Northern Industrial Tools Tire on Spoked Ball Bearing Wheel - 16in.
Good wheels, but.....
Purchased a pair for a boat cart built to carry boats around / back up to top of a local man-made whitewater course. The wheels performed great - until the cart was picked up and blown by an exceptional storm event - with straight-line winds - that inflicted lots of damage to the area. On landing, the wheels experienced severe lateral forces and were destroyed (see image).
For reasonable use on hard surface or grass these wheels are great, but the buyer should understand that the spokes are U-shaped, and attached to the hub with a piece of folded-over sheet metal (each spoke not individually attached to the hub).
Am now repairing/rebuilding the damaged cart, and have ordered different wheels (item 106082) in the hopes that an incremental cost per wheel will provide an added measure of durability when exposed to strong/extreme lateral forces.

Replacement Wheels For Garden Cart
I have been searching for replacement spoked wheels for our 30 year old Town & Country Garden Cart for at least a year without any success.. The old rubber tires had begun to crack due to ageing, but was otherwise in good condition.
I finally found an exact replacement in your catalog and purchase a set of two. Now, our trusty cart should last another 30 years!

Two wheels were used on my food smoker. I was tired of legs falling off so I replaced the back ones with the wheels. Not only is the smoker steady but I can take it over uneven ground with ease. I do not have to worry about the wheels going flat as they are solid.

Brought this item to bring a old time look to a oak cotton candy cart & a oak pretzel cart I was making. great value & an outstanding size selection. The axle size isjust right for the weight limit & easily found.

Replacement wheels for my lawn cart.
Purchases 2 of the 16 inch wheels to replace the worn out wheels on my lawn cart. It only took a few minutes to replace the wheels. Since I haul a lot of heavy items in the cart and use it for mixing cement, the replacement wheels have held up fine. I would not hesitate to purchase these replacement wheel again. It was certainly less expensive than buying a new cart.

Spoked Bal Bearing wheel
This has got to be one of the good things in life. First of all to be able to buy these then to have them made so Good. The metal parts are plated with a heavy lasting plating, snd the rubber is nice and hard and durable. I have made 2 Carry Karts with axels and Wheels and will make another soon. If these were not avail the finished product would look and ride like Good. A Great Buy with Super Fast Shipping and service.

I had two of these on my gun cart. In less than a dozen trips to the range the rubber tires began to fall apart. Ordered two new wheels. This time the tires only lasted 5 trips to the range before they began to split and crack. The rims are great---the rubber tires are a joke.

Do not buy
I used two of these on a hand cart that I modified to carry a plastic trash can and rifle. I use the cart for high power shooting (shooting jacket, ammo, scope & stand, small cooler) and used it at Camp Perry this year. After 4 days with 4 trips to the ranges with less than 100 lb. the rubber came off one wheel and is ready to come off the other wheel. I rolled the hand cart over pavement, packed dirt road, and pasture type grass field. I was the only one who used it and I know that it was not exposed to any extreme use as the load and surfaces were not unusual. I will be returning the wheels and have confidence that Northern Tool will refund my money.
