Now that we're checking out tires, my hubby wants to get some fancy wheels. Any suggestions where we can find the proper size made by Alcoa?
When I checked my bookmarks, I found the link below that was posted by 59Toaster as a good source for wheels that are nearly identical to what Airstream is currently using on its new coaches:
You can also obtain the new aluminum wheels as used on the current Airstreams from an Airstream Dealer or Authorized Service Center. I also found that my local Good Year dealer had a catalog of wheels (including numerous aluminum models with applications for trailers) that could be special ordered - - when he ordered mine, the shop personnel took one of the wheel/tire combinations from my coach and measured all of the critical dimensions and place the order for new tires and wheels (the advantage of folllowing this method is that if there are any errors in the ordering process it will be the mistake of the dealership personnel).
Good luck with your search!
