The 8-lug wheels are the same as any Chevy 1-ton 8-lug from the 70s and 80s and possibly 90s.

You should be able to go to any large wrecking yard and find decent aluminum wheels. Or any wheel supplier should have them.

There is no doubt the motorhomes look better with the aluminum wheels compared to steel wheels with chrome covers.

The Alcoa are nice but it does not look like the off set is for a trailer but rather a truck. I think the off set on the trailer is zero.

At 6th from the bottom of this page is an 8 lug zero off set wheel.
Trailer Tires and Wheels - trailer tires, boat trailer tires, trailer wheels, boat trailer wheels, aluminum trailer wheels

I am using the 6 lug just above it with 16 in tires now that 15s are not being made by any manufacture of quality.

I believe he was looking for wheels for an Argosy motorhome.

thanks HowieE for the link the tire deals look pretty good. Locally the best I can do is 100 a tire plus tax.
