Any one replaced a Sietech set of tires with 145/70 6" tire . Our rim is steel marine bearings?
Sietech is not reliably in business.
https://www.westcoastsailing.net/default/boat-parts/transport/dollyparts.html will be happy to provide an alternative and new tires with rims. currently $75 each.
We are trying new tires from Amazon as not availabe locally and hope they work

I believe the newer-generation Seitech wheels were tubeless. You're going to have to set the bead in the rim. A lot of people use something slightly flammable like brake cleaner and setting it on fire. The sudden expansion helps set the bead. IF you go this route, look for some YouTube videos as guidance and be careful.
Remove the valve stem and only apply the brake cleaner to one side.
I used them on the dolly for my small sailboat. They are perfect to move on the beach. No need to worry about corrosion with salt water or lubrication for the bearings. They are light, maintenance free and cheaper than other plastic dolly wheels on the market. I'd recommend these to anyone.
