Tire and wheel help

I have searched high and low for a spare tire and wheel for my 1999 Safari. Airstream stopped dealing with their old supplier of wheels and is currently searching for a new one so they cannot provide me with a wheel in until they find one. I have an extended trip coming up and do not feel comfortable not having a spare.

If anyone knows where I can get at least the wheel for a ST205/ 75R14 tire please let me know. The Marathon tire is readily avaliable so no problem there.

Thanks,
Ken

Welcome to the ASForums Ken! Many happy returns...

Colaws is a mega-RV recycling business in Carthage, MO. I googled on Colaws RV and the answer came right back to these forums! If you put 'Colaws' in the search box above I'd bet you'll get any number of responses. A wheel should be no problem for them! I don't know why an Airstream dealer couldn't answer this for you?

You mentioned Safari? Your manual should be able to tell you that you can limp into town at under 45 or 40mph on 3 good tires if you've removed the bad one.

I had no spare with the Argosy but haven't had a problem in approx 2000 miles of towing. The new Safari does have a spare -- guess I do feel better with that quite honestly!

Ken, try these people. We bought a set of tires for a 77 Argosy from them, just make sure they sell you the correct weight rated wheels:

In a worse case scenario bring the spare tire. If you have a service tire flat, you would have to unhook, and remove the service tire & wheel. Then drive to the nearest service store. That doesn't really help at 11pm on Friday nite. However it's better than not having the tire at all.
