    i have those wheels on my 20'. there called california wheels. i paid $78 per tire at johnsons. six robblees or trailercraft should have replacement hubs to convert them to standard wheels if you know the spindle size. there common on heavier the normal load trailers like heavy equipment trailers.

    Those look like Trailer house wheels.
    Typically 6000lb axles , the tires are sometimes marked , NOT FOR HIGHWAY USE, some axles have electric breaks some don't.
    When used to move a trailer house [ the axles ] they are only used one time [ for the move ] then should be rebuilt because of the abuse they go though moving a monster load.

    You will have to read through this older link but it may answer some of your questions....

    Mobile home trailer axle and wheel and tire. Find someone who handles mobile home tires up there. They are few and far between in the lower 48.

    If you can't find up there ebay has them.

    Above posts are correct in identifying those. In the long run you would be better off replacing all of them with standard wheels and tires if you have any intentions of doing any sort of real travel with that trailer. Those are also notoriously difficult to balance.

    All i know about those tires & wheels is that i watched one come off my buddies trailer and roll off into the ditch when i was a pilot car for him. Never have heard much good about them and yes they are hard to find. Maybe call the outfit that made the trailer??

    Those do look like trailer house tires. They are generally not very good tires intended for limited use. However if you are looking for tires ask your tire dealer for lowboy trailer tires of the same size, these are the standard for lowboy equipment trailers and they are good heavy duty tires built to last with heavy loads.
