We do offer some items that might work. The first part you will need is the BT8 Spindle for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles - 1-1/4" Diameter, part # TRU94FR. This would be welded to your square tubing, you would need to make sure that is welded flush. Next, you would need the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 2K Axles - 7" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 - L44643 - Pre-Greased, part # AKHD-545-2-1K. This hub will come with packed bearings and you can bolt it onto the spindle. Now you can pick a tire/wheel combination. The Kenda Loadstar 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 - Load Range C, part # AM30820, is a 12" trailer wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. I do understand this a robust solution for a trailer that weighs around 350 lbs, but this spec is the lowest weight we offer on our website.

I have included product description links and video demo links below.
