Correct specifications for '78 wheels

I have factory wheels on my '78 Argosy. They are looking pretty mangy.

I also have a set of five 15" X 7 (3.5" back space) stock chrome spoke, 6 X 5.5", heavy duty steel wheels from a Landcruiser that look like they will fit.

Before I change things around, I would like to have the correct specifications for replacement wheels, if anyone has them.

Thanks.

If they fit, that's great.

BUT they must also have a rating of at least 2600 pounds each, as per Airstream. If not, they will most ikely fail in service.

also check your offset. they might need to be zero offset for the trailer.

Andy - from my long experience with Landcruisers, I am certain that they are rated above 2600 lbs. I will double check the Landcruiser manual, though, and thanks.

Well, I think the Airstream specifies zero offset. I am fit checking the wheels before I start moving tires around ;-)

Thanks.
