Default Komet trailer replacement rim

Does anyone know where I might find a replacement rim for my Komet trailer
in
the USA?
The rim is a 4 1/2" J 13 H2.

Default Komet trailer replacement rim

When I screwed up my cobra 13" rim I took it to discount and they found me a replacement for around 70 bucks. it didnt match exactly so I put the new tire on the spare and used the new rim for a spare.

Dan,
I used an automotive cross reference in the past. Looked up car make and model. Pulled one out of a car trunk in a junk yard.
Good as new for $15

You might be able to find them with the spinners still on

See if this link helps:

Tried, they could find a replacement with the right size wheel.
The lug spacing is the problem,100 mm.
Wells suggested a a site that list a 91-97 Ford aspire as having the right
wheel
size and lug pattern.


Maybe try below?

It really is amazing how much the searches miss.
Might be the search terms used but, I did not find any of these options

Thanks Tom
