Question on rim size

Not trying to hijack the thread but-I am about to go haul a 66 Tradewind home and it needs new tires. Found a nice set of 5 trailer tires on 6 hole Chevy pickup rims but the center hole is about 3 9/16" diameter. Question will they fit??

Cheers, John

They might fit however the usage won't. Meaning the pick up rim wasn't made for the service of the Tradewind. The Tradewind needs a heavier rated rim.

I also believe the AS will need a 3 5/8 center hole.Your rim should be rated @ 2500#. Dave

That should be 2600 pounds, not 2500.
