    Either Farm and Fleet or you can try Tractor Supply. They are usually about $75 each and they include the rim and the tire. That way you can use one of the old wheels as a spare if you don't have one. I had to do the same thing last year.

    Hope your not putting all of you quipment listed on the trailer, I bought a 7x12 last season and I wished I bought at least a 16' I have absolutly no room left. Seems a little pricy for me, I paid 1060.00 out the door for my 7x12 w/tax and title, brand new.

    Ya it may be a little pricey. But the steel prices have gone up so much. I called atleast 6 places and there 6x12 are all in the ball park of $1,400. And to top it all off, i was driving down the road today in town and saw a 14' with a box on front in great shape for $800!!!! :angry: :angry: :realmad: i guess theres just no winning around here! it always seems to end up that way but 24 hours later?! thats a little annoying. Not everything will go on there at once. But i agree a bigger one would be nice, but this will work just fine for now atleast.

    I hear ya sod, I have a great idea for open trailers if you were planning on putting a box on the front, and if you have to leave your equipment outside for any length of time. E mail me if interested. :waving:
