I need a spare tire for a highland hobie 16 trailer. I need the size of the tire and rim and a place to buy one.

You need to know if it is a four or five bolt hub too.
I made that mistake once.

NorthernTools.com has a good selection and I've had good service from them. Walmart sells the most popular sizes for good prices. Sears too.

I think they will be 4-hole x 4" spacing. Tire size is 4.80 x 8. I bought mine at Wal-Mart for about $56 for wheels with tires mounted.

i have found that no matter how simple the act of getting tires seems to be you can never do it in one trip, i have tried many times but the most efficient way i have found is to take the old wheel with you and go to a local shop to get the tire and get it mounted this way if it is wrong you have someone besides yourself to blame. now is a good time to repack your bearings too.
