Need new 12" wheels and tires?

Occasionally someone posts a good deal available for a limited time... like this:
ST145/R12 Trailer Tire Assembly for $99.99 from July 23 - July 28 in this week's sale flyer (page 14).

These are 145R12 C tires for trailer service only, the smallest size in Carlisle's Radial Trail RH series, with a steel wheel included. They are incorrectly listed as "ST145/R12" in the ad, and also incorrectly listed as "ST145/12" in Carlisle's online listing. The sticker I saw on these in the store was even worse, showing them as ST145/75R12, I think... but the sidewall clearly shows that they are 145R12 C (commercial), Load Range D.

These may only be a good deal if you need wheels, and are buying in Canada.

I realize that few of our trailers use 12" wheels, but if you have a Fiber Stream, for instance, these are a good upgrade from old-style 5.20-12 tires, or even 4.80-12 if you don't mind the extra inch of overall diameter.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

They are fairly close to the original 6.00 - 13 on many of our trailers. I put them on my boler American. I show a pic of the comparative difference in sizes here:
