I just got one this week from Eastern Marine. Good prices on a tire and rim.

Of course, you'll need to know what size you need.

Therer was a tire place that bought all the new old stock MC aluminum wheels a few years ago, 14" and 15". When I bought mine a year ago or so (14") he was almost out of the 14" ones, but had the 15's....and cheap too. I payed less than $150 shipped for a MC aluminum wheel and tire. Do a search on the trailer forum maybe, I know it was posted here somewhere.

I have one that I bought in 07 and never used it. I paid $380 from the dealer. I'm shocked that you can buy one with a tire for $150. I'd sell it, but not for $150. For that much I'd keep it for a spare for my spare on my 08 trailer.

There is a big difference between current dealer pricing and clearance on seconds.

You could always get a cheap steel rim/tire and slap a $30 MC tire cover over it for appearance sake. That's what I was going to do until I found a deal on the OE rim.

That's the one! Those are a steal of a deal.

Looks like they have the 14" ones again too?

Edit: The 14" wheels aren't MC and the 15" ones show a ploished (chrome look) MC wheel when you enlarge the pic. Make sure thery're what you want.
