I just bought a tea cart. I need to replace the rubber around the wheels. I have found the large rubber replacements for the 14 inch wheels on line. I cannot find the small rubber replacements for the small wheels anywhere. Does any one know where I can get these?

I need the entire smaller wooden wheel for my teacart. It is approx. 4 1/2 in diameter. All wood with a rubber ring. Let me know if you have one or know where I can find one. Thanks.
I'm actually looking for the 14" replacement. I can't seem to find them. Can you point me a the 14" ones you found?
This is very nice and really appreciating it.
Can you tell me where you found the large rubber replacements you mentioned? Thank you.

I need a rubber replacement for a 13 inch diameter wheel on a tea cart. What is the cost? Thanks
It will be approximately $13 to replace the rubber for the wheel.
You can also obtain a sample pack of the rubber material here, so you're able to see exactly what you're ordering:
You may not be able to get just one. It can't cost more than $20.
I found a company that sells 13 inch
starting at $20 -www.zoro.com/
The cost will probably be between $10 to $15 (plus shipping?).
Do you know the size of the rubber?
This company offers a free kit of different sizes so you can be sure to order the correct size.
This looks like a good company to check into.
They also offer instructions:
I found Replacement Tea Cart or Tea Trolley Wheel Rubber DIY Kit:
It includes replacement rubber material for wheels of vintage tea carts and bar carts.
'Black needs to be glued to a ring. You can use any superglue (Cyanoacrylate) to glue the ring.
White needs to be melt together. You can use a cutter blade, heat it up and slightly melt the white material from both sides. Then pull away the cutter blade between the material and push together.'
You can remake tires with a solid rubber used to make bungee cord, sold at many hardware stores.
Cut a good tight fit then put the two ends together with the very fast and viscous super glue, but wear gloves. Do as in this post "How to Reinstall Tea Cart Wheel Rubber" (but use bungee cord's rubber)
The new tire will pop on the rim snugly for a stretch tight fit.
I need to find a replacement wooden wheel for my tea cart. It's 14 inches tall, has 8 spokes, and has the rubber on it. Does anyone know where I could find one? Thanks.
There is a site called freecycle.org where people ask for items they need and give away stuff they don't need. It's free, check it out. I just posted a bathroom vanity and sink, because we have put in a new one.
Keep checking flea markets, antique malls, garage sales, Good Will...all those usual places. Sooner or later one should turn up. If you don't see one at any of these places, talk to whomever is running it or in charge of the front desk. If they don't have one in their business, usually they can put you on a track toward other possibilities, or even know someone who has one.
