20 + a tyre x4 soon adds up. is that a 13"?? best price i found so far is 25 each for just wheel plus postage, seems pointless putting new ones on when one dunk and a sit in the salty wind and they will soon be well on there way to that great rust bucket in the sky again!!

I put two new wheels on my rib trailer, wheel and tyre was just over 25 each if I recall. I doubt that they were 13", probably 10" or 11", cheapest place is the boat jumble, you can get 2 of the ones I bought for 25. The centres to tend rust, had one collapse on a day boat we had so for the sake of 50 I put two new ones on the rib, washed them with freshwater after each use, to try and prevent the rust.

Ah looks like I had the wrong wheels all together, good job theres no red blobs anymore!
When I had abit of an 'off' in the car last year I had to get some parts from the scrap yard, including a steel wheel. They had a massive mountain of wheels and it would be quite easy to find four matching ones all though you would have to get the right dimensions etc, most of the tyres were legal, although it would be possible to stick some cheapo ones on there. Although Petes ebay source looks cheap, and thats for new rims.

Try TrailerTek in Micheldever Staton (off old road between Winchester and Basingstoke)
Rims only
Rims and tyres

They have workshop facilities there as well. Also stock boat trailer parts (rollers etc).

make sure you buy the proper tyres with the correct ply rating as the trailer tyres are potentially different to car tyres in this respect
