Looks like the proper wheel for your trailer. The zero offset is what Airstream is supposed to have. I don't know what type of wheel cover you plan to use, but the clips are not on these wheels to use the baby moon hubcaps.

New wheels

The center bore is the only specification that concerns me. The new wheels that I just had installed on my Overlander have a bore of 4.25" and I don't think anything smaller would have fit over the hub center on my 64' Overlander. It would be worth measuring this dimension before ordering.

Thanks for the help! I will check out the center diameter before we order. I called vintage to ask if they would fit, but they have not called me back yet.

I just got new wheels

I just got a pair of these:

15 X 6 (6 bolt on 5.5") Black OEM style wheel for use with Baby Moon hub caps.
0 offset, 3.65 pilot, rated at 2,600# at 75 PSI


FROM:
15 X 6 655 Black OEM style wheel for use with Baby Moon Hub Caps

They fit my 1965 Safari perfectly. They don't have clips for the old style hubcaps but there are newer versions of the Baby Moons that will fit.
Although they were out of stock at Traile tires and wheels.
The 3.65" center hole was the same as the old split rims I took off.

The wheels are USA made, trailer specific wheels by Dexter Wheel Company. I suspect that the wheels that Vintage Trailer Supply and Inland RV also come Dexter.

I saw a post by someone else that got wheels from these guys, so I gave them a try, seems like a good outfit.

I ended up purchasing the wheels that I mentioned in the original post and they fit just fine!
