Ok, I found that I need to talk to Jerry at Centramatics to get the proper fit for an Airstream. Has anyone installed Centramatics onto a new(er) Airstream? I see that some of the older drum based axles needed spacers, etc. I'm hoping that these will simply bolt right up. Anyone know if these are plug and play type mounting on new(er) units?

I have a damaged 2002 aluminum 15" Alcoa factory rim. Does anyone have one that they would sell to me? The factory no longer supplies the part 400935.

Thanks.

Depending upon how badly damaged the wheel is, it may be repairable. I recently had all of the wheels on my '75 Cadillac Edlorado restored by a shop not too far from you -- one of their specialties is wheel restoration. The contact information for the shop is as follows:
Fairchild's Hubcaps, Tires & Wheels
20 Currency Drive, #1
Bloomington, IL 61704
Phone: 309-663-9000

They were quite reasonable on the work they had to do to bring my wheels back into usable condition.

Good luck with your search!

Kevin

Thanks Overlander; I'll give them a call. A shop in Dayton can repair the rim, but it's expensive, and perhaps a used aluminum rim in good condition would be more reliable.

I read through this thread because I have the same problem as Davidz71. I have the centramatics, they don't fit. I want new rims, but don't know what to get. I have a price for some chrome ones from Discount tire by my house, but don't know if aluminum ones are better? I think I know what tires I need--Maxxis D load M8008, yes? I just was bumbed when the centramtics didn't fit, but don't want to go through all the trouble of spacers, longer bolts, drilling bigger holes, etc. when I want new rims anyhow. Just am trying not to break the bank completely on this tire/wheel thing! Did Davidz71's work out, or no? Anyone else?

I wound up getting 15" aluminum alcoa rims & maxxis tires. I called Centramatics & told them that my balancers didn't fit. The man looked up my receipt & said someone sent me the wrong ones! They paid for me to send them back & sent me the proper size. I took the trailer out once since I got the new set up. My son also put on new shocks. She pulled like a real piece of butta! I purposely put a plastic clock on the formica table & it was still there when I arrived at the campsite.

I forgot to mention that the offset on my wheels is zero.
