Any help or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Mike P.S. If you know of 4 original covers or any that resemble them I would be interested.
For the most part, 15" full wheelcovers from full-size automobiles will fit the wheels used on Airstreams. When my coach thew one of its wheel covers, I purchased a set of 15" Cadillac Eldorado wheel covers (1971-1978), and they fit the wheel and cleared the dust cap as well as the fender well - - also tried 15" Cadillac DeVille wheel covers (1969-1975) and they worked as well. I used the Cadillac wheel covers while searching for an Airstream cover to match those that were on my coach dating to 1970s updates by the original owners.
With patience, you can locate either NOS new wheel covers for your Airstream, or there is a vendor who offeres a similar reproduction wheel covers on E-Bay from time to time. Recently, I have noted that when the true Airstream wheel covers sell via E-Bay auction the price generally approaches $50 (each) with NOS covers going slightly to somewhat higher.
Good luck with your search!
