Northern tool is now offering in my email a 16 x 6.50 x 8 Wheel AND tire combo with a 2 ply tire, 3/4" bore, no bearings and a keyway in it also. Offset 3.5" it says for ONLY $5!!   I'm sure Chinese.  I didn't check on shipping. I didn't like the non-bearing part of it, but if you needed some and didnt wanna spend much, wonder if worth the time??

If it's got a keyway it's probably supposed to turn with the axle and so wouldn't need a bearing.

 

They should have at least given you an item number.  Cut and paste so we can see what they're peddling.

If you keep it greased no bearing won't hurt. Can drill it and put a bushing in it too

HF has similar wheels with tires.  Only issue I have had with the Chinese tires and tubes from them is they don't hold air.  Have a welding cart with 2 20 bicycle wheels and tires.  Have them both full of slime and have give them a shot of air every month or so.  Never see and sign of where they leak.  Couple on a 2 wheel dolly the same way but they are tubeless.  Air just seems to escape from them.

I gave it a try with save and paste, but don't get it.  Couple things said SAVE and clicked, but one just wanted to go to Facebook, would be lost there, so no go. Think the site is www.agrisupply.com or close.

I really like some of Agrisupply's prices.  Shipping can be a problem though if you don't have a local store (and I don't).
