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

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

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

I need to buy wheels before Janet's Birthday on the 12th. So any help would help.

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!

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

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.

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

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