AFAIK the standard 4 Lug trailer wheel will fit , It can be found at any big box hardware store or trailer sales place. anyone know better??

I was buying some new tires for my Burro last weekend, (it's a long story, no spare) and Les Schwab says the Burro wheels are 4 X 100. That's partially why I didn't have a spare. They can order new aluminum wheels for $85 a piece. I'm looking for a spare wheel myself.

So Burro are not 4 on 4, but 4 on 100. I can now look for a car rim that I can add a baby moon hub cap to.
A lot of American and import cars have 4 on 100 bolt patterns. Thanks for the help.

1) Please tone down your type size and colors, they are difficult to read.

2) 4" = 101.60 mm or about 5/64" or .078" larger than 100 mm. Most 4 on 4" and 4 on 100mm wheels interchange

I don't. I need my glasses.
Surprisingly your larger fonts and colours were much harder to read both with and without my glasses.

Maybe Willard needs to have the resolution and/or color balance adjusted on his computer...

I found two Chevy Vega rims that will work on my Burro. But I'm holding out for a set of burro rims.I will check on resolution and color balance on my computer.

Way to go Willard! How does that saying go, a rim in the hand is worth two in the bush? Sorry that was a bird, got my rims and wrens mixed up.
