Working on it

New old wheels

The trailer-tent chassis came with only two wheels (ie. no spare) and the tyres are in poor shape - they are both badly cracked due to age. Not much of a surprise really, but I was a little irritated that the eBay seller claimed they "look fine" considering I had to tow the thing home on them and I didn't have a spare if one of them failed. I set out yesterday to find either one wheel of exactly the same size and type to use as the spare (I knew this was unlikely) or a matching set of three that fit the hubs on the axle. Collapse )
