Choose our wheels - poll

We need to buy some wheels for our Argosy 24 'project' and are undecided about which ones to choose. Anyone have an opinion?

Here's what we need:

15" wheel
6 in width
6X 5.5 lug pattern.
Center bore 4.25 or better
offset: O

Normally I'm a big fan of the mod wheels like #3, but for your Argosy, I think #1 would look great!

A lot depends on what is going to be in the center hole. #1 is the only one that shows a center piece.

wheel load rating

Do all the choices meet the recommended load rating for your size trailer? Just a thought.

I like the look of #3 -- and the thought of a laser-cut billet supporting the trailer helps, too!

I like #2.
#1 screams "steal me", #3 says "1975"(I had a set on a '74 Torino), #4 looks a bit plain, #5 looks too delicate, and #6 looks like something I would find on a truck.

hi j and g...

NO on #1 which looks way to bling ish unless u are planning exterior mods to match it.

NO on #5 and #6, these look exactly like the alloys on new units AND have corrosion issues...

marginal yes on #3, rotary dial wheels look great, especially when they match the tv wheels...

big YES on #2 or #4, classic 5 spokes ALWAYS look sharp and never look out of place.

and i suspect the retired alcoa classic 5 spoke can be found used and will fit perfectly.

and since they aren't clearcoated can be mirror polished!

cheers

I like the #2 wheel also--simple, easy to clean and would look appropriate with a vintage unit.

Happy Birthday, Janet!

I had bought the #3 wheels for my safari. They look great with ROUNDED trailers.

I have looked them over long and hard, and I keep going to #2.

Well, you asked for opinions! And that's what you got....at least 12 different ones....

What design would Janet like? That's the question.
