Tyres

Can anyone tell me where to buy tyres for my trailer?

It appears I have an odd size 4.80 x 12 and I cannot
find any locally.

I am in the Salisbury area and travel up the M3 daily to Heathrow.
Southampton is also nearby.

Thanks

Paul (Tufty)

Try contacting Indespension at Locks Heath (near Southampton, but they have other branches that may be nearer). Being a trailer manufacture/distributor they should be able to help I would have thought.

Failing that, TrailerGuy (Ben) or Michael of South Coast Trailers probably won't be too far behind me in posting!

You might find it more cost effective to just buy new wheels with tyres fitted, rather than pay to have them fitted to your old rims!

I just went through getting some small tyres. It was something of a choir to find radials, but I did. Had them shipped, and they were easy enough to install with a couple of giant screwdrivers, and just used a car to roll over them and break the bead.

4.80x12 is usually an American size. Or on chinese import trailers.

You should be able to replace these with a 145R12 tyre, which will be much more readily available, ergo cheaper!

Also, radial tyres give a smoother ride and are more forgiving on the bumpy stuff.

Make a call to a local tyre place, as they may have to order them in, being a smaller size.

All the best, Ben

The trailer is one of these that you helpfully identified is someone elses thread

It's an Indespension JS06 'vario', if that helps anyone.

Specification:
650Kgs G.V.W.
250Kgs Unladen Weight.
Carrying capacity 400Kgs.
Adjustable Length capacity of up to 4m.
Leaf spring suspension with 4.80 x 12 wheels & tyres.
Hot dipped galvanised steel.
Adjustable length drawbar.
Winch post inc snubber.
2 x width and height adjustable carpeted bunks

Do you know if Mini 12in wheels will fit as I need a rim for a spare and tyres?


Many Thanks

Paul (Tufty)

Afraid not. Minis are 4" (101.6mm) PCD on 4 x 3/8" studs. These will be 100mm PCD and I think 4 x M12, if I remember correctly.

ISWT060 is the part number for a spare wheel IIRC.
