Can anyone I.D. these wheels -Need centers



I got these off a 1973 27 footer, and deperately need some center caps. Push through and 3.75" in diameter. Can't find that size anywhere. If they are Airstream, they should be Alocoa, shouldn't they? Anyway, anyone know of a source for at least two?

Welcome to the forums.
You can give Redneck Trailer Supply a call, they may have them in stock.

I read my first post over, it may give the wrong impression. I have a full set of the wheels and only need the push through center caps. Since the wheels do not have a brand name on them, if anyone knows who made Airstream wheels, that might be helpful.

I believe they are Alcoa wheels.

Center Caps

Find them at a Hupcap store.
They have books that ID hubcaps and centers.
Do you know what to torque the fasteners on those Aluminum wheels?

Those are the wheels and centers in your photo. The centers are a real problem, two of mine were ruined and I just can't find them. No where that I have tried has access to 3.75 inch centers.

Mine have the Airstream emblem in the center and they should be available from Airstream.

Mine don't have an emblem, unless it was a "stick on". They look the same as the ones in the picture above. I'll try AIrstream. Typicaly, center caps are $3-4.00 items. We'll see what Airstream has to offer.

Airstream responded that they are no longer available. As I mentioned, the price is usually very reasonable, it is the 3.75" which is the problem, I eyeballed a Nissan pick up the other day. They have caps in the close neighborhood of 3.75".

Lug nuts torque to 90-95 foot pounds. They need to be checked at 50, 100, 1000, 6000, and every 6000 miles thereafter.

I have an identical set of 4 from an Excella c/w with centers that I'm willing to sell. Condition is very good to excellent minus. One center has a dent that could be massaged out.
I will not sell them individually unless enough members PM me with requests for same ( or pairs).

Centers AND wheel availability

SOUTHWEST WHEEL now have the Alcoa Wheels for Airstreams- the spoke kind.
They sell lugs, lug nuts, centers, etc. for trucks, trailers, etc. You can even purchase axles from them.
Southwestwheel.com has a 1-800 number listed. Call them with you required measurements and I'm sure they can supply.
