    I wouldn't round that tire around the yard, go buy some used tires to get you by for now. And those are bearing buddys, you pump grease into them until grease comes out the little hole in front.

    Those look like the size tires on my small trailer. I had one a year old with less than 1000 miles come apart on me. Luckily no causulties. Don't laugh, but look at Wal-mart for that tire/wheel combo. It should be cheaper.
