They also have tires and can ship them to you already mounted on the rims.

All I can say is wow!!! these are beautiful!!! I'm going with these instead. Will they carry the tires you recommended in your previous post? I'll have them mount and ship everything.

Chris; thanks for researching this on their site. I didn't think you were a fan of Marathon tires since you had mentioned the other brand in your post. Is this the setup you are also going with yourself? Can you send me a link of the correct tires on their site too. I see several listed there for Marathon. Any other details too as far as hub,nuts,valve stem, etc. thanks. I'm thinking I will keep the old tires and rims I currently have and slap these on each fall for storage and bring the good rims and tires inside out of weather and away from UV rays for protecting the rubber over the winters. Thanks

I have no personal experience with GYM`s. There are several threads regarding tread seperation and tire failure for them. However they sell lots of these tires and that is what the airstream dealers sell. I did some research here and Yoko`s were $129,GYM`s $135 and Michelins were $170. Lots of guys are going with Michelins.
Tires: ST225/75R15 LRD Goodyear Marathon Radial Special Trailer Tire
Nuts: Stainless Steel Capped Lug Nut -- 1/2 inch, 3/4 Hex
Center Cap: Stainless Steel Center Cap -- 4.25 Open End w/ Plastic Plug
Valve Stem: Valve stem TR600HP high pressure chrome for 0.453 valve hole, snap in style with 100 psi cold inflation pressure 2.48" overall length
Balance: Spin Balance Aluminum Wheel and Tire Assemblies
I have`nt decided what tire to go with my yoko`s are fine but old so they should be replaced before I go on a long trip,which won`t be until next fall at the earliest. I`m a long way away from using the trailer. I`m still trying to get the shell closed up for winter and I have no interior yet. Just an empty shell on a brand new chassis.

thanks Chris; my two son's are voting for th original retro look with the black rims and moon covers instead of the newer modern look. Anyone looking to cast a vote please chime in with a posting or two. I do want my kids involved with my restoration/renovation project too, so I'm leaning to following their request. We will be doing the new axles and new rims in the Spring.

Chris just verifying this is everything I need and these will fit my 65 airstream. I plan to order 2 new axles too from Andy.
