I try to buy everything online. B&M stores just cant beat the prices I can get online.
I just had to replace a tire and no one came close to the price I got online. And yes I added the cost of mounting. Remember the B&M stores charge for mounting too. Free shipping is all over the net now a days. If you know the size and brand you want it is only a 10 min search for the best price online! I plan on buying new wheels and tires for our Boler this year so mounting wont be a problem.

Keep your eye out on the sales. You will frequently find tires already mounted on rims for less than the cost of tires alone.

I don't know, Roy. The trailer came with these pretty snazzy alloys.

Actually, I prefer steel wheels as the alloys seem to develop slow leaks over time. I'm after Carlisle Radials. Nobody seems to offer them mounted. The only mounted tires I have found were brands I was not familiar with. But I'm still looking.

Princess Auto sells Carlisle tires already mounted. When on sale, they are quite a good deal.

I don't know what kind of tires you are looking for but I've noticed that Amazon is offering a lot of tires now with free shipping, including many ST tires like the Maxxis M8008. Might be worth a look.

Discount Tire sells Carlisle radials....in stores and online. Several years ago I purchased a set of 4 at their store in Albuquerque for our prior stickbuilt.....and just got 2 (with shipping included) for the Casita online last year. Their price...even with local install, was excellent.

Costco's are all different in regards to what they carry - not uncommon to walk into one Costco and see an item that isn't carried at one 200 miles away - especially true with Costco US vs Canadian.

PM sent,
The link at the bottom will expire in a while, but for those looking in Southern Ontario. Search www.toronto.kijiji.ca for Clentec. His operation is out of the London area but he uses a storage facility in Toronto to hold some of his stock, delivery is usually included. (If you fit into one of his delivery runs)
$199 + tax for 205/75R14 Goodyear Marathons on Al rims.
I've bought from him before. Just noticed he now even gets torflex axles.
He runs off a cell phone, best to leave a message. He returns the calls.

NEW - ST 205/75 R14 - GOOD YEAR RADIAL / ALUMINUM RIMS - CLENTEC - Mississauga / Peel Region Parts, Accessories For Sale - Kijiji Mississauga / Peel Region Canada.

Just to follow up... The choice came down to 3 companies: Discount Tire, Tread Depot, and Amazon. While Tread Depot was the lowest, I bought from Amazon. The tires arrived yesterday. ST175/80/R13. $77 each delivered. Made in China the third week of August 2013. I'll have them mounted when the trailer appears out from under the snow . Thanks all. Raz

trailer-wheels.com (Shadow Trailer) sells Carlisle, mounted on the wheels of your choice if you like, balanced if you so choose. The last time I bought Carlisle Radial Tracks from them they had been manufactured approximately 10 weeks earlier. Free shipping.

My dad's old trailer had been sitting in the carport for over 15 years, so I knew I had to replace the tires before attempting to get it back on the road. The old tires were A 78-13, but I found it cheaper to just buy a new tire/rim online and have it shipped for free right to my door. For some reason the new combo is a bit higher than the old one, but it keeps the trailer from looking so down trodden. Now it looks 20 years younger and seems to stand up straighter! The only downside is that the company does not wrap their wheels in any protective coating, so one of the rims arrived with some scuff marks. I contacted the company when I ordered my second tire, and asked them to at least cover the rim with some packing tape to protect the paint finish. I never heard back from them, so I'll see how it looks when it arrives this Friday. 13" Bias Trailer Tire & Wheel Assembly Premounted - Ships Free - HitchAnything.com

Looking good for sure!!! Wish I had a set of those rims for our Airstream.
