Locating trailer tires 12 - 16.5

I have googled and called many tire shops but no luck locating any so ... can anyone point me in a direction of getting some. Also looking for rims that go with them to use as spares

Thumbs up tars

I have ONE good, slightly used, 12-16.5 trailer tire on HD steel wheel (flat plate center), hub piloted @ $50.00, also have two, 9.75wide 16.5 wheels ONLY, with the Ford (larger) center hole. Wheels more like pickup style wheels (stamped center). $40.00/pr.
Central Iowa (few miles north of Des Moines).

imo, i think its best to switch over to another wheel size. the next time you buy it will be cheaper and easier to find. a few month ago i was looking for some 9.50-16.5 tires. many places didn't carry them and the few places that carried them were expensive. about 200 a piece after tax and every thing. it cost about the same to buy a set of 4 wheels and tires in a 16" wheel size. just my opinion.

wheels

man go to amaricastire.com You can pick up steel wheels on the cheap, get a white spoke wagon wheel for around $50 apiece and go to just about any tire shop and find used uh say 235/85 r 16 10 ply load range "e" tire for anothe probably $40 mounted and you will be set up for life. these can be found any where in the world if you have an issue with one. Just check the dates on the used tires no more than 6 yrs old

I thought about going to the junk yard and picking up a couple of sets of dualley wheels and going that route. Anyone done it? I am the king of overkill so as long as the rims dont push the tires into the springs I cant think of anything it would hurt.

You can convert to 215/75R17.5 in an 8 lug wheel and move up in load carry capacity and availability.
