    cheap 16" front wheels. Where to buy?

    I'd like to buy two 16" cheap (less than $100 total) front wheels for a bike trailer project. Where can I buy them?

    I'd prefer wheels with the narrow 74 mm OLD hubs that Dahons or Bromptons use, but I can't find them for sale anywhere online. Please help.

    Even better: are there any decent quality 12" inch wheels? I mean not just crap Walmart kid's bike wheels.

    305 and 349 are both a size of 16" wheel ..
    Dahon may be more likely using the former , ISO is Bead seat diameter ,
    [so bigger rim and thinner tire comes out similar OD].

    Jogging strollers and bike trailers for kids use the smaller rims.

    Try here: http://www.bikerev.com/pg1.cfm

    These are actual 12" trailer wheels, and if they come as they do on their trailers, they will have Big Apple tires on them.
