1985 Excella alum alloy wheels

My 84 service manual indicates that some models of AS of this vintage had disc brakes. My coach does not. I received a quote from Inland RV on replacing axles, shocks and adding new Disc brakes as well as centramatic balancers. They cautioned me saying the original alum alloy wheels will not clear the new disc brakes.

Has anyone had direct experience with this? Inland says some folks use spacers and the interference is approx 1/4 inch.

I am looking for as much info as I can get before making this investment.

thank you in advance,
ol' bill

well no info, yet but...

I thought the wheels were non-descript, but I found some stamped numbers on the backside of the wheels.
Does anyone know who manufactured these wheels?

markings:
1) GF 553 279 480 967
2) HF 534 994 553 784
3) GG 482 967 553 279
4) GF 553 279 483 967

they are all marked "forged"

Thanks, Bill

How about a good photo of the backside of one of your wheels?
