    What are some good, reasonably priced tire carts and where to get them?

    Every time I'm packing rims and tires back and forth at the track, i swear I'm gonna buy a tire cart but never do.

    Sam's Club used to carry a Fold-it replica that was like $60 for a while. Don't know if you can still find them though. Most of the online places that carry the Tipke/Fold-it marine utility carts hover around the $200-225 price range from what I've seen.

    I was at a West Marine and they had a dock cart, same as a fold up tire cart. Can't remember the price though.

    That reminds me that I need to finish up my surfcasting cart. Been slacking.

    Thanks all. I was hoping for a cheaper alternative. Those are expensive for a glorified radio flyer wagon.

    I bought a folding one from walmart for $50. Its canvas like not metal sides/floors, but does the job.

    What Eddie said. I bought three of the Sam's Club brand of the FoldIt carts when they clearances them out. Only 1 is still operable. The FoldIt brands can withstand the abuse, the others flat get destroyed.

    So the Sam's carts weren't actual FoldIt? I remember kicking myself for not buying one the only time I saw them in there.

    No they weren't. Not even in the same ballpark quality wise. I mean, does it work, yeah. But if the FoldIt is a 10 out of 10. The Sam's Club cart is probably a 6.

    that seems to be their typical thing. I think the only thing worthy Ive ever gotten from there was my ezups.
    On the cart thing... I have a heavy canvas folding cart that has worked pretty well and holds 2 sets of wheels w/o issues.
    Also it looks nothing like the 20+ other carts parked at the tire vendor...lol :D

    I have a lot of luck with Sams. We shop there quite a bit and so far it's been great for us. Their hard goods aren't usually the cheap quality of Wal Mart. My generator came from Sams and it's been awesome. No complaints at all.
     
  18. My Tipke cart is going on 20 years - the last 15 in the yard. I had it loaded with 30 lb rocks last month working on a drain. Engines, dirt, gravel, kids. If a tree fell on it and finally killed it - I'd buy another.

    bicycle trailers on craigslist go for $50-$75 all the time. They're already set up to be towed by a (pit) bike, and mine is rated to hold 100 lbs. of toddler. They also fold up for transport.
