I got them from TrailerWheels.com. They are aluminum, HWT, rated @2840#. I'll post more pics after I install them.

Great looking wheels. I suppose these wheels are rated for side inpacts too? Our trailer wheels are subjected to stresses that far exceed side impacts of tow vehicles when making turns.

Is there a speed rating for wheels? I know there is for the tires, but wondered if there is for wheels. I know this debate goes on for ever on the tires and air pressure, etc., but I don't recall the wheels being brought into the discussion.

I'm not sure about the side impact rating? They are "Trailer" wheels and had the highest load rating I could find and a good price also.

Thanks Ron, I hope to have them installed this weekend but it may be next.

TN-TUNDRA If they are trailer wheels, I am sure they have been specified and tested for their intended purpose. I look forward to seeing these installed on the AS. Bet they will look great.

Rivet Great Looking Wheels!

Hi TN-TUNDRA,

They look great!!! Can’t wait to see photos of the installed version. A ’70 31’ Sovereign should make them look very well indeed. It’s always good to hear from the guys with the smaller trailers, read that, only have to buy 4 wheels and tires. (Forgive me, after living in the 24’ Trade Wind, I just got the 34’ Excella this year. It was staying in my brothers ’84 32’{31’?} Excella that started me looking for a bigger AS.)

Also, welcome to the forums. After bringing Collierville up on Google Earth, I see that you are only about 175 miles away. By Forum standards, we are neighbors. After checking your profile, I see that you are an MCSE. Well, these are interesting times. I did the whole training program just prior to NT. Never took the tests because they were for 2000.

LR is just across te river. I'm planning a trip to the Buffalo River in Ark next summer. Hopefully the weather will be nice this weekend. I'm going down to where the AS is located. I'll take some pics.

I have to keep up with all the MS updates and new versions all the time. But they do keep me busy and pays the bills.
