Good Luck!
All the best. Rich
I seem to recall seeing something about them. I'll have to look them up and see if they have a website. Also seems to me they are in the Midwest as I recall. Not that I am right now but they are I think. Just in case, are there any other places like that who specialize in RV's? You would think those wheels shouldn't be that hard to locate used or that someone would be doing reproductions of them. Thanks for the heads up on this one. I'll see if they have any.
Thanks for the post.
Stay safe out there...
Ken

CoLaws haven't got any. They say they get them from time to time and to keep checking back with them. I've been checking back for months with no success.

I know they are an unusual size and not made in large quantities when they were in production. Makes them a bit more of challenge to find now but I persist. It's certainly not a need or anything like that, just a quest for shiney things..... I don't know, maybe I'm easily distracted by shiney objects. Could be on to something there.. Who knows?
I'll keep looking and appreciate any tips or advice from the crowd. As I have said before, I don't have an AS yet but one day maybe I'll find the one I want. This forum is still a great source of info on restoration and maintenance even for SOB owners like me.....
Stay safe out there....
Ken

I found my alloys on eBay. The guy said he took them off of a Winnebago that he salvaged. You might keep an eye on this outfit Rickson Wheel Manufacturing They seem to do a short run from time to time. They had them listed several months ago but now I see they show "Coming Soon."

I had looked there quite some time back and hadn't seen anything on there. Have to admit to being a dinosaur and not being a computer guy at all so I probably don't watch or check as much as I should when looking for something specific. New would be good with me if they're available. I'll check their website.
I appreciate the response and possible help.
Stay safe out there...

Thank you sir for your service also. It is hard to believe but I retired 10 years ago and joined the corporate world. Being a part of the Army was a great thing for me. It looks like you are just up the road a little ways from my home. I'm away on an assignment in Texas now but kept my home in Illinois.
