Same P30 Chassis, should be same wheels. The only Landyachts that would have different Alcoa's, would be the Spartan chassis diesel pushers; none made in 1990, IIRC.

No prob. Shout if you need anything. I am beginning to realize I got lucky with the set I found. Relatively good condition and a good price.

So Keyair, tell me about wheels ( or hubs, or drums, or rims) the manual says that I use bias ply tires unless my rims are stamped "radial". But that was a 1981 manual. Have rims changed over the years? Do they no longer say radial and are radials mounted on all of today's wheels? I'm not trying to be stuuupid here, just trying to get it right the first time. The manual of 1981 says don't put radials on rims not so marked radial as wheel failure can occur. OK the tire guy tells me that radials are mounted on all the wheels these days. While I listen to his expertise I still try to follow what the mfgers originally said since I am dealing with a mostly original machine. Can I use original wheel rims and radial tires or do I search for newer rims? I don't want to burden myself with un-necessary debt, but then I don't like walking either. The tire guy says it is difficult to find bias ply tires anyway. I'd rather have radials but not at the expense of wheel failure. Motorcycles I know pretty good; motorhomes not so much. I'm just an fng here.

Alcoa Aluminum Wheels

Me and a buddy drove 50 miles yesterday after one of our firefighters found a add for eight 6 X19.5 Alcoa wheels, Contacted the people that I was coming, got there and they had six aluminum and two steel wheels with Michelin 8R19.5 tires with great thread but older than dirt. Bought the six aluminum and told them to call when he had time to get them off, started back and had drove 48 miles back (two miles from home) and he called saying they were ready. So we both laughed turned around and went and got them ending with a 220 mile journey when all was done. I Was tickled to death, only thing needed is the rear hub covers a good cleaning and buying a new set of tires. Attached a pic of one of them.

Alcoa Aluminum Rims

I am picking up four of my Alcoa aluminum rims at the end of next week from the polishing guy. I had a couple questions. Does anybody know of a supplier that carries the S/S rings and front and rear center caps for these wheels. Mine have a orange peel look and the polisher tried to get one of them polished out but it did not come out. Having new tires put on and was wondering if the 225 tires are working out or go back with the 8R/19.5. I found a small town tire shop that can get the Hankook H35 and Samson tires in 8R/19.5 and mount them for me. The big tire stores around me don't mount 19.5 tires, don't understand that but that's their loss. Want to finish this project soon. Thanks

Im running the 225s on the 370LE, its nice having the extra rubber on the ground, but remember its a different chassis altogether. The Gillig is more truck like than the P30/32. I still have the 8Rs on the 325LE. The 370LE rims are a little wider than the 325LE. Although they are both 19.5 the 370LE is 6 hole verses the 325/345/350 which is 10 hole. Regards, Bob
