Hey gang, I am going to be picking up this Airstream in June. I need some advise because the Airstream has been sitting for over 20 years in this very spot and the owner does not believe that the tires will make it out of the parkinglot due to their age.
My plan is to eventually put new axles under the trailer with new brakes. But I will have to buy new tires now. I was gong to just go get new tires and nicer or better rims for it all at once, thus eleminating the need to jack it up, remove the rims and have tires mounted on the old rims, ect.
So I see nicer looking rims on many of these trailers and some even look like dish style or more of a hotrod look.
first, I didnt check the last time I was there but what came stock on this, its a 1968
30 ft Sovereign
second, what rating do i need for new rims and if I buy new rims, will they fit on the new axles I buy for it? I plan on getting new axles from Andy, but have not decided if I am getting disc brakes or regular and dont know if that makes a difference. I just dont want to spend money on new tires and rims and that not be able to use them on the new axles.
