Bargain wheels & tyres!

Post by fibreglasshero » Fri, 16 Apr 2010, 6:15 pm

Hi Guys & Girls,
You may have missed it, but I've posted in the 'Parts & Accessories Found' section, as to how we managed to purchase two silver enamelled steel wheels ( 3.50B x 10H2 ), plus new Marshall 145/80R10 four ply steel belted radial tyres for the total sum of £72-00 vat included. An absolute bargain, when you consider our local tyre depot quoted us in excess of £100-00.
If you dare to mention 10" tyres, it's a case of tooth sucking & head shaking, and mumbled conversations about 'specialist stuff, vintage vehicles only!
We decided on the retailer simply because it was local to us (Norfolk), and for your information it is: Freewheel UK Ltd, Cornish Way, North Walsham, Norfolk, NR28 0AW http://www.freewheeluk.net , or 01692 500300. Give them a try for anything related to trailer spares, They are friendly, knowledgeable, and cheap, what more could you want!
Best wishes to all.
Rob (aka Fibreglass Hero)
So many repairs, so little time!

A good price.

Thinking laterally (quite legal, even for boring olde f**rts like me), 10" mini wheels were more than a bit popular on trailers. A surf of some of the trailer parts websites suggests that they are still rather popular and new 10" after-market steel wheels, with a 23mm offset, are readily available, with/without tyres for roughly the same price. Being produced for trailers there is no provision in the centre pressing for a hub-cap of course.
