Where would you shop for trailer wheels?

I have a 6x12 single axle trailer. had it since 98. Planning a long road trip and looking at the tire tread tonight, and lugs as I was thinking of getting a spare for this trip, and I notice the rims are rusted BAD. I'm going to have to replace both of them. :pat: An expense I didn't plan on but for safety's sake, I gots to do it.

A little late to this party, but if you have a Rural King near you I found that they have a bit better pricing on them than tractor supply. Just as an example, TSC has a wheel and tire to fit my utility trailer 205/75D15 for $125 - some off brand (OK, actually it is the brand that is on my trailer, but don't get me started on that) Rural King has 205/75R15 made by Carlisle for $115 - at least last time I checked. I know Carlisle aren't the greatest tires in the world, but they are head and shoulders above the brand that is currently on my trailer.

I checked tractor supply and they had the exact wheel that came on my trailer. But, even better, a local discount tire place had both the wheel and tires for the trailer so I pulled it up there and had it done in no time. It was $325 er so for two wheels and tires. Not bad at all. I've since pulled the trailer to Mobile Alabama, picked up a 2000 lb Kubota RTV 900 and pulled it all back home with no issues. Gas mileage on the trip home left a lot to be desired but the trailer and tires did a fine job for me.

Thanks for the input guys!!!!!!!!

We did not have a Rural King when I wrote posted above but one just opened here a couple months ago. Very nice. They have it all. Now Tractor supply has a little competition. :D That's good for all shoppers.
