Don't know about exact replacement, but Northern Tool handles lots of trailer wheels, and I know they have 13", four lug. Now if they are the same bolt pattern, I don't know, but on a four lug, it's easy to measure.

And, welcome to the forum, DebraL.

I had a hard time finding regular OEM type wheels for my '56. I called Dexstar in Elkhart IN. and they will answer all your questions and get you hooked up with a distributor for purchase.

Welcome to the forums and congrats on your wonderful Bambi! Great responses so far on wheels for you! Hope you can work something out! You might want to plan (before too many miles...) to see about a new axle... the original one is likely worn out. They are fairly easy to replace and depending on which brand you choose they are a good investment. A worn axle will make your trailer shake while traveling and rivits will pop out... things will just jiggle a lot. Lots of threads and info on axles, just use the search box and you will have enough reading for a week!

In case you are going to do work on your Bambi, you might take a look at my husband's thread. He did a frame off on our 1963 Bambi and has lots of pictures and how-to's. Some differences in the 62 and 63, but not huge other than the basic layout perhaps.

Post pictures, we love pictures here! Bambi's are sweet!

Have fun! We think our Bambi is perfect!
