Correct Wheels "78" Ambassador

I'd like to replace the steel wheels on our "78" 28' Ambassador with nice aluminum wheels. I know they are 15" and have 6 lugs...what else do I need to know. Or does anyone on the forum know the correct wheels to use. Thanks!

Correct Wheels "78" Ambassador

Greetings Bob!

The detailed specifications include:

15" X 7"
6 Lug
5.5 on Center
Offset = 0
Overall Width = 8
4.28 Center Bore
2600 LB (minimum capacity).
Max PSI-at least 65

I used these specifications when ordering new aluminum wheels for my Overlander and they worked out beautifully . . .

Good luck with your research!
