Hello all ,
Yes I am bothered by the concord tire deal in the engine ,many lives lost .Seems lives are always expendible to save that stinking dollar .I never liked the airline hassle and Now after this tire discussion and the fact that aircraft tires are reused ,cord showing ,recaps ,holy moly.How many people here have recaps on there airstreams??, I like it less than ever. Andy has that junkyard wheel at the shop with the center ripped out from a customers trailer ,so I can understand his hard line stance on the used wheel ,that being said that wheel as shown on the website is an old 6 bolt chevy pickup wheel from a fifty or so 1/2 ton pickup ,yes I know because I had one from an old
wheel pile at a tire shop ,the clips around the center give it away as they retain the hubcap as do the original split rims airstream wheels .I am a enthusiest of the 1950's chevy advanced design trucks .Anyway ,all used wheels are not junk or unusable ,but the history is unknown ,new wheels are not expensive ,so why bother with them ? At least you know what you have
and the 2600# rated wheel for trailers is readily available from many sources including Inland RV or many other RV sources .
