"Northern Industrial Tools Tire, 10in. x 4in."
Not a good choice for hand trucks...
Was moving 24 pack cases of beer, water and sodas stacked 7 high = 140 lb load. I had a few steps in my path which is probably what caused the bearings to give on both wheels - the rims are simply too thin. I can't recommend this item for that purpose but they seem to work on a lighter load such as my 4-wheeled hose-reel cart.
Thanks to Northern for crediting my account and not having to go through the hassle of shipping them back.
Oh, one more thing. THEY STINK REALLY BAD!!!! Don't leave them inside your house or garage unless you want it to smell like a rubber glue factory.

Tubes split over the winter
Bought two of the tires and rims for a hand truck late last summer. Tires seemed to be made from plastic rather then rubber, but the price was very reasonable. Used them a couple of times before putting hand truck away for winter. When I brought it out this spring, tires were cracked and tubes were flat and wouldn't hold air. Called customer service and a new set is on the way. Hope these last longer.

OK tire for price
Bought 4 of these, 2 for hand truck, 2 for small lawnmower trailer. Tires arrived promptly but 3 of the 4 the bolts came out of the hubs.not put together tight enough. They worked fine for my purpose. T he "rubber" appears like plastic. But they are what they are a cheap tire but they do the job.

Good tire at a good price
I bought this to replace the tire on my 21 year old hand truck. It was a perfect fit and very well made, plus a very good price. Now both hand truck tires have been replaced with these and they are better than the originals.

This wheel was the base for a canoe carrier-great price and suits the job.

Not a Second Thought
Both wheel and tire are of superior quality compared to the original combination that came on my 2-wheel hand cart. Installation was easy - be sure to save the axle caps that retain the wheels. Also, keep an eye on sale prices as it will pay to wait!

I have been dealing with Northern for the last 30 years, ever since the company was started. I have always been pleased with the products and service. This wheel is a great buy for the money!

good solid wheel
We use these wheels on our pasture gates. Our gates are expanded metal and are quite heavy. The wheel allows the gate to open smoothly. Depending on the time of the year, we can adjust the amount of air in the tire to suit the ground conditions.
