WE have a Redneck Trailer supply here in town. It's the first place I look for general trailer and towing stuff. Great selection, good prices, and helpful friendly people.

Redneck ROCKS!!!! I use them a great deal. You will need to determine if that is 6 on 5.5" or 6 on 6" however. I think it is the first...

It would not surprise me if El Rey's use the same rims as Airstreams as they are a knock off anyway. If I remember right the Airstream rims are 6 bolt 5 1/2 on center 0 offset rim. Which is the same as a Chevy or Jeep rim.

Can you post some photos of your El Rey? I know Marshal used the term knock off, but my experience is that the El Reys were made with a totally different level of quality. I would love to see some photos.

El Rey Rims

I don't know how to send photos on this venue. I'm not sure what to do. If I mention where I have it listed does that break rules on this site?

In this case "knock off" does not mean bad. They are quite collectable.
