Default Yerf Dog Tire/Wheel

I have a yerf-dog 3020. For some reason one of my tires went flat, i pumped it up and the next day it was flat again. I read on the tire, it doesn't have the dimensions on it for some reason so i measured it, its about 13"x 4.5 (or 5"). also it says its tubeless to would i have to get a brand new tire? And ive been looking everywhere for a new tire/wheel but cant seem to find one. Where can i get one?

A tubeless tyre means that it can be inflated without the need for a tube, it doesn't mean it can't be used with a tube. If you want to spend the money on a new tyre, go for it otherwise, whack a tube in there & off you go.

As for sizing the tyre, the best idea is to take it to a tyre shop & get them to match it

I found a tube for it for 10$ and i found the same exact wheel for 25$ and its the entire wheel not just the tire or the hub. Which would be worth it? The tread on my current tire is like 50/50

That is your decision. It might be nice to have an extra rim if you ever need one

Please post a picture... likely you only need a tire. I am willing to guess I can tell you the tire size with good pictures.

The problem with buying one is, if it's not 100% identical to the original, you may have problems. If you get a new wheel assembly, you'll need two

No im sure it is the exact one, there was some weird code on the tire and the brand was DURO so i searched it and it brought up a link to a website for go kart tires and sure enough, its the same exact measurements as i had.
