester they should be able to go off that.

Good idea Mick

Well, cos I'm suuuuuuch a nice bloke, I've just dug out my Indespension manual.

According to their specs the RC1UB is fitted with a SB036 axle and therefore HU031 hubs and WT008 wheels.

The spec on HU031 hubs: 4 x M12 on 100mm PCD
The spec on WT008 wheels: 145R12 4 x M12 on 100mm PCD

So, looks like you're in luck, I'd say. There's loads of 13" wheels available with 100mm PCDs, due to the caravan industry (very common on Alko running gear).

Give them a call on Monday, to confirm I'm not talking a load of arse and then get shopping

I bought a pair of galvanised wheels home from the US, before I left I took a wheel off the trailer and put a piece of card underneath the wheel holes and drew the exact pattern, I then took the card with me and matched the card to the correct wheel once in the trailer shop.

Galv. wheels are the best, why are they not available here????

Yep will do TG, like I said, I will take my spare wheel with me when I call at Indespenion Manchester. If all okay 3 x 12" wheels will be up in the for sale section soon, one unused.

Fine if you can get the galvaniser to guarantee the wheel will be dipped while horizontal

And I wanted 8-Spokes

Here they are after I etched them, painted them and had tyres fitted to them.

Small part to get too excited about but I bl**dy hate rusty bits on my rig and this seamed to be a way to sort that bit for good.

They look lovely Ribtecer but how did you manage to fit them in your suitcase and get them through customs
