wheel needed for 74 Overlander

I don't know if anyone has located a vendor for replacement wheels for a 74 overlander. We called Park and Inland, and neither have the wheels. The PO replaced with a wheel that never quite fit right. At this time my husband is taking care of the brakes, bearings, etc, but said the wheel is no good, and when we checked these two suppliers, they didn't have any. We are also working with our local trailer repair/salvage shop. So far, no luck! Any help would be appreciated.

Try Colaw's RV Salvege, they are parting out many Airstream trailers.
Also, a search for "trailer wheels" might bring more options.
The wheel size should be 15x6, offset "0"

RV Salvage yards

Used RV wheel should fit the bill.

Here's a link. - http://www.ccis.com/home/mnemeth/rvsalvage.htm

There is a yard in Lebanon PA that may help.

If what you are seeking is a standard trailer type steel wheel, your Good Year dealer may be able to source a wheel for you. My local dealer was able to source trailer rated wheels with 2,600 pound capacity for my '64 Overlander through one of his regular sources (in '98, they were $49 each) - - they were a special order from a catalog and took about 72 hours for delivery. The Good Year dealer that I usually patronize is in a rural area and services semis, farm implements, trucks and passenger cars as well as RVs of all types.

Good luck with your search!

THanks for the info. We were able to get a new wheel from Delaware and also got a used one from Colaws. So we even have a spare! But for a while there it looked pretty bleak. The PO had a wheel on that didn't fit well and messed up some things. Right now we are looking pretty good.
