Northern Industrial Tools Tire/Wheel - 26in., Spoked
Duarable and hard to find
These wheels are really hard to find for such a popular size and for industrial uses. This particular tire i have had very good luck with. I have bought 7-8 of these now and only had one where the spokes came loose which was ultimately a result of my "testing out the wheel" and putting too much weight on it. This is the best wheel you can find for you outdoor, industrial, and home project uses.

Best Cart Wheels for the Money
Needing new tires for my cart, which had badly rusted wheels, I chose to replace both with these as the price was not that much greater than tires and tubes alone. It was quite easy to replace the old wheels by simply removing cotter pins and exchanging wheels. Now I have a like new cart that rolls and works like new !

These tires are rock solid
I used four of these tires on a kinetic sculpture that our school built. They served us well over 42 miles of pavement, sand, and bay. They took a hammering. Our sculpture weighed 600lbs with both drivers, their camping gear, art, and pontoons. About two thirds of the way through the race, we got a flat. It turns out that bike tubes are too small to work on these tires, so we ran flat for 5 miles of pavement. These tires are the best we have used. They are used by many racers besides us. The bearings can be found at any hardware store and the tires can really take a beating. In the end, we raised a bunch of money for charity and we'll be coming back for more tires.

Perfect for Soap Box Racing!
Bought these for a crazy soapbox race where I built a rolling mashtun that had to make it over a 16 inch jump. All 350lbs of myself and the cart made it over the jump at nearly 30 mph because of these wheels. I did change out the tubes and tires for speed. Added some high pressure tubes and slick tires to improve rolling resistance. Check out the pic to see it in action. We ended up winning the race and I owe it all these wheels!

I have a garden cart I made long ago and put bicycle wheels on it. The wheels eventually warped and wobbled. I ordered two of these, bought some 3/4" threaded rod and put these on. This cart is large and heavy. It hauls rocks and dirt. Takes the place of my wheel barrow. These wheels are very well made and very rugged. The spokes are thick. It looks like a bike wheel but when you see it you would never use it on a bike. No Issues. They roll and take the load and do the job. Very satisfied with them.

26" Spoked Wheel Worked Perfectly
My wife purchased a garden cart from years ago. The wheels are made in China and the tires are impossible to find replacements for. I finally gave up and purchases a set of these 26" spoked wheels. These are heavy duty rims with what I would call real tires and tubes, with the ability to replace without having to hunt. For those with the same type of garden cart the only catch you will have to work with is to make sure you have a true 3/4" axle. The axle on the cart we have is metric so it just took some sanding to get it down to the correct diameter, which wasn't a big deal. The hubs on these wheels are also slightly wider, which is a nice thing to add to the stability but one thing to look at when taking measurements. My overall axle width (or length) did not have to be changed. I received the wheels within a week without issue. They are packaged without being inflated, which is what I expected. As these are fairly wide rims, when first inflating, make sure that you get the valve stem straight and help the tire to seat on the rim or you will get a bulge and need to deflate the tube and start again. This is nothing that you shouldn't be aware of on any other tire/tube. Very nice rims, my wife is very pleased to have her cart back together.

GREAT DEAL FOR A TIRE & RIM
I purchased four wheels for a buggie i'm building. I have tested them and they have worked out just fine. For the quilty and price you can't go wrong. Great product.
