Tire source?

It's been three years since I posted here. Still using the trailer, although not as much as I had envisioned.

A tire on my 2009 17' went flat on WA 12, and I probably drove five or more miles on it. I'll take it to a local tire store in Tsawwassen. Any thoughts on what to expect? Where can I get a replacement?

We replaced both ours and new rims at Escape last year.Our trailer is a 2008 but bought used and had been across Canada---

The price with the rims wasn't a heck of a lot..

Funny I was just thinking about you the other day as you were looking at trailers when we picked ours up I think..

Check/replace those valve stems, too. We have an '09 19, had a stem let go in 2011 and lost the tire. When I had the trailer in later to convert to steel stems, a second rubber one let go just by the mechanic touching it. He said the great bulk of rubber stems at the time were made in China, and bad batches made it into the supply stream. I don't know if that's still a problem, though.
