To add whitewalls to a trailer rated tire, do a search for portawalls/tires. This is a whitewall that is "applied" to a tire of any type. It is held in place under the rim and looks great. One draw back to anything being applied to the sidewall, is that is makes it more difficult to look for deterioration cracks in the tires.

I've seen one with the wheel covers that slide into the channel. They matched the color of the Awning fabric - which on the model I saw was not a Zip Dee. Apparently there is cording sewn into the top of a rectangular piece of awning fabric. The corded fabric fits inside the "C" channel and is just pulled in from the side. Seems quick and simple to cover and uncover the wheels. Much less fuss than the fitted covers that go all the way around the wheels.

It looks good. I'm partial to wide whites - don't see them on trailers too often but more and more folks pulling vintage trailers with vintage cars are doing this.

Porta walls are a good option if you find the paint doesn't stand up. They've been around forever. Make sure you get an extra pair in case you happen to lose one - it has been known to happen.

Thanks Chuman70. There are quite a few folks on the forum who tow with vintage cars, or at the very least have them in stock and use them extensively.

I'm trying to decide if I want to put WW on the Flying Cloud if we put them on the car. It's still up for debate as we also tow the trailer with our truck from time to time.

I think that's way cool! I have already been talking to my tire guys about doing the black wheels and baby moons when we put new tires on this winter. Not sure I'd be brave enough to do the wide whites though - that and I remember the last time I had a car with white walls I spent a lot of time scrubbing them white again!

I lost some retainer clips on one of my wheels while having the bearings repacked. Does anyone know where I might find a replacement wheel like these? I can't stand missing a baby moon!!!

Check out Chevs of the forties

Chevs of the 40s Store

I suspect they may either have the replacement clips or wheels or can tell you where to find them.
