Now finding a 16" six lug trailer rim could be a real chore. Never have tried it (did get the aluminum ones for my fiver though).

Go here for a very nice wheel.

Missing a critical word from my sentence -- "steel". Finding 16" six lug steel rims could be a real chore. The aluminum ones are, as Barney shows, easy. I could provide three or four other sites with some similarly nice wheels and good deals (I'm sure Barney has a list longer than mine).

Will go back and add the missing word to my post.

Good deal on that galvanized rim Barney. That should give the OP a pretty good idea.

Is the shipping container on the frame yet? How do you lift that thing at home? Or are you one of these guys that happens to have their own crane sitting around the yard?

Ah . . . a man with a can do attitude that can think outside of the box. That's the sort of thing that makes us physicists smile and makes America great.
