Basically anything that will fit the bolt pattern, zero offset (typical for Scamps) and are the right size wheel.

I had mine made at Stockton wheel... don't ask me what it cost... it was outragous, but it was important to me Can't take it with you!!!!

Check out Eastern Marine in De. They have a fairly good selection at reasonable prices. Your bolt pattern for a 13 Scamp will be 4X4 or 5X4.5 .

Looks like they only have 13 in. aluminum wheels in 5x4.5 now.

As they say.. by the way (BTW) are you looking to "add" hub caps? Pay attention if the wheels have "innies" or "outies" makes a really big difference when buy "moonies."

What bolt pattern, what size tires? Steel? Aluminum?

I accidentally (luckily) found out Ultra made trailer wheels that matched my pickup wheels. Easy choice.

We used trim rings and hubcaps on the stock wheels.

Google the wheel size and bolt pattern you have or want and add "image" you will get about a gazillion choices to weed through. But read carefully, not all will fit your trailer.

For example: "13 inch 4x100 wheels" returned more images than I could count....

Any real auto parts store will have studs to replace those bolts, which would then allow the use of chrome lugnuts.
OR... You could replace those bearing buddies with standard dust caps and fit an automotive hub cap or wheel cover.
If you like the bearing buddies then you could use a wheel cover and cut a hole in the center.
I put some old Ansen Sprints from a Pinto on my Lovebug, they need to be nearly zero offset though....click on the picture for a better look.

I expect so... that was a very common pattern for small cars (with high offset). If the trailer has 4-bolt hubs they're likely 4x4.00", zero or 1/2" offset.

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

As Brian pointed out, 4 on 4" is not 4 on 100.

While 100mm doesn't exactly equal 4" it seems that they interchange both terms for the same wheels. But you can also google "13" 4 on 4" wheels" and get about the same images.

If you want to run wobble bolts and a hub centric spacer.
